The current project that we are working on is a short film about two boys who use a dream world to escape the reality of being extremely sick. A 12yr boy Marco uses fantasy and role playing to deal with illness that at times isolates him to a bed. In his dreams Marco is strong, and battles his way through any obstacle, but in day he leans on his best friend Brian to help him overcome the effects mentally and physically. In all Marco is just like every other boy and wants nothing more than to play and have fun. His mother does all she can to inspire hope and treat him as normal as possible. A mother can only help and protect so much, ultimately his fate like everyone's is unwritten.
Regarding On Set Reward: Since we are almost completed with the shooting days for Elevate the on set experience reward may be on one of our other films we plan to be shooting before summer 2012.
Our Mission Statement
At heart, we are Dreamers. And through action, we believe we can make dreams real. Our purpose is to create an environment that fosters creativity, promotes mentorship, and encourages constant improvement in our crafts and as people. We believe that by elevating others we elevate ourselves, and to that end we've come together with a purpose greater than each one of us individually. We use imagination, commitment, action, reflection and evaluation to achieve excellence in the craft of storytelling. We support one another in individual achievement because we understand it makes us all better. We build each other and ourselves up and are conscience not to discourage. We strive for an environment of harmony and trust that encourages challenging oneself and others to do better and be better. Not leaving anything for luck, successes will be achieved by working hard and learning from failure, taking full advantage of all possibilities large and small, and developing teammate skills for larger gain and personal achievements. We exercise humility, knowing we have much to learn, and charity, knowing we have much to give, and being champions of others skills, talents, and capabilities, we push beyond conceived limitations. We understand that others only exponentially increase one’s greatness and excellence is the only standard we measure ourselves by. We show gratitude to those who help us and will be grateful for all that we gain along the way. We find meaning in being a part of something larger than ourselves and find passion in all things we do. We are the Dream Factory. We make dreams.
