"Gotham City Sirens" is a fan film that tells the story of a unstable alliance between Pamela Lillian Isley, Harley Quinn and Selina Kyle. Each of them has a dark past and reputations that have made them into some of Gotham's most notorious criminals.
Catwoman has always been a highly skilled thief and a loner. So when she teams up with Ivy and Harley it's to pursue a very lucrative business opportunity. Naturally it's illegal. But during this partnership Selina has to make some harsh decisions, choices that beg the question is she friend or foe to her new surrogate family.
Selina began her story in the previous fan film I did entilted "The Catwoman". In this resent film she's become stronger and has learned a few more tricks as a master thief.
I don't want to give away too much about Ivy. All I will really say is that she is cold hearted and calculating. Just as you would expect from an individual who hates mankind as much as she does.
Is that Harley?
Yes it is, in this film Quinn is a bit of a Ronin. I wanted to use the Harley's revenge look from the popular Arkham City video game. It seemed appropriate due to the fact that she finds her self with out the guidance of her mentor.
Each year I produce a fan film as a fun marketing tool to hopefully some day lasso that dream job. My wish is to some day become a writer or creator for a major comic book company. From my understanding the talent scout's of all these companies receive enough scripts and written idea's to create furniture. So aside from just having a written treatment I also want to showcase a cool visual of my idea.
The reason I put this project on kickstarter is because I need help with funding. Mostly because my cast is bigger this year. I really want this project to show my growth as a writer and director. While this short could easily be a feature film, I also thought it could be a cool "Machinima" mini series!
This film will actually act as a follow up to a Short that completed last year entitled "The Catwoman,". Almost 11 minutes the last film has received a lot of praise on line pulling in over 40,000 views. However with your help this film will be a lot longer and production value increased.
This short will be made purely out of complete admiration and respect for comics. MY FAN FLIMS ARE NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION. While I like making films like this, I need funding to do it. The budget on the last film was about $300 bucks to make. So as you can see what I am asking for will mostly cover the cost of my actors and ensure production value after the filming is done. I want a very good example of my work in this genre because this may be the last time I produce a film like this. You can only do so much with fan films legally.
I can not complete this movie without funding. We go into production on this starting in August if all goes well.
Risks and challenges
We need funds to pay many actors for up to 5 days of filming, for catering, for gas, and for props.
I have been doing short films for sometime now. The key is to be prepared and to stay focus on the over all concept. I am used to working with minimum budget so if funding is successful it can only help produce a quicker and better product.
One risk is that we could have trouble spreading the word. Please at the very least help us tell people about this project. Any help would be greatly appreciated.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
