William Shakespeare never had this in mind when he wrote Julius Caesar. Help us make Shakespeare turn over in his grave!

The Story:

Set against the backdrop of a post-apocalyptic world, the story follows the downfall of Rome’s most honored citizen, Marcus Brutus, as he conspires to assassinate Julius Caesar in order to forestall tyranny and preserve democracy.

The Production:

The vision is to secure some sort of large Industrial Warehouse/Factory type space, probably in Brooklyn or Queens, and shoot the entire film inside this facility. Our production designer will create a set that can be manipulated to represent the various locations of the story. To that end, lighting and sound design will be key in setting the tone and establishing locations. The point won't be to hide the fact that we are in a warehouse, but rather embrace it as the stage for our "play".

The concept is a kind of post-apocalyptic Rome, in which Caesar has restored a thriving and ordered society after a period of long and bitter wars. Costumes will be modern. But not suits and ties. More like remnants from a time before the collapse.

The approach will be very much like that of a stage production, leaning more toward minimalism and abstract storytelling techniques opposed to historical authenticity. I want to preserve the essence of a live performance and the experience of watching actors tell a story, while at the same time, create an amazing visual experience through dynamic cinematography. 

Rehearsals for this project will begin at the end of February 2015 and continue for three weeks. Principal photography will take place during the last two weeks of March 2015.

Casting:

In September we conducted a workshop of the script. It culminated in a staged reading presentation for invited guests. The event was held at the DiMenna Center for Classical Music, Mary Flagler Cary Hall. We were very fortunate to have an amazing ensemble of actors join us to explore the script. If the stars align in our favor, offers will be made to this same group of talented individuals, along with a host of other high quality performers.

Below is a list of some of the actors, who participated in the workshop:

Crew:

We are assembling an amazing crew of Rockstars to put this movie together. Everyone brings their unique talents and a wealth of experience to the table.

Below is a list of some of the folks we have engaged with the project so far:

How will the funds be used?

If we reach our goal of $75,000 it will allow us to move into pre-production and make the necessary arrangements to begin filming in March 2015.

If we raise $100,000 we will have enough funding to ensure completion of principal photography on schedule.

If we raise $125,000 we will have enough funds to take this project all the way through post-production and have a completed film ready for festival submissions by late Fall of 2015.

The money will cover the following expenses:

  • Secure the factory location for 2 weeks of rehearsal and 2 weeks of filming.  Estimated @ $10,000
  • Pay the salaries of cast and crew for the entire 5 week rehearsal/production period.  Estimated @ $91,950
  • Provide meals, snacks, and beverages for all cast and crew during the entire production period.  Estimated @ $2,000
  • Cover the expense of equipment rentals and purchases necessary to fulfill the vision of this project.  Estimated @ $5,000
  • Cover the expense of purchasing materials needed to construct the set for the project.   Estimated @ $5,000
  • Provide transportation for cast and crew to and from the set as needed.   Estimated @ $1,000
  • Cover the rental expense for a cargo van/truck needed to transport equipment during the production period.   Estimated @ $350
  • Pay for the salaries and fees involved with editing, color correcting, after effects, and sound mixing the raw footage.  Estimated @ $12,250
  • Cover all fees associated with Union Deposits, Workman's Compensation and Liability Insurance Coverage.   Estimated @ $4,500
  • Total Estimated Cost of Production: $131,050

Past Work:

Our team has become quite adept at producing micro-budget movies. The last two films we made were well received by audiences and critics alike in several film festivals around the United States and internationally. My directorial debut feature film, The Assassin, premiered at the 2007 Urbanworld VIBE Film Festival. It was an official selection of several other programs and festivals, including the 2006 IFP-NY Rough Cut Lab, the 2008 Pan African Film Festival, and the 2008 Nashville Film Festival

Most recently, Francis of Brooklyn, a film I produced and served as Assistant Director on, has played in multiple festivals around the country and internationally, winning several awards, including Best Feature at the 2013 DIY Film Festival, and picking up Best Director & Best Actor Awards at the 2012 Bootleg International Film Festival.

