About this project
"Darkk Storage" is a bone chilling horror about Julie, a beautiful woman that discovers her fiance is cheating on her just after getting fired from her job. As the day couldn't get any worse, (or so she thinks) she unloads her life into a storage facility, hoping that will help her move on with her pathetic life. The storage facility might be the last place Julie will ever know...
I am so happy to be a part of the ever growing community of Kickstarters to raise the money to make our film. I know this is my first project, (with many more to follow) but having the freedom to create is exhilarating. The script is locked, and we are almost done with pre-production, we just need additional funding for a few things.
We are fortunate to secure a great cinematographer, Mike Budde.
He is able to provide us with a RED camera package through his company, Lightspeed LA, which is more expensive, but top quality. Mike's grip and lighting house will also cover all of what we need for those departments.
People say the most expensive part of any budget on a film, besides the cast and above the line, is the location, boy they weren't kidding. We found a great location to film that fits the project perfect, so 30% of this campaign is for the location.
The remaining funds will be used for production and post production needs. (e.g. craft service, score, makeup, transportation, sound, editing).

Shahnti Olcese Brook is a Peabody Recipient and Emmy Award winning producer. Shahnti has had the privilege of working with some of the biggest talent out there, and was the creative force on many projects for NBC Universal, Paramount Pictures, Telepictures, PBS, KTLA, Syfy and more. Throughout her career, her remarkable rapport with celebrities and executives adds a great spark to every production and network she is involved with. Her remarkable producing skills will definitely keep me in check so we don't go over budget. Yes she has my last name, because it's my beautiful and talented wife. So you most likely will hear "Yes dear" a lot on set.

Stretch Goal: $$5,000
We hope to get the funding we need for this film, but if we exceed (finger, eyes, toes crossed), we can spread the shoot out over 2 days instead of one. Which means 2, 8-10 hour days, rather than one, 16-20 hour day. The crew and the cast would be refreshed for the 2nd day of the shoot, thats the action day!
Meet the Cast:
"Julie" will be played by the beautiful CBS show "Vegas" actress Pernille Trojgarrd.
"Scott" will be played by the very talented, Gabriel Myers.
"Chris Darkk" will be played by the rising star, Eddie Navarro.
"Sloth" will be played by the very scary, and intimidating Cory Roberts.
We all look forward to making this film with the help of you, the real funders of creativity.
Risks and challenges
"Change and risk go hand in hand, and the life without risk can not be a full life. For human beings are by nature dynamic and full of life and energy. Let change happen... go with it... move with it... learn from it."
With the right tools, any job can be completed successfully. We feel that there are really no big risks to complete this short. Our crew is a very talented group, that has 40+ years of combined experience doing what we do best, making films. With this funding, we will be able to get a better camera, and a perfect location for a better quality film.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
