If you're here I imagine you may be aware of the SCP Foundation universe. If not, then I'll briefly explain the world that my short film will take place in.
The SCP foundation (Special Containment Procedures Foundation) is a global organization responsible for locating and containing individuals, entities, locations, and objects that violate natural law. Some entities are harmless, and some, world ending. They are each designated an SCP number, then cataloged with detailed instructions of their containment procedure.
The film will cover the aftermath of the containment breach of SCP-096, a humanoid creature that when its face is seen, becomes so violent and will stop at nothing until its viewer is decimated. As a result, no images of SCP-096s face can be allowed to leak, leading to its containment being of high importance. Early concept art of the creature below.
The film begins after its re-containment and the controversy inside the foundation surrounding the cause of the breach, shown through interviews and footage/photos taken from the recovery teams.
The look of the film is very important, below are some examples of the environment that our characters will exist in.
WHERE IT WILL BE RELEASED
The final film will be released to the public for free via my channel on youtube. However, by pledging to this project, you can receive content that the public won't have readily available such as behind the scenes photos and video, exlusive project updates, and other content.
This wouldn't be the first SCP film I've done, here's a short I recently did as a proof of concept.
My name is Klay Abele, I'm a full-time Cinematographer/VFX Artist for This Is Red Agency, an advertising house based in Pittsburgh, PA. My main work being commercial, I still crave cinematic narrative work when I get the opportunity to do so.
WHERE WILL THE MONEY GO?
Film-making can get expensive, so the pledged money will be well spent primarily on the making of SCP-096 The Short Film. The amount pledged will go to both Production and Post Production expenses. Here are a list of things you are helping with when you pledge money:
- Location costs
- Equipment rentals (lights, hazers, etc.)
- Camera + Lens package
- Hiring actors and crew
- Visual effects assets
- On set food
- Kickstarters Fee
- Funding Kickstarter rewards
Any Additional funds will go to post production sound and scoring, along with festival entries.
If you like what you see, please consider making a pledge and be a part of this amazing project. Keep checking back for updates as we will continue posting about the status.
Let's make this happen!

Risks and challenges
Every film runs the risk of complications during production, Actors get sick, locations become unavailable after being locked down. If such complications arise, as a filmmaker I'm responsible for making the story still work, whether it be re-writes or finding a new location, the show must go on.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
