A contemporary Greek tragedy of a man who sells out on a chance to live an authentic life with inescapably cataclysmic results.
We're raising money for the post production of our ambitious little film project called The Deception. We shot this film in 26 days this past summer, with help from the Puffin Foundation and family & friends.
The Story: The Deception is composed of two intertwining stories, one a gay coming-of-age story of a teenager nicknamed "Chip" and his first love; the second, that same character twenty years later. Now called Christopher and in the closet, he wants a life in politics, and is about to run for the Maryland Senate with the help of his fiancée’s family -- one of the most politically connected in Washington. But when Chris' first love resurfaces in his life, a man who re-ignites a passion in him, Chris’ carefully constructed world threatens to crumble around him.
We have set the "reserve" at the ridiculously low rate of $1500 to ensure we'll get the money, having been burned (it has to be said) by Kickstarter the first time we tried it, when our reserve wasn't met and we got none of the money that was pledged to us.
Post production is a very technical and expensive undertaking. Please help us toward our goal if you can.
