About

 In a group therapy session, Marsh, an eccentric cosplayer who believes he’s an alien, meets Conny, an artist with multiple personalities. There they meet a variety of other mentally unstable people (ranging from god complexes to nymphomania and depression). However, when people stop showing up and the word murder comes into play, a game of Clue begins.

“The Usual Suspects meets Garden State on an alien spacecraft.”

 With no budget and a lot of passion from all of our cast and crew, we managed to shoot seven days and make a great trailer. However shooting the feature would require 30 days of filming and we need money to pay the cast and crew and to cover the following costs listed in the budget breakdown.

$80,000 ($8,888 for kickstarter fees) is the minimum amount that will cover all the costs to film, but we do have stretch goals that would get us better production value (better visual effects, minimum wages, and better locations).

We are hoping that kickstarter will engage fans who enjoy psychological and fantasy elements in films.

Shooting a film with no budget is hard and cutting corners tends to follow suit. We don't want to have to cut corners and we want to make the best film possible. We want to make a visually engaging film that evokes emotion and that has intriguing characters.

Risks and challenges

This is a big project and it's going to take a lot of time and effort to make it great. There will be many late nights of filming where I ask myself why I chose this line of work instead of the noble life of a businessman. "I could be stealing candies from corporate babies or sitting in limo with industrial cats" I'll say aloud to the cast and crew, and then wave my hand to signal action.

Over the last five years I've worked on short films, web series, music videos, commercials, and well over a hundred projects. Every project has its own set of challenges and obstacles but I have the experience and dedication needed to overcome them. And I specifically have experience with actors being dramatic and humorous, which is going to be an integral part of this project.
