"The Unusual...Charlie Christmas" is the story of a bullied, socially awkward janitor inspired to become a costumed vigilante.

About this project

Outsiders Productions has completed the three year process of filming and editing the feature-length movie, "The Unusual (Calling of) Charlie Christmas", and the project is now in need of color correction and post-production sound and scoring. We desperately require your help to do this and complete "Charlie".

The post-production sound alone will cost a minimum of $4,000 - this will make certain the fight scenes POP with crunches and kicks and that the alleyway scenes are clear and crisp. Professional sound quality is necessary for an independent film to find success in applying for film festivals and distribution; without high quality, professional audio, even the best of projects fall to the wayside.

The money raised will also go to scoring the film, no small feat considering the length and scope of the movie - from the gritty vigilante street fights, to the lonely shots of Charlie training, to the tender moments of connection between the lead character and his unrequited love. The score's importance is second to none in translating the emotional growth of Charlie and the excitement of his costumed battles.

Additionally, the money will go to color correction and stylization, to cleaning the video for "Charlie" and projecting the mood of the story. The project was shot in a range of lighting setups: moonlit rooftops, school gymnasiums, candlelit bedrooms, local fields and restaurants. All of these scenes need to be carefully manipulated and the colors amplified to better express Charlie's story.

With the money we raise, we will finish the audio and the video for the otherwise completed and entirely self-funded movie.

Any additional money obtained, should we surpass our goal on Kickstarter, will be used for marketing and promotion of the movie.
