About this project
November Renaissance is a cutting edge Sci-fi thriller in the early stages of production. Our goal is to utilize the kickstarter platform as a means to fund a well executed short film, the first stepping stone in making this project a feature film and beyond.
Kickstarter offers us a unique opportunity to generate interest in our project and fan supported confidence in our abilities to produce a film that not only has a very exciting story but also will be a professional quality production. All money raised will go directly to production of the short film, a tool that will be utilized to push the project onto feature tier production. We hope that Kickstarter will give us the opportunity to show our early work to large numbers of potential fans, who will be excited about our film and get involved in helping to make November Renaissance a reality.
We invite everyone to visit our facebook and webpage for updates and to facilitate a platform for communicating between the fans, backers, and the production team. Share your ideas, talk to the cast and crew and spread the word about November Renaissance.
"Our main concern and goal with November Renaissance is to move away from the dark and gritty dystopian ideals of present Sci-Fi and more toward exciting prosperity, examining how new technology and new breakthroughs may benefit mankind in new and innovative ways versus hinder." - Clayton Haugen and Michael Gee
November Renaissance is set in a prosperous golden age of economic recovery waiting in the near future. It is a time of a second renaissance, with thriving new ideas and advancing technologies.
The story primarily concerns the self-made celebrity scientist and founder of first generation nanotechnology, Jaxon Hall. November Renaissance deals with Jaxon's exploits of living a double life of a corporate executive and a notorious cyber criminal. His "criminal" personna has a Robin Hood complex, bent on preserving the good fortune of the times from those who wish to regain the financial strangleholds of the past.
Jaxon works closely with a team of hand picked cyber criminals as they utilize Jaxon's mega-corporation, Gastalt, as a front to fund and hide their "do good" acts of crime against rival corporations.
The project has gone to great lengths to assemble a powerful cast capable of bringing to life this ambitious project.
