Short Summary

 This Sci-Fi/Drama story takes place in 1993 around a time when technology and communication were completely different and outdoor hobbies were at an all time high. Our young male protagonist, faces many obstacles such as love, money, and fear.

He must also contend with the hazards brought on by gambling and nanotechnology.  The peer pressure of greed has seduced the boy's mind and he must help his friend escape a debt with the antagonist, Tigerman, a hotshot football player. With murders afoot and suspicious characters around, an unsettling era is soon to emerge.

What We Need & What You Get

*As the indiegogo comes to a finish we want all the backers to know we've have all the equipment, cast and crew to make this production a possibility. With the funding we have received will all go towards filming and post production will be out of pocket funds. *

The first thing to make a quality film is working with your limitations. Curious is a project that I have been working tirelessly for years to make a reality. I have taken a $40,000-$50,000 film and broke it down in $15,,000. We, the production company, will have displayed below a breakdown of the budget as a pie graph. I have acquired all permits on interior locations and permits for the exterior locations will be finalized by the end of the campaign, along with perks for the backers. Transportation and catering have also been accounted for. Sand in Pockets Productions has already ran casting, we have all of the talent early, and are running rehearsals while our campaign is en route.


As the indiegogo comes to a finish we want all the backers to know we've have all the equipment, cast and crew to make this production a possibility. With the funding we have received will all go towards filming and post production will be out of pocket funds.


We've managed to round up a lot of resources on our own, but we still need funds to pay cast and crew, rent equipment, buy and build props, and other resources shown in the graph above. Every single dollar counts and will help us a great deal.

The Impact

  • Curious is significant because it shines a light on how much we've lost touch with almost every aspect in communication to the point where we ignore the real problems.
  • I have been writing screenplays for 8 1/2 years & have recently gained the confidence to gather the necessary resources to create Sand in Pockets Productions, which is a family collaborative effort between two brothers.
  • I want to create a film that has a moral for the youth that explains how much we are dependent on a device for social acceptance. Something that would show how much we care about each other. Curious is a film that maintains the underlying message of not needing a device to socialize and to connect with our world to see what is really going on before it is too late.
