What is Kickstarter?
"Kickstarter is a new way to fund creative projects.
We believe that:
- A good idea, communicated well, can spread fast and wide.
- A large group of people can be a tremendous source of money and encouragement.
Kickstarter is powered by a unique all-or-nothing funding method where projects must be fully-funded or no money changes hands."
So what is Sink?
Sink is the story of a man who wins the lottery and, after secluding himself in a hotel away from society, finds himself lost in the depths of his mind.
After being approached with the original concept by Alexander Vucasovich we developed it into a screenplay for a short film.
Who is Blurred Pictures?
Blurred Pictures is the directing duo of Christopher Dodge and Rosco Guerrero as well as the Blurred Creatives. The Creatives are talented, artistic people who have a wide range of roles from everything including Cinematography, Lighting, and Production Assistance to Sound Design, Photography, and Post-Production.
We are a Denver-based house.
Why a short film?
We want to make a short film because we feel that it is the next natural step to becoming feature filmmakers and we believe that we are now up to the challenge.
This particular story also lends itself to the short film medium because of its character driven temperament, atmosphere, and surreal quality.
As filmmakers we are particularly interested in exploring character and personal motives, which, in our opinion, is often neglected in this type of film. It is our intention to give the same consideration to a short film that we would a feature in order to produce a great experience for you, the audience.

Why we need your Help
Making a film is an incredibly difficult undertaking with many facets that deserve proper funding in order to create the best possible experience.
The necessary elements:
- THE CREW AND EQUIPMENT
In order to shoot this film the way we see it requires the use of some expensive equipment and highly skilled personnel. The camera we are shooting on is the RED EPIC, the same camera that The Social Network (2010), and the upcoming films The Hobbit (2012) and The Amazing Spiderman (2012) were shot on.
- THE TALENT, WARDROBE, AND MAKEUP
Just as the proper crew are necessary to create the images, the perfect cast in necessary to bring the story to life.
People have to eat!
Fortunately, we have been able to secure a great location, a skilled crew, and a talented cast, however, there are many unforeseen expenses that come up when making a film that will likely come out of our pockets, so, every dollar helps!
A lot of people are donating their talents and time to this project, so any additional money that comes in will be distributed to them, evenly.
Our goal is to raise $4,000 by April 18, 2012 so that we can bring our vision to fruition and give you the best and most memorable cinematic experience that we can.
We appreciate your interest in our project and for taking the time out of your day to learn more about us.
