When we wake up, do our dreams usually go back to sleep? A fascinating question we need to ask ourselves. The movie is about two girls who decide to rob their wealthy childhood friend who is psychotic, and the friend lives in a fantasy world by taking the part of her make-belief deadly game.
The Plot Of The Movie
The film has been written and also directed by a rising filmmaker Mitzi Peirone. A psychological thriller Braid follows Tilda Darling and Petula Thames who are the two self-proclaimed artists in the movie, turned to be dealers on the run. After they have been mishandling thousands of dollars in just narcotics, these two girls have been given only 48 hours to repay there not so forgiving drug lord.
They decide they need to flee town, so they head to the abandoned mansion of their wealthy childhood friend called Daphne Peters, with the goal of getting into the safe that is in the house. Daphne has been living secluded for a couple of years in the manor, so she has a grown to a very scary schizophrenic and has been a prisoner of the fantasy world.
For the two girls to flee with her money, they are forced to take part in a twisted and bloody game of make-believe that has been created by Daphne. It is a crazy maze that has been filled with hallucinations, torture, role play and murder. A movie that will indeed keep you on the edge of your seat.
The Campaign And Monetization Of The Film
With the campaign, approximately $1,250,000 has been targeted to be raised for the 1 million BRAID Tokens. The mission of this campaign is to disrupt the way in which most feature films have been funded traditionally. The vision is creating a profitable independent filmmaking industry, where the filmmakers can get the financing they will need quickly.
It will give the filmmakers the opportunity to produce a full-length feature film outside the major films that are around and still be able to do the project at a fraction of the blockbuster movie budget. As for the investors on this platform, they will be able to earn a fair share of the profits that have been generated by the films.
It includes all the forms of exhibition, distribution, transmission and also the exploitation of the films. All this includes, but are not limited to, the theatrical releases of the film, streaming, television, video, and broadcast.
With this kind of independence that the platform is hoping to establish, it will allow the various filmmakers to have their artistic vision realized. It is because they will not need to cater to the demands of the studio for casting certain celebrities. Additionally, with the equity crowdfunding in place, it will indeed change the way in which the film industry has been working the past several years.
As a result, this is something to look out for as both an investor, and a filmmaker as the blockchain technology is about to bring positive changes, the kind of changes we have seen in other industries. It is an advantage to both parties as investors are assured of their returns while filmmakers can keep the full creative control they need for successful film production.
