About the Film

When Michael returns home after mysteriously disappearing a year ago, Logan and Hayley struggle to come to terms with a confession he makes to them that night.  They wonder where he has been, and the answer takes them somewhere they never thought they would go.

Why do we need your help?

Making a quality film of any length is an expensive endeavor. It requires collaboration between many different departments, each with their own set of expenses.

The money we raise will help us buy the supplies necessary for our production designers to build and dress the set, as well as pay for the use of the locations themselves. We will be renting our equipment from a rental studio, and the cost of all of the lights and lenses and stands can really add up. Our incredible crew of course needs to be fed, and travel and housing costs for the cast must be paid for.

Every bit of the money we raise will affect the outcome of the film. If we surpass our goal, we will have the means to add some truly mind blowing visuals!

Thank you again for your interest and your support. If you can't help by donating, you can help us by spreading the word about our film! We appreciate it and can't wait to show you our final product. 

Risks and challenges

Many things can go wrong on set, and often do. Weather is unpredictable and often disrupts sets, equipment can malfunction, and transportation issues among other things can often come up and force us to think on our feet.

Our crew is highly experienced and is prepared for anything that may come our way. We are fully capable of finding creative ways to get this film made, and deliver the best possible product.

Thank you again for your support!
