About this project

"Pathological" is a suspenseful noir style short film that we are excited to make!!  Our current crew is ready to donate their time and money. We plan on going forward with the project regardless of this campaign. However, every $1 raised will go directly into the production.  Besides, the downloadable file is one heck of a deal!  

In 2013, filmmaker Dan Ross produced a book trailer video for Vincent's "Moonlight Falls". The trailer won second place in an Amazon Studios contest. Dan was eager to continue their collaboration and instantly fell in love with Vincent's "Pathological".

About PATHOLOGICAL:

"The story for Pathological came to me within days after my second divorce. My then wife's father had always been convinced that, as a sometimes broke writer, I just wanted to marry his daughter for her money and security." ~ Vincent Zandri, Author.  

To read Vincent Zandri's original short story on Amazon, please visit: http://www.amazon.com/Pathological-Digital-Short-Vincent-Zandri-ebook/dp/B003XIJ5CA "This could very well be an episode of the Twilight Zone, it was that good." ~ Review on Amazon.

Vincent is working closely with our production team to make the screenplay a perfect fit for video production.  The next goal is to attract a high-quality cast. We have to fill the spots of 3 main roles, a few supporting roles and extras.

The crew has agreed to donate their time and equipment for this film.  With the Kickstarter campaign, we hope to recruit a premium cast, feed our cast and crew, pay for music license and props.

Who we are:

WRITER - Vincent Zanndri - The New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of more than sixteen novels, including The Innocent, Godchild, The Remains, Moonlight Falls, and The Shroud Key. A freelance photojournalist and traveler, he is also the author of the blog The Vincent Zandri Vox. He resides in New York and Florence, Italy.

DIRECTOR/PRODUCER - Daniel Ross - As a graduate from Suny Albany in Theatre and Business, Dan works in the creative world of video production.  His portfolio includes short films, broadcast commercials, and After Effects animation. He can usually be found researching and implementing the latest industry trends & techniques … or starting a few of his own.  He has recently won Metroland’s Best Local Multimedia Artist and second place for Amazon Studios’ Cinematic Book Trailer.

DIRECTOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY/LIGHTING - Giovianni D’Abbiero - Gio’s passion for cinematography began when our “Living Color” world was delivered to rooftops in Black and White. Always a creative visionary, he continues to express his talents in everything he does. Thirty years of combined experience in Stage Lighting, Pyrotechnics, Set Design, Live Audio Engineering and Photography uniquely qualified him to start his video production company in 1995. When he is not looking through a lens or weaving video clips together at a computer, then he is inventing or building something from the blueprints in his head.

Where the money is going / Budget:

• Paying our cast for their time  
• Any insurance we need to obtain
• Feed our amazing cast/crew (we will be working 12-hour days!)
• Set design/props
• Film festival submission costs 

Join The Fun!

We have a "Killer" story, with plenty of behind the scenes updates and other crazy interactive things planned. It's NOIR or NEVER!!!

Risks and challenges

There are many risks and challenges in making a movie from a previously written short story, specifically a noir genre. Our PATHOLOGICAL crew is planning ahead to address all locations & lighting challenges. The author, Vince Zandri, is working closely with our production team to make the screenplay perfect to fit into a video production. We hope to please all of Vince’s fans while making a unique and quality production.
