Hamartia is a short narrative being shot in Cincinnati by a group of students from CCM Electronic Media.

Hamartia is a greek term for the "tragic flaw" that leads to the character's demise.  Stan Hixon's downfall is his lack of appreciation for the life he has been afforded.

Stan will be tempted by fate to finally notice what he takes for granted.  But, as the things he values the least begin to slip away, Stan will soon find himself fighting to hold onto his relationships, his sight, his smell, his taste, his touch, and his hearing, or in other words, the things he should value above all else.  Will he be able to overcome this test of fate? Will he be able to battle his negative karma and misperceptions, or will he fall prey to these seemingly unstoppable forces?

Hamartia is a project already in motion.  We are shooting with DSLR's and other quality equipment. Our Crew & Cast are among the best and brightest from CCM Peforming Arts & CCM Electronic Media.

The teaser above is actually a sampler for a scene in the Hamartia. We are going to employ a number of methods to convey the loss of the five senses. Our goal is to help the audience feel the extreme disorientation our main character is going through. 

Simply put, this short film will be extraordinary, unlike the typical films found anywhere else.

However, there are a few things we could really use to greatly enhance the quality of our film: sharper lenses, a sholder mount, and a follow focus. We plan on entering the final product in multiple film festivals across the nation, maybe some overseas, and with a little financial aid, the film will be an even greater success.

In order to do that we need YOUR help. Even if it is just a couple bucks, anything helps!

Thanks!

    IF you are INSANE enough to fund our entire project. The crew has certain things they are willing to give up for the greater good! Jeremy Heslup ( the director ) will personally take you on a HELICOPTER tour of CINCINNATI. Sean Fannin (audio) will legally change his name to "BJ HOUSHGONZALAS" (with a Z, thats right.) for no less than 6 weeks. Tim Kim (assistant producer) will let you cut his hair in anyway you wish, and keep it for no less than 2 weeks. Brian Schenk will provide an hour long life coach seminar within the area of CINCINNATI. RJ Hoendorf & Mary Bell (the producer) will provide an hour long love coach sitdown within the area of CINCINNATI. Zac Miller will take you to CINCINNATI's bars for one night of supreme company. This is not a joke, everyone is committed to doing these things and if in the extreme off chance YOU do decide to pledge $1000.00 we will create a viral video of all these events, just for you!
