About

THE STORY

Ryan Black’s fear becomes reality when he accidentally discovers his unique ability to travel across parallel dimensional planes. An ability viewed by many as taboo and dangerous.

Ryan spends the early years of his life running from his ability out of fear in something he doesn't quite understand.  Hearing strange sounds from the other side of closed doors, he believes that he is haunted.  Once he builds the courage to finally step through the door, he discovers that it's not a connection to the other side, but a gateway into parallel dimensions.

People with this ability are hunted down and captured or eliminated by an opposing force of operatives, led by the autocratic Chancellor who seeks to maintain what he considers a dimensional balance. The Chancellor and his men pursue Ryan as they view him and others like him as a potential threat to mankind. Ryan must quickly master his new found abilities and uncover the truth behind the Chancellor’s real objective before they find him first.

Many of the people are recurring through the story.  For instance, the character Kara (Arlynn Knauff) appears in each crossing but as a different character.  Each persona varies by environmental factors and/or life events.  So Kara, who was brought up in a war torn country fighting to survive, is a lot different than Kaalyn who grew up in a more peaceful setting. 

A major part of Planewalker deals with parallel dimensions and the 'many interacting worlds' theory.  The dimensions in this story will be more closer to our own than a fantasy alternate reality.  So you won't see dinosaur robots ruling the galaxy or apes ruling man.  I wanted to focus on the concept of dimensions interacting with one another, directly and indirectly.

FUNDING

We have the equipment and access to the locations.  We are looking for additional funding that will go toward insurance, wardrobe, makeup department, travel and lodging expenses and catering.  There are several hidden costs that go into producing a film.  That's where you come in.

The $2,000 goal is the very minimum amount we will need to make this film.  It's a starting point. If we exceed that goal, more options will become available to us. Such as additional props and wardrobe, additional support equipment (lights, camera support, audio equipment) and a happier cast and crew!  This will make for an all around better film and better experience for those involved and our audience.

OUR GOAL

We expect to have Planewalker wrapped by mid-July.  My goal is to have this film complete and ready for viewing by the end of the year.  So don't expect this to be dragged out into eternity.  

For all of us, exposure is the number one goal.  The best way to do that for an independent film is still film festivals.  We will be submitting this to several festivals across the country to achieve maximum exposure.  We are all very confident in this story and we would love for you to be a part of it!

Risks and challenges

It's always a challenge to make a film independently. The script is complete, the cast and crew are already assembled and locations are set. The biggest challenge right now is the schedule. We are shooting principal photography over the course of two weeks. Because we will be using the funds earned by this campaign (wardrobe, insurance, and meals) it is crucial that the project is completed within those ten days.

This is my second time using Kickstarter to help fund a feature film and I've learned a lot. $2,000 is the bare minimum we need to move forward. If we reach our goal, we should be able to complete Planewalker by June of next year!

Thank you!
