The film tracks Holloway, a survivor in a post-apocalyptic world, as he races against towering beasts and robots to propose to Emma
(Note: See the second teaser here: http://vimeo.com/21946207)
Who hasn't seen a couple sweat through the timing of the proposal? When is the right time? When is it coming? How to do it? Which ring to get? When when when?
And this is Holloway and Emma's predicament. That, and they are a pair of scant survivors following an apocalypse.
For Holloway, the right time is right now.
The short film, SWEETHEARTS, shows his search for not just the right ring, but ANY ring, in the Wasteland. Even when he finds it, getting back to Emma is a road paved with the crushed hopes, and bones, of those who couldn't escape the towering beasts and robots that prowl the terrain.
Trust us, SWEETHEARTS is a helluva ride.
Your love and support (...and cold hard cash) will make it so we can bring this world to life on a grand scale. We've assembled a crack team of people who will trek out to the paradoxically grim and beautiful Salton Sea to do so, but taking them there, putting the best tools in their hands, and fulfilling the larceny of rentals, permits and insurance requirements is a pricey affair.
...but remember, if we don't meet our funding goal, we don't get a dime, and you wouldn't want to break Emma's heart, would you?
So, please, do Holloway a solid and help him make Emma's day. After all, in the Wasteland, it could be their last.
HUGE thanks in advance,
Sloane Korach (writer/director) and Dani "Danger" Konrad (producer)
