Hello, my name is Tyler Young and I am the Creator, Writer, and Director of "DRAIN".
WHAT IS DRAIN?
Drain is a horror/love story about man who loses the love of his life and what the grief of his loss forces him to become.
The film is a twisted look at the traditional idea of the pursuit of happiness that every human aims to achieve in life. In reality the pursuit really isn't that hard of a goal to achieve. Owning a nice house, settling down with your loved one, starting a family and living peacefully is a pretty achievable goal in our times. But in this film, our protagonist Matthew is forced to go to the edge of insanity and must perform heinous act to regain his life
WHO IS WORKING ON IT?
Our Production Team –
Tyler Young (Writer, Producer, Director), Nathan Waters (Producer, Director), K.R. Brooks (Cinematographer) Kim Azana (Head of Makeup and Special Effects Department.), and Luke Tyrell (Head Sound Technician).
Together, we have molded "Drain" into a suspenseful, thrilling, emotional rollercoaster about lost love.
HOW MUCH DO YOU NEED, AND WHERE IS THE MONEY GOING?
We are trying to raise $3,000 for the film’s budget. (On top of what we have already contributed out of pocket.) The money will be used to rent equipment (Cameras, lenses, lights, sound, and editing), it will also go towards: props, transportation of actors, hotel stay, food to feed the cast and crew, Prints of the script and Script rights. Every dollar counts! NOTE: Every dollar that doesn't get spent on the budget will be recycled directly into future films.
WHAT WILL THE FILM BE USED FOR AFTER IT IS COMPLETED?
We are going to be sending films out to film festivals all over the country. We will also be showing the films at a few theaters around the Chicago area. The main goal for "DRAIN" is to use it as a calling card to financiers of future projects. (The more money we raise, the better QUALITY the film will be, and the more professional the film will come across as).
WHAT DO I GET FOR MY MONEY?
In return for your financial support of the film (Which is greatly appreciated) you will receive "PERKS". Depending on the size of your donation, qualifies you for different fantastic "Thank you" gifts! Donations can get you signed copies of the script and film, limited edition copies of the film and soundtrack, free VIP passes to the film premier, all the way up to an Executive Producer's credit for you or your business!
WHERE ARE YOU FILMING?

WHAT ARE SOME OTHER THINGS I CAN DO TO HELP THE PROJECT?
Another great way to the cause is to "Like" and "SHARE" the film's Facebook Page! ( https://www.facebook.com/DRAIN.film ) It would also help to not only Share the link on your Facebook, but if you could share the link on any social media sites (Twitter, Reddit, StumbleUpon, Google+, Linkedin, etc.) that you use on a regular basis! The internet is a tremendously large, FREE advertisement form of media! So please help us get the fundraiser page beyond the limits of our personal networking circle and into yours!
THAT'S ALL GREAT TO HEAR, BUT WHY SHOULD I DONATE TO THIS FILM
I'm sure you are asking yourself besides all the perks, what am I really donating to? Well honestly, as much as the money is helping us make the film, you have the opportunity to help this independent crew move closer to their dreams of becoming professional filmmakers. There are thousands of projects on this site alone that are asking for donations, but by donating to this film you are also supporting the Indie horror scene. In an age where technology is at our fingertips at all times of the day, anyone can make a film. The key factor in what succeeds and what doesn't is uality. And to achieve the level of quality that we believe will give the story justice, is to film it to the highest quality that we possibly can. In closing, I would just like to personally thank everyone for visiting the page, sharing the link, and donating!
