Your continued generosity has pushed our film to a new technical level. With these extra and unexpected funds, we are purchasing a Cannon 5D mark III camera. This is a full frame HD camera and the image will knock your socks off. I can't wait to get started. Thank you. :)
We have reached our goal in just 5 short days. Thank you so much to our wonderful supporters. This is amazing! I would like to think it was because of Lime Street Entertainment or me, WRITER/DIRECTOR/PRODUCER Steven Vasquez! But lets face it. We all know who the real star is! And with your contributions we will make Sean's directorial debut as excellent as possible. At least it will be well lit! And for those of you who know my work, you know it will be damn sexy too!
I hope that you'll be encouraged by a comment made from a wonderful supporter of our last film LUNA PARK. He said it was the first time he received his perks and the only film he supported, thus far, that was completed! So rest assured you will be receiving everything promised. (even our 4 dollar contributor will get something. That's awesome!)
What about those who would still like to be a part of this project? Where will the extra money go? Starts with a V and ends with an S.....Vegas bitches! Haha, I couldn't resist. Rest assured that every dollar will be spent on this production! My taxes are paid and rent accounted for! If we continue to receive contributions we will put toward the purchase of a new or used camera body, prime lens and rigging. Also spare bulbs, scrims and even electrical cords which all add up.
LAST BUT NOT LEAST.
Let me welcome our new Producer. His recent contribution took us over the top!
Speaking for him and Ward, Sean and Myself. A great big Thank you!
In the immortal words of Joe Gideon.... It's showtime folks!
What is TRIPLE CROSSED ?
Like our last feature LUNA PARK, TRIPLE CROSSED can best be described as a mature LGBT erotic drama. And while artistic in nature, Triple Crossed will go beyond Luna Park in terms of its gay sensuality with a thrilling story to boot.
Triple Crossed will also mark the directorial debut of SEAN PAUL LOCKHART who also stars.
Produced by Ward Bodner and Steven Vasquez
Photographed and Edited by Steven Vasquez
Written by Linda Andersson
Original Music by Chad Siwik
PROMO VIDEO WITH SEAN COMING SOON!
Also a video of our audition process.
WHAT'S SO DAMN SPECIAL ABOUT OUR FILM?
….except for the fact that it WILL get made and be SEEN and ALL contributors will receive their well earned perks! (give or take a couple weeks!) Our last film LUNA PARK landed a distributor shortly after our first Indiegogo campaign. With the profits of that film we are making Triple Crossed and are striving to be self sufficient with our next project ANGELS WITH TETHERED WINGS. In other words we would like our second indiegogo to be our last. And then the next time we log on, it will be in support of other worthy films.
A man is out to kill a person he swore on his best friend's death bed to protect. CHRIS JENSEN is torn between his allegiance to his fallen friend, TYLER TOWNSEND, who died in Afghanistan and Tyler's half sister who hires Chris to kill her late brother's gay lover. The lover, ANDREW WARNER, stands to inherit half of the families multi- million dollar company left to him by Tyler. Tyler's half sister JACKIE TONWSEND has other plans for the young and unassuming Andrew. All goes to plan even though Chris has fallen in love with the young Andrew. Andrew grows suspecious, the plan is reveled and it's every man and woman for themselves. A fortune will go to the last one standing.
If we're funded from our last film, why are we here?
Yes funding is in place for our actors, locations and crew but we are already extended and find ourselves short for much needed equipment both rentals and purchases. We would love to purchase a five light Arri kit. WHY, WHEN YOU CAN RENT? Aside from our scheduled shoot, there will be a few random 2 and 3 hour days, effects and green screen shots making it more cost effective to own a modest kit. Especially since we are planning our next project ANGELS WITH TETHERED WINGS.
We are not being greedy. We are only working within the realm of what distributors require. A good looking, well lit film. We are well aware how the public will view our films. Iphones, computers and the old fashioned telly and are not here for a RED ONE camera. We have no plans of going theatrical. Our goal is to make quality LGBT films for viewing in the home. Our only regret with Luna Park was that, besides being shot on old school video, sometimes we had the proper lighting and sometimes we didn't. With our own kit we will not have this problem.
If we are lucky enough to exceed our goal then we will put it toward the purchase of a Cannon T4i camera. New or used.
Thank you for taking the time to consider our campaign and stop by often for updates!
