Hi, all!

I'm one of the many aspiring directors on this site who are looking for backers for their upcoming short films. While my project may be one of the many, the things I wish to achieve through this film are distinct. This story is about an eight-year-old boy named Rom who has to retrieve his house key from a scary butcher in his neighborhood. Through the obstacles and people he faces throughout the day, Rom learns to cope with fear and anxiety brought about by an overly active adolescent imagination. Although I am very eager to take the next step in filming this project, this could only happen if you become my backer. I have already assembled an experienced, dependable film crew for the shoot who are willing to work gratis.

Crew:Director- Sung Cho. I am an aspiring director currently majoring in Film Production at CUNY Brooklyn College. I have worked professionally in several film production companies as an Assistant Director, Storyboard Artist, Editor, and Animator. Additionally, I've been involved in numerous student film productions as director, gaffer, grip, and special effects artist. I invite you to help me realize my creative vision for this project along with my crew and make this film a success.Director of Photography- Rachel Adkins Rachel is a recent Brooklyn College film graduate with a wealth of experience as an Assistant Cameraperson and Director of Photography in both student and independent film productions. Recently, Rachel and I collaborated on a Korean feature-length film which will be released in South Korea this coming fall. She was credited as the second unit DP and I was the second unit director.

We are currently in pre-production for this project: casting, location hunting, and rehearsing. We are headed towards the production stage, where we need your support in renting film equipment. I aim to submit this film into various film festivals around the world, and hope to make you the supporter of an award-winning short film.
