About this project

The Skin Teaser Trailer: 

Thank you for visiting The Skin page!

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to remove your skin? Are you confident you know what you will find? What if what you see underneath is not what you have been taught? Even worse, what if it had a mind of its own?

Well then...I am glad you visited. 

Synopsis: After receiving a phone call while on her evening jog, a woman begins to experience something strange. Soon her excitement turns to terror. What seem to be blemishes begin to spread. In haste to remove and conceal the infected area, she frantically peels away more than expected.

Sublimation Sinema (Ss) is in the process of raising funds for the production of our first horror short, tentatively titled The Skin. It is an atmospheric and visceral project and is meant to challenge the team and take us to the next level of movie-making. 

Production is scheduled for five days in May. We made the teaser trailer (seen above) mainly from borrowing and favors and with the aid of some incredible and very talented people. Now we have shown you what we can do with practically no budget, we are asking for your help in making this project not only a reality, but one of higher quality. With these funds, we will be able to: afford better equipment; create better and grander FX; pay the incredibly talent people which have joined the team based on faith in the product; and most importantly, make a great short which will both please and disturb the viewer.

Budget Breakdown

Ss was officially formed at the beginning of the year and is comprised of a small group of cinephiles that wish to channel their passion for 'the moving picture' to the art of movie-making. This marks the third short for writer/director/producer Seth Adam.

Risks and challenges

Funding for this project is very important because if we do not meet our goal the project may not be made. Because this is an all-or-nothing campaign if we do not meet our goal we will not receive any funds and you will NOT be charged a single penny. I am not interested in merely making this movie. I want to make something amazing. Our main challenge is creating a genuinely creepy and atmospheric movie that will get under your skin and stay with you.

To achieve this we need to be able to provide each department with the proper means and materials. Quality is our prime objective. I have the fortune of recruiting some extremely talented individuals who are working on favor, and we are trying to compensate them for their time and hard work.
