Hero (A short film)

$6,281

Hero is an original short screenplay written by a filmmaker from Tennessee.

The project will be shot in middle Tennessee for a week in March, and then another week in June.

The Story:

The story of Hero centers around a girl named Amelia and her father (Rhett) who is trying to raise her and her brother (Derrin) without his wife, who tragically died in a car accident. When Amelia and Derrin are faced with tough moments in life, it's their father's love for them that stands fast.

This is the concept trailer we filmed for the project:

What we need:

We need $6,000 to make this project happen. These funds will be used for costumes, locations, equipment, props, food and lodging for the amazing cast & crew, and the original soundtrack that will be composed by Connor Savoca. All funds raised beyond $6,000 will be used to pay for the cast & crew's travel costs.

Who we are:

We are a group of filmmakers called CITC Productions based out of middle Tennessee. We began filmmaking back in the summer of 2015 and made short films which we put out on our youtube channel: 
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUU1kRivzcF8kZMT6hyJqUQ?
Our goal as a team is to share stories with the world that people can enjoy and be inspired by.

How to be involved:

1. Give to the Kickstarter. Even just $1 will help move us closer to our goal!

2. Share this campaign to social media and tell as many people as you can about it.

3. Pray for us. Making a film is a huge undertaking and involves many people coming and working together. We really need God's help to be able to bring together all the elements to make this project happen.

Risks and challenges

Making a film is a very fun yet huge challenge that takes many people coming together and working with each other.

One of the biggest problems we face is casting the right talent for each role. A fair amount of time passes during the film and we need multiple people to play each of the main characters.

Another challenge we face is finding the right locations for each scene in the film. Especially ones that will keep us within our budget. Making connections with the right people is key to this and we've been blessed to be able to do just that.

We've seen the Lord work in many ways on this project and many projects before this one and we believe he will give us the strength and wisdom to overcome all challenges we face.
