An alternate history of the human race that questions how society would respond to learning the Holy Bible was NOT written for us.
About Our Film
Mankind? is a short film that presents an alternate history of the origins of the human race. The film raises a provocative question....what would happen to mankind if we discovered that God, Heaven, and The Bible were all real...but we were NOT God's children, we could NOT get to Heaven, and the Bible was NOT written for us? Would the world band together to make the most of THIS life, knowing it was all we had, or would we descend into madness and anarchy knowing there was no punishment for the deeds we committed on this Earth? What do YOU think would happen? What would YOU do?
How Far Along Are We?
As of the launch of this Kickstarter campaign, we have a finished script, a production budget, and a shooting schedule. We have hired producer Chris Ranney, 2x Regional Emmy Award winning cinematographer James E. Blackburn, and have enlisted renowned comic book artist Andy Kuhn to create our alternate history Bible art. We have done preliminary location scouting as well. This short will be a SAG/AFTRA production ID# 457679
When Will You See The Film?
Upon successful conclusion of this Kickstarter campaign we'll move immediately to final location scouting, props, costumes, and casting. We are in the process of interviewing directors at this time. We don't anticipate needing any permits for our outdoor shots as we have secured a private location for them. Our estimated filming window is March/April 2018. Our production schedule calls for 3 days of filming. We plan to release our film in May or June of 2018.
What Happens After The Film Is Released?
We plan to seek entry into as many film festivals as possible to bring this story to the world.
