My film will be a fantastical, psychological journey following the story of a girl who has the ability to view segments of an alternate plane of existence after a near-death experience. Water turns to blood, strange shadows crawl across the ground and it's almost impossible to distinguish day from night. She tries to function while the two worlds merge around her, and a charismatic demon that only she can see wants to convince her to make a full and permanent transition to 'the other side.'
My name is Darian Brenner and I'm a senior at Rhode Island School of Design studying film/video. I really want to make this movie for its deeper meaning--at the core, this project is about being forced to adapt to sudden and unfair changes. This past summer I lost my mom and my life has since been completely flipped upside-down. My goal in making this film is to have some catharsis dealing with my new situation and create something beautiful and compelling, that my mom would have liked and that anyone who has experienced any devastating change can relate to.
To check out some more of my major projects that I've created while at RISD, visit my vimeo channel.
The money that I raise on Kickstarter will go towards equipment/space rental, costume & prop materials, transportation for my actors and crew, permits, catering, harddrives, and other miscellaneous expenses, hopefully including having exotic animals on set (!!!)
If you are new to Kickstarter's system, it's important to know that if I don't reach my minimum goal before my deadline, I won't receive any of the funding and no one's credit cards will be charged. If I do reach my minimum goal (and I sure hope I do!!!) or even surpass it, still no one's cards will be charged until the deadline. So when you pledge money to my project, you are pledging that your card will be charged on my deadline given that I reach my minimum goal. I hope that makes sense!
Thank you all so much for supporting this project! I really can't wait to finish this film and share it with all of you.
