There is nothing like returning home, as it remains unchanged, only to find ways in which you have profoundly altered.
PROJECT: moonless, a science fiction short-film, seeks finishing funds for a HD telecine, color grading and visual effects. moonless was filmed in early 2012 in San Francisco, on top Mt. Davidson. The story centers around a space traveler. The traveler and her companions are increasingly apprehensive about returning to Earth after a long exploration. The film mixes film formats - 16mm, medium format still photography, and archival images. We are currently editing to complete and submit to film festivals in July 2012. moonless is a film about returning home and how difficult it can be to fit in your old shoes.
moonless is the first film in a series of shorts about identity, specifically how one fits In This World. The In This World series is followed by space(d) (post production) and orbits (shooting in September 2012). All three films are self-contained although tied thematically. They also share the same day.

NEED: Okay so I admit it we went over budget. We raised $5000 on our own and like the filmmakers we are we went slightly over budget. (see chart)
The yellow area
- v/fx = $600
- color correction = $600
With your backing, $1300.00 will complete our final phase of post production and get moonless looking exactly like our dreams.
