Short Summary 

My name is Ben Soto. I'm the writer/producer/co-director of Truth or Dare. Stories are what it's all about to me. They're how we learn, how we share, and how we communicate. Stories take us to places we never dreamed of going, and have the power to show us something about ourselves. Shaun Hosseini is my partner in crime in this endeavor and we're both very passionate about bringing stories to life. Shaun is a very talented director, and is the director/producer of Truth or Dare. 

I've worked on two short films with Shaun: Milo's Upgrade, and Possession. Milo's Upgrade is a science fiction short about nanotechnology gone wrong, and Possession is a horror short shot from the perspective of the killer. They were both a lot of fun and are both projects we are very proud of. We teamed up for Milo a few years ago and have been working together ever since with the goal of bringing Zeusbolt Productions to higher levels by making each project bigger and better than the last.   

Truth or Dare is a martial arts action short that combines the gritty pulp feel of noir with the idea seen in Westerns where a stranger passes through town and takes care of the bad guys. In our film a stranger gets caught up with a con artist named Adeline who is fighting to save her brother before time runs out. They meet and the action escalates. 

Shaun and I are upping the quality of this project. Contributors will see that vision come to life in the film. Props, equipment, the fight choreography, and locations are all topnotch and will combine to create the perfect storm for a kick-ass, memorable fun ride.  

What We Need & What You Get

We are raising 3000 dollars for the production of this film. The money will fund and pay for the actors, props, wardrobe, camera equipment, lighting, sound, make up, and locations. All of these things are crucial, and the money raised will make it happen. 

For perks we're offering some great things. 

- Access to an instagram account to see all the behind the scenes pics, footage, and updates

- Your name in the credits under a special section for those that have contributed.

- A download of not only Truth or Dare, but our two previous films. 

- An early screener of Truth or Dare where you can help shape the film. Send us your notes and be a part of the process! 

- Producer and executive producer credits for the film! 

If our entire goal is not reached the funds will still go toward the production of this film. We are filming on June 29th and 30th. It's happening, and the contributions will bear fruit by assisting in making the final product. Those that contribute will still get the perks of their pledge. 

The Impact

As I've stated before stories are where it's at for me. They're important in so many ways. Language is amazing. The written language is amazing. It's a beautiful thing we've created, and film helps those stories come to life in fantastic ways. Truth or Dare is a part of that long standing tradition of sharing and expressing. It's a story with characters you can relate to, and allows you to escape to another place you might not have considered going. Martial arts fans are going to have a great time with this movie and get to see some very well executed action sequences. 

Shaun and I learned a lot with our two previous projects. Milo's Upgrade helped sharpen our skills, and the project was successful with a premier at the Rosebud Cinema in Wisconsin. Check out the Facebook page 

Possession is being submitted to festivals as we speak. The creativity and intensity were raised on the horror short. It was shot in one continuous take. 

We are very excited about Truth or Dare and getting this project out there for people to enjoy.
