MARK OF THE VEIL is the start of a story that's been with writer/director Brandon Freeman for 14 years. It's the story of a young man's destiny to become a powerful world figure. His quest to learn the truth of his origins. His strife when he realizes what those origins mean. His ultimate question, "Is this all I am? Is there nothing else?", which will resonate with an entire generation of movie viewers.
MARK OF THE VEIL is the start of a four part feature film series.
We've been blessed to find ourselves surrounded by over 30 cast and crew members excited to be part of the project. We've got the screenplay, the talent, the passion - all we need is your help to get to the finish line!
In March we shot the first 25 minutes of the film, the first act of the screenplay. It was a labor of love from all parties involved, and we did it just for you, so you could see, in depth, what this story is all about.
The first 25 minutes were shot in March with no budget - we taxed the director's credit card to get what we needed, and everybody went the extra mile to make the piece shine. We're extremely proud of it, but the story only gets bigger from here, and we can't do the rest of it on Brandon's credit card! It'll require community support, social media buzz, and pledges to this Kickstarter campaign.
The money we're raising here will have to stretch to meet all of our needs: cast and crew compensation (because people are IMPORTANT), production expenses and gear, craft services (because food is REALLY IMPORTANT), location expenses, vehicles (both on camera and for transportation), post-production (special effects, sound mastering) and film festival submissions/self-distribution expenses.
$50,000 honestly is the absolute bare minimum for what's required, so we're hoping to push past our goal, but even if all we get from this run is the bare minimum, a $50,000 success warrants a level of publicity that will push us into that much needed spotlight.
We're going to keep this campaign popping with fresh content, especially for those who can pledge $50 or more.
MARK OF THE VEIL is going to launch several very deserving folks into the public eye. How cool would it be to tell folks in ten years, when the last sequel to MARK OF THE VEIL wraps, "I was a part of the beginning"?