Both of these movies are now available to view on Amazon Instant Video and other online platforms.

Every member of our team brings a wealth of experience to the table. With this new project, we are poised to take what we have learned on the micro-budget level and apply those same cost effective techniques to a higher profile production.

Why tell this story now?

We live in a time of amazing political and social turmoil. The ideas and themes present in William Shakespeare's play are perfect metaphors for the turbulent times we now endure.

I want to change the face of what Shakespeare is "supposed" to look like by telling this story in a way that's fresh and relevant and captures the diversity of our unique democratic society. My hope is, that by bringing Shakespeare's words into this modern context, we will foster an appreciation for the world's most celebrated dramatist among a new generation and encourage young audiences to think critically about the society in which they live.

The Story あらすじ

シェイクスピアのローマ史に基づいて書かれた、マルクス・ブルータスが暴政を行うジュリアス・シーザー(ユリウス・カエサル)の暗殺を企む悲劇の物語をもとに、 時代背景を世界が滅亡した後の世紀末に置き換えます。

The Production プロダクション

全ての撮影をクイーンズかブルックリンの大きな倉庫か工場のような場所で行います。 撮影セットを変えていくことにより場面転換をしていきます。さらに、照明と効果音を有効に演出することで場面ごとのトーンを変えていきます。倉庫や工場であることはあまり隠さず、「演劇」のような舞台転換を映画として撮影していきます。  

世界崩壊後のローマ帝国というような背景で、長きにわたる苦しい戦争の後、シーザーがどのように秩序と繁栄を取り戻していくのかというのがコンセプトです。衣装は現代風ですが、スーツとネクタイという感じではなく、崩壊前の服装の切れ端を使い回したような風貌です。  

通常の映画撮影方法ではなく、劇場の舞台の上を撮影するような方法で、よりシンプルで抽象的な技法を取り入れ、歴史的な信憑性を深めます。役者が話を進めていくという生の舞台の良さを取り入れつつ、同時に映画にしか出来ないダイナミックな映像も取り入れたいと思っています。  

リハーサルは2015年2月の終わりから3週間続きます。主な写真撮影は3月の後半に行います。

Casting キャスト

9月には台本読みのワークショップを行いました。最終日には招待客を呼んでの舞台となりました。場所はDiMenna Center for Classical Music, Mary Flagler Cary Hall.  

幸運にも、今回のワークショップにたくさんの素晴らしい役者さんたちをお呼びすることができました。このように個性的で才能ある大物の役者さん達が集まってくだされば、願い通りの質のいい作品になることと思います。

Crew スタッフ

今回この映画に向けて素晴らしいスター達が協力してくださいます。  みなさん独自の才能と豊富な経験を発揮してくださいます。

How will the funds be used? 支援金の使用目的?

もし$75,000(約750万円)を集めることができた場合、2015年の3月に予定している撮影を開始することができます。  

もし$100,000(1千万円)まで集められたなら、予定している写真撮影を行います。  

もし$125,000(1250万円)まで資金が集まった場合、2015年晩秋の映画祭に出展する準備ができます。

資金の使い道:

  • 工場での2週間のリハーサルと2週間の撮影の確保
  • キャストとスタッフの5週間分(リハーサルを含む)の給料
  • 期間中のキャストとスタッフの食費
  • セット機材のレンタル料、または必要な購入費
  • 背景や小道具の購入費用
  • キャストとスタッフの期間中の交通費
  • 期間中の荷物運搬の為のバン、トラックのレンタル料
  • 撮影後の音楽、効果音、カラー編集に必要な費用
  • 期間中の労働災害補償と自賠責保険 

