This student film has no backing except for contributions from the individuals who care about the same issues we do. Themes the film will cover: struggle of the unemployed, the systemic problem of costly education, anxiety of current job market, sex roles and "emasculation" from unemployment, difficulty of youth breaking into professions

The state of affairs is a horror story and that's the way we're telling it. But we need your help. No one is being paid through this film, not the crew or the actors, but we need funds for food, stay, lighting and sound rental. To open a discussion on the big issues of the film we have to hit big screens with a quality production.

We're a crew of young filmmakers who study filmmaking in NYC. We pay too much for college. We've marched with Occupy for it. But now that we have the know-how to make a film about it we will - for the sake of all students.


Dreaded is a Horror/Psych-Thriller with an estimated run-time of 12-15min

Will be shot on SONY XDCAM - a professional tapeless portable camera using affordable media

Production Plan: July & early August - Pre-Production / Raise initial funding August - Principal Photography September - Post-Production

It's an important and under addressed topic.

I've been wondering about the suicide rate. Not that easy to track with this recession/depression. Certainly NOT on the "News."
