About this project
Mouthbreather is a comedic short written and to be directed by Emily C. Chang.
Florance is a reclusive and eccentric collector who lives vicariously through her pulp romance novels. When she receives an unexpected prank call, Florance finds herself unhinged by the sudden possibility of human connection. Mouthbreather is a humorous look at how even the most socially awkward person can express pent-up desires in the most unexpected and peculiar of ways.
We plan to make Mouthbreather look visually arresting with high production values and gorgeous cinematography on a shoestring budget. The entire cast and crew work professionally in the entertainment industry and we can make a little bit go a long way. We plan to shoot on the RED camera and create a storybook atmosphere with a vibrant visual style reminiscent of Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Wes Anderson.
Please note that while our financial goal on Kickstarter is set low, our actual production budget is $5000 plus an additional $1500 for our post-production and festival submissions. With your help, we hope to not only surpass our Kickstarter goal but successfully accumulate enough funding for our entire shoot.
Thank you for your interest and support!
