YELLOW is now in post-production! We completed principle photography in December 2012 and have been furiously editing in the interim.

Now we need your help to get this film through post-production and out to audiences!

Our two trailers:

Your generous contributions will be utilized in the following 3 ways:

1-Film score (we have a composer and mixer generously donating their time and talent, but we need to rent studio time and hire additional musicians)

2-Chicago premiere screening for the general public in April!

3-Costs associated with film festival submissions (each festival charges between $50 and $350 for a feature film submission!)

Synopsis:

Arianna is a young woman that moves to the city to escape a traumatic family life in the suburbs. She works as a cosmetologist and is showing early signs of formaldehyde poisoning. New to the city and lonely, she reaches out to a female sex line operator. They agree to meet and soon begin a volatile relationship. An altercation at work results in Arianna losing her job. Then, people in her life begin to turn up dead. With Arianna's health, career, and new relationship all disintegrating before her eyes, how much longer can she, and those around her, survive?

Risks and challenges

One of the risks associated with the film festival circuit is that it is a lot like applying for college. It is important to spread the net wide to catch as many fish as possible. (God l love mixing metaphors!) We have our reach schools (Cannes, Slamdance) and we have our local safety schools. As each festival charges a submission fee just to consider the project, the process can get quite expensive. The more money that we raise, the more festival submissions we can make, and the better chance that YELLOW will play at a venue near you!
