"Mother's House" starring Kathryn Erbe in need of backers



About this project

SYNOPSIS:
 When Catherine and Thomas begin to empty his late mother’s home, they unearth secrets in the cluttered rooms. What happened there, years ago? Dreams, memory, and reality do battle in the disturbing world of “Mother’s House”.

BACKGROUND: 
Our real-life experience clearing out the home of Davis' late parents inspired a series of “what if” questions... What if a long-forgotten mystery lay waiting under layers of family possessions? What if all your childhood memories proved false? What if nothing was as you remembered it? And could you tell this story in under thirty minutes?

With Kathryn Erbe and Tim Guinee leading the cast, the project quickly gathered speed. A nine-day shoot in idyllic Stone Ridge involved a talented crew of over forty people, from high school students to professionals with decades of experience in the film industry. A 150-year-old house provided a location with enormous personality, and film-friendly upstate NY gave us the perfect mix of bizarre and beautiful.

Directed by Davis Hall and produced by Ingrid Price (former costume designer at Law and Order: CI and a friend of Kate's).

The ambitious shoot didn’t come cheap. The cast worked under the SAG Short Film Agreement, the crew generously donated their time and expertise, but we paid for equipment rentals, transportation, location rentals, housing, local law enforcement, meals (!), craft service, set dressing, wardrobe, props... you get the picture.

GOAL: 
We’ve got a gorgeous film, with terrific performances from Kathryn Erbe, Tim Guinee, Eddie Schweighardt, and Denny Dillon. The Sony XDCAM HD cinematography is spectacular, the sound is outstanding. We’re in the final stages of editing, adding music and sweetening the final audio mix.

This is a good film; we want people to see it.

The funds we receive here at Kickstarter will be used for the following:
• Studio time for the final sound mix
• Transfer costs to HDCAM and other festival-friendly screening formats
• Entry fees and associated costs for film festivals
• Marketing and publicity


The ultimate goal is to have “Mother’s House” seen by as many audiences as possible. You can make that happen.

Project location: Stone Ridge, NY

Pledge $100 or more -- The Silver Screen: a “special thanks” mention on our website, plus the DVD as soon as it’s available, and your name in the “special thanks” section of the credit roll of the film itself.
