A telepathic terror group conducts systematic mental strikes against world leaders, but when one of their own is killed in a psychic counter-attack the cell's unity crumbles.
We're now fully funded! But we can still use your help! Every new pledge can help "The Pressure" be even better. Additional funds will help give us the creative flexibility we need to produce the best film we can possibly make.
With your added support we'll have more to invest in color correction, sound mixing and post FX. And in a movie this big: full of psychic attacks, fisticuffs, and lots and lots of blood, having a little flexibility can mean the difference between a good shot and a great shot. Help us keep spreading the word and we'll continue to labor toward making "The Pressure" the absolute best that it can be!
We love sci-fi. And in a world full of zombies, vampires, and superheroes, there's been less of the sci-fi that really gripped us. The grungy stuff that was both fun and felt like it could be in the real world. The sordid streets of Blade Runner. The John Carpenter synth scores. The paranoia of Invasion of the Body Snatchers (plenty of room in our hearts for both Kevin McCarthy and Donald Sutherland versions).
We want to bring it back to that realism and immediacy (that's not to say we don't love the new stuff too... holy crap did you see Cabin in the Woods?). Sci-fi is perfect for discussing big ideas in radical ways. It's also the best genre for screwing your eyeballs to a screen and freaking out as crazy stuff goes down. And our new project, The Pressure, is all about psychics, so you know you're going to get some great vein-popping, eyeball-straining, head-blowing mind-attacks. You'll find some plot detail a little further down the page.
Get on Board!
With your help we'll be able to make The Pressure the jaw-dropping short film we know it can be. Your contribution will go directly toward cortex-enhancers, circuit-boards, and the occult ritual where it all goes down. We're also big fans of old-fashioned movie violence, but we need your support to bring all the ear-bleeding, head-freaking and psychic warfare mayhem to the screen.
The Pressure is a labor of love for our team and has been self-financed through pre-production. Your contribution will go directly to the production and the post-production of this ambitious short.
Any level of support will go a long way towards making this project as strong as we know it can be.
As promised, here's a little more about our plot for The Pressure:
The Six live together, locked in a small, spartan space. Individually they are capable of minor psychic abilities, but their unified potential is unlimited. They link together in psychic ritual and target positions of power in the U.S. government. After a major success they find themselves under attack. One of their own is targeted and killed by an unknown intelligence organization. Now the five remaining are cut off, trapped, and quickly turning against each other.
