Echoes is a play on the 80's slasher films that have left a longstanding mark on popular culture, even today.  

Tackling a slasher story from the killer's perspective, his plans change when his targets turn the tables. With the hunter now becoming the hunted, this time he'll be the one fighting for his life. A past connection to his pursuers will make his fight both a physical and psychological one.

Echoes is a thesis film for my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at Emerson College, to be put into production the Summer of 2016.  While this project is for school, it also has personal significance to me.  The slasher genre has been a favorite of mine for a long time, and the goal is to fully do it justice.  As a cinematography major, an incredibly amount of attention will be put into capturing the look and feel of those old films while also presenting something new and original. 

Fully bringing this project to life is going to require several thousand dollars, only $500 of which is provided by the school.  Anything not obtained from the school, Kickstarter, or outside donations will be coming out of my own savings.  I'm more than willing to put in as much as I have for the completion of this film, but unfortunately I don't have enough personally to fund the entire project. This kickstarter is only asking for a small amount of the full budget, as any little bit is extremely helpful. Any money will be put towards transportation for cast and crew, feeding the cast and crew over the five days of shooting, renting equipment not provided by the college, and submissions to film festivals upon the film's completion.

Risks and challenges

All films are inherently a challenge to bring to fruition. In order to combat any issues that may arise, we've assembled a team of incredibly talented individuals to work on this project as both the cast and crew, all of whom have amassed a large amount of experience working on film projects. I'm confident that we will be able to work past any problems that come up in order to create the best film possible.
