Creative Producer and writer of “Blame," Ram Goetz, wanted to shed light on a dark subject matter happening all too often in today’s world. Ram then turned to Nic Collins, a director who truly understands love and relationships, to help tell this untold story. "Blame” is a full-length feature independent film that delves into the world of abusive relationships.
The plot follows a bodybuilder, Robert, and his girlfriend, Kerri, as they clash and spar at every opportunity. It takes a controversial path less traveled, by portraying a female mentally and emotionally abusing a male.
As impeccable as Robert is when it comes to his physic and demeanor, his will becomes imprisoned and crippled when dealing with his passionate, tempered, and controlling lover, Kerri.
What We Need & What You Get
"Blame" will be filmed in January of 2013 for 25 days within the Chicago area. The production budget is $10,000. This budget may sound low for a feature film, but living in Chicago has provided a lot of resources and support from people to help make this project possible.
If the money is funded it will go towards insurance, food for the crew, transportation of crew/equipment, and locations. We have every intention to make this film. We need your help to do so. $10,000 is a low budget, but that low budget will still help us make a film that is of high standings. Making a film any lower will only harm the film's potiential.

Abusive relationships require everyone’s attention because this type of evil creates a ripple effect in society. One ends and another begins without there ever being a legitimate solution to the problem.
The easiest type of abusive relationship to spot is the physical type. Bruises, broken bones, cuts, and blood. Those involved sometimes make excuses to stay when they should be seeking help and support.
The most difficult type of abusive relationship to spot is the emotional and mental type. No one knows what’s going on and it takes a master of psychology to figure it out. Those involved also make excuses to stay in their relationship of despair when they know they deserve better and should be seeking help. These thoughts combined with life experiences are what inspired Ram and Nic want to take on this stirring and controversial film.
The filmmakers not only want to make this film because of their passion for filmmaking, but more importantly because of the storyline behind this film. This film is a message film. We want to bring awareness to abusive relationships by showing through this film what one can be like. Even if you don't support films, help support a cause to bring awareness to abusive realtionships.
