GREY NOISE is a senior thesis film written and directed by Ezra Arez Raez (Northwestern University '12). The film mixes elements of science fiction, family drama, and the theatre of the absurd to address the implications of transhumanism. Handmaking the props, special effects, and costumes was essential in telling the story, as were transportation, catering, and equipment rentals necessary to create the product. Your donation will help cover these costs plus publicity materials and festival submissions.
