About this project

Locked is a feature length film shot in Dallas, TX. Our Goal is $20,199 and beyond. We appreciate your involvement in and support of independent filmmaking 

What's the story?

Locked is a psychological thriller that opens on a teenager volunteering at a psychiatric ward who learns from a troubled young patient of an abandoned lake house. Attempting to  impress his friends with a cool party house, he fails to mention the horrible history of the lake house. When they realize their predicament, they turn on him -- and each other. They confront each other -- and their worst fears.

Where will the funds go?

Every dollar you send us goes directly into production.  Whether it's equipment rental, location, feeding our cast and crew on the 20 day shoot or to keep the caffeine flowing during the editing process, it all goes towards completing the project.
