About this project

CAN WE ACHIEVE OUR GOAL? 

Absolutely!

$20,000 dollars may not be much by Hollywood standards, but it is a great start for an indie-film. Can we achieve our goal? I believe we can exceed it! A higher production budget can result in a higher production value. This increases the value of your rewards and our project. 

THE PROJECT

Peril is a science fiction action-thriller we plan to shoot in the near future. Before we can do this, we need to finish a short-film (proof of concept). This will show interested investors and industry creatives that the project is a worthy investment. Thus, we need your help! Please support us to execute this ambitious indie-film project! 

All monies raised will go towards pre-production and production of the short-film (proof of concept). If we exceed our project goal, the exceeding money will go toward the pre-production of the feature length film. 

The funds raised will be used for equipment, sets, props, casting, and to help support living expenses during the shooting of the short-film. During the production we (freelancers) have no income as we dedicate all available time and resources to the project. In other words, Peril will be our full-time job and we will invest our time and money to support the project.

Please visit our facebook page to share ideas, show support, and to just say hello. We'd be happy to see you there! You can also visit the Peril website at http://www.wix.com/vividshade/perilmovie#!

PERIL                                                                                                                      "There are some places in the universe we should not boldly go." 

Logline: After terminating her pregnancy and failed marriage to go on a mission to a distant planet, a tenacious first-time Captain seeks personal redemption. She finds it–––while locked in a deadly game of cat and mouse with an alien menace.
Synopsis:
Peril is a smart character-driven story set in the future about Vanessa Bains, a tenacious and ambitious first-time Captain, who struggles with her decision to terminate her pregnancy and failed marriage for a once in a lifetime opportunity to mine a distant planet. Seeking redemption for choosing the mission over building her family she finds herself on an extraordinary journey into deep space. 

While on the mission, Bains must lead a crew who resents her for replacing their beloved first Captain. Things begin to unravel horribly when a series of mysterious equipment and systems' failures leads them to mistrust one another. Much worst, the crew soon discovers that they are being stalked by a malevolent alien menace bent on their destruction. 

In order to survive, Captain Vanessa Bains must keep her crew together and send out an intergalactic distress signal–––what responds will change her forever... sometimes redemption is the beginning of a bigger journey. 

Peril backstory and future plans: 

"Peril"  is only the beginning. Its the first chapter and introduction to the Peril storyline and intended franchise. In the sequel "Perilous" our heroine Captain Vanessa Bains makes a surprising return. In the sequel "Perilous" and prequel "Peril: Evolution"  we discover that mankind actually existed, evolved, and abandoned Earth long before the earliest known human civilization. These two projects explores further the malevolent alien creatures, our ancestor's journey into outer-space, evolution, and the story's heroine Captain Vanessa Bains.

THE MANY FACES OF CAPTAIN VANESSA BAINS

Vanessa Bains is a tenacious and ambitious individual who embarks on a journey which will define her as a heroine and interesting character in the sci-fi genre. She is smart, bold, sexy and flawed in some ways. We decided to cast her as a black female. Making her character even more interesting, because in this genre we simply do not see black women depicted this way in films. 

*WE ARE CURRENTLY CASTING FOR THE LEAD CHARACTER CAPTAIN VANESSA BAINS! Please send your head shots ,resumes, and links to demo reels to vividshade01@yahoo.com.

WHO IS LT. RICARDO CRUISE?

Ricardo Cruise is one of the antagonists in PERIL. He's a skilled officer with a hidden agenda. He is cocky, arrogant, brash, and sometimes a jokester. He is also Vanessa Bain's biggest adversary. He will do whatever it takes to survive, even if it means everyone else dies.
