WE'VE REACHED TARGET... BUT EVERY EXTRA DOLLAR HELPS!
Thanks so much to everyone that has donated so far! Bringing us to target three days before deadline! To anyone who is still interested in contributing please do so as every extra dollar will help. The $5000 will cover the building of the set - but there are still extra expenses involved with actually shooting the film. Thanks again to everyone! We feel so priviledged to have such a wonderful network of supporters.
Trunk is an action thriller short film told from the perspective of a young woman trapped in the trunk of a speeding car. Although there will be 'book-end' scenes set outside the vehicle the vast majority of the film will take place within the trunk. It's like 'Buried' meets 'Duel' - a dark claustriphopic setting combined with the urgency and danger of a high speed chase - a combination that will create a unique visceral tension as our heroine attempts to escape her perilous death trap.
It's projects like this that make filmmaking fun!
Bringing Trunk to life is going to be a considerable challenge given that we are confined to telling our story in such a small space. We will be building three sets to bring the trunk to life - a "static" set with removable walls that will allow us to get the camera into almost any position, a "chase" set located in the real trunk of a modified car that will allow us to film the action in motion and a "crash" set which will be a fully rotating mockup of the trunk that will allow us to simulate the car rolling after an accident!
Where will the money go?
We will be using the $5000 raised to build and test these 3 sets in pre-production before we start shooting the film.
