What is it about?
Two policemen respond to a hold-up in the middle of the woods, but they ignore that the situation – simple on the surface – hides a dirty mess of secrets and treasons…
Hey there! Do you like short films?
We believe that we can offer you, in only 18 minutes, everything you have a right to expect when you watch a feature film: great characters, emotion, plot twists, and lots of tension… In short, a story that you won’t be able to forget.
Thrice is influenced by the noir universe (think Jim Thompson meets Tarantino), which is full of themes that we love to turn into images: lack of hope, motivations that stay undecipherable until the bitter end, dark crimes, and desperate protagonists that are willing to do anything to reach their goals. Looking for happy endings? Change the channel…
This project has been haunting us for a long time now, and we are finally ready to make it happen!
The shooting locations are confirmed, and the casting is locked: we have turned our little Switzerland upside down looking for some real lookers!
How can you help?
We have decided to produce Thrice independently, through our non-profit association, New Game Films. We have already covered all costs linked to technical equipment: lights, camera (Red Epic), sound, steadycam, cranes, etc.
At this stage, with only 6’000 CHF more, we can start the project and bring it to completion.
Thanks to your help, in fact, we will be able to cover the remaining production costs, which include:
- Postproduction in general: sound mixing,
- Color grading, editing, etc.
- Special effects & make-up
- Production design & costumes
