‘Strange Bird’ Successfully Funded: A Big TFS Thank You!

Written by on January 3, 2014 

Mere hours before the start of the 2014, Strange Bird, The Film Stage’s first official foray into originally-produced film content, got funded! This is a big thank you from all of us at The Film Stage. We started this site a mere five years ago in the hopes of talking about movies with the world all day, every day. That we now get to make movies for the whole world to watch, with the help of our readers, is a dream we’re thrilled is becoming a reality.

We’ve still got a week left of raising funds, so the sky is the limit. With $5,000 we can make the short we’re dreaming of; with $6,000 we can dream even bigger! Since we’ve launched the campaign, we also have a variety of new rewards. Do you want to join our official weekly podcast, The Film Stage Show, to talk movies? Or have a walk-on role in the short? Both options, and much more, can be found on our Kickstarter page. One can also see more information below, including our pitch video, and stay tuned for updates.

When terrible, heinous crimes are committed the first thing most of us ask is, “For what reason did this happen?” In thinking about this, it becomes clear that the most frightening answer is: there was no reason at all. To kill without any motive or intent is something sociopathic, something almost alien. Something very strange indeed.

When we meet our hero Detective Henry Harker, he’s at the tail end of a decade-long journey to find Simon, the man who killed his younger sister. As he finally encounters Simon, he’ll try to better figure out the man behind the murder.

The two men share a long, sordid history, beginning from childhood and culminating here, at a lake house in the middle of nowhere.

This story serves as the first act of a much longer tale, one that explores the nature of evil and the temptation within all of us to turn to that dark part of ourselves. In Henry Harker we see a complicated hero who’s narrative has only just begun.

Thank you for your support. Please find more information on the official Facebook and Kickstarter pages.
