"Black Water" is a five minute short film following a woman's kidnapping that ends in the middle of the desert.
*UPDATE* We made it folks! Thanks to everyone for all of your help and generosity! We are so happy to have such supportive friends and family! We still have 20 days left so we will continue to accept donations. Anything extra will go towards specialty equipment that will enhance the production value of our short, for example, a jib and a set of Anamorphic Lenses, which are our desired format for this short. Please continue to spread the word!
Hello friends, family, and net-surfers,
"Black Water" is the story of a young woman in the middle of nowhere. The events of the last hour loom overhead as she sits alone in an old Mercedes in the desert. She's past it now. For her, it is not the time to think about her hunger or her injury. With her last cigarette, she's left with the thought; where do I go from here?
Beyond this, "Black Water" is a story of two friends, putting themselves into a film. Our names are Ryan Ovadia and Daniel Ainsworth. We are trying to produce our first short film together. We've worked diligently over the last six months fine tuning our script and we are ready to put it into production. In order to accomplish this, we need your help and generosity.
All donations granted will cover the pre to post production expenses of the film. Donations will also help support our distribution to film festivals. We believe that this film is the start of something great and with your help it will be.
Remember with Kickstarter it's all or nothing, so no matter if you wish to donate $1 or $100, everything helps. And there are lots of cool rewards for people who donate, check them out on the righthand side of our profile page. We will be updating you with our progress and hope to reach our goal of $5,000.00 by Spring 2011.
