About

OUR STORY

The story is set in the present day, but it's a world that is much different from the one we live in. In this world, slavery was never abolished. It is still practiced in America. It has grown into an important US industry.

Our protagonist is a young slave named Noah. Intelligent, and highly trained in areas such as the culinary arts and mechanics, Noah escapes his owner and sets off on a journey to get out of the country in order to reach the rumored freedom refuge in Canada.  

Once finished, we will enter the film into every major festival. From there we will look towards getting a theatrical release. 

Our goal is to make a film that no one has ever seen before. We want it to be something people will never forget.

PRODUCTION

We are in pre-production on the film right now. The first day of principal photography begins on Saturday, July 16th. We have cast all of our actors. Our four lead actors are amazing talents. 

We will be shooting the film on digital with our own equipment. The camera we are using is the Canon 5D Mark II. We have all the lighting and sound equipment we need. 

Shooting will finish in the last week of August.

We are making this on a very low budget. The script was tailored specifically for a low budget. 

We will incorporate the use of handheld camera-work and natural lighting to create a sense of realism in the film. The 5d Mark II is capable of capturing fantastic images and we will use it to it's full potential. 

WHAT WE NEED THE MONEY FOR

Although we are in production, we are short of the funds we will need to finish the film. We need money for many aspects of the production. Locations, props, actors, wardrobe, food, and travel.

We have found some fantastic locations to shoot in, but we don't have enough money to rent them out for the amount of time we need them for. We found a great house to rent that is perfect for the film, but is out of our price range. We have a basement full of props, but we still need a lot more. Our amazing costume designer is trying her hardest to keep the wardrobe budget under $700, and some more money will give her the freedom she needs to work her magic. Food has to be provided for our crew and actors each day, and after a few weeks that all adds up to quite a lot for just food. 

The money will give us the opportunity to make this film to it's full potential.
