A team of filmmakers in Jacksonville has begun production on a psychological thriller described as being inspired by the likes of Alfred Hitchcock and Stanley Kubrick.
The film titled I Am Going to Kill Someone this Friday explores the psyche of a seemingly “normal” man named Robert Partridge.
Yet Partridge is anything but normal.
Pre-release information from the filmmakers explained:
“Robert Partridge lives a normal life in a normal neighborhood with a normal job, a normal family, and normal friends. But Robert Partridge is not normal. Are Psychopaths born or created? How are their victims chosen? Who is Robert Partridge and who is he going to kill?”
The film is an indie effort, and in keeping with current trends, the creators are turning to crowdfunding. A trailer and additional details are posted on the ‘Kill Someone’ Go Fund Me page.
Jared Rush is executive producer of the film, and will also assist with co-writing. Taurean Royal is co-producing and co-writing, with William Bishop also producing.
Director/writer and co-creator Durden Godfrey recognized the benefits of technology for indie filmmaking years ago. According to information from the filmmakers:
“When Durden Godfrey was in high school, a close friend unlocked a magical world for him by telling him that anyone could make a movie with a home camcorder and a computer. That was nearly 15 years ago.
Over the years, Durden has come to realize that he was not a filmmaker in the traditional sense of the term. He enjoys telling stories and prefers those stories to be visual – filmmaker is the best term to describe this but he does not consider himself to be a filmmaker, he considers himself to be a Storyteller.”
A list of the cast members and other information can be found at the IMDB page for the film.
