The Perfect 46 is a film about a geneticist that creates a website that pairs individuals with their ideal genetic partner for children.

The Perfect 46 explores three interwoven stories about Jesse Darden, the CEO of The Perfect 46: the height of his company, his failing marriage, and the aftermath of both. 

The Perfect 46 strives to be as scientifically accurate as possible. With the collaboration of scientific consultants, our script has been crafted to demonstrate a respect for science.

Many science fiction films (and specifically films about genetics) fail to fully explore the genre. Some begin with an interesting idea that devolves into an excuse for mindless action sequences. Some feature evil clones. Fake computer UI's.

These films rarely pose interesting questions about science; they reduce science to a colorful backdrop for conventional plot formulas. The Perfect 46 hopes to inspire debates about science and our world, specifically the "what ifs?" of personal genetic testing, set in the very near future.

Films such as Primer, Another Earth, and Sound of My Voice have been models for our approach to microbudget science fiction filmmaking. Each of these films uses ideas as a way to enhance their modest budgets.

Through our exploration of ideas and innovative storytelling, we will continue examining the often neglected void of science in filmmaking.

The money we are raising will allow us to hire positions that are often left neglected on a micro-budget feature film. A proper Production Designer. A Costume Designer. 

Some of our funds will also be used in post-production for a professional sound mix and festival entries. As we come closer and closer to our funding goal, more opportunities will be afforded to us.

This is a film of the moment. We have an amazing opportunity to make something right on the cutting edge of what is possible in personal genetics. Please help us get the word out about our film. Visit www.theperfect46.com today.
