Project of the Day: 'Ashes'

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.


Tweetable Logline: Two brothers search a post-apocalyptic wasteland for antibiotics to save their sister who’s dying from tuberculosis.

Elevator Pitch: Ashes is a story about the kind of unconditional love only a family member is capable of. Two brothers are searching a post-apocalyptic wasteland for antibiotics to save their sister who’s dying from tuberculosis. These brothers have lost everything to a nuclear fallout. The only thing they have left is their sister and she’s dying. They set out on a quest to find what she needs to save her, putting themselves at great risk.

Production Team:

Director: Steven Roderick Jurich
Cinematographer: Rhys Waite
Producer(s): Josh Kotoff, Steven Roderick Jurich, RJ Hall

About the Production:  Ashes is important to me because it demonstrates exactly how far a human being will go to save someone that they love. Often times the post-apocalyptic genre comments on the decay of humanity and the loss of this core human ability to care. Ashes takes the opposing viewpoint. In the event of total disaster some if not all human beings will look to cling to everything they understand, that they have left. Ashes is a story about that love.

Current Status: Post-Production (Editing, Music, Mix, Visual Effects, Color Grading).

    Actually, I'd like to see "Ashes." I'm a sucker for post-apocalyptic anything (except, please God, no more zombie movies.) And this sounds like some thought was actually put into the hook.
