For Your Consideration:
Writer, producer and director Angelo Bell has an extensive list of credits on the Internet Movie Database (IMDB), now he is crowdfunding an amazing thriller called “A Perfect Weapon.” If you enjoy the classic storytelling of a Tom Clancy novel or a movie adaptation like “Clear and Present Danger” and “Patriot Games” – or “The Fugitive” — or perhaps something like Angelina Jolie in “Salt” or Fincher’s “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”, chances are you’ll love to see “A Perfect Weapon“ on the big screen!
Angelo has assembled a stellar international cast including Alimi Ballard (“Numb3rs”), Tehmina Sunny (“Mistresses”, “Argo”, “Children of Men”) and Rayna Tharani of Tyler Perry’s “For Colored Girls”. But he needs the general movie-going audience’s help to make his next movie.
Lately a few celebrities such as Spike Lee, Zach Braff, Shemar Moore and Kristen Bell (no relation to Angelo) have crowdfunded independent film projects for hundred of thousands of dollars, even millions. Angelo doesn’t expect to raise that kind of money on Indiegogo because he’s not a celebrity. He expects to go the more traditional route of raising seed money (often referred to as “first money in”) so that he may build an attractive package to take to investors and production partners. By Hollywood standards he’s trying to raise a modest $200k. By indie standards that figure is a bit more aggressive.
“A Perfect Weapon” is about a disgraced US Marshal, Shey, who is reinstated to track down an escaped criminal, Femi, who may have ties to international terrorists, guerrilla war mongers and government sanctioned assassinations. Desperate to redeem himself, Shey becomes so obsessive about capturing Femi that reality becomes a blur, even after he learns the hard way that someone doesn’t want him to find her.
In his ten year career as an indie filmmaker Angelo has made all his movies almost exclusively with his own money. Now he wants to bring even bigger and better entertainment to the moviegoing audience.
His Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign link is: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/a-perfect-weapon/x/9890. With the money he raises Angelo hopes take care of all the legal paperwork, contracts and offers so the team can start shooting immediately in North Carolina while simultaneously working with investors for the rest of the money to complete the film.
Angelo claims to have worked hard to give this project international appeal. His actors are American, African-American, Indian-American, Polynesian, and British. They have worked around the world, on several continents as well as Hollywood, Bollywood, and Nollywood. Angelo asserts that the world is a melting pot of rich diverse culture and he aims to snag a little bit of that, place it on the screen and create something fun, suspenseful, thrilling and memorable!
