Double Negative is a feature film about 2 opposing characters wrestling with their inner demons when faced with their own mortality.
A film by Dana Scott and Mischa Ayoub
What seems like a chance encounter could be your last chance.
Double Negative is a truly unique film...
It is a unique story: the story of two vastly different strangers who get stuck in an elevator... that is falling, bit by bit. It is the real time telling of the journey they go on, individually and together, when faced with the possibility of the end.
It is a unique production: a true indie film, with a shooting budget of less than $15,000 and a 5 day shooting schedule (yes- you read that correctly). Shot entirely with a Chicago based cast and crew and entirely on the Canon 5D, Mark II. The entire film takes place in one location and with just two characters and will keep you engaged and intrigued until the last frame!
And it has had a unique post production experience: edited entirely by the co-directors/co-actors, Mischa and Dana, and now raising finishing funds via a grassroots Kickstarter campaign!!
Remember when filmmakers made films, not IMAX movie events or way-too-cute rom-coms, or obscure, esoteric rhetoric that only the filmmakers themselves could appreciate, let alone understand?
Remember when you could go to the movies and relate to the characters? Find yourself laughing at the dialogue? Make a meaningful connection between what was happening in your life and what was happening on the screen?
Remember when films weren’t simply okay, or good, but really, truly great?
We remember. We are Dana Scott and Mischa Ayoub, and we have completed production on a film based on the crazy idea that you can be both commercial and artistic at the same time. How did we do so much with so little money? We were creative, determined, and had the hardest working crew ever seen! Everyone who worked on the film did so because of their love of the project and their belief in our plan and guess what? We did it. We have an amazing final cut of our film! Now, we just need your help to finance the final stages of post-production: sound design, score composition and color correction and we have an amazing team of talented people ready and waiting to get started.
What will we do with your money?... We will use all the funds raised on Kickstarter to pay our color corrector, sound designer, and composer. We will also use the funds to pay for DVD production and festival submissions. Every penny of your donations will go toward making this film top notch and getting it into festivals and, hopefully, a distribution deal... something of which we can all feel proud to say, “I helped make that happen.” And when’s the last time you felt pride like that? Remember when…?
