Home: The Movie is a sponsored project of Tribeca Flashpoint Academy

It's The End Of The World...

... and it's dangerous place.

The 10-minute short film Home chronicals two sister's struggle inside a mysterious, seemingly abandoned house. 

Who Are We?

We are a group of filmmakers based in Chicago, IL. This is our final project before graduation from Tribeca Flashpoint Media Arts Academy, and is a key part of our reels and portfolios. This movie could be the difference between us being filmmakers this summer... or bartenders.

Survival Supplies

The budget for our film is $5000. This is to cover-

  • Transportation (to Gary, Indiana, where the set is located)
  • Food
  • Generators
  • Props
  • Camera rentals
  • Film festival entry fees

If we don't reach the goal, the money will still be used in the most productive way possible. We just won't eat as much (or at all.) Actually, we'll just eat the PA's on set. Survival of the fittest, folks.

Here's a Cool Shirt You Could Get!


The Survivors

Anton Malovany//Director

He aggressively pursued the opportunity to make Home as he feels it will challenge him and is one of the most ambitious projects to date.

Tony Farah//Producer

Hoping to do short films, movie trailers or music videos, she is prepared to do anything to get where she wants to be. Molly hopes to make a memorable career out of what she loves and with whom she loves.

Emily Sleeva//Assistant Director

Some of her film credits through school include producer, production manager, and now production designer. She is super excited and honored to be working with such a talented group of people on Home.

Emily first developed her love for film production through her experience working at her high school's television station. Some of her film credits include writer, producer, director, cinematographer, editor and now gaffer.

He specializes in Post Production Audio which includes; Sound Design, SFX creation, SFX editing, Foley Recording, Foley Editing, ADR, Dialogue Editing and Recording, and Editing. He has more than a little experience in everything. If sound is involved, count him in.

Alyssa Venetucci//Social Media Coordinator


Alyssa suffers from a debilitating disease common amongst her generation which restricts the sufferer from putting down her phone at any time. This made her a perfect candidate for the social media coordinator position. She is focusing in post-production at Tribeca Flashpoint Media Arts Academy, and hopes Home will be a positive addition to her resume so she can get out of this cold city and out to Los Angeles. 

The Bechdel Test

During script revisions, Anton learned about the Bechdel Test. The Bechdel Test measures women's presence in movies on three criteria. 

(1) it has to have at least two women in it, who (2) who talk to each other, about (3) something besides a man.

It is SHOCKING how many movies don't meet the standards. We have decided to make Home with an all female cast, because our crew believes that females can be just as powerful in a role as males, and that this standard in the industry MUST be changed.
