About ADDLED

ELLE LATHAM-Producer/Writer/Director IMDb http://1tes4.tk

I am an up-and-coming writer/producer/director and I just started producing my own projects. I have just delved into filmmaking with my Los Angeles City College short films, Waves of Joy and Addled. Waves of Joy was mostly silent and it turned out to be stunning but lacking in feeling. I got my second chance with Addled which turned out to be the biggest thing I've ever done with a full cast of 12 actors and different locations and much more shot variety and fluidity. It was a real challenge but I tried my best to pull it off. It just didn't come out as high quality as I would have liked and I decided we should use what we shot as a roadmap for the movie we can all be proud of that will look and sound amazing and have awesome characters and guns and violence and drugs. Something entertaining and realistic.

Here's the logline:

A troubled young addict drowns in her bathtub, flashing back to the events leading up to her demise in this complex, confusing, and riveting tale of self-destruction, lust, betrayal, and redemption.

Put plainly, Addled is a movie I made in homage to Quentin Tarantino. It's set in a world where prescription pills are being sold on the black market. It has a little Reservoir Dogs (non-linear storytelling), a lot of Pulp Fiction (lots of interesting characters and chapters) and some of my own flavor as well. I admire Tarantino and I wanted to make a movie in the vein of his early work but with my own twist. The title is based on the non-linear way in which the film's story unfolds. When it ends, the puzzle will have all of its pieces in place, I assure you. It's a very intricate story.

If you like romance, drug dealing, violence, betrayal, sex, teamwork, comedy, depression, bunnies, or beautiful people making bad decisions, THIS MOVIE IS FOR YOU!

With this extra money added to the budget, we will be able to make the movie myself and the entire cast who put so much hard work into making it, always wanted it to be. And who knows? We could end up screening it at Sundance, Cannes, or Tribeca or any other awesome film festival you can think of. We believe in quality and we want to provide a fully-realized and well-made film to the masses.

Now, all we need is YOUR HELP to get us where we need to be. We are counting on YOU.

So that you know what I've done in the past, here are some links to my most recent work.

"What Do I Get Out of The Deal?"-YOU

You get the good feeling from giving us the funds we can use to pay our cast and crew, get good locations, feed our cast and crew, pay for props, pay music copyrights for our awesome soundtrack and give our generous donors PERKS!!!!! 

Perks that range from a personal Thank You note from yours truly to a SPEAKING ROLE in the film!!! Check 'em out! They're over there.>>>>>

We've done everything we can to make this a reality. We just need your help as a push to put the finishing touches on our awesome movie.

The Nitty Gritty

If we do raise $9,000, we can do so much cool stuff in this movie. We can have guns, we can have way better sound, we can have really good locations, we can build a world for our characters to interact in. We can do more stuff with the visuals and make it look the way it was meant to look. We can kill off characters, which I really want to do. They're just asking for it. We can make the whole thing look real and it'll be much more effective.

Also, because this is a staunchly anti-drug movie, we will donate 10% of the contributions we are able to receive from you to the Narcotics Overdose Prevention and Education (NOPE) Task Force. It is a non-profit organization that aims to prevent drug overdoses and the deaths resulting from them by spreading awareness through community outreach. Which is also what we intend to do with this movie albeit in an entertaining yet brutally honest way.

Here is a link to their website.
