HEY EVERYBODY, GET READY TO BE PROBED

PROBE is an exciting new sci-fi action adventure short film that you can really get behind!

 What really happens on board a UFO anyway?

You're about to find out.

THE STORY

Our soon to be hero, Jack, is an ordinary schlub having the very worst day of his life, but things really go south when he wakes up on board an alien UFO. Frightened but not alone, he's one of several specimens the aliens have collected. It's when they prepare to probe Jack, that he cracks. It's just too much for one day and for once in his life, Jack takes things into his own hands! He fights back, launches a rescue mission of the rest of the 'hostages' and makes every effort to thwart the alien agenda. 

THE PRODUCTION

We're pushing the bounds of low budget to bring you a glossy feature level production. We're a group of professional filmmakers with top of the line equipment and are able to do this by community effort, pulling our resources and calling in favors from all over the industry. 

The money we receive via Kickstarter will go to actual hard costs of production that we simply can not do ourselves or get for free. All said, there is no greater bang for the buck than the deals we've put together to make this film happen. 

THE REWARDS

We have a bunch of awesome goodies for our supporters including, the PROBE GAME. An app game based on our film. We want you to feel like a true part of the production - you'll have options to get direct backstage access to our process, actual crew gifts and even better - actual movie props! Fun stuff!

THE CREW

MARY CYBRIWSKY, FRANKIE LINDQUIST, JASON SALAZAR, JONATHAN STEWART and KENT KUBENA are working with director CHAD KOCH to produce PROBE and help bring his vision to life. The film is being shot by cinematographer BEN PEYSER on the all new RED EPIC and stars actors ETHAN KEOGH and NYKKY IKALINA
