Presented in an elaborate and glossy commercial style, the story of the end of the world as we know it at the hands of a patsy messiah.
This book is the story of a patsy messiah that unknowingly, with the help of financial and political powers, is sent on a mission to destroy the world as we know it to put whats left of the power in the hands of evil men. A complicated visual story told in elaborate situational photography and stunning portraits, ripe with political, religious and social satire. The style can best be described as a very commercial style with no product.
The book is made up of 12-14 main conceptual photos that require many actors and large setups, and another 10-12 of simpler story portraits to fill in the gaps and further the characters.
In order to accomplish this project without making the mistake of plot holes and model's schedule conflicts we want to shoot everything at once as if it were a movie. Spending 3 weeks to shoot our principal photography with main talent, a week before for any pre-production photography(prop creation etc.), and a week of pick-up shots that don't involve the main cast.
The money is for location rentals and permits, costumes, practical special effects, prop and picture vehicle rentals, crew meals, if need be small pay to main talent to insure they will commit to such a serious schedule, and what we can toward printing costs. Most everything will be shot in Los Angeles or surrounding areas. Anything left over in the budget after production will be put into printing costs. We are not paying ourselves, everyone who works with us works for free because they are fans, and most talent have asked to be in the photos.
With your help we can create something that has not been done to this effect yet.
