Man wakes up in an apocalyptic world with amnesia and searches for the love of his life despite being pursued by a ruthless army...

"Hope Still Lives"

AMNESIA isn't a film but a TV show described by the Slamdance Scriptwriting contest as "very fast paced... reader could barely catch their breath".   The main character, Allan Carter, is driven to find the clues to what's going on while struggling to stay one step ahead of an army bent on killing him.  It's part thriller, part action, part mystery, part drama, with a great love story that spans every episode.    You can read the first 10 pages of the pilot here.

Starring Andrew Roth, Christina Rose and Erika Hoveland.

Supporting cast is: Julie Kendall, John Thomassen, Amy Hoerler, Keri Maletto, Torry Martin, Didrick Davis, Jennie Kahn-Jacques, Annette Figuerroa, Carlacia Grant, Alan Heyman, Donnie Kent, Thomas Falborn, Mario Temes, Kathy Sandvoss, and Janet Carabelli.  (for more detail on each actor scroll towards the bottom)

For Allan Carter, he is driven by one constant theme, Hope Still Lives! Our writer/director came up with this concept and theme 4 months after 9/11. Just when things are the bleakest there is always the possibility, the hope, of something better. Most apocalyptic TV shows have a tendency to be bleak and have a lack of hope.  Even if zombies are trying to kill you, shouldn't there still be a presence of hope?

BRINGING ALLAN CARTER TO LIFE

The key to selling the believability of  the AMNESIA TV show was finding the right actor who could sell the emotional struggle and challenges of Allan Carter.    We picked Andrew Roth to helm the lead of Allan because of his diverse acting experience, his on screen presence and the fact that he looked exactly the way the producers had envisioned.

OUR PLAN

Most of the time a producer will attempt to shoot the TV pilot and then pitch it to the networks.  Why just make a first episode of AMNESIA and hope someone funds the rest....  We're going after the entire 6 episodes of the first season!

What we're doing right now is raising the funds for Phase I of AMNESIA  (the high concept Big Event scene and scenes that accompany it).    Phase I is the most challenging and pivotal part of the production and will be used throughout the entire season.  This phase is key in drawing in more interest for the project in the long term.

The best part is the producer has already done it before! He shot a demo of the big accident scene with an extremely tight budget which proves that with the kickstarter goal reached for Phase I he can take it to a new level of quality!  Watch the demo here.

With the entire 6 episodes of AMNESIA completed, we will have a much stronger position when pitching it to the networks.  If for some reason the networks pass, we'll look into online options and get the episodes to our fans.  Either way you will see the AMNESIA TV show.

WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU?

But why just back a project when you can also join us on the journey...  One of our best rewards is to get those cool behind-the-scenes videos that we'll post once a week after the shooting of Phase I is concluded.  We're calling it the AMNESIA CAM.- This way you're on the journey with us almost like watching episodes of a reality TV show.

There are more interactive rewards like the Easter Egg Hunt where your name is hidden throughout the Big Event timeline for people to search for.  Or what about a chance to own some memorabilia like Allan Carter's costume, or the director's notebook or original storyboards after production is completed.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

There is always the possibility of unforeseen issues, but the best thing about Phase I of AMNESIA is that the producer has already proven his ability to get it done! Not only has he produced the highly acclaimed The House That Jack Broke, which appeared in 4 cities across Michigan, but he has also shot a demo of the big accident scene with an extremely limited budget, which proves that with the kickstarter goal reached for Phase I, he'll be able to take things to a new level!

Also, every person who supports AMNESIA through this kickstarter campaign is helping to generate interest in the entire project which will help us complete the remaining two phases.
