Night Shift is the story of Barry, a night worker at the local 24-hour convenience store. When an unusually small Flying Saucer decides to pay the shop a visit, Barry has to take on the role of protecting the aisles while making sure the customers don't grow wise of the store's extraterrestrial shopper.

This film's goal is to reimagine 1980s sci-fi and create a story that brings its fantastic energy into the 2010s. This film takes great influence from such films as E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and the Back to the Future Trilogy. As kids we loved the fantastical wonder these films gave us and we hope to tell a story that inspires a similar sensation in its viewers.

“Thank you so much for taking the time to view our Kickstarter. This idea came out of a screening of Oblivion in 2013 and has stayed and evolved with me over the past 3 and a half years. I am so excited to take this leap and finally see this project come to fruition. Although we as the crew are excited to start filming, the truth is that we can’t do this alone. We really need some help with securing the locations, costumes, lenses, and other film equipment that will make this film as good as it can be. Any donation you can give would really be of huge assistance and I would be infinitely in your debt. Not only are you making a financial donation to the production, but you are helping make my dream a reality.” -Noah Campagna

Risks and challenges

One of the exciting challenges in this project is recreating the 1980's sci-fi aesthetic. This task will mostly fall onto the shoulder of the Art Department, who will be responsible for finding and crafting appropriate period props and costumes for the characters to wear and interact with. The task will also be supported by the Director of Photography who will be choosing the appropriate lenses and utilizing 1980's filming techniques. Working together, this crew hopes to create a film that looks and feels true to the films that it has found inspiration from.
