This spring/summer Drawn Onward Films is producing a short film called The Spiral.
The Spiral is about a woman named Penelope who wakes up after a heavy night of drinking and can’t remember the one-night stand she assumes has taken place. She is consumed by dark thoughts and sinks into an existential crisis, unaware of the powerful connection she’s made. The story unfolds in her apartment as she struggles to remember the events of the night before. In her vulnerable state, she experiences a savage encounter with a stranger that sends her even deeper into doubt. This story is about our need to connect, and how we punish ourselves so mercilessly when we doubt our own impact. Life is difficult, and The Spiral is an exploration of one woman’s struggle to see her own beauty and grace.
We have an indiegogo campaign up and running to try and raise the modest funds we need to get this film made.
In particular I want to draw attention to two of our perks that might offer other filmmakers (such as you) some incentive to consider helping us out. Both perks allow you the opportunity to contribute to a film being made, while simultaneously furthering your own film-making goals/film project! A win-win.
