About this project
Imagine the ability to understand societies flaws and fix our mistakes. What if a person could be born "perfect" and remain that way throughout life; a society of individuals working together for the greater good, happiness achieved through the success of those around you, and love filling the world with peace.
Picture a large facility of "habitats" where people are raised secluded from any outside influence. The goal: to determine the root of corruption and if people are, in fact, born flawless.
A man is raised his entire life knowing nothing of the outside world -- only of his existence in a desert environment. Dawn of Man is the story of that man studied through the one-way glass he lives behind. His only human contact is his own reflection. When a woman is introduced to the environment a series of tests are run to determine the values of the man. Will fear cause him to kill? Will hunger cause him to force the woman to starve? Will weakness drive the man to fall victim to the female? These questions, and many others, are what they intend on discovering, but the destiny of every human remains within ones own control.
By donating you are helping us to create this compelling story told without dialogue through the eyes of a man who has spent his entire life secluded from the world. We need financial support to build the set that the entire film takes place in. It is a 20'x30' enclosure painted with the mural of a desert on 3 out of 4 walls, sand covering the base, a small pond, and a palm tree. Your donations will also help to rent equipment, pay our talented cast, and our hard working crew. Take a look at the many levels of support you can offer. There are incredible rewards you will receive. We thank you for your excitement and support.

$10 - above plus... digital download of final movie.
$25 - above plus... DVD of the final movie.
