About

Three criminals and a hostage, wait out a police search in an abandoned house after a heist gone badly.

Tommy is the planner, the man in charge, the leader in this group of underbellies of society. Today is the day that his plan goes awry. What starts as a simple theft from a drug distribution front turns into the peeling away of clues and discovery of what really went down.

Vivienne is the driver. She’s also married to Tommy. These two have shared 15 years of life and crime and she’s burnt out. Today is the day she’s decided to make a move for West and see where the chips may fall. It might have been something, if Tommy hadn’t walked in on them.

West is the muscle. He’s emotional, spontaneous and totally unpredictable. He’s ready to move up the ladder and start planning deals himself. But, he’s also a doper and when the deal went south, he grabbed the closest kilo of coke and a hostage before heading back to the safe house.

Amanda is the hostage. She’s a sight for sore eyes, as they say. She’s also smart, maybe too smart and this collective has underestimated her interest in the take.

The tension rises as they play each other out, in a game of betrayal and violence, for the extrinsic reward.

Risks and challenges

The Mercenary Opus Movie Project faces the usual risks of film and TV production — what if Mike Altieri joins a band of villains in Gotham with the evil plan of wiping out everyone's memory? What if ninja rivals poke Shauna’s eyes out? Never fear: we are offsetting those risks with contingency plans, and a production team with decades of experience.

One of our biggest challenges is coordinating schedules. We only have a two weeks to shoot and our cast members have additional obligations. We’re going to do our best to coordinate everyone’s availability, and we think we’ve figured out timing that works best for the cast and crew. We’re going to do our best to include these current actors we have attached, as we did end up with our first choices, however it’s possible that an actor won’t be available during our shooting window.. In that case, we have actors standing by, from the auditions, who would love to play the character they auditioned for.

Distribution is always a challenge with low-budget films, but we have a very executable plan (Top Secret...direct message me for details) that is going to help us distribute the movie, and try to get it out there as widely as possible.

With respect to rewards fulfillment, we will be working with a professional fulfillment partner to get all your DVDs, digital downloads, and other goodies delivered safely and on schedule.

I’ll be sending regular updates about our progress to all backers, so you’ll be the first to know about what’s going on.
