We are making a feature length very-low-budget motion picture this summer during june and july. It is an elvis-style musical set in ancient mythological greece. There are visually stunning special effects featuring giants, monsters, mermaids, a ship, and legendary beasts. Action, romance, adventure, music, tragedy, comedy, all in one package.
We have included on this page a teaser which we shot in one weekend. it cost about 200 dollars including gasoline and food. Most of the money went to bronze colored paint.
The teaser is an example of what we are capable of in a rush and with very little money. just think of what we can accomplish with more time and a little more dough! We have the time, but the money is harder to come by, and that's where we need a little help.
In June we plan to begin principal photography in locations around the santa cruz coast.
We have a star (Johnny Diamonds) , cast, crew, script, camera, shot list, costumes, props, puppets, lights, locations, experience , and ambition.
We have a total budget of $1,300,about half of which we have been able to raise on our own, but there are still a few things we would like to buy/build that cost a bit.
Things we plan to buy are:
-a large green screen
-lumber for our sets (a ship, some temple interiors, a palace interior)
-some more costuming supplies (fabric, mostly, maybe some more wide belts)
-more puppetry and miniature model supplies (latex, silicone, plaster, feathers,wood, tiny trees, etc, a decent looking miniature boat)
If we surpass our goal, we could also buy:
-materials for more costumes and sets and props.
-a new computer to edit with
-a camera (we are borrowing one)
-food for our actors and crewmembers (let them eat cake)
- (40 days)
