Our new film THE STRANGE ONES, currently in post-production, will have its world premiere at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival! However, finishing the film and delivering it in time is a costly endeavor - and we need your help to make it happen!
THE STRANGE ONES is a short film about a man and a boy, traveling to an unknown destination, who sneak into a motel swimming pool for a brief respite. On the surface all seems normal, but nothing is what it seems to be...
While we can't give away much more than that, it is a film that deals with the nature of reality and unreality, truth and lies, and how a brief shift in perception can reveal something unimaginable just beneath the surface of what seems normal. We've been lucky enough to work with a remarkable team on the film, including our three fantastically talented lead actors, David Call (Tiny Furniture, Two Gates of Sleep), Merritt Wever (Nurse Jackie, Michael Clayton), and Tobias Campbell (Conviction, Salt).
WHAT WE NEED
The film has been shot and edited, and we are currently working through post-production in order to finish in time for our premiere at Sundance. However, we need some help raising the funds to pay for all of this post work!
We're trying to raise $3,500 for post-production expenses (the overall cost of finishing the film and premiering at Sundance, all things included, will be upwards of $8,000). This money is extremely crucial for the completion of the project, and will be used for:
Sound design/sound edit/sound mix
Creation of printed materials such as posters and press kits
Creation of DVDs
Creation and shipping of our exhibition print
The film is taking shape and our post-production team is amazing, we just need a bit of help to make it through this part of the process. So please, help us finish our film by making a donation! Aside from our undying gratitude, each backer who makes a donation will also receive an exclusive reward, provided we meet our goal. And if we don't - you lose nothing! Any additional funds we raise over our goal are extremely appreciated, and will be put to good use to help the film continue its festival run throughout the next year.
We'd be honored to have you be a part of this film - it is quite close to our hearts, and the entire thing would not have been possible if not for the generous support of so many people - for that we are eternally grateful. Thank you so much, we can't wait to share the film with you!
