In addition, Quinten Williams (known for Luciana and Ryan and James Take a Wrong Turn) is producing for his own company.

The campaign sets out to raise at least $10,000 to help with finishing costs for this UCLA thesis film. The $10,000 includes costs associated with coloring, an original score, and film festival entrance fees. The short film shot on the UCLA campus in November 2023 and is making its way through post-production. We need your help so this story can be finished and the story can be released.

This story is: Rick supports his lifelong friend, Jack, during his first full moon as a werewolf. They are equipped with breathing exercises and a cage made of silver so that Jack can transform without hurting his friend. As the stress of the upcoming transformation arises and Jack lets his anger out on Rick, Rick lets out his own frustration on Jack about feeling rejected after they slept together two months prior. As their argument reaches its peak, Jack painfully transforms and Rick realizes the protective cage is unlocked.

In addition to the queer horror aspects, this film uses werewolfism as a metaphor for anxiety (something most people can relate to in one way or another.) In addition, heartbreak is a universal experience that can help tie everyone to the story.

Starring in the film are Cole Sitilides as Rick and Zach Chasen as Jack. Additional crew consists of DP, Angelica Gonzalez, and SFX makeup by Emily Rice-Slothower.

The campaign offers downloadable posters and behind the scenes pictures for your contributions. The campaign has only 44 days left so urgency in contributions are appreciated.
