Help race to The Verge in a new SF short

VergeThree women are fighting their way towards the top of a flooding building as the world comes to an end, all part of an enigmatic selection process that will change the fate of humanity.

That’s the logline for The Verge, a new action, SF short film currently in preproduction, and funding on Kickstarter. The script was written by award winning writer and New York Film Academy graduate Alba Moyano, and the film will be directed by Mark J.Blackman, an award-winning director with extensive experience working on short films, music, corporate and broadcast promos around the world. It is produced by Zbigniew Siwek, owner of Thunderhawk Pictures.
