Our Story:

Normal is a feature-length horror film written by acclaimed playwright Lenny Schwartz and directed by multiple award-winning film director Richard Griffin.

Writer Schwartz and Director Griffin both create works that are highly imaginative and often anarchistic. Both were looking for a project that would give them a new creative experience, yet make use of a shared passion for their craft and interests. The project will be cast, filmed and edited almost completely in Rhode Island. 

 

The Impact

Scorpio Film Releasing, the production company behind Normal, has been making feature-length movies in Rhode Island for eight years now. In that time we have cast hundreds of actors... giving many of them their first shot at being in not only a "real" movie, but a movie that actually gets distributed (Eight of our features have received world-wide distribution!).

Helping fund Normal will continue giving many people their first shot at their dream of working in motion picture, not only cast members... but also the hard-working and dedicated crew.

What We Need & What You Get

We are currently looking at a complete budget (pre-production, production and post-production) of $5,000 The budget will go towards locations, costumes, set design, props, lighting and sound rental, cast and crew salaries, transportation fees and ... one of the most important things... craft services! Feeding twenty to thirty people three times a day for a 10 day shoot really adds up!


Thankfully, we own much of our own gear so that will help keep the costs down, plus... if we don't raise the complete 5 K from Indie-A-Go-Go... we have a few other sources of financing. One way or another, Normal will premiere before the end of 2013!
