About this project

About Empty Hollow Echo

Empty Hollow Echo is my second feature film. Its been a labor of love over the last year and a half, and I'm almost finished. The big snag is our sound design, which is rather extensive and really needs someone working on it for at least a week straight.

The film asks the question, what the city would look like if only one person was in it. It takes place in a single evening as the character wanders the streets noticing all he ignored because of the hustle and bustle of the city. It's an apocalyptic film with no apocalypse, a dystopic vision of man's physical imprint on space, an architecture film as seen from a night on earth, where our character aches for attention and longs to be alone. 

About our crew

A number of highly talented artists have already lent their abilities to the project either for free or for marginal cost including Sean Ryan, Ben Niles, Ben Kasulke, Daniel White, Rylan Morris, Sarah Crowe and Jens Larsen.

What we need

We need to raise $5000 in order to finish this project. The sound design is critical to the project as we need to create an empty city sound scape. We don't want to rely on music and will use sounds to generate the feeling of the characters isolation in the grandeur of the city. Our focus is on isolating those sounds that populate city life that get drowned out in unison. We will pull them out of the background and focus the viewers attention on what humans will leave behind them. This is the final step as we  prepare the film for festivals, and generally kick it out into the world.

Can We Raise More Than Our Goal?

YES, we can.  There is no limit to the amount of funds we can raise and additional funds raised will be put to good use.  In today's new distribution environment for independent films, filmmakers can take an active role in distributing their films, which is incredibly empowering.  Additional funds raised will ensure that the film reaches audiences everywhere.
