Static: The Movie

I’m pleased to announce that STATIC, the short film has reached its Indiegogo funding goal!

STATIC, the short film script, is based on the short story “Static” by playwright, screenwriter and author Robert Shearman, which appeared in his World Fantasy Award-winning debut collection, Tiny Deaths. It was written and will be directed by Tanya Lemke, a veteran of the Canadian film and television production community, whose many credits include Queer As Folk, The Murdoch Mysteries, Lost Girl, and Orphan Black.

The script won the CFC Worldwide Short Film Festival’s Screenplay Giveaway Prize last year, which awarded us some generous donations from highly respected industry suppliers such as Deluxe Post, William F. White’s and Cinespace to go toward making the film a reality.

The cast includes:
