PHASE I : Thought collection and word finding.

Friends and creative collaborators, Gale Harold and Shirley Petchprapa are constantly playing with film concepts, character studies, experiments and art projects. The idea for this feature film comes from one of the common threads much of that work has shared: reconciling oneself with the real world and the worlds we create in our minds.

For this phase of the project we are raising money to help develop our ideas into a feature film. The bulk of what is raised will go to hiring a screenwriter for the first draft of the script as well as rewrites.

STORY IDEA - Sans specifics. We don't want to give too much away. Yet... :)

When a blizzard of external stress meets a flood of internal conflict one makes questionable choices. Add the elements of desperation and instability and you may wind up in a predicament more out of your hands than when you began.

Our protagonist Miller is experiencing such weather. Look out.

TEAM : Keeping the circle small for now...

When Shirley and Gale met they quickly realized that they saw the world in a similar light. They began collaborating on various unnamed experiments and projects from the start; building on their world-view and imaginations. Existing until now as an ongoing workshop of metaphor, image and experience, this film is built on conceptual discoveries made in those sessions. It follows their hunt for something lost and deeply missed...

They both also really like motorcycles.

Risks and challenges

We are a highly driven creative duo and are confident we will materialize this script through your help, our ideas and continued hard work.
There is no doubt that with the success of this campaign the script WILL BE WRITTEN.
Once this screenplay is written there are only two things that can stop us from getting it made; hell, or high water.

We appreciate all of your contributions and support for our endeavors on this project. THANK YOU! :)
