IT'S ABOUT A troubled stripper named Venus, whose quiet life is upended when Brian - the love of her life - Breaks up with her… and now Venus, disturbed to begin with, starts a downward spiral into maddening psychosis.
THERE'S A TWIST. And they don't want to give it away by outlining the entire plot of their film…
THEY PROMISE A VERY SEXY, GROUNDED, CHARACTER-DRIVEN, TWISTED TALE!!! But at THE story's core, and what will set this film apart from standard genre fare, is a deeply human story about the pain of heartbreak. A Love Tragedy. They promise escape.
THE DARK SIDE OF VENUS will not only be that escape, it’ll be a ride – always surprising, always thrilling, and always shockingly psychotic in the best of ways.
A LITTLE MORE ABOUT THE DIRECTOR: JON KNAUTZ
After the successes of his short films, Jon parlayed his talent into his first feature film JACK BROOKS:MONSTER SLAYER starring Robert Englund (the infamous Freddy Krueger from A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET). The film gained considerable attention throughout the festival circuit and received rave reviews. The film screened at the 2008 Slamdance film festival and subsequently sold to Anchor Bay. His second feature, THE SHRINE, premiered at the 2010 FanTasia Int'l Film Festival and won the Audience Award for Best Canadian Feature. Shortly after, the film was purchased by IFC and is currently streaming on NETFLIX.
THE DARK SIDE OF VENUS NEEDS YOUR HELP.
The film has already wrapped up, however the filmmakers need your help in funded the post production costs.
Your contribution will go here:
1. Sound Design ( In order for a film to have emotional impact, sound design is integral. All those heels clicks, door slams and tire screeches need to be recorded and applied to the film during post production)
2. Color Correction (Typically films are shot with a 'dull' look to the color. This is done on purpose to allow for more flexibility later in post. Professional Colorists will alter and enhance the color of every scene for visual impact.)
3. Final Mix (This is the last stage. It's when sound, music and image are all mixed together to create the final product.)
YOU GET... A Hell-of-a Ride! We greatly appreciate your interest and support, but we're no more deserving than any other artists on Indiegogo. We hope you'll help simply because you want to see our film...
