About this project
Biscayne Blues is an independent short film that will be shot in the streets of Biscayne Boulevard and the waters of Biscayne Bay.
In the story, the poet, Oscar Fuentes has fallen in love with the shadow of death, a raven haired beauty that lives in the emerald waters of Biscayne Bay, his Lady-death. The Poet enlists the help of his band, and in his classic ride, a 74 Dodge Dart, journeys to the underworld to face the succubus that has taken possession of his soul.
Before the poem became a song, Oscar Fuentes was inspired by the juxtaposition of the beauty of the boulevard and the blank stares of the street workers that gave the Boulevard its popularity. He was sensitive to the fact that the boulevard had become a place of refuge and rescue for those that had lost control, a place often invisible to the eyes of a world that didn't care.

The Funding: One of the things that excited us about funding through Kickstarter, is having a budget that allows us to pay the artists and film enthusiasts who are critical to the success of this project. The funding we gather will be put towards equipment rental, sets, costumes, props, and lighting equipment. Any extra money donated would go towards bigger and better production quality; including post-production costs like color correction and sound mastering.
