SANDS OF IKKERA

A tale of adventure in a land struggling to recover from an ancient cataclysm. Our story follows the daughter of an ailing leader as she sets out to find a cure with the assistance of a daring stranger and his surly robot companion. Along the way they will face dangerous creatures, brutal marauders and the sands of the unforgiving desert.   

WHY MAKE THIS FILM?

This film encompasses our personal love for adventure, fantasy and science fiction. Inspired by some of our favorite films, this world began to grow; becoming populated, and developing a rich history. It began to burst with stories to tell. So, here we are, setting out to tell one. We are shooting for a 30-40 minute film.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING NOW?   

While we're waiting on our fundraising our whole team is hard at work creating props, weapons, and costumes. As well as starting construction on the speeder and robot with materials we already have. We will be posting regular updates showing exactly how everything is progressing.

WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?    

The funds we raise will be used to purchase construction materials for our full sized hover speeder and set pieces. Electronics for our robot character, a higher quality camera, lighting equipment, along with things like food and gas during our production weeks. 

 WHAT ARE YOUR STRETCH GOALS?

If we reach our stretch goal of $15,000 we will be able to afford more film festival entries, and purchase even better equipment. If we reach $20,000 we will organize a local premiere of the film along with more festival entries across the US.

Thank you for supporting our dream to bring this world and its characters to life.

Risks and challenges

We are still searching for a local location for a few scenes where we need extras and would like to make it more convenient for them to be on set. But if we cannot find something local we will simply film everything at our main location only 3 hours away.
The only other issues we anticipate would be in post production. We currently have two people for post work and would love to have more to speed the production along. But we have allowed ourselves an ample timeline, so if we only have our original two then it will not set us back. More help will just speed it along and bump up our release date to that much sooner.
We have a plan B, C and D for every step of the process, as we intend on making this film regardless of the possible challenges we may and will definitely face along the way.
It is the nature of film making, there will always be issues, but part of the creativity is overcoming those obstacles.
