Three Wonderful Seconds (a short horror film) 

About this project 

Where will you be with the apocalypse happens? Will you recognize it? Three Wonderful Seconds is a moment in time on a number of levels for three 12-year-old girls as they live their lives co-dependent on technology, consumed by social media, and ill-prepared for reality that is often thrust upon us at any moment. Throw in a first kiss before the chaos and a few fireworks. 

This 20-22 minute short will be filmed over the course of 3-4 days in Santa Barbara and is intended for film festival submissions. 

We have a great team of established actors, actresses, filmmakers, and support crew who are all very passionate about this project. 

The funds raised will go towards: 

• Food 

• Hair & Makeup Artist 

• Special Effects Makeup Artist 

• Key production team expenses 

• Optimal sound production 

• Rental of certain productions equipment 

 • County Film Permit (when needed) 

• Police car(s) and officer rental for shot (if budget permits) 

• Film festival submission fees 

Please consider donating. Any amount will help make production value go up and translate to film festival consideration down the road. And you never know, tomorrow could be the last day on Earth! 

Thank you, from Ryan Grau (writer, director, actor) and the rest of the cast and crew. 

Risks and challenges

Coordinating filming between the demands of family and the upcoming graduation ceremonies for all of our young actors and actresses has been our biggest challenge so far (besides funding, of course). Everyone is super supportive, but family and education come first. Summer provides open schedules, and with your help, funding!
