Hey there. My name is Tymon Brown, and I'm in my Junior year at the SUNY Purchase Film Conservatory. Right now, I'm raising funds to make my third-year thesis; a short film called "Bloomer".
"Bloomer" is a story about a boy named Sam and a woman named Nell. Sam's been living on his family's farm for too long - working the fields, taking care of his mute younger brother, tending to his overbearing father. His life isn't his own.
When Nell, a stranger in town, rolls into the neighborhood with car trouble, Sam offers to fix her car and let her stay at the family farm for the weekend.
They both think they've found what they've been missing in each other. Unfortunately, Sam's father isn't having any of it, and Sam is forced to make a choice between family and freedom.
Production on "Bloomer" will take place in upstate New York and central Virginia. The funding we're trying to raise will go straight to the maintenance of a functioning skeleton crew - equipment rentals, gas for production vehicles, feeding hungry actors, and paying for locations.
All of this adds up rather fast, but my production team and I have managed to squeeze the costs of production to a bare minimum while maintaining enough flexibility to make a great film.
Many wonderful people have already donated their time, resources, funds and even property locales to the production of "Bloomer", and we couldn't make this film without them. We're not quite there though, and that's why we need your help.
Risks and challenges
The risks inherent in the production of this film are primarily weather-related; due to the timeframe of the shoot (mid January) and the fact that a majority of the film takes place outside and at night, we'll be dealing with extremely harsh wintry conditions, which include:
Frozen swamplands (Virginia)
Dangerous Travel Conditions
Our production team is made up of a very skilled (and experienced) group of film professionals, all of whom are very familiar with handling the curveballs that Mother Nature can throw at a movie shoot.
I am confident that, despite the harsh conditions we'll be facing during production, that we will operate with safety and efficiency, and that the challenge will only add to the quality of the film in the end.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
