About this project

Hi everyone! My name is Cyrus Moshrefi - writer and director of The Genius.

Hopefully you have seen both videos posted on this site by now. If not - make sure that you do!

THE STORY

Oliver Peach has committed himself to learn something new every single day for the past 432 days. He has learned how to blow a bubble, he has learned how to cook, he has mastered the violin, he has learned over 18 languages and more...

The story starts off on day 433. The mission for day 433: LEARN HOW TO WHISTLE.

With this piece I am exploring the difficulties of connection.
I have always been fascinated by how much effort it takes for people to truly connect with one another. To let go and forget about TIME = COMFORT.
What needs to happen before we let ourselves go, forget our ego, and make a simple and honest connection with someone?

THE GOAL

Our goal is to start filming October of 2012. We already have a director of photography, production assistant, key grip, wardrobe designer, and assistant director.

After the movie is finished we will be sending it off to as many film festivals as we can!

So why do we need the money?

All the money raised will be used directly for production and post-production. Meaning that we will use the money for camera equipment, lighting, wardrobe, props, set pieces, editing, promoting, and festival fees. Everyone that is committed to this project is doing it because they love making good films. They believe in the script and hopefully in me - to create a film that moves people to the point where they themselves can ask questions.

Risks and challenges

The big challenge that faces me as a director for this project is making sure the story is told in a truthful and interesting way that will change the way people think.

This of course is a HUGE challenge but I feel that I have found a group of talented people that will help guide the way to achieving the impossible.
