The Burning Ship Project encompasses the production of three short films: GRACE, SEARCH & RESCUE, and OH BABY.
Grace is a love story... about a man on the brink of suicide and a woman consumed by her Catholic guilt.
It's a dark comedy that challenges societal norms and religious customs. It's equal parts zany, funny, and sexy.
We are already finished with production on Grace and are moving on to our next two films.
However, we still need finishing funds for post-production, art and graphics design, music, and film festivals.
And Yes, Landis got to be in the movie.
SEARCH & RESCUE
Search & Rescue is a high concept narrative music video that we will be making with an up-and-coming band. It is a story about a scuba diver on a mission that enters an unknown world. As the people of this new world discover the scuba diver, they realize that he is here for a life-altering purpose.
Although this project is set out to be a music video, it is still a story and a good one at that. There are some major visual effects planned for the project, so it will be especially difficult to make with little funds. We will need money for equipment, locations, props, wardrobe, food, and post-production.
Oh Baby is a comedy about a man who is so terrified to speak to a woman that every time he tries to approach her, he causes a major disaster. But he just keeps trying, and digging his own grave, deeper and deeper.
For this film, we need money for equipment, locations, props, wardrobe, food, and post-production.
We are a group of young film students who have come together with the goal of making three narrative films. The team has a wide range of different talents and consists of students who are focusing in different fields such as Producing, Directing, Writing, Cinematography, Editing, and Sound.
We switch directing roles between each film so that everyone gets a chance to create and share their vision. We have pitched and shared ideas in order to come up with our three projects and this one big goal.
Thank you for your generous support. We can't do any of this without you!
