That Awkward Moment is a comedy/fantasy short film about Grant Miller, a lonely man who spends a lot of time on a popular social networking site. Grant invents a fake account for an imaginary girlfriend so he can create the appearance of being in a relationship, but soon finds that she has somehow come to life. Grant then discover that he can manipulate reality to become anything he wants-spy, Starship Captain - simply by updating his status. From the award-winning writing/directing team behind Steve From Accounting Vs. The Shadow Dwellers, That Awkward Moment is mind-bending fun that also examines the importance of being yourself to be happy.
That Awkward Moment will be entered into film festivals across the U.S., and it is our hope to combine the film with "Steve From Accounting Vs. The Shadow Dwellers" and another high end short film for a potential DVD/streaming media release as an anthology feature film.
While the cast, crew and top-notch HD video gear are already in place, the elaborate production design needed to bring Grant's imagination to the screen will require a minimum of $2,000. Money will also be needed for day to day expenses (feeding the cast and crew, etc) and to create the musical score.
Risks and challenges
The risks and challenges are that making a short film on a low budget is always a difficult prospect, and with the high number of short films submitted into festivals every year, being accepted into festivals is never guaranteed. However, we believe that our previous films, particularly "Steve From Accounting Vs. The Shadow Dwellers", which has already been accepted into 5 international film festivals, prove that we are capable of overcoming these challenges. in addition, the high production quality proided by the Rep Epic camera and our excellent crew distinguishes the project from other short films.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
