This methodology also inspires a creative rush through the discovery of exciting and new artistic choices. Limited to four PARTICIPATING WRITERS ($125) due to the significant individual attention they are given, AUDITING WRITERS ($50) are also welcome and urged to participate in the discussions and brainstorming.

Local Film Production Company Set to Produce Static Shock Fan Film

E-mail Print PDF
AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Indianapolis, IN — April 4, 2012 — For those comic enthusiasts out there, Fan Film Productions is slated to start production on a Static Shock fan film to be shot in Indianapolis.

In June of 1993, Dwayne McDuffie created Static, a comic book series about a young teenager named Virgil Hawkins living in the midst of gang violence and inner city struggles in the fictional city of Dakota. Static was one of the first (and only) African American superheroes to star in his own comic, and in 2000 even went on to star in the hit series Static Shock for 52 halfhour episodes. The Static Shock series was important as it was an inspiring, uplifting superhero cartoon that successfully reached out to young men and women, and brought McDuffie's work into the limelight and center stage.

Static Shock: Redemption is being shot as a short, trailer-format production. It will focus on the evolution of Static from a typical teenager to a young superhero embracing the responsibilities he inherits after a freak accident. Redemption will introduce the audience to various key villains, as well as Static and his own stable of crime fighters. The production is primarily being financed through an online crowd-sourcing effort via www.indiegogo.com. Those interested in contributing to the production can visit http://igg.me/p/85786 to make a donation.

The award-winning producers of the Static Shock: Redemption have always been fans of Static Shock, and are creating this high-definition, high-quality short film to bring Static BACK in the form of a live-action series. The goal is for the trailer-format film to go viral and draw enough attention to gain an audience with DC Comics to pitch a live-action web series.

Static Shock: Redemption is slated for an August 2012 release with subsequent exhibitions at various comic conventions across the country.

 

Karmic Courage - Raising Funds For INGENUE

Noblesville, April 2, - Karmic Courage Productions, the company behind 13 short films is making its first feature film this summer in Indiana. Written and directed by award-winning producer Kate Chaplin, "Ingenue" it's a light science fiction piece about a married couple that finds a human analog (clone) in their basement and is blackmailed by big business to raise her and teach her what it means to be human and to be a woman. The script contains a lot of heart, is family friendly, and offers many points of view. The great part about it is that the audience can relate the Analog and ask themselves what would it be like if they restarted with a clean slate.

"Ingenue" is utilizing Indiegogo.com to raise funds for the production. http://www.indiegogo.com/ingenue?c=home&a=507926 Their goal is to raise $7,225, the same amount of money legendary writer/director Robert Rodriguez used to make "El Marachi" 20 years ago. Much like Rodriguez's production journal "Rebel Without a Crew," Chaplin will publish a production journal about the trials and tribulations of making "Ingenue" as a filmmakers' guide.

Casting has begun. A casting call is scheduled for April 7th in Noblesville.
Karmic Courage is known for it's high production value on a low budget. Their films have been shown in major festivals and conventions nationally and won awards in Indiana and Hollywood, CA.

For $10 you get your name in the credits in a feature film that will be seen by thousands. For $25 you get two tickets to the premiere of Ingenue slated for March of 2013. More great perks and information about the project and Karmic Courage visit http://www.indiegogo.com/ingenue?c=home&a=507926
