A Sci-fi thriller Two detectives must expose the illegitimacy of a misguided, morality based health care system.
Please become a part of this intriguing project. Our first teaser recently received an Indie Award of Merit and the screenplay was just accepted into the Beverly Hills Film Festival. There's no where to go but up!
In this sci-fi thriller the recession has continued to escalate. The United States finds itself gripped by crippling depression. In a desperate attempt to control the population and rising health care cost the government begins rewarding healthful and moral lifestyle through a point system. At first, citizens were issued cards to track their every move. But when corruption and greed over take the point system the ’Chip Baby’ generation is born. With an embedded tracking device no indiscretion will go unpunished, no charitable contribution unrewarded. Two detectives must protect potentially devastating family secrets while working together to expose the illegitimacy of this new world order. How far would you go to protect the ones you love, if the system put in place to protect them was hurting them the most?
Thank you for visiting our Kickstarter page for POINTLESS. We have amazing plans to create Group 13 Production's second feature film on a seemingly impossible, shoestring budget. This eerily plausible, science fiction thriller, written and directed by Julie Ufema, promises to be a controversial and engaging story, including several personal experiences that will pull the audience deeper and deeper into this not-so-distant future existence.
POINTLESS is an independent film that needs your help to be brought to life. After learning SO MUCH on our first feature we have become experts at making a little go a long way. We are lucky to have the support of several local businesses and literally hundreds of Cen Penn folks excited to lend us their talent and locations once again. We have an amazing cast and crew (that will continue to be sorely underpaid) committed to making this an award winning film. Every dollar will make a difference. So please consider becoming a part of making this film.

What is the money for?
The actual budget for this film is approx. $75,000. If we were to film in another part of the country that number would easily double. Since Kickstarter is an all or nothing endeavor we are hoping that this money will enable us to begin principle photography ASAP. All money raised during this Kickstarter campaign will go directly toward production costs. These include: insurance, equipment rental, permits, food for cast and crew, transportation and lodging. The money will also go to buying media for our cameras, items for special effects, props, sets and wardrobe. We will be entering several film festivals and will need promotional materials, festival fees, and of course, DVD's.
HOW KICKSTARTER WORKS: Your credit card is only charged, if and when, we reach our goal. If we do not reach our goal by the project's stated deadline, we lose ALL the money that has been pledged.
All "goodies" are only redeemable if we reach our fund-raising goal. After that time, we will contact supporters to obtain any additional information necessary (ie. shipping address, sizes, etc.).
