Two strangers are almost derailed by a choice between the familiar and the unknown, in a chance encounter at a train station.
This is our second approach to funding this project via Kickstarter.
As explained in our updated pitch video, we realize that our original goal of ten thousand dollars was psychologically daunting in the current economy. We still need that amount in the long run but we are breaking this project down into bite-sized chunks.
This chunk is called Production Costs. It's the bare minimum we need to get the film shot.
The Team: We want you to know who you are helping to support.

He discovered a passion for film making when he was cast as the lead role in an independent vampire movie called "Daddy's Boy."

Since then he has written and directed seven short films, along with thirteen episodes of an online series. His work has been screened at film festivals such as Action on Film International Film Festival in Los Angeles, and the National Film Festival For Talented Youth in Seattle.
