Who We Are
Renée Fisher (B.A. Cinema/TV), Jonatas Da Silva (B.A Cinema/TV), and Eric Camacho (M.F.A. Producing) are fellow film students at Regent University in Virginia Beach, VA. They began their collaboration in the spring of 2012, with Jonatas joining them recently, and together they have never looked back. Their shared passion for storytelling and art has come to fruition in this final project that marks the end of Renée's time at Regent and the birth of her definitive voice in film.
What is Parables?
Parables is a non-narrative, stream of consciousness “film-opera.”
In other words, an experimental art film. Director-Writer, Renée Fisher, walks with the viewer into a reality where the sacred is alive and moving on our behalf. With the help of other art forms such as dance and music she presents the story of a young woman on her way from silence to passion, representing the journey of many others to find what they were made for.
Parables is not only a film, but also an invitation to experience the sacred, to search for meaning, and to discover an individual purpose behind life.
In order to bring Parables to life we need a community of support.
Our current needs are equal to $2700
- $650 for film reels and development
- $700 towards food for our cast and crew on a 4 day shoot
- $50 for dance choreography and travel fees
- $450 towards festival submissions (short film festival entry fees can range from $25-$100)
- $600 towards all incidental purchases (horse trailer, truck, and boat rental, gas, costume items, storyboarding, etc).
- $250 for distribution and supporter gifts (DVD's, posters, pictures, etc.)
All of our financial supporters will receive credit within the film, and your name (or company's name) will be seen by various attendees at film festivals worldwide. As your donations increase so does our return to you. Donors of $150 or more will receive an autographed copy of the film and movie poster. Also certain donors will gain exclusive access to behind-the-scenes photos and instant updates of the film's progress through the Parables website. This site will also allow for the streaming of live interviews and the daily making of videos. Donors who contribute at the highest levels will receive an Executive Producer credit, FULL access to the website, an autographed film and poster, plus cast and crew photos.
We are confident in the power of this film. We believe that this will not only satisfy our graduation requirements but also be a critical short film that will propel our careers in the film industry. We believe Parables is a film that can compete in festivals and WIN.
Parables is a visual representation of our struggle to find meaning and to be assured of our worth. We hope this film helps people in their search for their individual purpose in life, and raises a perspective that challenges the status quo.
What place does the sacred have in the postmodern age? What place does truth have in reality?
