When the search for his missing wife takes him to a remote town, Michael finds himself in a living nightmare.

This is Where You Die

$6,500

Michael, a young professor of Modern Folklore, is searching for his missing wife, Clara. A private detective points him to an abandoned town called Fair Plains. Michael arrives, and chases visions of Clara while escaping monsters from urban legends, like the murderous Hookman and the nightmarish Expressionless, while the town itself seems to bend time and space, preventing his escape. After escaping the mad wrath of Bloody Mary herself, he finds himself ready to flee, he makes a horrifying discovery.

Who are we?

UTV Films is Northern Arizona University’s student-run film production studio. Beginning with the short film production of 'A Grim Tale' in Spring 2014, UTV Films began applying the Hollywood professional filmmaking model to student film production. Since then, UTV Films has produced four high quality student films and has even won awards at local film festivals. At UTV Films, students apply what they learn in the classroom to a hands on movie production process from writing to budgeting to scheduling to production and finally to distribution to the big screen and television. ‘This is Where You Die’ will be the result of a collaboration of all ninety students in UTV Films working together, each with a specifically assigned role, to create a short film that is of professional quality and can be submitted to film festivals, as well as included on their reel when they graduate.

UTV Films is the only opportunity at NAU for students to learn this kind of film production process hands on. The skills students will learn from participating in this production will make them much more marketable when they seek jobs in Hollywood.

What is our plan?

The UTV Films staff is already well into preproduction for ‘This is Where You Die’. The appointed UTV Films management staff is performing the production roles such as creating budgets and schedules using professional, industry-standard software, storyboarding scenes, and designing sets and costumes. The script for the film has undergone numerous revisions and is now polished and ready to shoot.

Production is scheduled to take place during the month of February and March.

Why we need you!

UTV Films is an educational organization, which subsists on funds raised through small fundraisers and class fees. In order to produce a top-notch film, we will need to purchase props, set dressings, costumes, and other equipment that we currently do not have the funds for. Our costs to complete the project are drastically reduced by the fact that our crew does not require compensation, since every student in UTV Films receives school credit for their work in the class.

A detailed, itemized budget for the film is available upon request (email Maeve Golden, executive producer, mg877@nau.edu), but here is an overview of where we will apply any funding we receive:

  • Props
  • Costumes
  • Set dressings
  • Location fees
  • Makeup
  • Camera and sound equipment
  • Meals for cast and crew on set
  • Marketing materials
  • Transportation

Risks and challenges

As with any film production of this scope and in this environment, it is inevitable that we will run into some small problems along the way. However, since this film is a class requirement, it will be completed regardless of any setbacks we encounter. We are dedicated to completing this film no matter what it takes and making it the best display of our combined talents that we possibly can.
