About

Filming is set to begin on or about March 1,2014 on '22AFTER', a feature- length, docu-drama with 'survivors' of a civilization-ending event set in the present time.

The anonymous film-maker interviews 21 survivors from a city of 100,000 on their memories of what happened in the weeks and months after the grid goes down. They describe the challenges they have faced to stay alive in a rapidly deteriorating environment, and the growing realization their days are numbered.  

A great script, quality acting, and first rate photography can only take us so far. We need funding for special effects (to accurately portray the large number of dead bodies (starvation, suicides, murder, accidents) post production work, and aggressive marketing. 

Risks and challenges

While practically any abandoned building or structure will work as a place human survivors would seek shelter we need those that are removed from any traffic noise, and which the owner will allow us the use of for a movie on this topic. We anticipate many rejections but will just keep asking until we find enough to fulfill our needs.

Special effects won't be particularly difficult as long as they accurately portray relatively large numbers of dead bodies, and survivors who are unkempt starving. We have a seasoned Special Effects pro on board but we need to film most of the scenes before the surrounding countryside begins to 'green up' in the Spring. If that happens we'll have to look for more barren locations.

We might run into difficulty getting positive press (or any press for that matter) as this is not a 'feel good' subject, but we won't know until we make the movie and begin to market it. Still if we do everything right our advisers say this movie has huge potential as an instant cult classic because of the subject matter and the fact that mainstream media is not talking about it.
