Young award-winning director Luke Broyles is intensely working on a new major project. This film, Cold Snow, includes professional talent and has completed production and major steps of post-production.
THE FILM: First, what is the film about?
After becoming isolated in the middle of a harsh winter, a stubborn writer struggles to survive and overcome the burden of regret while being followed by a supernatural presence.
"Cold Snow is a story that follows a man as he experiences regret, fear, and his eminent approach to death. While intense and dark, the film conveys hope and will leave an inspiring lasting impression. Most importantly, it is a film that aspires to prompt the audience to think; think about their own lives and their own daily choices." - Luke Broyles
Synopsis of Cold Snow:
"From award-winning and acclaimed director Luke Broyles comes a suspenseful survival story with a supernatural element, Cold Snow.
Cold Snow follows an isolated writer in a dire situation. After being stuck in the middle of a vast snowy landscape and loosing contact with civilization, the writer (Ransom Pugh) must meet the harsh extremes of winter elements. In addition to the lack of food, he is stalked by a very powerful and mysterious presence whose ambitions seem grim. The man's work, safety, health, happiness, and even life are all threatened. While battling the natural and supernatural, he encounters emotional struggles due to many regrets newly discovered. Facing hunger, exhaustion, injuries, regrets, bitterly cold snow, and the supernatural being, he must survive to again see what truly matters to him... his daughter."
THE IMMEDIATE VISION: What should be expected in the near-future?
The film completed production in January, on schedule, with no major issues or debts. The cast and crew were all very pleased with the experience and of the film that has come out of it! The entire film has been edited and will have a final runtime of 90 minutes. With the entire movie filmed, only the fine-tuning and enhancement of the story is left. Sound editing, original music score, visual effects, color grading/correction, and titles are all that is left to complete! This campaign is directed toward these final elements so this film can be as professional and polished as possible. The film will greatly shine when these elements come together in the end.
The film will have a premiere and will be submitted to film festivals, nationally and internationally. We anticipate this film will do well in the film festival world due to its quality, talent involved, moving message, and creative ingenuity.
THE EXTENDED VISION: What should the lasting impact be?
With a unique film of this caliber, distribution discussions are under serious consideration. The music, sound, and visual effect quality will provide a major boost in this endeavor. Plans are being put in place for distribution; while a theatrical release is unlikely, national or even international distribution is a principal goal.
With film festivals and distribution in the works, the film will hopefully be seen by thousands of people, and potentially many more. The film's heart is not only to entertain, but to give the audiences messages that will move them to take action in their lives.

Risks and challenges
Now that the film is past production, it is very unlikely that unexpected costs or expenses would show up. All contracts (including payments) have been agreed upon and signed.
The future of the film is uncertain. Some goals are for showings in the film festival circuit and distribution. Distribution options are being considered, but nothing is decided on at this point. Weather the film goes on to film festivals, distribution, or both (most likely), we are excited for the opportunities and potential that is in the near future!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
