To shoot or not to shoot? At what point does your job trump having compassion?
WE HAVE REACHED OUR ORIGINAL GOAL!!!
Thank you to everyone who has pledged. We will make you proud and create an amazing piece. We are setting a new goal of $55,000. This project will remain up until March 15th and then we start shooting! Any additional funds we raise will go straight into the production and will allow us to add additional scenes, build better sets and secure proper locations for the shoot. We can't thank you enough and look forward to bringing this to life. The out pouring of support has redeemed our faith in the creative spirit and know that all of you are the reason for that! Now when you pledge for a dvd, you really know that you are going to get one. :)
We are creating this film for the creative rewards, not monetary ones. Our hope is that this film will showcase the talents of many creative people and get us to the point where we can turn around and support the creative talents of the next team looking to explore. Thank you, thank you.
This film explores the fine line between being human and fulfilling your objectives. It's a good tale with a hell of twist. We have the full crew ready to go and they have all donated their time and any equipment they have. The funding will go toward hard costs of creating the piece. It will cover the construction of sets, permits, helicopter footage along the coast and a car and stunt driver. This is a real labor of love with so many wonderful people involved. Anything you can do to help us make it happen will be greatly appreciated.
Alex is a highly skilled shooter, a hired gun for a special clientele. We follow him on his current job as he retells how he came to be. We learn that his father, who pushed him to focus and hone his ability, trained him from a very young age.
Alex walks us through his first job and how awkward and messy it was. Quick on his feet, he learns fast and soon becomes the most sought after hire in town. We watch him as he floats from job to job with little to no emotional connection to those he shoots.
He tells his story in the first person as he drives along the pacific coast en route to his current gig. He is a man filled with darkness, attitude and cockiness and he has no idea how difficult this job will be. His current target is an attractive woman who will flirt her way into his mind. Alex must overcome her seduction to do his job. By the end we see what he is made of through a surprising twist of events.
Trent Ford will play the lead character. He has an extensive resume of films and will elevate this piece through his acting. His British accent will instantly add an edge to the character and the level of confidence will feel legitimate. Trent has the good looks and talent to bring this character to life. Here is a list of his credentials.
Sarah has been a fashion model for quite some time and will be a recognizable face to the role. I have photographed her and have spent time with her. She has the strength needed to pull off both the vulnerability and the seductive nature to her character. She is very easy on the eyes and is a perfect match to Trent Ford's Alex.
Nikki Sixx will play the role of the adulterous scoundrel. He currently has 250,000+ followers on twitter. He is in Mötley Crüe & Sixx:A.M., Author of 2 NY times best sellers,Co-owner of Royal Underground clothing & host's the Sixx Sense radio show which airs on XM radio and airs all over the world. Mötley Crüe recently finished one of the top ten tours of 2011.
How Kickstarter works
People pledge whatever they can. We have 45 days to make our goal. If the total reaches $44,000 then the credit cards of those who pledged will be charged. If we don't get there then no one will be charged. If we exceed the goal, and fingers are seriously crossed, then any extra funds will be used to make the film even better. All of the funds raised will be used only for the film. No one involved in the project, including cast and crew will make a penny. All of these wonderful people have donated their time to make this come to life.
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
