Lighting, Camera and Sound Volunteers Needed

Eternal Torture

Looking for crew members for the film, “Eternal Torture”. Filming starts March 1st, 2013 in the Troy, MI area.

Synopsis:

This is a story about a dysfunctional family: a father, a mother, and her two children. The husband is a violent man who viciously beats his wife until one day she decides enough is enough. She escapes the violence, barely with her life. The daughter develops resentment towards her mother for leaving her dad, in spite of the abuse afflicted on her mom. The daughter and father relationship was that of a tight bond.

As a result of the domestic abuse she’s endured, the mother’s feelings for her children have become detach and uncaring as she converts to being the violent abuser. Most of this abuse is directed towards her son as he is to her a constant reminder of his abusive dad—so she releases her pain and anger, which is built up inside her, onto the child. The son does not understand his mother’s anger towards him and so he becomes afraid of her. Now his only comfort and protection from his physical and mental pain is God.

Available Crew Positions:

  • Lighting Crew

Compensation:
