Set in the year 2037, PROTOGEN is an intense science fiction, thriller following a team of elite private military contractors on a hunt across Eastern Europe to eliminate two fugitives on the run from a totalitarian global government.
WHO WE ARE
Based in Glasgow, Scotland, ION Studios is a film production company currently producing shorts and features usually for general release. ION Studios also produces series for television and web. Our overarching goal is to help build a better future for the film industry here in Scotland.
WHAT WE ARE DOING
“PROTOGEN” is our latest short film production and so far we have managed to assemble an incredibly talented team of actors, fight choreographers, artists and musicians to help bring this grim, futuristic world to life.
ION Studios is extremely honoured to be teaming up with gurus George Johnston and Mandy Bhari from the 'Hybrid Academy of Martial Arts' to bring ProtoGen's gruelling fight sequences to life. We look forward to sharing more information about the 'Hybrid Stunt Fight Crew' over the coming weeks, giving you a taste of what's to come in the final film.
WHAT WE NEED
ION is looking to raise a budget of $8450 / £5000 approx which will allow us cover the following production costs:
If we can cover each of these areas the production values will go above and beyond our expectations, and help the process of making this short film run like clockwork.
WHAT YOU GET
In return for your incredible contributions you will all receive a special thanks in our credits and for those who want to donate that little bit extra you will receive digital downloads of the film and soundtrack, DVDs, Blu-rays, art cards, posters and much, much more!
For anyone who cannot contribute money you can help us out just as much by spreading the word. The more people we can make aware of this project the better and the bigger the audience, the more contributors we can find to help us raise the budget we need to make this short a reality. Please share our Facebook, Twitter, Vimeo, Youtube and IndieGoGo pages to reach as many people as possible, we appreciate all the help we can get.
If you are thinking about donating to the Project always keep in mind that you are not just contributing to ION Studios, you are helping us build towards a brighter future for filmmaking here in Scotland. If we can grow as an industry we can help create paid jobs for cast and crew on future productions and allow more, and more Scottish films to be show on the big screen. Every dollar we raise today can go towards making that dream come true.
