Project Summary

Silent Retreat is Tricia Lee's first film.  In December 2011, she attended a 10-day silent meditation retreat.  Her writing partner Corey Brown told her "think of a thriller while you're there".  And when the kernel from Tricia's experience was fertilized with the creative juices from Corey's mind, so Silent Retreat was born. 

Logline:

In this quiet horror film, Janey is sent to a silent meditation retreat in the middle of the woods for rehabilitation, only to discover that the men who run it are brainwashing women to be quiet and submissive, and if she breaks the rules, she'll discover what lurks beyond the trees ...

Your contribution will help us share the theme of this movie with audiences around the world.  This isn't just a bloody, scary creature feature.  It's about women letting their voices be heard and standing up because they matter in this world.

We raised just enough money to finish shooting the movie.  It was a bare bones budget and everyone came out and worked (crazy long hours, over night, in the cold) for free.  We are looking to raise $30,000.

These are our steps to completion and what we will be using the money for...
