Abrupt Studios and director Chris Le are excited to announce the Kickstarter Campaign for the scifi film entited JUAREZ 2045 starring Danny Trejo. The movie is about a group of marines who must combat a robotic drug cartel lead by Danny Trejo in Juarez, Mexico. Featuring world class visual effects all done by director Le and a score by videogame superstar Sam Hulick, the film is expected to be finished in November of 2015. Says Director Le “the project is very ambitious and we need monetary help to complete our visual effects. So far I’ve been the only one doing them and if I can get some help, we’ll be able to complete the film sooner and at an even higher level. Our goal is to do Hollywood Blockbuster style visual effects at a fraction of the budget that they do it for and that’s why we need Kickstarter’s help.” —
The campaign features a wide range of items that can be bought. Rocky Mudaliar of Abrupt studios says “We really wanted to do something special with this campaign so we created some incredible prizes. From high end designer t-shirts to USB sticks in the shape of bullets to Executive Producer credits we wanted to give everyone some of the best prizes on Kickstarter. Chris is a designer so each item is spectacularly designed with our fans in mind.”
The filming of the movie has been completed and there has been major studio interest in the project but Studios won’t get involve until the film is completed. Director Le says “With this film we set out to show everyone that you can do a major Hollywood quality project for much cheaper than they spend in Hollywood. We have a major actor in Danny Trejo, the production value is very high and the visual effects will be ground-breaking. We want to deliver something spectacular to our fans”.
A majority of the money raised through the Kickstarter campaign will go to Visual FX development and secondly on the sound design of the film, music and mixing. Composer Sam Hulick from the Mass Effect videogame series states “I’m ecstatic to be part of this project. I think people will be blown away with the quality of it overall. I can’t wait to get scoring it and do something that my fans will love”.
Backers who support the project through their generous monetary contributions will be receiving awesome designed rewards as a token of appreciation for supporting the film. For more information please visit: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/abruptstudios/juarez-2045
