Found Footage thriller film about a family man's battle with pornography and how he must rescue his son from it.
What this project is all about?
Harmless is a feature film shot in the popular found footage style. It's the story about a husband and father and his battle with a box of porn that is found in the closet. Once opened, the box of porn begins to torment the family, much like a poltergeist. It's sort of a social commentary on how pornography can destroy a family.
Why are we doing a project like this?
Because films are not only entertaining but they're also a way to teach people. Society learns their morals and values through music, film and television. Pornography is such a huge problem that simply telling someone how dangerous it is usually doesn't work. You have to tell a compelling story to catch someone's attention and then educate them while they're being entertained.
What will the funds be used for?
Although the style of the film looks raw and improvised, a lot of work goes on behind the scenes to ensure it's a quality project. Items like audio, lighting and special effects play a huge role in a project like this. The funds will be used to complete the edit of the film, color correction, special effects, audio mastering, music licensing and shooting the remainder of the scenes with your help.
Can you really make a movie for $12,500?
Of course you can. With today's technology and proper preparation, you can do just about anything. Remember Paranormal Activity? That was made for $10,000 and went on to be one of the most successful films of all time.
We have a dedicated team of cast and crew that are giving their time and talents because they believe in this project.
When will the project be released?
The first edit of the film is scheduled to be done by August. A private link will then be sent out to those who donated at certain tier levels to watch the film, give creative feedback and suggestions.
We'll then take all the suggestions and decide on which ones to use. If we use your idea, you'll be noticed, thanked and given a special award yet to be determined.
A next edit will be completed shortly afterwards with updated changes.Can we exceed the goal?
YES! YES! YES! Kickstarter allows as much money as is given before the deadline ends. That would mean a wider audience would see Harmless and the film would be booked into more theaters.
I have a question not covered, how do we contact you? You can contact us directly anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll get back to you as soon as we can.
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
