PR9.NET November 06, 2014 - Los Angeles, California - What would you do if you face something beyond your understanding? If someone you loved disappeared without a trace? Would you look for answers? That is the premise on which AWAKENING, Alexander Rodriguez new and ambitious film is based on, and he plans to film it in Puerto Rico.
Alexander and his team has also launched a Kickstarter Campaign to finance the film budget. Kickstarter has been the indie crowdfunding platform of choice for independent filmmakers that connects the makers and the audience directly, allowing the audience to support with their money the projects they believe in and like to see being made.
The films is about Cassandra, a young woman that is a PhD student, in a scientific quest to solve the mysterious disappearance of her mother that occurred when Cassandra was still a little girl. During her unremitting investigation, she crosses path with Richard, a former US Air Force Security Forces who claims to have had a close encounter with an UFO in an Air Force base. At that moment, audiences will see this heroine and partner joining forces to get to the bottom of the mystery. In their search they will find a hidden secret that will uncover a greater and unexpected and possibly threatening truth that will change their lives and their vision of the world surrounding them.
"What motivated me towards the making of the film" said Rodriguez "is my passion for science and and fiction and its possibilities of playing with reality and the extraordinary". Rodriguez also mentioned an anecdote when his father told him stories? "When I was growing up my father used to tell me extraordinary stories about conspiracy theories, abductions and unresolved mysteries. Once he stopped at a house and told me that the owners were abducted, and never found, rumors saying it was by UFO??and so I was inspired to write AWAKENING"? remembered the director. ?
AWAKENING is a feature length Science Fiction film made independently. One of the plans of the makers is to come to the Island of Puerto Rico and feature the beauty and richness of the island as well as the UPRM Facility as a top?tier investigation place, Having the observatory, the physics department, among other great locations. Also Alexanders plans to use local talent as his cast and crew for some of the roles and other crew positions, rendering this film as truly made in Puerto Rico.
"I always wanted to make a film locally in my dear Alma Mater, Therefore this is a great chance for me to make a story about science and fiction almost veritable and enjoyable" ? explained Alexander as he said he wanted to use use the serviced of his colleagues in the island.
"I think is a great opportunity for film students, and other non?student talent that are interested in film to work on a production that is different, indie, with a limited budget but a great heart at the core of a great story"? he told.
Alexander is an MFA Student in film at New York Film Academy (NYFA) in Los Angeles, CA, but he also majored in a BA in Physics degree at the University of Puerto Rico Mayag?ez Campus (UPRM), who during his time there also did the extracurricular Film Certificate.
