About

THE STORY

At its core, "Flytrap", is a story about two friends, Cale and Pab, as they overcome and begin to accept their grief from the loss of their roommate (Dan), which creates the catalyst for their self discovery. Along the way, Cale's infatuation with the new neighbor (Izzy) blossoms into a foreboding relationship, sending them on a wild chase of survival and discovery. 

So, how do we tell it?

Comedy is our forte. We get off on being able to connect with people through laughter. But we also kind of like horror movies. So why not do both? While 'Flytrap' isn't really a horror, it might be pretty dark in most parts. A little bit of buddy comedy, hijinks, and cat-n-mouse, 'Flytrap' is a crafty little devil of a movie designed to make you giggle and wince at the same time.

Risks and challenges

Every project encounters unexpected obstacles. Actually, to be a professional filmmaker is probably one of the hardest career paths to go down. We're not rich, we're not famous. Caylan is an accountant, Ethan is a photographer and cinematographer, and Patrick is working on an island through the summer to fund this movie. We're dropping our credit cards and our savings account into this. It's our Hail Mary, our Kevin Smith's 'Cerks,' our 'Puffy Chair' (Mark Duplass), our 'Bad Taste' (Peter Jackson), our 'Following' (Christopher Nolan), etc.

Throughout, we've discovered a lot of different ways to solve our problems. We've got that wealth of knowledge, a wealth of crew, and an exorbitant amount of skill between us and our friends. We've got a huge talent pool to pull from, and it's set us in the right path, but now we need the resources.

After preproduction, production, and editing, color correction, sound and distribution, we anticipate this project exceeding the 50,000 dollar mark. But no film is cheap, and your donation not only provides resource to pay, feed, and house our cast and crew, but also deems you as one of our (more) fake brothers and sisters.

So the $30k? That's to get the film in the can. From there on out we can hoof it, beg, borrow, and steal to print the film. None of the preproduction budget goes to our pockets. In fact, we're flying, housing, paying and transporting ourselves. It does, however get us:

Insurance - $1000
Food - $6300
Crew - $15000
Equipment - $3500
Production Design - $4200

We want to bring you along from the start will help backers. Understand that our project is a work in progress, and that we’ve thought through all of the possible outcomes, and we want you to be including in the finished result.

After all is said and done, our wrap party? That's gonna be a banger, and you're invited.
