Support The Line
On Friday April 7th an Indiegogo campaign to collect production funds for The Line will start it’s six month long drive. The Line is written by Jin Okubo, author of Love, and will be directed by Jimmy Lee, founder of the Unity Film Festival. Production is scheduled to take place this fall at a derelict farm in California. The Line is a psycho thriller about a group of murders that the FBI believes are all related to the same person, an unnamed and unknown serial killer.
In a world of remakes, prequels, and sequels, we’re looking to make something new. We’re working to capture again the feeling of meeting the monster in the dark, an unknown killer, without basing it on someone else’s character. The depravities and impulses of the human mind are as unique as the individual. And no one makes a better monster to humans than another human. This is the story we want to tell, want to share with the world, but we need help to make the horror come alive. Remember in Silence of the Lambs, how you felt when Jody Foster was in that basement. Through the night vision you can see the utter fear and helplessness in her eyes. In a way you could taste that damp air she was breathing. We have a great story, now we need the funds to hire fabulous actors and crew to finish it. Let’s show the world that great acting still exists and great stories can still be made.
In making, and funding, this short film we are striving to show you what can lay hidden behind a human face. And in order to do that we encouraging our backers to help us, in more ways than just money. We have several interesting perks that will make you a part of the film itself, not just a sponsor or patron. Check out the Indiegogo Campaign The Line Short Film to see how you can join us, and our killer, in our movie.
April Author of the Month: Miranda T. Valenz
As I write my series I work hard to get into that state of mind where I can see into the recesses, down where the darkness lies inside of all of us. That insane part of the brain that gives me the inspiration is where my story comes from. It was stated that the author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson spoke to the Cheshire cat and in those conversations he found the story that is so treasured today. Whether that urban legend is true or not only Charles can say. Though I would say that we all have our demons that bring us the stories we so love to write. In that case I recommend Coyote Hills as a great way to discover depths in your own soul that you did not know existed or were not willing to open up.
Asking Miranda for the honour of her being the Author of the month on my blog I posed her two questions.
In 500 words can you tell me what first sparked your drive to write the way you do?
If I give you 1000 words can you add why you chose your genre?
She responded with questions of her own, a clear sign of a good writer.
My Genre is whatever comes into my mind, I love fantasy, but I had to write that thriller because I’ve been thinking of it for years, and years.
Any time my imagination acts up, which is quite often, I start writing.
I’ve been that way since I was a little kid. What ever I think I can picture it, then I write it the way I see it.
She was quick to inform me that I had not answered her question as to what I thought of her book. As you can see from what I have written I think her book carries much weight in my writing. I would say that it is worth the wait for her next novel for it will not be a let down. Though what says the most from her can be taken straight from her Author page found here :Miranda T. Valenz
