Premise: A homeless man hunts angels in a dystopian society.

Long Story Short:


I contacted the writer (C. Robert Cargill) of the novel DREAMS AND SHADOWS and horror film SINISTER on Reddit last year and asked him to work on a thesis film together. He actually replied. I sent him the films I directed, he liked them, we met in person, and he wrote the script. I am extremely grateful I met him - He is one the nicest and most genuine individuals you will ever meet.

After that I found the contact information for the cinematographer of INSIDIOUS. I basically pestered him for three weeks until we finally met. He loved the script and material. He decided to come onboard as either cinematographer or camera operator.


I then went to one of the professors while I was at USC. I showed him the script and material and he wanted be attached to the film as a production advisor/mentor. He was a production executive/manager on films like THE THING, STAR WARS: RETURN OF THE JEDI, INDIANA JONES, THE GOONIES, and other films.


While those films are horror, this film is in the genre of fantasy/thriller.
I am extremely appreciative and thankful that these individuals all decided to become apart of this project. It would be amazing if we could help make this turn into full reality. I really appreciate the time you have taken to read this and hope this can happen.

I think to correlate to movie situations (which I feel have similar problems/successes) is the one of "Inception" or any of Christopher Nolan films really. They tend to have Romance/Relationship in it, but keep it to a  minimal. I think its great to have it in there, as long as it doesn't overwhelm the story. Now if the book is Romance-driven, that is completely fine. However, if it isn't, I like the books to be kept to a minimal ratio to keep the plot moving.

I tend to think of High Concept with fictional characters placed in a world filled with magic and mysticism tends to be automatically grouped to "Fantasy"

How is this not trolling?

I tend to avoid them due to the fact that I am extremely excited to start the book. I can't hold it in once I open it and go right over the prologue.
