A mockumentar about the adventuresome world of college mock trial competitions. Yes. It is an adventure. The vehicle? Bicycles.
After working on several projects, the four of us that make up the Sound Skript Entertainment family are ready to embark on our very own adventure with our first feature!
We have a stupendous script (thanks to the talented Nate Dern), all the equipment we need, and lots of gumption. What we don't have are key people to fill positions like Boom Operator, Script Supervisor, and Grips. We would also like to pay actors for their time on set. In Portland it seems many projects are totally fine with asking everyone to work for free, but we want to raise the bar of what is considered "normal" and are looking for partners (that's you) to help us.
Our $12,500 will go to production costs (props, wardrobe), paying crew, and making sure everyone has something to eat when they have filmed for 9 hours straight.
About the story:
Jane, inspired by Norma Rae wants to be the best lawyer she can be. Not doing well enough to get into law school she winds up in Professor Gavel's American Studies class at St. Edward Community College (home of the mighty pine cone). After inspiration (sort of) from her boyfriend Connor, Jane decides to boost her resume by starting St. Edwards very first mock trial team. With her boyfriends' mock trial team as her looming competition, does the St. Edwards team stand a chance?
We believe in the power of team and are looking to compile the right people to make this movie happen. We are open to answer any questions, just send us a message!
