About

A couple of years ago I stumbled upon a full blown movie score titled "Symmetry: Themes For An Imaginary Film" on Soundcloud. It was created by musician Johnny Jewel from Chromatics. I heard about it on a movie blog that claimed it was originally created for Drive. In the end, it was not used. However one of Chromatics songs was featured. Whether this is all true or not I have no idea. I do know however that this soundtrack has inspired me enormously. 

Here is a link to the soundtrack: SYMMETRY

This past month I had the idea to create a short film based purely off of the soundtrack. I would pick out pieces of the score, lay them out in an editor, and then begin to brainstorm ideas for the film. If you watch the video I've made for Kickstarter you'll see some of the images that are inspiring the visuals. Movies like Escape From New York, Terminator, Blade Runner, Collateral, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Nightcrawler, and Drive, are all similar in the tone I want to create. I've received permission to use the soundtrack strictly in a not for profit situation. ALL of the money goes directly to location fees, wardrobe, props, and makeup. I am receiving $0 for this project, personally.

The soundtrack is very 80's inspired. Pounding synthesizers against retro cars, motorcycles, alleyways. I believe all of this comes together for the perfect storm of visual stimulation.

This is not a music video. It's a narrative story. I've already begun the process of laying down the music and conceiving shots/ideas. I'm SINCERELY hoping this project gets funded so I may share this film with the world. Much love.

Risks and challenges

If this project is successfully funded I will no doubt be able to release it for free in the fall. My goal is have it ready by October 31, 2015.
