OFFICIAL SELECTION SLAMDANCE 2014

We need your help to finish our film! We have been selected to screen in competition at Slamdance but we need your help to finish our film. We had submitted a rough cut to Slamdance and we now have less than 40 days to complete the film! Our movie still needs post production work for audio and color correction and  music rights. We also have Canadian graphic artist Peter Diamond lined up to do our poster.  We are keeping our cost very low, so every little bit helps. 

Here is a little bit about our Documentary-

Elliot Scott plans on becoming Canada’s first action hero with his third low-budget action film, Blood Fight. This bizarre story spans two years in the life of Elliot, his supportive partner Linda Lum, and their cast and crew of outrageous dreamers striving to achieve success. As Linda tries to ground Elliot in reality and commit to their relationship he retreats further and further into his world of make-believe. Elliot sees himself as a moralistic hero; however, as Linda probes into Elliot’s impressive martial arts history, his Asian lineage, and his tragic past, she begins to unravel all of Elliot's tall tales. With everyone’s hopes and dreams pinned on Elliot, this film asks, “can you believe in your dreams too much before you end up living in a fantasy world?”

What began as a comedic look at a passionate amateur filmmaker unfolds into a shocking and complex examination of how we lie to ourselves. "Elliot" is an unbelievable comedic/drama documentary that blends both cinema-verité and candid interviews to probe for the truth in the most unlikely place.

Our project is at a Rough Cut stage, meaning we have shot and edited the film. We have financed the movie mostly ourselves to this point. Our raised funds from this Kickstarter campaign will be allocated to picture post, sound post, music rights, soundtrack and delivery. With a successful campaign we will be able to complete the polishing of the film. Please help us bring "Elliot" to SLAMDANCE and join the team!

Risks and challenges

Any risk associated with the project has, for the most part, been mitigated by the completion of production as well as having the film at a fine cut stage. The only thing keeping people from enjoying this movie is the final post production work. Please help this unique and beautiful come to life.
