A cerebral look in the mind of a serial killer. Harlan Granger, a global enigma, looks to film and reflect on his last day of freedom.
What is the story?
HARLAN is a short docu-drama based on the last day of serial killer's freedom.
The world famous Harlan-Joesph Granger has never been convicted and is now planning to turn himself in. Harlan contacts a notable serial killer blogger to come out to his desolate cabin and film his last day of freedom as he plans to turn himself in the next day.
We begin as the CAMERAMAN candidly interviews the well spoken and polite murderer. Asking the hard hitting question that force the unpredictable Harlan to confront what he's done and why he's done it. We get into the deep and twisted mind of a serial killer as we visit past crime scenes, highlight his methods, and face his reasoning and reaction to the horrible crimes he's committed over the last 10 years.
This cerebral short is violence free in action but heavy in content and should give a glimpse into the unknown mystery and unpleasant mind of one of the world's most famous murderers as well as challenge the audience and question the end result of harlan's intentions.
Scripted but shot as a documentary and filmed solely at a cabin deep in the woods. We are aiming for about a 10 minute runtime (subject to change).

Paying The Crew
Luckily we've got a solid crew willing to sacrifice their time for free to make this project happen, but we also realize certain aspects of filmmaking can make a film look/sound amateurish and want to hire some professionals to make this the best project possible. Specifically in the sound/editing department.
Like I addressed above most of these folks will be working for free, at the very least we want to feed them 3 squares a day and keep them happy. A good cook and a bulky Costco run could suffice.
Once we have a quality product our desire is to get this short film out to the controversial world of film festivals. There are literally thousands of festivals to submit and 90% require a fee to submit. There is no guarantee you will always be accepted but the options of different (and even world-wide) festivals expands if you have funds to submit them. This will get the word out about the film and, depending on the festival, offer awards and cash prizes if it's good enough.
Some minor items needed to help the production move forward. (i.e. Tape Stock, Gaff, Make-Up Supplies, Props, Etc.)
