About this project

The Movie! 

Leroy is a rambunctious and imaginative boy who is dealing with the fears, fantasies and trials of childhood. He spends most of his time drawing monsters, creatures and robots. When his parents leave town on business and his aunt Bethany shows up to babysit, strange things start happening. Parents in the neighborhood mysteriously begin disappearing one by one. Leroy discovers ghosts in the forest - not just any ghosts -  the ghosts of the missing parents. When no one else believes him he recruits his best friend Joey and Becki (the new girl in town) to help him investigate. Their adventure takes a dark turn when they discover Leroy's aunt is directly connected to the disappearances... and their parents are the next to go! Soon they are contending with new enemies as the magic of the dark forest brings Leroy's drawings to life in attempt to stop him from rescuing his parents!

This is a fantasy adventure with mystery, suspense, thrills all centered around real heart and emotions. Most importantly, this is an epic adventure that Leroy and his friends will never forget!

Plan of Action! 

This is a fast paced 30 minute short that feels very much like a feature! Think 30-min TV episode. The plan is to have this film in heavy rotation through the film festival circuit in hopes of feature film possibilities. 

Half of the production budget will be coming from personal funds and loans and we are reaching out to everyone through kickstarter in hopes of raising the rest.

We will be shooting principle photography in Salem OR and Los Angeles CA over the course 2 weeks in August. Post production will follow immediately in hopes of releasing the film by the holidays. 

Visual Effects! 

Although this is a low budget film, it doesn't have to look like one! We have a skilled team of visual effects artists eager and ready to bring Leroy's unique and fantastical universe to life! We are incorporating elements of CGI animation, stop motion, practical effects and puppetry to create this epic adventure!

We invite you to be a part of the adventure and join us on this creative endeavor!
