A fantasy action film about four defiant women chosen to become the legendary Valkyrie in order to save humanity from an alien race.
We're raising funds for our feature film Falcyyr, which we plan to begin shooting in March of 2012. Falcyyr is the years-long dream of writer/director Ahura Z. Diliiza which we decided, with the help of this Kickstarter campaign, was finally ready to be made.
It is always difficult to gather money for artistic pursuits, especially when you have big dreams, big talent and a small wallet! We were excited to find kickstarter and encouraged by the fact that so many other people with similarly creative ideas were able to get the funding they needed to bring their projects to life. As the world’s largest funding platform for creative projects we felt Kickstarter was a good fit for us. Not only does Kickstarter expose our project to the already extensive member base, but with its’ all-or-nothing funding approach it allows contributors to test concepts with no risks.
Ahura Z's first film, Anikruya, was made completely out-of-pocket, filmed on the weekends with actors who donated their time to the project and written, directed, edited and with special effects by him. Falcyyr is a much bigger project that needs to have an epic feel. We want to be able to meet our vision for this project rather than just relying upon what our personal finances dictate we can do. While we WILL complete this project with or without the funding we are requesting, receiving those funds will make Falcyyr as big as we know it can be!
Fate shall give them wings and the Gods shall give them power.
Four women are chosen by the Fates at the request of Odin (the Great All-Father of the Nordic gods) to be trained, empowered and transformed into legendary beings known as Valkyrie. These four women are chosen from different time periods and backgrounds as the gods are not limited by time and space. Each of them are plucked moments before the time of their demise and given a choice to serve Asgard and therefore the world of Earth, or be placed back within the grasp of oblivion. Once transformed they will save the earth from an aggressive alien race that views humanity as a source of food.
Costuming, props, lighting, press materials, scouting & securing ideal shooting locations, equipment rental, cyclomen wall (green screening) rental, and care and feeding of cast and crew.
The $20,000 goal we have set as a minimum of what it will take to make Falcyyr. If we are fortunate to exceed our goal that only means that we will be able to make Falcyyr that much more impressive on the big screen!
