A Crimson Man Launches Campaign On Kickstarter

A Crimson Man Launches Campaign On Kickstarter

Burbank, California USA

Writer/Director Mike Pappa and company launched it’s Kickstarter campaign for their live-action sci-fi short film A Crimson Man. This practical effects driven film has a goal of raising $60,000 in 30 days and offering a collection of perks ranging from props, artwork to production credits.

A Crimson Man is set in a war-torn land of man vs. machine. Wei, a young runaway boy in search of his father, must ally with an unstable war-robot named Red or be hunted down by his overseers. This Phillip K. Dick inspired adventure is seen through the gaze of a young boy, touching upon childlike wonder and curiosity, while exploring such themes as fathers & sons and the invisible wounds of war.

Think Terminator 2 meets Born On The Fourth Of July. This short will require both visual and practical effects to build the world of humans and robots, drawing inspiration from such pivotal usage of practical effects from E.T., The Empire Strikes Back and The Thing. These effects are not just for awe and wonder, but for believability.

The goal is to build a practical robot for the young actor to interact with and get better performances from. With a VFX consultant credited on the BFG and X-Men: Days of Future Past and an animatronics lead who’s worked with the Jim Henson Company and Disney, the team intends to tackle these effects challenges head on.

Not only has the team crafted an emotionally interesting and original sci-fi story, but there is a thorough plan for raising and utilizing the $60,000 in funds.

Though the Beta testing is well in the past, we at Max It are always working to improve the site, keep the gears oiled, and all around tinker to improve the experience for both the indie filmmakers that submit content, as well as the indie film lovers that drop in for their daily fix.

Just like suspicious activity, we ask that if you see something wrong, have a suggestion, or would just like to tell us just what you like or dislike about the site, you let us know.

We've a lot of things still to add (No Peeking Behind The Curtain!), but we want to make sure what is current online is working without issues. To do this each day we'll add more articles, tweak a feature here, remove a feature there. Just to keep things moving along in the right direction.

To let us know of anything, just click on Contact in the Main Menu at the top and give us as detailed a description of the problem, or suggestion and we'll do our best to look to see if and how it can be fixed, or added!

As always, we thank you for your support!
