About this project
We are raising development funding for the science fiction feature film Rogue Moon, based on the acclaimed 1960 novel of the same name. We want to create a low budget high concept sci fi film, inspired by classics such as Metropolis, 2001 and Bladerunner, using the expressive filmmaking methods seen in films such as Sin City and 300.
2053. The oil has run out. A decaying world is on the brink of total energy war - but there is a glimmer of hope. Obsessive military scientist Dr. Edward Hawks believes a rare fuel found only on the surface of the moon can avert the crisis. Since traditionally fueled rockets are no longer viable, the only hope of reaching the fuel is his unfinished Quantum Displacer - a prototype human teleporter. As each volunteer is transported to the moon he remains trapped in an inter-dimensional Rift- a place where death has many dimensions. As time runs out Hawks is locked in a battle of wills with his final candidate, war hero and legendary test pilot Al Barker - unpredictable, violent and harboring an unsettling but necessary lust for death.
Where we’re at:
We have been pitching the project and there has been a lot of interest. We urgently need funds to complete the development we have already begun. To develop the script further and to produce a kick ass promo - bringing the project to a stage where we are ready to finance the actual film production. We have already invested much time and resources into the project, but we still need $15,000 to achieve our goal.
