I AM A GHOST (Post-Production)

Hi, everyone! I'm H.P. Mendoza and I just wrapped photography on my supernatural thriller, I AM A GHOST.  With a fantastic cast, the support of local businesses and my co-producer and partner, Mark Del Lima, it was self-funded and shot on a microbudget in San Francisco and I'm VERY happy with the footage I get to work with.  In trying to get the film into major festivals, I'll be expected to have a cut of the film in time to meet their submission deadlines.  On top of the actual editing, the film still needs color grading, visual effectsmusic productionADR and audio re-recording.  Any contribution you make will bring us that much closer to getting our baby into a festival.  

The teaser trailer, above, was put together specifically for this Kickstarter page.  Once we reach our goal and post-production is wrapped on the film, expect a longer, snazzier trailer.  Help us bring I AM A GHOST into existence!

I AM A GHOST: facebook / twitter / Google + / websitee-mail
Emily, a troubled woman, haunts her own house every day, wondering why she can't leave.  With the help of Sylvia, a clairvoyant hired to rid the house of spirits, Emily is forced into a "patient/therapist" relationship, uncovering mysteries about her past that may help her move on to "the next place".  Spooky, atmospheric and experimental, I AM A GHOST is H.P. Mendoza's second narrative feature.
