Help us reach ABSOLUTION
A feature horror film about religion and mob-mentality written and directed by Nathan Oliver (Lady Psycho Killer)
This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Sun, December 23 2018 10:59 PM UTC +00:00.
ABSOLUTION is about a man searching for redemption but finding judgement instead.
Luther has messed up. Bad. At his most desperate hour, he finds a neon sign over the door of a church a hopeful symbol.
He goes to confess his sins to Father Quint, who hears Luther out just long enough to decide that he is the man God has promised to bring his flock of followers into the light.
Father Quint bludgeons Luther unconscious, drags him to the basement, then prepares his congregation to lead him to the light.
In the final act, Luther escapes his torturous imprisonment only to find Father Quint and his followers ready to exact the Lord's vengeance upon him. However, this may be exactly what Luther needs.
We NEED your help!
We have all of the material items to make this motion picture a reality. The writer/director/producer, Nathan Oliver, owns and operates NOProductions, a full-service production company. Not only do we have access to high end equipment but also all of the people Nathan has met through his 10+ years making films.
Rehearsals and base camp will be at the NOProductions office at SoPoCo.Works in South Portland, Maine. The film will be shot on RED and Black Magic cameras owned by NOProductions. Post will be handled in 4k on NOProductions post-production equipment. All of that is already in place.
Our goal is to raise money to pay the folks who help us make the movie and we need to purchase Production/E&O insurance. We need to feed everyone good food. We need to make sure that everyone that helps Luther reach Absolution doesn't have to pay out-of-pocket for the experience.
This feature film will be WATCHED
Nathan's previous film, "Lady Psycho Killer", travelled all over North America on the festival circuit. It premiered at Fantasia International Film Festival and ended its festival run at the San Francisco Indie Fest the following year. After that, it was picked up for distribution by Parade Deck Films and sales by WowNowEntertainment. It is currently available on Showtime nation-wide and was even the mystery bonus blu-ray in the famed HorrorPack subscription service.
These are the first places we will be hitting up to have Absolution brought to a world-wide audience. And that audience starts with you!
You will be the first to see
All of the giving tiers here on Kickstarter lead you down the path to seeing Absolution. Most of them, however, will deliver! Before the movie is screened anywhere, YOU will be the first to watch the film as it is prepared for its own festival run.
You can even share your enthusiasm of holy ABSOLUTION by donating at the ABSOLUTION-ize level. Pledge the cash, send us a pic, and we will craft a one-of-a-kind image with your face as the face of ABSOLUTION which you can use for whatever you like!

Nathan has many tricks up his sleeve
If you donate money to our film, you will receive consistent and crazy updates as we add people (cast and crew) as well as shout-outs to your friends in our own unique way as we roll into production of the film all the way to the premiere!
But, it doesn't end there! If you donate to ABSOLUTION, you will also be updated as the film shoots, receive personal messages (if you wish) from the set, and truly be part of our small but awesome team.
Also, we are working on bringing some heavy-hitters to the set as well, behind AND in front of the camera. Donate today and be the first to see who joins the congregation and welcome them to the flock.
Risks and challenges
Our biggest risk is making sure we stick to the tight 9 day production schedule for the film. NOProductions is committing to ANY overages the production encounters, budgetary and time-wise.
Our second biggest challenge is delivering a feature film of high-quality at the $25,000 level. This is why we are matching some of the funds contributed to this campaign and donating ALL of NOProductions' resources to the effort. We are also hunting for more equity partners during the 2018 American Film Market while this campaign is live.
We have many concerns, as all film projects do, from ability to gain meaningful press, securing the best price for insurance, having hot food, not having cold actors, and not enough blood. The benefits we have over many others is that Nathan has seen it all and is masterful at coming up with creative solutions as well as the full support of NOProductions.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
