A short film about an invisible zoo. Yes.
is a film about joy, friendship, and the quest for meaning.
It's also a film about an invisible herd of gigantic quasi-creatures and the community that cares for them.
The story focuses on a newcomer who upsets their fragile ecosystem.
The film begins shooting in May and will be completely finished by October of 2012.
This Kickstarter project will provide funding to help secure locations, a pick-up truck, gas/food, equipment rentals. (The main location has been secured - update #1) I've set the amount at $1,400 which will cover the most basic necessities. My hope is that this project will gain some momentum and get funded 200-300% so that we don't have to cut any corners. (this seems unlikely) I believe that this can be achieved through contributions of 10-20 dollars helped along by word-of-mouth. Please tell anyone who may be interested in helping us make this the best it can be.
NOTE: Even if this project is not funded the film will get made- albeit in a very diminished and compromised form, but with your help this can be something truly grand that we can all be proud of.
Thank you, and godspeed.
