About

THE THIRD SUN IS A MODERN FAIRY TALE about a mechanic named Adam, who is struggling to care for his dying mother, in the ghettos of South Tucson. When he is faced with losing his mother to the State, he decides to rob a jewelry store for the money he needs to keep her with him. Enter Susana, a childhood friend who re-enters his life, bringing with her the ghosts from Adam's tragic past. As his robbery plans begin to crumble, so does his sanity, and Aztec legends of men turning into birds become his reality.

WHAT WE'RE ASKING FOR is the bare minimum we need to make this film happen. The entire cast and crew are donating their time. However, everyone still needs to eat, and FOOD IS EXPENSIVE, especially during ten hour shoot days and nights. We also have most of the people and equipment needed to shoot this film, but still need to rent lenses, lights, miscellaneous camera and grip equipment, plus get insurance for all these items. The bottom line is that we're making a million dollar movie for under $10,000.

WHO ARE WE? Burnt Crimson Productions is a small group of people who have been working together since film school. We have shot several shorts on both film and video together and have succeded in our individual fields of expertise. We promise you a film that will have you at the edge of your seat, and will deliver for both art-house and mainstream audiences.

DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT

 The Third Sun is a very personal film to me. It is a gritty urban drama about the harsh life that some of us are dealt. It is sometimes violent and unpredictable, sometimes beautiful and sweet, and often heart breaking and unfair. Above all The Third Sun is a fairy tale at heart. The idea that human beings can transform into animals to escape the worst of horrors is at the center of this film, and one idea that we offer emotionally as well as physically.

Technically, this is a simple film to shoot. The subject matter lends itself to mostly handheld camera, and naturalistic locations and lighting. Most effects will be done in camera and on location. The style of the film is something that we take pride in and work very hard to keep our own; though influences from directors such as Jean Luc Godard, Alejandro González Iñárritu, and David Lynch will be ever present in any work we do.

I humbly ask for your support. Give us a chance, and we promise to deliver a film that is profound and emotionally captivating.

FINALLY, THE CAST

We are so excited about our wonderfully talented cast that we wanted to make sure you knew them too.
