Selected The Short Film

A seemingly Utopian society has found a way to completely remove murder from the human experience. But, no system can completely rule out human nature.

Short Summary

- Four years ago, my brother and I started seriously making films. Last year, we won the NYIFF for best short film and won best screenplay and best director. This year, we are upping the bar and going for something much bigger. We are trying to not only enter our film into all the major film festivals, but we are going to try to win them! It has been a rough journey from the beginning but since then we have surrounded ourselves with a great team! So, for this film, we are putting everything we have into it, and so is everyone we are working with. We are just looking for the funding to pursue this dream!

- PLOT!!!!!

You are probably wondering the exact plot of the film. It is a Neo-noir crime mystery! Think L.A Confidential mixed with Minority Report! Exciting right?! It follows the lives of four different characters as they cope with this new, all-encompassing system that strives to completely eradicate murder from the human experience! Of course, corruption, murder and sex are all a part of this intricate and fun plot!

 

- This past summer we raised close to $4,000 to shoot a preliminary version of our short and we succeeded in creating what we wanted. But, it wasn't big enough so we have re-written and decided to re-shoot our film; this time with name actors and with the backing of the almighty SAG union behind us. All we are looking for is the funding to do so!


- This is something you need to be a part of. At the risk of sounding too full of ourselves we here at our film company Threshold Films equate this opportunity to having a chance to buy stock in Apple or Paramount when they first started out! This is that big, and these are our dreams. Not to just be an average small film company but to literally compete with the major studios and change the face of the film industry! This sounds like a huge task but it all starts right here with YOU!!!

 

What We Need & What You Get

What we need is $7,500. This will go into purchasing the insurance and to renting the equipment and paying the actors. Nothing more...Nothing Less!!

- $700 for the office of mayor's required $1,000,000 worth of limited liability insurance.
 
- $2,000 for the rental of the camera and all of the film equipment (We are getting this at a huge discount because of our partnership with a film company in lower Manhattan)
 
- $1,500 for the rental of 1940s cars that will be populating the streets of all of our exterior shots
 
- $500 for craft services
 
- $1,300 for the payment of the actors and crew
 
- $1,000 for the new software needed for the advanced CGI
 
- $500 to location rental
 
If it's possible, a surplus would allow us to purchase a more in-depth wardrobe, but we are shooting to raise the absolute neccesary amount to make the film.
 
If we do not reach our intended goal the money will still be put into the overall budget and we will continue to fundraise until we reach our intended goal
 
CHECK OUT THE PERKS WE ARE OFFERING ON THE RIGHT! WE ARE WILLING TO DO PRETTY MUCH ANYTHING (WITHIN REASON) TO GET YOU THE COOLEST PERKS AVAILABLE FOR YOUR CONTRIBUTION TO OUR FILM!!!
 
 

The Impact

Your contribution big or small will help us along the way to achieving our dream and create an amazing movie for all to enjoy!
 
Imagine having the chance to get in on the ground floor of Apple. Or knowing Steven Spielberg at the age of 18. Would you pass up an opportunity like that!?? We hope not and we hope to succeed in this way as well. We believe in modesty, but you need to understand the gravity of the situation here!
