About this project
Act of Man (AOM) is an independent post apocalyptic feature length film that is currently being produced. Proudly based in and around the ruins of Pittsburgh, the rich story telling world of AOM offers a diverse array of character driven struggle and action packed adventures. AOM is the first part of a planned trilogy that seeks to tell the stories of those who survived.
About the Story
The story of Act of Man revolves around a bounty hunter named Erika. Personal tragedy has lead Erika to live a toxic lifestyle of alcoholism and needless risk taking. However it seems to work for her partners, who seek out criminals and those deemed "undesirable" by the City Administration of New Pittsburgh. On a mission to rescue a girl from a cult, Erika is betrayed by her partner and left for dead. Erika will be forced to face her inner demons as she treks across the wasteland to exact revenge.
However the wasteland is home to many dangers. Not only did millions die when the world ending event happened, it turned many into zombie like "crazies". There are also the "ghouls", the "freaks", and numerous gangs. For her to survive the wasteland, she will need to make a friend or two.
About the Production
Act of Man is currently in pre-production. We are launching this Kickstarter campaign to give us the money needed to carry out our production. For the past six months we have been doing things such as locking down locations, securing our principal actor, building a great crew, and polishing our script. This project is ready and sitting on a shelf. We just need you to make it happen!
The crew for AOM is based around three college graduates who have been working together on various productions for over three years. Each one of us eats, breathes, and sometimes even dreams video production. This project is vitally important to us and we all take great care to ensure we have a quality product. This project is our means for advancing ourselves in film... to break out and earn a name.
- Michael T. Snyder - Producer/Director
- Donnie Kenney - Director
- Tim Roberts - Director of Photography
What do we need funding for?
Its important to us to make everyone a part of the production. We are gearing our Kickstarter rewards around that concept. At different levels, people can be apart of our production in different ways. For instance we will be offering streaming production meetings for sponsors to be apart of. I should also mention that we will be having Kickstarter supporters only content when the film is released!
- Locations - Pittsburgh offers many awesome locations, but the owners usually want paid.
- Production Design - Can't have a post apocalyptic film without great costumes, props, and set designs.
- Talent - Actors usually want paid.
- Production Insurance - Locations usually want proof of insurance, and any thing that happens to cast or crew will be covered.
- Choreographer - This is an action adventure and we will need someone to coordinate the fight sequences.
- Stunts - Yes, we will be having stunts.
- and More! - It's vital to us to produce the best possible product for our audience. Whether its renting a grip truck or the right lens, we want to make sure we can!
We are excited to bring this project to you. It has been something we been working on since our first short set in the Act of Man world, back in 2009. The story has grown and matured over time and we are absolutely ready to bring this project to life. If you're local to Pittsburgh, then you know exactly the type of possibilities that exist for a post apocalyptic movie. Throw in some zombies, a great character driven story, and soon you have one kick ass movie. We look forward to bringing this to you guys.
Please take a moment and consider helping us making this a reality.
Wicked Redemption Studios is the name that we developed as a group identity, considering the three of us (me, the Director, and the Director of Photography) regularly work on the same projects. You can find out more by visiting wickedredemption.com.
