Making short films is not an easy task, nor is it cheap. We have an incredibly talented & hard working team of filmmakers, production designers, special effects & makeup artists all working together to ensure that this script is brought to life on screen the way it was meant to be. But without funding, things can prove pretty difficult.
Eddie Holecko, our special effects & makeup artist, has the task of creating living, breathing monsters on screen. You can imagine that special makeup and prosthetics are not cheap, but if you want to do it right then there is only one way.
Heath Daniel, Carolyn Shannon, and an extensive art department are all working together to renovate my house into a brothel from the 1990s that will be present for over 75% of the film. We really want this brothel to feel as genuine and believable as possible, as if you can smell the cigarette smoke and the dirty shag carpets. This however requires many props, wallpaper, lamps, etc that all add up in costs.
Jeremy Peele, our cinematographer, is in charge of camera and lighting for the film. SCAD does not have all of the heavy duty lights and specific gel colors that are needed for the film to have the correct & intended look that we are going for, so part of our funding will be delegated to this department as well.
Lastly, everybody has to eat right? Feeding a cast & crew of over 20 people is not simple, but is so necessary. Being on set, working the long hours, creating films, it's what we're all here for, but we all need energy to do it.
Why invest in this project? Our team is committed to making a film that will both entertain & engage you, but also a film with substance that will hopefully linger with you after viewing. Making films is not easy or cheap, especially good ones. Please help us turn this script into the living, breathing, vision it was meant to be.
Risks and challenges
This is a short film involving many special effects & hard work, and like I had said before, short films are not easy to make. But I had also mentioned that our team is committed. Whatever we may encounter, it will be conquered. We set out to make this film and that is exactly what we are going to do until it is the final product that we have all been striving for from the very beginning.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
