The Astrological Whipping Boy is Thomas Withers . . . Social recluse and all but friendless as he wanders from day to day looking for satisfaction. But a chance accident lands him in physical therapy, where he meets the lovely Emily, and the sinister Dr. Mickey. Immediately falling for Emily, Thomas embarks on a personal quest to win her over. While unbeknownst to him, Dr. Mickey has other plans in mind for Thomas.

While Thomas attempts to earn Emily's affection, he accidentally lands himself in a world of mental terrorism as Dr. Mickey moves to push Thomas's life in the direction he sees fit . . . regardless of the consequences. 

A WORD FROM THE DIRECTORS

Making movies is our passion. We want to make an excellent short film that has high production value—but, first and foremost, is good art. We want to take the audience to a very strange world, where they can laugh at very odd things.

Using the professional touch of Killship Productions and local Utah actors, James and Michael will travel all across three counties in order to make this film.

We will not settle for a lousy take. We will reschedule, and pour more of our own money into the project, if necessary, to make the project good.

The money will be used soley to:

1-     Reimburse Killship for generous services and equipment.

2-     Reimburse the actors.

3-     Record a great soundtrack with the band “Chercher.”

4-     Feed the cast and crew on set.

5-     Reimburse local businesses for using their locations.

6-     Pay for gas.

7-     Pay for props/wardrobe.
