The Venom Trail is a short doc that explores what happens inside the human body when someone is bitten by a rattlesnake and what the same venom is doing as it goes through the medical lab system on it's way to becoming antivenin.

We plan on showing not only the above mentioned process but also beautifully shot snake footage, a reenactment of a bite, and interviews with professionals including an ER Physician, a Herpetologist and a Snake Handler. We also plan  on showing how snakes are not the blood thirsty animals the public think they are and prove that snake bites are rare and a defensive mechanism, not an aggressive one!

The snake milking footage was shot in Lexington, KY at the Kentucky Reptile Zoo and the rest of the film will be shot in Austin, TX. The Austin Herpetological Society is advising us in the area.

NOTE FROM PRODUCER

I'd love your help on this project. I'm an MFA student and the film is a part of my studies. The money I'm asking for is for travel expenses and to help feed my crew.

Thank you,

Steve.

Risks and challenges

This film has been in the works since September 2012. So far, it has gone smoothly but when your shooting a film far from home, lots can happen. I'd like your financial backing to insure that if anything does go wild in production, the film will live on.

Through the pre production stage I have had the opportunity to deal with the Austin Herp. Society and they have been a tremendous help in acquiring the right people and will be safely and humanely handling animals for us once we are in Texas.
