Straight from the life of the director/writer Jerry Smith, comes Love Is Dead. A short film that’s about a man’s journey out of an emotionally grueling life and on and onto the road to recovery. As Peter finally, reluctantly, joins a support group; he re-hashes the memory of how his loved one passed away in the most emotionally brutal way imaginable!
Smith on the part of his life the film is based on:
“I’ve lived through this awful, awful situation, and have always been enthralled by the ugly fact that our words can be just as dangerous as any knife or gun.”
Smith whom is also a writer for Icons of Fright, Blumhouse.com, Fangoria and Shock Till You Drop brings on board for this film, adult film star Aaron “Small Hands” Thompson (Burning Angel), Tristan Risk (American Mary, The Editor, Harvest Lake) and Ruben Pla (Insidious, Contracted, Dementia).
Smith’s “labor of love” is currently on a successful Indiegogo funding cap and if you want to add to the success let me tell you what’s in it for you!
From the campaign and press release:
We’ve got everything from signed photos to special LOVE IS DEAD art prints. Hell, we even have a special burlesque coffee table book! If we do not reach our entire goal, the funds raised will still be going towards LOVE IS DEAD, and we will then speak to various investors and producers to create the vision we know we can make. Featuring a massive amount of perks that come with pledging certain tiers, Smith and co. have assembled signed photos by Risk and Thompson, a Risk-signed copy of the BURLESQUE coffee table book and also at least a few handfuls of Burning Angel mechandise from Thompson.
