Who Am I?
My name is Jordan Ray Allen. I am a writer-director with a passion for film. I spent severals years trying to get into the industry's doors, but learned it is harder than one might think. Determined not to fail, I jumped into film school and am now directing my own films alongside my producer-cinematographer Babette Siobhan. We have a great team behind us, but we need your help to make our latest short film 'Red handed' come to life.
'Red Handed' is a homage to the classic film noir genre: Black and white visuals, a leading lady with movie star looks, a charming yet menacing, mob boss, tommy guns and relentless detectives.
How Much Do We Need and What's In It For You?
Great question! We need to raise $3,000. These funds will help create the vintage look and feel by way of props, wardrobe, set dressing and other elements (batteries, walkies, location rentals, etc). Most importantly, film crews and casts tend to get cranky and demotivated when they aren't fed. Your donations will help keep everyone's bellies full and allow them to perform at their maximum potential for the duration of the shoot.
You Can Count On Us.
I stated in our campaign video "Before we are filmmakers, we are film-watchers". We stand by that. We want to see well done films just as bad as you. A wise person once said: "Be true to yourself and only make films that you would honestly watch." Me personally, i grew up on dialog and character driven films. 'Red Handed' is one of them. We believe in it and hope you will too!
