Mockingbird campaign launched at Indiegogo

Catherine's husband may have died, but she still talks to him every day. Now she hears him talking back...calling her to the forest. 

Mockingbird is a psychological horror short film currently in pre-production. The project is a proof of concept for a feature film, demonstrating how sound can be utilized subjectively to enhance mood and tension. We are inviting you to be part of this process with us and be a part of Mockingbird from the very beginning by supporting us at Indiegogo and taking advantage of the perks available.
