The Hoaxing short film is a proof of concept to get funding for the feature film (dream scenario includes development of an episodic tv property & franchise).
Produced with a zero budget, just imagine what we could do with funding!
The Hoaxing short film won “Best Horror” at the Toronto Shorts International Film Festival. The short has also played in the The West Chester Film Festival (2019) DTLA Film Festival (2018), and Culver City Film Festival (2018).
Pitch Deck, budget, and feature script upon request.
Angie and Cash can’t believe their luck – a sprawling art studio in DTLA that’s dirt cheap.
For two starving artists, it’s the deal of a lifetime. Once Angie discovers what Cash already knew – the cheap rent is because of the gruesome murders that took place weeks before – she wants no part of it. Cash convinces her that moving into the studio is the best thing for their art. She’ll have the space and focus to paint without the worry of paying the bills. And he’ll be able to pull off his greatest work of art yet – a hoax that the loft they are living in is possessed. But as Cash broadcasts their fake encounters with the paranormal on social media, unexplainable things start to happen.
