"Worm" is the first feature film shot entirely on the GoPro Hero 2 camera.

About this project

"Worm" Teaser Trailer : http://vimeo.com/49201218

"Worm" is my third feature as a director.

My first film "The Mother of Invention" is currently on Netflix, Hulu, and iTunes. I co-directed that film with my best friend and frequent collaborator Joseph M. Petrick. 

My second film "Jimmy Tupper VS The Goatman of Bowie" premiered at The SXSW Film Festival in 2010. 

"Worm" is a project I am very passionate about, because it attempts to tell a filmic story in a very new way. The film was entirely shot using the GoPro Hero 2 camera, and the camera is mounted to a Snorricam throughout the entire film. Also, the film only has one edit (a seamless one) so that it appears to be one long take. 

I funded the production of the film myself, but I need your help on post-production. We need money to get a proper sound mix, a proper score written, and a proper color treatment completed. 

Please consider donating to "Worm" and help this film be completed in time for upcoming festival deadlines!

Thank you.

Risks and challenges

At this point, I think the highest areas of risk are behind us. Filming this feature - was insanely overwhelming. Doing a film where the actor is wearing the camera, and where the take is continuous - required SO much planning and attention to detail. It was insane to do on a shoestring budget - but because of a tireless crew and an amazing team of actors - we pulled it off.

At this point, we are looking at the post-production side of things. That is a much easier task to undertake than the actual shooting of "Worm" was. I have complete confidence that the post team lined up for this project will be able to tackle the project and see it through to completion.
