About this project

WHY I'M MAKING THE FILM:

It's my last semester in college, and this film is my final project (which is AWESOME, might I add). This isn't my first time around the block in the world of filmmaking, either. I've had my work featured in several film festivals already, the  most impressive of which I wrote, shot, edited and composited in a less than 24 hour timespan (and on a webcam, to boot: http://youtu.be/r2D-mFFquUQ.) However, THIS project will be my most ambitious and impressive piece to date, and between you and me, I'm going to love every second of it.

 You see, this idea is like an incredibly persistant itch. The more I scratch at it, the bigger the itch gets, until my entire train of thought is focused on it. I NEED to make this film. Not just so I can graduate or get a decent job, but because I've found myself enraptured with this idea, these characters; this story that's wormed its way into my head. Unfortunately, I'm unable to pay for everything myself without completely breaking the bank, which is where YOU come in. Please, help me bring my itch to the big screen.

WHAT THE MOVIE IS GOING TO BE ABOUT:

In this psychological thriller, freelance graphic designer Timothy Reit must sort fact from fiction as his nightmares begin to intrude upon his perceptions of reality. After being awoken by yet another nightmare in which he is shot and killed by an unknown assailant, Tim’s apartment is suddenly rocked by a massive earthquake. In an effort to make his way through the disaster to his girlfriend Jenny, however, he receives a terrible blow to the head. After the quake subsides, Tim begins to notice a change in his perception. Lapses of memory and waking nightmares are met with recurring tremors until he receives a call from Jenny, who is on her way home from class. As another earthquake rattles the apartment, Jenny's line goes suddenly dead with a scream and a crash. Frantic, Tim runs outside, where he discovers the grisly truth behind the workings of his unconscious mind.

    In the event that anyone pledges over $500, I may personally have to kiss their feet. At the very least I'll love you forever. But as far as material goods are concerned, everything PLUS a work of your choice delivered at a time of your choice after the month of June, within reasonable limits of my talent, funding and of course the laws of the state of California.
