Sub-atomic budgets. Explosive ideas.
Here at Cinema Viscera, we're committed to creating delicious, devious, defiantly different cinematic experiences for a 21st century audience.
2016 has started with a bang, as we have completed principal photography on our very first feature film, the microbudget modern detective comedy Trench!
Thanks to the generosity of 230 donors, we have successfully raised the funds to complete post-production! Now we can pay some incredibly talented individuals to record our music score, clean up and mix our sound, grade our picture, wipe out stuff that isn't meant to be there with visual effects and finish our film to a world-class standard to hit film festivals and a release in 2017!
As the edit begins, and we launch into full-scale post-production, we'll be updating Facebook and Twitter pages over the next few months, as well as updates on how the whole darn thing is coming along, so please follow us here, there and everywhere:

It's been over a year since we shot it, but we're thrilled to announce that our first short film in five years, Cigarette, is complete!!! We're currently submitting it to festivals around the world!
Starring the ace Rebecca Fortuna and Ryan Heath, Cigarette is a cautionary fable from the mind of writer/director/editor Paul Anthony Nelson; a suspense drama played out amongst the wreckage of modern gender relations. When a woman invites a man into her home after a date, she treats him to an impromptu striptease -- but is this a seduction... or an evaluation? And will he fail horribly?

How did we get the confidence to get Trench up and running so quickly?
We are indebted to the Lean Filmmaking Accelerator Program, run by the lovely sibling duo of Kylie and David Eddy, which guided us through an accelerated pre-production period.
As part of this process, we wrote the first draft of the film in three weeks, and shot a "rough draft" version of the full feature (currently 83 minutes!) in two days -- as a valuable tool to see how the script walks and talks, and to gain some targeted prospective audience feedback for the next draft of the film. Then, we made some edits on the script, did some reshoots, and tested it again!
