20 Minutes From The Actual Feature!



Do you love a psychological thriller? With a good plot twist that you didn't see coming? I grew up loving these types of movies; films filled with mystery, suspense and no easy answers: Memento, Jacob's Ladder, The Sixth Sense, Mulholland Drive, Rosemary's Baby, Psycho.
Our day to day lives are normal enough - movies are a place where it's fun to push the boundaries, test our imagination. We want movies to transport us, to challenge us, and most of all we love it when a movie can surprise us, when we can say, 'I didn't see that coming'. My favorite films are the ones where a week later I'm still thinking about them; I'll be doing laundry or cooking dinner and it will suddenly hit me, 'Oh! That's what that meant!'.

If you're reading this and can relate, then Cadence is a film for you. It's a love story that quickly darkens into classic thriller, but underneath it all is a complex psychological mystery that satisfies and demands for repeat viewing. I want to make a film with rewatch value, loaded with secrets and layers you didn't see before. Ultimately, I want to make a mystery thriller that's fresh!

Alex Lasheras - Writer & Director

Let us know which one you like best!


Cadence is taking care of her parent's farm while they're away on vacation. She invites her popstar boyfriend, Taylor Lake, to come stay with her; Taylor's just finished his first road tour with his band and invites his bandmates along to the farm, KC and JJ. Cadence can't stand KC and JJ, as their drunken games often lead to near death experiences. She bottles up her discomfort and anxieties for the boys which manifest into disturbing hallucinations and night terrors. The psychological disturbances become so real she's unable to distinguish them from reality, causing her to make some disastrous decisions. 


We've already shot and produced 20 minutes of the feature script for you to watch RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW at www.cadencethefilm.com This is meant to introduce the characters, story and mystery of Cadence, without giving away any surprises. We are planning to shoot the rest of the film this September, which is coming up super fast! This project has been entirely self funded up until now, but we need your help now more than ever to make it into a feature film. Every contribution you make will be put towards making the best movie possible, whether that's paying for equipment rentals, transporting people to set, or feeding our cast & crew a big hearty meal to get us through our long shooting days. We're farm raised, so nothing goes to waste. 

'Cadence' would cost $54,000 if were to be doing it all at once. We really are cutting all corners and pushing all buttons to make it happen. 

Why then crowdfund for just half of that–$27,000? Because 'Cadence' is a labour of love. We have been working at it for over a year and have spent all our contacts and some money at it. But after making a 20 minute demo that we are very proud of, this is as far as we can go. $27,000 would go towards the production of the film, (primarily labour, cast, food, and camera, etc.) and then begins the real work. Finding more help, partnerships, angels, etc. And shooting it! 

We are looking for an audience, and looking for partners in the adventure that is 'Cadence'. Ultimately, we believe in the crowdfunding mandate where audiences are the ones that make movies happen!

Simply, put we love making movies, and we wanna find those who love watching them. We wanna make this for you.
