Here's your daily dose of an indie film in progress; at the end of the week, you'll have the chance to vote for your favorite.

In the meantime: Is this a movie you’d want to see? Tell us in the comments.


"Coyote Requiem"

Tweetable Logline:

COYOTE REQUIEM is a film about the triumph of the human spirit in the face of severe adversity.

Elevator Pitch:

Traumatized by a family tragedy the beautiful yet tragic Carmen flees LA, hoping to find some semblance of peace in a world she no longer finds worth living in.

On the desolate roads of the American southwest, Carmen finds herself increasingly haunted by horrific visions of her past, present and future. Before long, her world devolves into pure psychological torture as she fights against the realization that no matter how far she runs, there is no where to hide from the horrors of the most terrifying enemy she has ever faced… her own mind.

Production Team:

Director: Jason Lehel
Co-Producers: Jason Lehel, John Gordon, Joe de Kadt
Executive Producer: Bob Garrigus
Cinematographer: Jason Lehel

About the Production:

"Our creative mission statement is to promote healing by creating emotional, thought provoking, cinematic films that challenge the boundaries of the cinematic experience. We are here not only to entertain you, to show you stories that look beautiful but also to shake you up a little bit. One of the great demons we have to face in our lives is that of our own mind. We chose to tell this story, or this story chose us, because it is a great way for us to stay true to our mission AND relate to a broad section of human society." -- John Gordon

Current Status:

Post-Production.
