About this project
Everyone that backs will get a special thanks credit in the film + IMDb credit. Thank you all for supporting our tremendous short film. On top of that, we will also add all or our backers names to the final poster. The journey has just begun!
This year, Earth undergoes a transformation...
Fox Rios, an alienated teenager learns a dark secret from a long time crush of his and soon begins to experience the paranormal. The world around him is beginning to literally fade away and he believes that beings not from this dimension are trying to take over him.
We are trying to raise funds for a short film/presentation pilot entitled, "Project Eden", which will cover production costs. Everybody involved in the film is either an emerging or professional crew member or actor, and everyone is contributing their skills and passion for little compensation so that we can focus on just covering costs for everything we need to shoot the film. Basically we want to pitch to studios and show them that we mean serious business.
WHERE IS THE MONEY GOING?
Camera Equipment Rentals (RED Mysterium-X - www.RED.com)
Wardrobe / Props
Food/Snacks, so everyone gets fed!
2013 Film Festival entry fees
And of course we would like to pay our CAST & CREW for their hard work and dedication to this project!
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE PROJECT
Project Eden is a very dark Suspense/Sci-Fi/Thriller written and directed by Vincent John Conti, and is based around an idea that has been in development for the past few years. The ultimate goal is to to develop the project into a feature film, but we're open to a mini series format for TV. In short, we are a group of people with a huge passion having for this project and are confident that with the right show reel that this short we provide, we can gain enough attention to turn it into a kickass feature that will be original, unique and unforgettable. The feature script is being polished now and actually forms part of a trilogy. We hope you can share our passion in Project Eden and help us make it happen. Read on...!
OUR TARGET SHOOT DATE IS APRIL 2012 IN LOS ANGELES, CA.
From space, a planet very similar to our own glows brightly. Yet not the blue and green of oceans and fields, but a vivid orange that signifies the sinister transformation Earth is undergoing. Humans watch in horror and disbelief as the world they know fades before their eyes and transforms into another dimension, spawning entities unknown to our kind...
In the midst of it all, Fox Rios, an alienated school-kid, is tailed by police as he attends the funeral of his long time crush Selene. The official line is that she hung herself and Fox knows why. Now it’s a race in time to prove his innocence and to unravel the secret that only he and Selene know, which threatens to extinguish not only mankind but our very dimension.
We are trying to introduce a different kind of alien that doesn't exactly invade the old fashioned way. ie space ships, laser beams, etc. We want to create an entity that is completely different than your average alien... Rather than giving to much away, we'd like to keep it a surprise. We hope it intrigues you enough to support our project.
