About

When their transport crashes on a desolate planet, a detached teenager must save her siblings from the deranged paternal ambitions of a holographic father. Through her struggles, she finds a connection with her step family and a renewed faith in God.

Can a movie made in my garage compete with the big Hollywood studios? HoloDad is a family film project I am doing with my kids, plus the help of some amazing crew members!

 

A feature length Science Fiction Kids film, HoloDad is aiming for state of the art visual FX and compelling storytelling on a shoestring budget.

Principal photography is wrapped, other than a few pickups, and a rough edit has already begun. But we need your help to take this thing over the finish line! With over 400 visual effects shots left to be completed, your Kickstarter contributions will allow us to speed up the production process by outsourcing key VFX shots to freelance animators.

Then we can finish the edit, secure a distribution deal, and share Holodad with the world! Please consider becoming a Holodad team member, and help us bring this movie to life!

We're so excited to finish this movie but we need your help to do it right!  Please BACK our project, SHARE this page, LIKE the Holodad Movie Facebook page, FOLLOW @Holodad_movie on Twitter, BLOG about us, tell your friends and family about us over the holidays, and...Thank You.

Risks and challenges

The challenge has always been completing the visual effects shots, and if we raise the full amount of our funding goal, we are confident we can finish the movie. We are currently exploring using a mix of domestic and international 3D talent as a cost-effective solution for the high quality of visual effects in demand by today's audiences.

We have already spoken with distributors and sales agents at AFM and other venues, and there is always strong interest in quality Sci-Fi material, so getting that often elusive "distribution deal" should not be a problem.
