About this project

"All you need for a movie is a gun and a girl." - Jean Luc Goddard

THE STORY

A mixture of film-noir and 70's shlock we're describing as 'whitexploitation'. The main character is Morgan Gideon, a war veteran freelancing as a gun for hire on the streets of New York. Through her womanly ways she easily woos targets to seedy hotels and to their deaths.

THE PLOT

While out on a routine assassination, she finds herself on the wrong end of her own pistol. But it's actually her unquenchable sexual appetite and surfacing hidden past that weaken her guard. Feeling double crossed, her gangland employees unleash a barrage of vengeance. She will be easy to track. Just follow the fresh stench of corpses Morgan drops along the way.

THE SHOOT

Since this is a micro-budget film, what we can't accomplish with CGI explosions, we will surpass with sharp dialogue, creative twists, bone chilling tension, and the greatest backdrop in the world: New York City.

YOUR PLEDGE
We invite you to make this story come to life by contributing any amount you can. The cast and crew assembled are all professionals and veterans of film, theater, and television, who will make each dollar value ten times it's worth.

THE BUDGET
We'll be shooting for 18 days in New York City with 12 crew members. The cast will consist of 6 leading characters, 7 supporting, and 9 day players. Some cast/crew members have opted to defer their salary until the film becomes profitable.

SALARIES = 24,500
LOCATION = 4,500 (ex: transportation, petty cash)
CONTINGENCY = 3,500 (ex: legal fees, insurance)
EQUIPMENT  = 4,000 (ex: lights, camera, wardrobe)
MEALS = 2,500
PREP = 1,000 (ex: rehearsal, scripts, permits)