Past Work 前の作品

私たちチームは以前にもかなり資金規模の小さな映画を手がけました。前の2作品では、観客とアメリカ国内外のいくつかの映画祭から高評価をいただきました。私の初の監督作品「ザ・アサシン〜暗殺者〜」は2007 Urbanworld VIBE Film Festivalに出展されました。他にも2006 IFP-NY Rough Cut Lab, 2008 Pan African Film Festival, 2008 NashvilleFilm Festivalなどのプログラムや映画祭にオフィシャルセレクトされています。  

一番最近の作品で、私がプロデュース兼助監督を務めた「聖者フランシス」は、国内外からの映画祭で上映され、2013 DIY Film Festivalでは最優秀長編作品賞を受賞、2012 Bootleg International Film Festivalでは最優秀監督賞並びに最優秀男優賞を受賞しました。  

この2作品は現在アマゾン インスタントビデオと他のオンラインツールでもご視聴いただけます。私たちチームの全メンバーが総力を捧げて創り上げました。新しいこのプロジェクトに関しましても、規模が大きくない事に変わりはありませんが、これらの映画から学んだ事を生かして、さらに努力と技巧を凝らして高みに望んでいく所存です。

Why tell this story now? 何で今この物語

私たちは今政治的にも社会的にも混乱の時期を迎えています。このウィリアム・シェイクスピアの劇の思考とテーマは、その乱世の時代背景と私たちが今耐えているものにマッチし、比喩として最高の表現方法だと思うのです。  

私は、シェイクスピアの「こうであるべき」という壁をとっぱらい、古い型にはまらない技法と多種多様な人選をして、ユニークで民主的な現代社会に馴染むようにしたいのです。希望としては、シェイクスピアの言葉ですが背景はモダンにすることによって、少しでも若い世代がシェイクスピアにふれあい興味を持ち、今自分たちが住む社会についてより深く考えるようになってくれればと思うのです。

Risks and challenges

Because Kickstarter is an "All or Nothing" platform, our upcoming production weighs heavily on the success of our campaign. We'll be doing everything we can to reach people who might believe in the value of this project as we do, and do our best to encourage their participation, involvement and support.

WEATHER: There is always the risk of uncooperative weather especially during the tail end of winter in New York. We are doing everything we can to ensure the appropriate amount of snow days scheduled.

CAST: Because we are aiming to work with actors with established careers, there is always the risk of having one or more of our performers present schedule conflicts due to higher profile production offers. In this event, we will do everything in our power to accommodate their scheduling needs within reason. However, if no concession can be made, we will work aggressively to find replacements of equal or greater status to keep the production alive and viable.

CREW: We will be using New York based crew and film student interns throughout the production. We are working not only to secure the appropriate amount of people to make this film happen but also the right personnel to create a cohesive unit.

LOCATIONS: We have been diligently searching to find the key location for the project. We plan to work closely with a professional location scout and a location consultant, both of whom specialize in this particular type of space.

EQUIPMENT: The camera and the supporting equipment will be insured. We have carefully planned out contingencies in case something unforeseen arises.

POST PRODUCTION: Films in general are a long process but we are working hard to ensure that this film has an original soundtrack, gets edited, sound designed, and completed in time for 2016 Festival Season deadlines.

    Pledge $10,000 About $10,000

    There are simply no words for any person who would make this incredible leap and contribute $10,000 to our endeavor. Thank you for believing in us so much, and for making this production possible! For a pledge of $10,000, first of all, our eternal gratitude, respect, and never-ending thanks. We want to make you an Executive Producer of the film. What does that mean? It means you get ALL of the above and an Exclusive All-Access Pass to the set with the cast and crew making magic happen. Your Executive Producer credit will show up in the film's final Credits and all related literatures/forums related to the film, including IMDb and media-related platforms, and you'll be intimately connected to all of the film's developments to come. IN ADDITION to the 2 Tickets for the NYC Premier Screening and After Party, you will ALSO receive 2 Tickets for the World Premier Screening of the film. We'll never be able to say thank you enough!
