With society against him, how will Callum use his newfound abilities to escape a lifetime of neglect?
What it about?
Callum White, aged 23, his life going nowhere. One night he finds a mysterious brief case containing a comic book, after a slow shift at work. He takes it home for further inspection and he discovers the pages are covered in a fine powdered drug that unknowingly splits his personality in two. One being his normal, worthless self and the other being an impulsive fighter for Justice!
After the drug takes control of Callum, he wakes up in the middle of nowhere. He is greeted by a friendly man called Daryl, who promises Callum he can help and knows what is going on. Daryl gives him an address to go to and the pair part ways. After some time deliberating whether to go and his uncontrolled powers becoming to much to handle on his own, he makes the decision to go. Callum arrives at a warehouse, met by Daryl and a number of henchmen. As we come to realise he has been lead into a trap, Callum’s powers fully activate which presents him with only one option. To take down Daryl and his henchmen with his bare hands.
Why is this important?
Through the whole creative process of this project it has been a massive journey and continually is being improved. Now being fully supported by our university the project is progressing faster than ever and shooting will commence in January!
The core of the story is built around the youth of today feeling like they just cant achieve, like society is beating you down. But you’re in control of your life, you make the choices. We feel this film stands for the people who have been told they cant achieve, who have been told they can’t progress… because we have faced the same.
This story is personal to us and we hope will become personal to you as well. Join us on making this film into something incredible!
How would the funding help?
The funds we manage to raise will go towards equipment hire, such as lights (as we have many nightshoots), lens hire, catering and props! There is a lot of ground to cover, and anything is extremely appreciated.
But ultimately at the end of the day, we want to make something amazing and we want an audiance to see it. So your biggest contribution would be to share this campaign with the share feature! Tell your friends and family! Let’s get this talked about for the people that don’t have a voice.
