Mara is a short film that explores corruption, betrayal and sacrifice in a dystopian society. Our protagonist, Dex must complete a job for Ava, a beautiful old flame, in order to escape the city. Our film will be loaded with dynamic fight scenes, stunning visual effects, stirring music, and strong male and female characters. We start principal photography in October 2013.
We have numerous expenses. Due to the genre and the look we're going to create, it will cost a pretty penny. We aim to create a different atmosphere. Imagine the 40's style in 2060.
The funds we raise will pay for costumes, makeup, set dressing, props, location fees, equipment rentals, and special effects. Our perks will allow you to a have a piece of the film with you, whether it be Tyler's score to create that epic car ride on the way to work or Bryan's graphic design work to place in your study.
This narrative short film is the senior project for many members of our team. It will be the crowning achievement for their last four years of hard work at Missouri State University. You can be assured we're pulling out all the stops to make this film exceptional!
By contributing, you could be supporting the career of the next David Fincher, Zac Snyder, or Guillermo Del Toro. You'll be able to say you knew us when.
