INTRODUCTION

Juice is a short neo-noir science fiction film following a young addict's growing withdrawal and the fatal decision she makes to get high once more.

We want to share this film with as many people as possible. Your involvement, whether it be through donations or social media support, can help us to reach new audiences and continue to create as independent filmmakers and artists.

MEET THE DIRECTOR

Hello! I am Zoë Kissel, the director, writer, and editor of Juice. For the past 3 months we have been working on the pre-production stages of Juice and recently completed the filming. As we enter the film's post-production, the excitement continues to grow. We cannot wait until we are able to share our creation and hard work with the world. 

I am an East Lansing-based filmmaker, artist, and musician. I have always been a creator and film continues to be a platform of which I can share new worlds and stories. Originally from a small town south of Detroit, I now live in East Lansing, Michigan where I am pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree in Media & Information with a concentration in TV, Cinema, & Radio and a minor in Documentary Production at Michigan State University. I completed my first documentary film, Composing Our Stories, in July 2017. Through the evolution of Composing Our Stories, I have discovered my love for directing and editing, as well as the beauty of storytelling and consented voyeurism. The honor of giving a voice to those who deserve to be heard and the opportunity to tell a story that post-production presents is my passion in filmmaking.

Working on Juice thus far has been both an irreplaceable and unforgettable experience. Seeing the progress and growth of an initial concept transforming into a screenplay that transforms into an even more gratifying production with actors, props, sets, and a crew that is determined to succeed is an absolutely unbelievable feeling. It is such a great opportunity to be able to share the ideas within our minds on the screen before you. As Juice reaches completion, I know that the spirit of determination and focus established on set will continue to thrive in post-production. As thrilling as the filming of Juice was, the proud breath of relief that the cast and crew gave following "That's a wrap!" was even better.

As an artist, I embrace the spirit of never slowing down. Juice is set to be completed by November 2017. I am currently entering my senior year at Michigan State University and will be focusing on film projects in my compositing & special effects, 3D graphics & design, advanced video editing, advanced lighting and camera, and documentary design/production courses.

WHAT IS JUICE?

Juice is a short neo-noir, science fiction film following a young addict’s growing withdrawal and the fatal decision she makes to get high once more. The film takes place in the futuristic world of CityComInfo (CCI). In response to the government-halted heroin epidemic, the black market manufactures a new drug to satisfy the junkies’ enduring hunger to feel that same high. Juice is a drug that hooks people with a single injection. The high itself is much more deadly than the heroin of the past.

WHY WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT

Not only are we independent filmmakers, we are students. This means that while we are writing, shooting, and editing our films, we are also attending school.

We want to send Juice to film festivals to help extend our reach to new audiences around the globe. With each festival, a submission fee is required.

We want to make each project better than the last. Your support can help us invest in the proper cinematic equipment to make the best film possible.

And of course, we want to continue to make films. We have found our passion and a way to wake up and love what we do every day. With the support to do so, endless worlds can be created and infinite ideas can be achieved.
