PROJECT TITLE: A Murder Most Cold

CATEGORY: Feature Film
FORMAT: HD
DISTRIBUTION: Festival Circuit
SHOOTING SCHEDULE: Mid October-Mid November
SHOOTING LOCATION: Newark DE, Wilimington DE, Elkton MD

SYNOPSIS:

“A Murder Most Cold” is set in a all too near future where androids work side by side with humans. One of these androids has been raped and murdered, but the killers have gone free, and now a fellow android is out to avenge the death of her “sister.” She hires a hit man to help her track down the thugs but as the journey goes on it becomes clear that her hired gun is less human than she is and perhaps even as twisted as the killers they’re hunting.

The film will be shot in black and white, film-noir style. While there will be lots of action and suspense the plan is to try and create a 50s B-Movie atmosphere so as to focus on the story, characters and ideas rather than get caught up with special effects. Several parts have already been cast and shooting will begin mid October in the Newark and Wilmington DE area. The film will be shot entirely with Canon DSLRS (T2i, T3i and 60D).
