Adrift is a short horror film set entirely on a sail boat in the middle of the ocean. 

Vic May stars as Vincent in ADRIFT.

Logline: With no witnesses to the murder of his wife, Vincent's paranoid mind takes over while alone at sea.

On Adrift, Burning Shade Productions and Rushing Entertainment have completed almost all of the work. It's been written, shot, and in a locked edit. Now, we just need a little help in bringing the project across the finish line.

For film such as Adrift where dialogue is minimal, paranoia is rampant and and anything beyond the typical ambiance of the sea will drive a man mad, it's crucial for us to have the best sound design possible. We have a veteran sound designer on board who has worked on films spanning both sides of the Marvel Universe (Disney/Marvel Studios & Twentieth Century Fox) who will really help elevate the material. What we also need, which goes hand in hand with sound design, is a composer to create the music score of the film.

We are asking for a total of $5,000 total to help us cover the costs of the above mentioned items as well as festival entry fees. The breakdown is as follows: $2,000 for sound design, $2,000 for musical score and then the remaining $1,000 will be put toward film festival entries and other fees.

Risks and challenges

All the hurdles normally associated with film production have already passed with Adrift.

Once the project is complete, the only last hurdle is getting into the right film festivals. However, nothing is guaranteed with the submission process, so we will be trying to submit to as many festivals as possible with the right audiences in mind.
