A short about love and violence, shot in New York City.
Synopsis: 'Solomon' follows the chain of events that triggers the kidnapping of a young man.
We are Good Baby Films, a loose collective of filmmakers with a passion for narratively-nuanced, visually daring, character-driven short films. For this project, a single image served as the creative spark: a solitary man, beaten, and trapped in a large impersonal warehouse. How did he get there? Who could do this to a person? As we mused over possible answers to these questions, our investment in this image deepened, and the concept of 'Solomon' was born.
In order to tell the story of this film as effectively as possible, we need your help! The use of particularly dark locations and long-takes, in addition to our need to shoot with variable frame rates at high resolutions, requires us to rent grip and lighting equipment as well as a specialized camera that, though perfect for the job, is more expensive than usual. Financial backing is needed mainly to cover these equipment rental and insurance costs. Other costs include travel, craft services, and location expenses.
Through this Kickstarter, we are attempting to raise $3400; this represents only a portion of our actual budget. All donations towards and in excess of this amount would be greatly and humbly appreciated.
