About

THE STORY:

A great movie starts with a great story. LEFT WITH YOU is a short science

fiction film that’s like the best of short stories: a charged situation, vivid and unique characters, intrigue and danger, and a surprising twist at the end. This is the story of two men who are the only survivors of the crash of a starship in an icy lake on a frozen wasteland of a planet. The younger man, a mechanic, drags the older man, a doctor who has been injured in the crash, to the shelter of a cave, where he does his best to attend to the doctor’s wounds while the two of them try to decide what to do about the Emergency Distress Beacon that won’t function. As they struggle to survive and to find a way home, the bond between them grows, and each man is found to have his own secret. The story ends with a resolution both heartbreaking and haunting.

THE FILM AND ITS MAKERS:

Timothy Schneider, the writer and director, along with a skilled and talented cast and crew, are working to bring this story to life onscreen with the highest possible quality. Minimal use of CGI suits this intense and intimate story; use of miniatures, high-quality makeup effects, and location shooting in Oregon’s snowy mountains will create a highly realistic vision of the future.  Timothy Schneider has made numerous films as writer, director, and actor, and has most recently worked as first or second A.D. on several independent films in Portland and in Los Angeles.

Alexander Fraser plays Ben Turner, the younger man, and Bruce Lundy plays the doctor, Allan Newsom. Fraser is a busy film actor whose work takes him all over the west coast. Lundy is a stage and film actor who has worked steadily on stages in the San Francisco area and Eugene, and in indie films, commercials and industrials. Both actors have worked with Schneider before, and the script was written with them in mind.

All concept art was made by the visionary and talented artist Erika Milo.  She has been continuously drawing and painting images from the original script including those seen in the background of the promotional video.  Her depth in thought and familiarity with the sci fi genre made her the ideal artist to work on this project.

WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP FUNDING THE FILM:

LEFT WITH YOU has a modest budget of $10,000.  We must pay for filming permits, crew, transportation and lodging, craft services, costume design and construction, makeup artist, and other essential elements. We plan a four or five day shoot during late fall of 2011, shooting exteriors and cave scenes in natural Oregon settings. The completed film will be submitted to top film festivals such as Sundance, Toronto, and Vancouver.
