Startup pharmaceutical company Onados has struggled to make a name for itself. As a devastating parasitic disease begins to spread, Jessie O'Connor and Anne Bellvok, two scientists for the company, find themselves playing a game with disturbing moral consequences involving lies, deceit, life, and death.
Who We AreWe are a group of students from St. John Fisher College in Rochester, New York. Comm 431 is the highest level production class at our college, and is taught by Dr. Todd Sodano, a PH.D. from Syracuse University. We have now been working together for several months to create a film that would be debuted at the end of the spring semester. Through creative writing by a 5-person writing team, production by director Nick Millard and director of photography Patrick Harney, we believe we have the abilities and all the tools to make something that will impact not only our personal goals, but the view of our school's video production quality.
What We Need
Our budget is nothing extreme, and is very realistic. We plan to premiere our film on our campus in late April, and in order to have a proper premiere and shoot, we need funding.
-Proper equipment fit for locations we plan to shoot
-Necessary props and attire for individual scenes
-Incentives at premiere
-Food and Beverage to audience
-Posters and other miscellaneous needs for advertising the film to the student body
The ImpactThe impact this film will have will be something to talk about. It is the first attempt of its kind here at Fisher. Never before has a film been created, advertised, and premiered on campus like this. Once premiered it will set the bar for future production classes at Fisher and will also demonstrate the skills learned in these classes and how they directly translate to professional productions.
The Bottom Line
The simple fact is that we realize we are a small group, from a smaller school. However, we know that what we are creating is going to be something special, and that with the right funding and working our tails off, nothing is out of our reach.
So we have asked for support. A realistic goal of $500 that will directly impact the creation of this film. We hope to see our goal reached, but any support is better than no support.
