"Paradox" is a not-for-profit senior thesis film being produced at Montana State University. It tells the story of two college students who have unlocked the secret of time travel when a mysterious stranger appears to prevent the use of this destructive invention.
The protagonists, Alex & Gabe, are then chased through a dangerous scientific facility in an attempt to escape with their lives, and more importantly, a secret that can change the world. This dramatic chase culminates in a revelatory climax between Alex and the stranger: himself come back to stop the mistake he made so many years ago.
Paradox's primary crew is made up of:
Writer/Director - Colin Cashin
Producer – Stuart Deering
Director of Photography – John Sweeney
Production Designer - Jeff Dougherty
Sound Designer/Location Sound Mixer – Garrison Choitz
Editor – Max Mackin
What We Need
Our goal is to raise an additional $750.00. We think we can do it, but not without your support! Your donations will go to crucial portions of the production:
- Equipment rental costs (lenses, lights, etc), including transportation of equipment
- Actor transportation
- Production design costs
- FOOD! A well fed crew is a happy crew!
- Paying creative consultants to the project
- Post-production costs
Whether or not we reach our goal, the funds will go directly into creating the best film we possibly can.
This film is all about the freedom to choose and the prison of choice. We are, as humans, free to make decisions regardless of their outcomes. We can choose to make bad decisions but we must live with the consequences of our actions. We cannot change the past, no matter what. That is the core of the film, terrifying though it may be, we must never forget the finality of our lives.
Other Ways You Can Help
The most important thing you can do, whether or not you can contribute, is share! Whether it’s by emailing, calling, facebook, tweeting, or sharing any other way makes all the difference. The more people that are aware of the campaign, the closer we are to reaching our goal.
No contribution is too small! We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking time to contribute and share.
