A large message for a short film, one that hopefully you can help us bring to fruition.A major theme of this short is about physical absuse and the lasting effects it can have on someone if they decide to let it take hold of them. We feel it Is important to recognize that you do not need to carry the weight of your past, in order to build a better future. 28.3% of adults report being physically abused as a child (childhelp.org). We don't want to give away any spoilers, but we have a deep emotional connection with this issue and would like the opportunity to shine a light on it from a new and unique persepective.Thank you so much for your interest, please follow our campaign and spread the word. This short is guarenteed to hit you in all the feels. We can't wait for you to experience it and we thank you for accompanying us on the journey <3.We’ve always been fascinated by identity and how certain events can cause someone to alter their character. Why do those events in particular stick out to us and cause us to change? The Paradox revolves around the complexities of all relationships, and how our vulnerabilities and burdened pasts can alter relationships, for better or worse. It asks the questions, do we allow preconceived notions to haze our judgement and fall into the paradox of trying to re-write history? Do we just cut out those negative parts of our past? Or do we decide to move forward under new terms?Dylan felt it was important to have the main character constantly in motion, and for the film style to reflect that. Whether this means he is running away, or towards his future, it's a drive that everyone can relate to. An uncompromissing dedication to a single goal. An unrelenting search for betterment. A purpose.All filming will take place in Southern California, and Production is scheduled to begin in Fall 2017
