Born into a war of deceit, Alex Kira searches for revenge and a way to end the conflict. But how much control does he really have?
Alex Kira was born into a world at war.
Kira was once the most elite Special Forces soldier during World War III. Now, he's America's most wanted criminal and he's out for revenge. Stalked by remnants of his past, Kira forms an unlikely alliance with two orphaned teenagers; Jason and Ashley Hale. As enemy forces invade America's shores the trio find themselves trapped between opposing armies, all hungry for Kira's blood.
The farther Kira falls into his hunt for vengeance, the more dangerous he becomes. Jason and Ashley only want to stop the fighting. Kira wants to bury it all in blood. What secrets is Kira hiding, and how much control does he really have?
Downfall is our first feature film production and as such we want to give it the level of quality it deserves. Downfall is a brainchild we've been working on for several years, and it's only just now that we feel we've reached a point in our lives where we can make that idea into a reality.
The production will be centered in Central New York, mainly in and around the city of Syracuse. Filming will commence in June 2012 and will run until September 2012. We already have a main cast and crew locked in, as well as a large portion of the costumes, props, and general filming equipment. The donations we receive will be put towards securing locations, purchasing craft services for the cast and crew, funding any last minute costume and equipment needs, and ensuring proper post production.
Downfall is a major part of our lives at this point, and any and all donations will be greatly appreciated and cherished. Every single dollar means we are that much closer to making our dream into a real, physical film. So please, don't be shy and spread the word!
