What is Iris?
Iris is an action/drama (with some comedy and sci-fi) about Carson and Charlotte. Charlotte is a sexy, clever thief, and Carson is a brilliant, determined engineer. They used to date... The relationship didn't end well.
Years later, Charlotte is hired to steal technology that was designed by Carson. What she doesn't know is that this technology is incredibly powerful, and it was never supposed to get out. So, despite the fact that they seemingly hate each other as she toys with him and he just barely tolerates her, they team up to steal back the technology.
What they don't know is exactly who stole the technology, and how incredibly dangerous they are; not to mention the fact that they stole this software for a reason.

Risks and challenges
There are many different risks and challenges that can arise while filming this movie! Can we find locations that fit the script perfectly? Will we be able to meet our time deadlines? Can we really make a film with $6000?
Let's start off by saying almost everyone on set has had experience in professional filmmaking (some have even had parts in making Hollywood films). We have all been working for years trying to get the best out of our craft, but what we know from those years is that while problems happen, there's always a solution.
Locations in Syracuse are hit or miss. Luckily, the script calls for common types of locations that are found in Syracuse, so it's mostly a matter of getting permission to film there. From our experience, Syracuse is very filmmaker friendly.
Time deadlines are mostly drafted by us just to make sure the film is going to be done as quickly as possible (yet still maintaining quality).
The big question: Can we really make a film with $6000?
We've been able to get most of the equipment, wardrobe, and makeup ourselves, and we've had plenty of experience working with no budget films. The $6000 will get us through the expenses that we can't work around, ie. food, paperwork, and extravagant props.
While we do know what we're doing, we also accept that fact that accidents happen and that things may not always go our way. But trust that we will do what's necessary to get through any problem.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
