Recently, we've gotten quite a few submissions (and we're thrilled to see so much activity out there!) and this one stood out to us – shot on two Canon EOS 7D (reviews) HDSLRs, “The Inventor” looks to be a great short. The movie is ‘in the can' but they're looking for a bit of cash to help with post production – for more info please go to their site inventorfilm.com.
The director Joey Ciccoline sent us this:
“I'm a director and I've just finished shooting a short film with two Canon 7D's. We're now heading into post production and are trying to raise money to recoup our production costs, and finish the film. The reason I'm writing is because I know that from time to time you guys will mention film projects that are in the works in your news sectionâ€
“The Inventor is our first jump into the realm of short narrative film. Itâ€™s a story exploring the fine line between identity and insanity, and we need your help in bringing it to life. Set in a mental institute, one new patient wakes to find himself surrounded by men who believe themselves to be great men of history. While wrestling with his new reality, and the multiple interpretations of reality surrounding him, this patient begins to make sense of his own imprisonment through the friendship of an inmate claiming to be Thomas Edison.
The project has been filmed, but we have a lot of expenses to cover and thatâ€™s where you come in. We need your help so we can finish editing and begin submitting the film to festivals. Your support will help us accomplish our goal of finishing this by summerâ€™s end. Weâ€™ve had a lot of people donate their time and hard work so far, and weâ€™d like to bring you into our creative family by giving you the opportunity to give. We have several different incentives for your support, and weâ€™re greatly thankful for your desire to be a part of this project.â€
And here's the trailer:
