SUPERSEEDS: The Movie

Superseeds is a super-powered feature film flowing in the vein of recent motion picture successes such as SUPERBAD, HAROLD AND KUMAR, and KICK ASS.

Set in an urban, modern-day, economic-distraught Los Angeles, Superseeds follows best friends and roommates Avery and Pete in a race to curtail disaster in their city. Two months tardy on rent and with a third closing in swiftly, the duo--accompanied by their hair brained friend "Mouse"---steal a supply of marijuana from Pete's ex- employer to sell and profit, in hopes of clearing their rental debt. In the process, they unknowingly take the fruits of a Mad Scientist's labor.

Now, having sold the discovery-of-the-century, prior to uncovering the truth themselves, they must locate their friends and recover the missing merchandise before its bi-polar creator comes gunning for them--literally.

WORD!

Two years in the making, this feature film was designed to be a stepping stone for all parties involved. It packs a host of laughs that've gathered very positive, vocal responses across readers of various ages and promises to deliver a high-concept, high- energy feel equal to that of productions several times larger.

And, We do mean two years! Writing on this project began in 2008 and, now up to about eleven drafts and at least four completely different stories, it's time to get a move on!

While there are some "earthy" undertones (if you get my drift), Superseeds does not focus on these things. At heart, it's a feature about a group of young adults making an effort to pay their rent, albeit in all the wrong ways, and learning how to take responsibility for their actions.

The project has a lot of positives going for it:

Rainfall Films (www.rainfallfilms.com) is set to helm post production in all areas.
- We've got a solid, small yet dedicated crew.
- Shooting on the greatest Digital Technology, two fully blown RED ONE MX Upgraded Cameras.
- And we've got the raw talent in front of the lens to rock it.

With all of that said, we still need some capital to make it happen!

Where's the green at!?

We plan to pay our actors under SAG contract, feed them as well, pay our crew gas money to show up. We'll also need money for location fees, a few permits and safety for the stunts we'll be pulling off!

Funds for post production are needed as well, which will be combined with our "sweat equity" (as my friend loves to call it) to bring this project to daylight.

It's all going to good places, and the more we can get the better this feature film will be for your viewing.

Rewards Zone
