About this project

POSSUM is a short film:

Written/directed by Dan Perry.
Produced by Steve Loff and Tony Cohen.
Starring: Robert Lyons, Yang Miller, Brandi Satterfield,
and Peter Zerneck.
Loved by you guys (we hope).

What It's About:

POSSUM is a dark comedy about a Southern used car dealer whose criminal side catches up with him when a routine operation goes awry. There's drugs, guns, bikinis, martinis, cars, and more guns.

It's In The Can!!! Now You Can Help Us Finish It!

We assembled a talented cast and crew who traveled with us from New York City to Marlboro, New Jersey for an action packed weekend of smooth and carefully planned filmmaking. The story takes place in Tennessee, but we shot it in Jersey because, what's the difference?

What We're Going To Do With It:

Once the short is completed, it will be submitted to film festivals and circulate the globe to gain us financing for the feature length script, which is being developed by a brilliant writer friend of ours.

What We Need The Money For:

The entire kickstarter budget, along with available credit from the filmmaker's credit cards, will go towards all production and post production costs:

-Paying for the rented equipment like the fancy RED ONE camera.
-Professional Director of Photography to use said camera.
-Bright lights and manly grips.
-Professional sound crew.
-Professional Makeup Artist.
-Professional Special Effects Artists (as a safe alternative to blowing up trailers and shooting real guns).
-Post Production gurus who can bring all these things together.
-Props, mustaches, used cars, and candy bars.
-Transportation and food for our actors who graciously worked for free!
-And last but not least, film festival entry fees!
