Shawn Hughes searches to find his father's killer but ends up revealing secrets he should have left burried in the past.
Shawn Hughes is a good kid with the wrong friends and some bad breaks in life. Witnessing his father's murder at eight years of age, throws him into a life long pursuit of finding his fathers killer. While attempting to avenge his father's death Shawn is cast into an unfamiliar criminal, narcotics dealing underworld, being guided by his childhood friend, Derrick Butler Jr., (D.B.), whose father has been incarcerated for most of his life.
The two fatherless boys go on to forge a bond that can not easily be broken, all the while becoming tossed inside a political, emotional, ethical web of deceit, love, jealousy, revenge, and hate. Ultimately secrets from the past threatens this bond of brothers and forces them to manifest what lies deepest in their own hearts. The outcome can't help but make you question. Is blood thicker than water?
WHAT WE NEED
We're starting this movie from scratch without the backing of a major studio, but along with independence comes cost. The money we obtain through kickstarter will be used on the following things:
- Post Production
We shot the entire conceptual trailer with $200 for food and props, so imagine what can be done with a little help from you! Remember it's all or nothing so please help us reach our goal. The more you give the better we can make this film.
Here is the original "Hearts of Men" poster designed by artist Pamela Skehan. We are very excited about this because we are all huge fans of her work! One look at her art and you can't help but to be captured by the depth and emotion of her pieces. Being able to collaborate with her on this project has been remarkable. Please take the time to view more of her work by clicking the photo below.
This piece she designed for the "Hearts of Men" poster will also be displayed on the signed postcards and T-shirts. Take full advantage of getting to know her now because we here at Hunterscope Productions believe that she will be a huge hit.
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
