WHAT WE'RE DOING: We're filming key segments from the script to showcase my vision for the film and impress the motion picture companies into green-lighting the script for a full feature-length production.
The screenplay was received, by a major script reviewing agency in Los Angeles, as the "highest rated script" to come through their office. The result of which has given me all the passion and drive I needed to get this project underway. We've already spent several months filming a considerable amount of footage and are now seeking funds to complete what has already begun.

Lighting equipment; generator for portable power source, set of 6 Arri lights, stands and gels. Smoke machine, breakaway glass, lumber, flooring, vintage props, wallpaper.
