ANXIOUS OSWALD GREENE
Anxious Oswald Greene is a short live-action comedy adventure that centers around a man (Oswald Greene) who visits a deteriorating doctor’s office to find the cure for his crippling anxiety. In order to take back control of his life, he must put his trust in either a blind nurse, a talking fly, or a flamboyant doctor with a knack for rhyming. But who is friend and who is foe?
This campaign is in support of our dear friend Oswald, and it is our hope that by reaching our goal, we will be able to unveil his exceptional story and use your help to find him a cure once and for all. We're building this entire world from scratch: from sets, to VFX, to costumes and prosthetics, so we need your help to turn Oswald's unique journey into a reality!
Do you love the surreal films of Tim Burton, The Coen Brothers, or Terry Gilliam?
How about the comedy of Mel Brooks, Shel Silverstein, or Dr. Suess?
Are you a fan of Steampunk?
If any of these apply to you, or you just plain love a good old fashion comedy-adventure, this is a film for you! More than that, it’s a story that deals with a subject that affects so many people but rarely gets dealt with in such a fun and interesting way.
If that isn’t enough, we have an amazing team that consists of a group of the most passionate, talented and hard working folks we could have hoped to put together. We have an incredible track record making short films that have won top awards in festivals worldwide. We chose projects that challenge us creatively, but most of all, we are sticklers for good story and frankly would not be on board with this project if it was not something we really love. But we can only make it happen with your equal passion for the project!
Our goal is to raise $8,500 to complete the bigger (and most exciting) elements of our short. We have already raised $8,500 in cash and are receiving approximately $20,000 in kind services through the Hot Shot Shorts Sponsorship to cover the basics of insurance, food and logistics.
The money we are raising here is going purely into the creative end, including building three sets (An ELEVATOR from hell; the world’s most dismal WAITING ROOM; and the interactive and insane OFFICE OF DR. REVELSTEIN), filling those sets with amazing gadgets, sliding walls, and interactive furniture, all designed by our team. There are also period costumes and some facial prosthetics we are going to build.
In addition to that we have several VFX elements such as compositing and animating our Fly character, environmental effects to show you the outside world, and other little elements to bring the audience into the journey just that much more.
Acknowledging that projects gain momentum with support, we believe this project will go far. The initial $8500 will allow us to do the minimum of what we need, but in the event that we exceed our initial goal of $8,500 – we have plans for where the rest will go!
This includes helping to secure a well known voice actor for the character of the fly (you can even tell us who you would like to see!), enhancing visual effects to allow the VFX team to make sure everything is top notch, and then publicity and festivals to submit it as many places as we can to get all the exposure possible!
