Kickstart Sunday: THE PROCEDURE and THE BULB

  • Save
This week’s Kickstart Sunday pick is not one, but two new short films from Calvin Lee Reeder, a writer-director who we’ve always been a huge fan of on the site, and the twisted mind behind films like The Oregonian and The Rambler. The two films are titled The Procedure and The Bulb and will be filmed back to back in Seattle this August.

This Kickstarter campaign currently has 26 days remaining with a project goal of $11,000 so be sure to click here and donate today! Take a look below for more information.



From the Director, Calvin Lee Reeder, on THE PROCEDURE:

“A little while ago, I was inspired by an X-Files episode to create a mysterious and ridiculous experiment in which a man is abducted and held captive in a little room, then forced to participate in a peculiar experiment. Instead of actually doing this to somebody, I opted to write it as a short film called THE PROCEDURE. I’ve been searching for a way to make it for about a year now. It requires an elaborate set build and skilled individuals to pull it off. We’ve finally found the right people to do this, and I’m thrilled. But we need a little bit of money to pull it off.”


“I recently had a dream about a public access broadcast from a parallel dimension. I woke up confused and excited at the same time, so I wrote a short about it and called it THE BULB. It takes place in a flea bag motel where two strangers experience an unnatural phenomenon. In an empty lot around the corner, they discover the source of the anomaly while it manifests itself as an amorphous floating object that may or may not be a portal to some alien continuum. Upon entry, the strangers learn their curiosity is probably better left unsatisfied in this particular situation.”
