What happens to human consciousness after death?
UPDATE---- 10/31/11 ----- WE DID IT! But remember, we are still accepting pledges. More pledges means greater production value. We only want the best quality camera and the best props and costumes and set pieces for this film and We Need You! Thanks to all current and future backers!
"Anima" is written and directed by Michael J. Stabile
REMEMBER: We can exceed our goal without limit. :)
THE ANIMA KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN!!
WHAT IS THE MOVIE ABOUT?
Neuroscientist Dr. Daniel Elcott is determined to discover what happens to human consciousness after death. His latest experiment goes horribly wrong when his subject dies. The institute responsible for his work plans to shut him down, leaving only one option: to perform the experiment on himself.
WHERE ARE WE NOW?
We are currently in the early stages of pre-production. We are building a schedule and locking down locations, cast, and crew. We expect to begin creating shot lists and storyboards by December.
PRODUCTION & TIMEFRAME
Most, if not all, of the photography will be done in or around Montclair, NJ. We will likely be looking at 12 to 14 days of production. Principal photography begins in February and we plan to wrap in early April. Post-production will likely finalize in June, allowing us to premiere the film in July.
THE MONEY GOES WHERE?
All Kickstarter funds will go toward props, costumes, set design, travel expenses, and feeding the cast and crew.
