Synopsis: A lonely pencil pusher discovers a magical box that allows him to escape his dull existence.
This will be a high-caliber production run by experienced professionals, shot on a Red Epic, and a nice addition to a reel/resume. At the same time, it's a passion/art project we're funding from very shallow pockets. The entire cast/crew will be credited but unpaid. Meals, snacks, and drinks will be provided on set. The lead actor and crew department heads will need to be available the entire shoot. Others can volunteer for a minimum of 3 days.
