The Story

Cornelius is stuck in a tedious office job. One day he gets diagnosed with a rare and deadly disease and begins to fall apart, literally. He finds solace in the only place he can think of, a whorehouse. There he finds a perfect distraction, love. A story about the healing power of love for hire.

The Look

We are creating a surreal environment for our characters to live in. Our Mise-en-scène will consist of stylistic set design and expressionist lighting that will complement the characters and their wardrobes. 

Your Money

Fortunately, we have made a handful of short films in the past with shoestring budgets. We pride ourselves on our ability to work creatively around finances. However, would like to see what we could do with a little more money.

We are looking for $4,000. The money will be spent on makeup and special effects, set design, transportation, equipment, permits, and food for the cast and crew. We plan on putting most of the money on screen so you can see your investment in each scene.

Any donation will be greatly appreciated. If you can't make a donation please help us spread the word about our KickStarter page.
