Welcome to our little corner of the internet! Our project is The Skyship Chronicles (it's a working title - if you think of a better one after reading below, by all means e-mail it to us. We'll send you a nifty prize!), a steampunk-inspired short film that will be a prequel/teaser of the feature film we are planning for 2013.
Gustav, an evil scientist steals the inventions of a rival inventor. Victory turns to defeat as Gustav learns the inventions are useless without the power source, which the clever inventor has hidden.
30 years later, Adam, a young man from rural Kansas finds the power source while working at a post office. Upon opening the lead-lined box, two women appear from out of nowhere, and carry Adam off, just as Gustav's skyship appears.
After 30 years of hunting, Gustav is on the trail, and he will stop at nothing.
The script is (almost) finished, the crew is (generally) on board, the locations are (mostly) secured, we just need some funding, mostly to feed our actors, buy props, costumes and set construction pieces, and to rent a (very necessary) luxury yacht to use as a director's trailer.
Seriously, we will spend the money wisely. Actors love ramen noodles...and the yacht only has 8 bathrooms, not 12 like the one we originally looked at. See we're already thinking frugal.
Seriously, seriously. We will be in your debt to you, your family and your family's pet for all eternity. This crew has worked together on nearly a dozen short films, mostly zero budget and zero shoot time. With a budget and production schedule I am confident this will be our best film yet.
