WHAT IS OFF SEASON ?
Off Season is a feature-length horror-noir thriller set on the windswept East coast during the dead of winter. Sylvie Stone takes refuge in an isolated beach hideaway after her husband is convicted of a sweeping act of financial fraud. Villainized in the press, and afraid to venture out into public, Sylvie savors the isolation, until a series of frightening occurrences lead her to discover she's being stalked by a mysterious presence. Soon each night alone is filled with terrors, and Sylvie seeks out romantic distraction with a local surfer. Uncertain of her own sanity, and faced with a terrifying ultimatum, Sylvie is forced to confront the secrets of her past, or take them with her to the grave.
HOW IT WORKS
Kickstarter.com is an amazing website that allows independent artists, be they musicians, writers or filmmakers like us, to seek out funding from a generous online community interested in supporting true independent art.
Our goal is to raise 4500 dollars and we have 30 days to do it. Kickstarter functions in a unique funding method where projects must be fully-funded or no money is exchanged -- so it's all-or-nothing!!
Your contribution will go towards production essentials like food, transportation and equipment - and also towards the details that will bring the film to life, like wardrobe, set design, and makeup effects.
We've already assembled a great cast, a killer crew and an awesome seaside location. The script is our strongest and scariest yet. But we can't do it alone!
Any support you can offer will be immensely appreciated!!
Cold Hands Productions was established in 2009 by Katie Carman and Elizabeth Lee. Dedicated to proving that quality guerrilla film making is not a contradiction in terms, Cold Hand's first feature film, Eat Me!, a stoner zombie comedy, was produced on a shoestring budget and went on to screen at festivals like the New Filmmaker NY series and the Long Island International Film Expo. Eat Me! has also been picked up for international distribution in Japan. Cold Hands hopes to go even further with OFF SEASON, though right now, we are entirely focused on using all our talents and resources to make a great film.
KATIE CARMAN - Director/Producer/Editor
Please see attached Kickstarter profile.
ELIZABETH LEE - Actress/Screenwriter/Producer
As an actress, Liz has played characters on the fringe, from an obsessive compulsive undercover cop, to a heartless hit woman, to a rock band drummer turned zombie slayer. Her screenplays tend to explore the macabre and supernatural through the spectrum of strong, unusual characters. Liz's second screenplay, The Cabinet, a re-imagining of the 1920's classic The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, which was developed with Katie as a future Cold Hands feature film project, was recognized as a semi-finalist in last years Ultimate Filmmaker Competition. She can't wait to begin production on OFF SEASON.
EDDIE LEBRON- Director of Photography
Cold Hands Productions is thrilled to announce that Eddie Lebron will be Director of Photography for OFF SEASON. Eddie previously worked with Cold Hands as DP for Eat Me! and also shot a celebrated short film, Filmmonster, with the team for use in the Ultimate Filmmaker Competition. Eddie is also known for his work as the director of the MegaMan film. Released online by ScrewAttack earlier this year, the film has already been viewed almost 400,000 times.
