This small project started out as a big idea from our director's great script. The story was so good that the more he talked about it the more people wanted to work on it. And as the team got bigger, so did the project. Now we have the urge to do the thing we love the most; an awesome film. Sci-Fi is always a complicated genre and filmmaking is always a challenge, a lot to get done with small budgets. Although we have created a budget in the most frugal of manners, there is much to be done, and the costs are not as friendly as our collaborators.

Éste proyecto inició con una gran idea creada desde el increíble guión de nuestro director. La historia era tan buena, que entre más hablábamos de eso, más gente quería involucrarse en el cortometraje. Mientras más crecía el equipo, el proyecto comenzó a crecer de igual manera. Ahora tenemos las ganas de hacer lo que más amamos; cine. La Ciencia Ficción siempre es un genero complicado, y hacer cine es siempre un desafío... hay mucho por hacer con recursos reducidos. Aunque hemos creado un presupuesto de la manera más cuidadosa, queda todavía mucho que llevar a cabo y los costos no son tan amigables como nuestros colaboradores.

Among these production costs are:

Entre los costos de producción se encuentran:

·Talent expenses ·Crew Wages ·Locations ·Set construction ·Production Design ·Prop construction ·Camera Equipment ·Transportation ·Post production expenses ·Visual Effects ·Sound design ·Color correction ·Original Score.

·Talento ·Gastos del personal y crew ·Locaciones ·Construcción del set ·Diseño de Producción ·Elaboración de props ·Equipo técnico y de cámara ·Transporte ·Post-producción ·Efectos visuales ·Diseño en audio ·Corrección de Color ·Música original

Risks and challenges

The most complex aspect of our film is anything that includes special effects. Most of our scenes requiere the use of "chroma key" as part of the wardrobe and props that interact with the actors. That means that these have to be managed very skillfully in both set and post production stages for it to be a successful endeavor.

All set backs can be resolved, but VFX difficulties require more time, and therefore more money. So the risk is falling behind schedule and not being able to adapt our budget in time. But this is exactly why we have a team of professionals highly qualified for the tasks that may to come. Your investment is safe with us.

La parte más complicada y riesgosa del cortometraje es en el área de los efectos especiales, puesto a que hay muchas escenas con "chroma key" en actores, la cual tiene que ser manejada con mucha destreza tanto en set como en post producción.

Todos los contratiempos se pueden solucionar, pero en el caso de VFX , arreglarlos implica mas tiempo y por consecuencia más dinero. El mayor riesgo es entonces, atrasarnos y no poder ajustar nuestro presupuesto conforme a las necesidades del corto. Sin embargo tenemos profesionales altamente capacitados para poder enfrentar todos los retos que se presenten. Su inversión esta a salvo con nuestro equipo.
