About this project
What will you do when the next iPhone or Android update is an implant? What happens when the internet is in your HEAD? What does that mean for human consciousness? Deep stuff! It's questions like these that inspire us to finish our film "A City to Make Me," our sci-fi labor of love!
The march towards a TRANSHUMAN FUTURE will be the greatest existential question of the 21st century; or so we believe. A City to Make Me is a short-film with big ideas.
The best part about our project is that we're in post-production! The VFX are looking amazing and VODO.NET has agreed to distribute the short film upon completion. However, we need finishing funds to complete the short film and bring it to both online and festival audiences.
Every dollar raised through our campaign will be used to pay artists, both in North and South America, to print copies of the film for festivals, and pay for bare-bones travel expenses to promote the project and the IDEAS behind the film at festivals throughout the 2012 and 2013 season.
DONATE NOW through our KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN and bring this project to audiences around the world!
EVERY LITTLE BIT HELPS. We have a lot to raise in a short period of time. If you know others who dig cyber-punk, sci-fi, and edgier work, please share this page with them!
THE INCENTIVES are cascading. You get everything from the lower donor tiers when you donate to the project at a particular level.
