We are raising funds to shoot a sequel to our award winning short film The Procedure, written and directed by Calvin Reeder. With the majority of the original team returning, we are confident the sequel will live up to the promise of the original.
Hey man, is there a Procedure 1?
You bet there is.
The film be shot in Seattle in fall of 2018. We are raising money for an extensive set build, but also to ensure that OUR CREW GETS PAID.

Risks and challenges
There is no profit to be made from a short film. There's no risk in recouping our money when we know it isn't possible.
All colaborators have promised to see this film through to completion. There are the normal risks of death and murder and an occasional kidnapping, but we have made it through much worse before, so this seems like it should be a smooth ride.
Plain and simple, these are stories we want to tell. They happen to be short ones. It's straight from one brain, amplified by dozens of smarter brains and projected on a screen. The way movies should be.
We promise stories you've never seen or heard before and images that have yet to be created.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
