She's the eyes, he's the trigger. Then she disappears. A near-future fable of sex & combat.
TRIGGER is an ambitious short film, so my team and I are going to need all the help we can muster to do this movie justice, and that starts right here with YOU.
You'll notice in the sidebar to the right that I'm offering various "rewards" in gratitude for your assistance with this project, and as TRIGGER approaches production, we may find even cooler swag to offer you.
Expect weekly updates here and through my blog at: cinemediasres.blogspot.com as this campaign matures.
One thing I can clarify about TRIGGER is that, despite the inspirational material loosely borrowed from Rod Serling, this is a very personal story to me and I think anyone who reads both scripts without knowing their connection would have a hard time spotting one. So don't let the "inspired by" credit fool you, this is heavily filtered through both my own experiences in combat as well as my personal storytelling sensibilities.
I know this is a rough time for everyone, but humans need good stories the same as we need good food. And for that reason, it's more important than ever to push for the kind of well-crafted, dynamic and personal filmmaking that can nourish us.
Right now, we're starving. But through TRIGGER, we can reclaim some of that nourishment.
Let's make it happen.
