Beyond The Light is a multi media short film. I will be combining live shot film, Pixelation and Stop Motion Animation to create the effect of a fantasy world in peril from the loss of its Sun. The characters will interact with fantasy creatures, the orange bunnies, who will be animated and incorporated into the live action shots. the film is to be sent to film festivals and will be free to watch on the web. @ orangejump.com
SYNOPSIS: Time is running out. The sun has gone, and only a few rays of its light remain. People are overcome by the loss of the sun itself. Many are worried that the darkness is coming, and seek shelter underground. Our two main characters, Dexter and Raya, are handling this in their own way. Dexter looks to make a profit off of the panic. He is a bargain man with a must-have item for any person passing by. Raya is a young lady hoping to restore faith to the worried and frightened by masquerading as the sun. Our plot picks up when these two characters meet. They each see through the others facade. Together, they come up with a plan to find the sun. To start them on their journey, they decide to follow an orange bunny, one of the miracle creatures of this land, who are known for being a sign of good luck... But it may be too late as darkness falls and our characters find they must travel beyond the light.
KICKSTARTER GOAL: We are looking to raise a minimum of $4,500. I've shot 1/4 of what I need to do the entire film, and with Kickstarter's help I'll be able to complete this process. I'm looking share my story and vision of it with as many people as possible. Upon completion, Beyond The Light will go out to film festivals and will be free to watch on the web.
BUDGET: we are here on Kickstarter to raise funds for the production of the film. I have the opportunity to work with an amazing talented cast. Combining live action film, Pixelation and Stop Motion, I will be working with gifted puppeteers and compositors. I will need money to buy food for the crew, pay location fees, pay actors, my sound designer and composer. Be a part of the magic and help us bring this to life! We are offering lots of one of a kind incentives for your contributions...
