The Film

The Mansion is a suspense-thriller in the Post-Apocalyptic Genre. Set in the rural South, just outside of Atlanta, Georgia, the film follows a family struggling to survive in the wake of a great catastrophic event. The family is comprised of a mother, father, a daughter, an older neighbor and an injured young man they've taken in, whose intentions become more uncertain as the story progresses. 

The Production 

Currently in pre-production, our shoot schedule is prepped for principal photography on October 17th. Our crew draws from a rich well of experience. Director Andrew Robertson currently works for Wieden+Kennedy NY, as a Director/Editor for clients including ESPN, Nike and Target, amongst others. Our collaborators, Producer Irene Yibirin of Fabrika Productions, recently worked on the Academy Award nominated documentary Gasland; Producer Lilly Kanso has extensive experience in art direction and production; and 1st AD Andrew Richards has filmed over a dozen shorts and worked as First AD on three feature films. We have an amazing script and have scouted and secured our locations all over the northern metropolitan area of Atlanta, GA. The final piece of the puzzle is casting our actors.


Where the money will go...


It is absolutely essential that we have the best actors to truly bring the story to life. And good actors cost money. Your contribution will go 100% toward crafting a crackerjack dream team of the best actors the SAG indie-rate will buy. There are many routes we could take in building a great cast. Right now we are working with a few Casting Directors to project our net as widely as possible to find the best talent out there. There are five principal roles to cast. And we’ll need to pay their salaries, provide transportation, housing and meals. We can use all the help we can get.

What is Kickstarter?  

Kickstarter is a platform for fundraising projects and gaining community support. It’s an all or nothing concept in which we have 35 days to raise our budget or we do not receive any funds.
