You live with a guy, you love the same goofy sci-fi, you love the guy. But he calls you dude. This is a situation Hal wishes would change with her housemate Olly, a locksmith and wannabe superhero who only has eyes for an extraterrestrial hottie. When Olly has a close encounter with the being of his dreams, things turn very ugly. Sometimes you have to cross the final frontier to find love on your home planet.

This is the synopsis of Max Thrust, an original screenplay written by Dom Hilton.  Please take a look at our pitch video and incentive list. 

Here are some of the reasons we need your help:

Costumes and props: We'll need to make everyone believe that these superheroes actually existed.  Therefore, we must have custom made unitards, patches, posters, life sized cutouts, etc.  These things cost money.

Festival submissions: We could make a brilliant little film, but is a film any good if no one is around to see it (please pardon the "getting all zen/tree falling in the forest moment")?  Anyway, we will need funds to submit this film to several festivals, starting with the Philadelphia Film Festival this fall (holy alliteration, Max Thrust!).

Meals, transportation, etc.: We all do this for the love of it, but in order to sustain basic life, we see the need to actually feed our cast and crew.  The film will take a few days to shoot, and we must provide proper sustenance so that our actors don't turn into divas and walk out on set.

We would love the opportunity to bring Max to life!  Thanks for watching!

FAQ

  • This is why we generally stay behind the camera, and let our awesome actors make you a believer. Once more, with feeling.

  • Not in the slightest. While Max and Xenon's logos both hint towards the "male" and "female" symbols (as well as the male and female genitalia), this is all part of the goofy nature of the film. Crotch comedy can be very funny, and you don't even have to show any skin!

  • We love making films. This film will ride the line between silly and having a good message at the end. What's more endearing than nerds finding true love via some action stars in spandex? It's entertainment, people, lighten up!

  • As a kid, teen, tween, or full grown adult, have you ever been obsessed with a superhero or comic book character? Max Thrust will be in the ball park of the Adam West interpretation of Batman in the 1970's mixed with Buck Rogers in the 25th Century of the 1980's. If none of this resonates, we fully understand you navigating away from this page right about now...
