WHAT is a Surf Noir?

SURF NOIR mixes the mystery intrigue and evocative sensibilities of a classic Noir with supernatural thrills and teen steam. Our goal is to reintroduce the original West Coast Cool. We want to bring back the beach.

If the mood reel above wasn't enough to get you going... We've decided to included a link to our INTERACTIVE SCRIPT at the bottom of this Kickstarter -- It's the first 12 pages of the very same draft we'll be using to make the movie (plus inspirational imagery and music). Go ahead... Read it!

This is our creepy-classic world of bad boys and the beautiful neon drenched sunsets... A land of dark sands where Santa Muerte keeps the surf youth young forever... A place where the good girls are never that good if you get close enough to kiss. Welcome to the SURF NOIR.

Please help us bring this world to life.

WHO is making this thing?

We call ourselves THE CASITAS GROUP -- An aggressive and ever-growing group of collaborators who work together and independently in film, TV, theater, music videos, and commercials. The last short film that flew under our banner was EXILES, which was named to 2013's VIEWFINDER LIST (Top 10 short films of the year).

Collaborating to make this project happen are:

  • TOMMY BERTELSEN
  • BRYCE MCGUIRE 
  • TROIAN BELLISARIO
  • PAT FLYNN
  • IGOR KROPOTOV
  • CHAD MURRAY
  • JOCELYN WEBBER
  • NEGIN SALMASI
  • BRADY FUJIKAWA

  • JOSHUA SCHELL
  • MAXWELL ORGELL
  • ANNIE JEWELL

Risks and challenges

This whole thing is a risk and challenge... We're mixing genres, performing motorcycle stunts, and tying the star of America's most talked about TV show to the side of a car with surfboard leashes -- then sending her barreling towards a cliff. I just hope nobody gets hurt.

Love,
Tommy
