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

The plan

 

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.
