GEEKS / The Film
'GEEKS' takes place in the sun-bleached environments of Southern California.
It introduces us to four nerdy girls who are the best of friends but hold onto a deadly secret - They are Bounty Hunters. When they discover that an old enemy has been let out of prison, their lives are thrown into an adrenaline-fueled race to reach their buried past first and nothing can stand in their way.
But this is no game. And revenge is coming.

GEEKS / Crowd-Funded
No matter what, we are shooting the Pilot of ‘GEEKS’. So why are we asking for crowd-funding? Because although passion, drive, hard-work and creative solutions can go a long way to making a film project something special - it’s the ability to access a larger budget that allows us to actually create the show as it deserves to be made and the one that you deserve to see.
The money raised will be used to amplify the quality exponentially, securing more advanced equipment allowing for originally intended shots otherwise impossible, helping with soundtrack licensing, more striking and versatile locations, an extended team to help bring the storyboards to life on screen through more detailed production design, a higher grade of post-production including such crucial elements as foley, sound design, sound mixing and colour grade.
In short, we know we can make something special, but with your help ‘GEEKS’ can become something truly extraordinary and that will stand a far higher chance of being able to live on as a series.
Please, support our independent team and incredibly talented cast. Help make our dedication, passion and efforts truly worthwhile.
