In the future mountains have been ground down as an alternative energy source. Our film follows Caulder as he seeks Muskrat Pass, the last of the mammoth rock formations, to scatter his Grandmother’s ashes. It is a quest to the past, in search of traditional values and trusting one’s self, in order to find a more meaningful way of life.
Along the way he encounters subterranean beasts, stray mining robots, unreliable technology, and a harsh and unforgiving landscape.
We will be using practical effects and an immersive sound and production design to create this world.
Our $5500 Goal and Why We Need Your Help
One of the most important elements involved with making a science fiction or a science fantasy film is building a world in which the audience can suspend all belief. We are trying to not only make a science fiction world, but to make one that accurately reflects the direction of our own society. We will be designing and conceptualizing props, costumes, and sets that anticipate future trends while building a visually appealing aesthetic. This all costs money, and though we have access to a large amount of filmmaking resources, we still need to raise these funds to do justice to the story and creation of this project.
We also have over 30 volunteers -- all of whom have training and countless hours in filmmaking experience. We appreciate their help and would like to be able to provide proper catering for the three, 12 hour, days they will be volunteering.
