About

The Story

Nathan, a former partner of a terminated secret Dark Matter experiment, tries to sell its secrets for profit and the good of humanity.  But his potential buyer has more sinister plans for the technology.

Its the perfect short as it has a detailed backstory, relationship drama, action, thrills, and science.  If there is genuine interest in the finished piece, it could very easily be fleshed out into a larger feature length story in the future.

The Vision

To create a short film that doesn't feel like a short, but instead feels more like a feature film.  In order to fulfill this vision, I've casted great actors and will pay them for their amazing work.  Along with that expense comes hotel and wardrobe costs.  I also want to film in real locations of a grand scale to add to the realism of the piece.  This will require permits and insurance which are costly on such a small budget.  Given all these challenges, I am in need of funds to fulfill this projects vision.  I have access to production and edit equipment as I work as a Director of Photography and Video Editor full time, so the only real costs for the project will be for the actors, crew, locations, and permits. 

I've just finished up casting the project and have some great actors on board.  Chris Moss will be playing Nathan, he's done numerous television shows and commercials including Hawaii-Five-O.  Ralph Guzzo has been cast as the Villian.  He's worked with some of the greats, including Al Pacino.  And Alix Bidstrup will be playing Miranda, Nathan's ex-girlfriend.

Risks and challenges

Ridley Scott once said (paraphrasing), "To make a great film, all you need is a great actor, and a camera." What makes a great film is a good story and thats what I've set out to accomplish.

I work full-time as a DP/Editor at a production company in Orange County and have all the skills necessary to create a compelling piece. I've won multiple Telly Awards for my work. Including the coveted SILVER AWARD (highest honor) in 2012.

Rather than always working on clients videos, I want to create my own unique work to showcase my writing/directing ability.
