Everyone safeguards secrets, but Simon's is a dark one. It's become harder to keep, & one day it will escape. Sadly, that day is today.
Everyone safeguards secrets, skeletons in their closet if you may. Most people go on about their lives one day at a time. They are in control of their actions, and they are not constrained by their secrets. Their skeletons are locked up safely. But Simon is different from everyone else. His secret is a dark one—hiding it from everybody has become harder and harder. And his closet is so full of skeletons that it may one day burst wide open. Sadly for Simon, that day is today…
SCHIZO is a short film that will be produced in El Paso, TX. We have a talented crew and have most of what we need to begin production, but we DO need some extra budget money to help with minor expenses. As outlined in our video above, we need to feed our cast and crew, pay film festival submission fees, and create posters, flyers and other promotional items for the film's release. Props, storage devices, memory cards and gas are other examples of what our budget is being used on. Upon reaching our goal, we can begin production in August and have post-production done by November. Then starting in December 2012 we will begin screening the film in El Paso, TX, as well as taking it to any film festivals. You can contact us or visit our websites for more information, photos, videos, and insight.
SCHIZO is Directed/Produced By: Andy Ramirez and Written/Produced by: Felix Arrieta

The film SCHIZO is based on the short story of the same name. It was written by Felix Arrieta in early 2010 and was published by Phyllis Scott Publishing on July of 2011. Unfortunately the company filed for bankruptcy so the anthology where it was published is no longer available. Lucky for Felix, the rights to the story return to him and he can shop it around to try to get it republished.
The idea for the short film came about when Andy Ramirez read the short story (before it even was published) and said it could make a good short film. During that summer Felix and Andy got together to write a screenplay based on the story. There was a small casting call and a few people came aboard for production. Sadly, time was not on their side. They had to put the project on hold because of Felix’s obligations with school. The script has been resting in the shelves for a whole year, but now that school is out it is ready to see the light of day!
