About this project

Beyond it is another dimension

We are producing a pilot for a Twilight Zone-like series. You pick which of our story ideas we will make. Here they are - 

Rocket 88

• Sixty years after sending a “pen-pal balloon” into the sky, an elderly woman gets an extra terrestrial response.

Captain Clark

• A child’s daydream of becoming a pirate takes a dark turn when his home is invaded by the demonic buccaneers from his fantasies. 

Ernie Abbot and the Flesh Thieving Ghoul

• A teenage boy suspects his stepfather is a Boo Hag that sneaks into people’s bedrooms and steals their skin while they sleep.

Redline

• A girl wakes up on a bus after an attempted suicide. She soon learns what connects her to the other, bewildered passengers... They all want to die.

Moment of Death

• A neighborhood tries to understand why the sun has frozen at the top of the sky.

Granny

• A deceased woman returns to earth to visit the grandson who dearly misses her. The bizarre catch is that her vessel is the body of his teenage girlfriend.

Snapshot

• A young girl is taken in by a mysterious photographer with a strange collection of images which hold a horrible and ancient secret.

We plan to use your contribution to give adequate pay to the many individuals required to help us produce this project.

Who we are 

Hello Interneter, we are four boys intensely educated in the art and science of film-making (particularly the high-concept variety), and however much time we have left on this planet, we are going to tell stories.

What we have

We have a camera, experience, and a hand full of ideas we are excited about, but only one can be produced as the pilot to be pitched to networks.
