About this project
A rootless, world wandering, older man meets a beautiful young photographer who drinks too much. They hook up, travel together, he’s in love, she is not. Then one day she finds him dead in a hotel room in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, gunshot to the chest.
The beauty discovers his notebooks. They are filled with cryptic drawings and strange arrows and the books lead her to a volcano in Rwanda and the mountain gorillas that live there. A transformation is taking place.
On the blackest of nights she performs rituals around a fire and is reborn in a pond on another planet. It is a stark magnificent place, an empty planet with crystals covering the ground. There the beauty discovers a huge monolith, the Tachyon Converter, which takes random bits of information and constructs a reality. In this case it is constructing the narrative of this film.
The part of the movie i just described is already complete and runs about twenty-five minutes. The final movie will be feature length.
In a way I have been using my own Tachyon Converter to make this movie. I take random bits of information and rearrange them into a narrative. The information comes from the places I visit and the situation I find myself in. It is a new way of working for me and it is very exciting. I know where the film is going. It will end at a strange bar called Sweetie Poops as the regular patrons celebrate the last night before the bar closes forever. But I am not sure how it will get there. I discover it as I go along. The movie comes together as my life comes together.
I want to complete this project in the next few months. I would like to pay a few people, rent some locations, and travel a bit more to fill in the blanks of the narrative. Thank you Kickstarter for giving me a shot.
