As a big fan of the Sci-fi- Syfy cyberpunk genre growing up admiring the works of Stanley kubrick 2001 Ridley Scott Alien George Lucus etc. I always wanted to make a good thought provoking Sci-fi but I knew it would be more costly to try but me not taking no for an answer decided to do it anyway as a lifetime artist I dove in shifted mediums even though my background was in Art and film spending 3 years at Columbia I took it upon myself and started learning CGI over the last 4 years with some astounding results seasoned veteran producer Sal Munir Joined in that's When we really got started shifting gears we wanted to make an Intelligent film with state of the art visuals and out sourcing costumes added with realistic set design but the realities of things caused us to rethink our plan and rely more heavily on in house CGI.
Money raised will enable us to outsource certain scenes that require more advanced rendering systems We will also work with other talented visual effects artist to fill in for any of our detailed unfinished final compositions entailing live action shots with CGI in order to stay on schedule. Music is another huge factor in the process securing music writes it can be A long drawn out and costly process so we want to hire composers to do all original music and pay them upfront which will be much more economical for the budget
Our team is dedicated to producing a Intelligent thought provoking witty quality film that can rival Hollywods best but for a small fraction of the money using some of Chicago's and surrounding areas for local actors 4k cameras original costume design and small technical crew small studio space for green screen and less then 2000 square feet on a 4 month time frame for principle photography.
The Budget will help provide money for Casting and talent saleries studio rental Kraft services equipment rental transportation coast paper work and Insurance.

We know trying to raise $100 dollars in 40 days sounds like A ridiculously low estimation of the money we really need but we are trying to build a passionate following for the completed film as well as finding passionate backers be it ultimately A short or a feature A realistic estimation to make this film would easily coast allot more. But we know we can make the film around $75,000 as a micro budget film In the final analysis we will do all we can to make the film with what ever amount of money we raise On behalf of the production team we thank you sincerely.
Now let's make this film a good one WITH YOUR HELP!
