Relax is about the desperation of feeling unheard or dismissed. The film explores how these feelings, now overwhelming in our political lives, can cause out-of-control situations in which everyone loses.

COLLABORATION IS KEY

Relax will be the fourth film that Director of Photography, Tom Digges, will have shot alongside writer/director Matthew Herbertz. Their veteran experience and intense creative connection is vital to the success of the look, feel, and emotion of this film.

WE NEED YOUR HELP

We hit our initial goal, but there is still more to do!

If you can't donate, gives us a share on Facebook or send it to a friend who might be interested in helping this Indiana Production.

WHAT WE'VE DONE

There's tons to do when making a movie, but we are on track to shoot June 9th - 11th. We can't wait to update you as things develop! 

Risks and challenges

Film productions are the king of Murphy's Law. With any production everything that "can go wrong, will go wrong". All we can do is prepare as much as we can during preproduction.

Weather: Shooting outside in June, there could be rain. We've scheduled a contingency day just in case!

Equipment: We are working with very fragile and expensive equipment. Not everything we have is fail safe. We expect some production delays to occur due to technical difficulties.

Cast: There always is a chance a better opportunity comes along to one of our cast members. But, we make it known that we expect full commitment and dedication to the production.
