What is The Mighty Slice?

The Mighty Slice is a comedic short film being produced by local Baltimore filmmakers and Stevenson University students. It will be a Thesis film as well as being submitted to contests and festivals upon it's completion.

The story was inspired by years working in a pizza shop, as well as a real-life story of a pizza man who took out a robber armed only with a pizza peel!

What is it about?

Our movie follows the story of Caesar: an awkward pizza delivery man struggling to survive the routine in a rough neighborhood. He and his co-workers are under the constant threat of neighborhood thugs and hoodlums. When Caesar saves their pizza shop from an armed robbery it ignites the far-fetched idea of becoming a masked crime fighter: "The Slice". With some creativity, naivety and a whole lot of courage: Caesar slowly becomes a mildly successful vigilante. Unfortunately for Caesar his victories gain the attention of a more serious, dangerous criminal.

Where will my money go?

Our Budget will go toward making hand made-costumes, obtaining props, renting specialty equipment, location fees, covering insurance, and of course feeding our talented cast and crew on set.

Risks and challenges

As independent filmmakers we know there are always obstacles and challenges to overcome when making a movie, and we're ready to take on whatever gets thrown at us.
Our first line of attack was to procure the most passionate, hard-working crew members we know. Each person on this project is ready to bring their very best work to make the film a reality.
The most inevitable factor in our production is weather, we have planned plenty of alternate shoot dates for exterior scenes and discussed precautions to take on set to counter natures unpredictable behavior.
Being a super-hero film there will also be plenty of action and fighting! Safety is a top priority, we have invited crew members that have a background in martial arts and stage combat to choreograph and ensure the safety of our cast members.
Finally we are focused on securing a pizzeria for the film. It is a vital location for the story and it's not always easy to find business owners who are willing to collaborate, especially without the right funds! But were are confident that with your help and our enthusiasm, we'll find a great home for The Slice.
