Kenny Gee (no, not the sax player), the writer and director of the short film “The Body” needs your help. He came up with a clever way to raise funds for his short. Somewhere in Singapore, a bunch of thugs have kidnapped him and held hostage for ransom. He’s getting tortured until he can come up with the money $20,000. Watch the video below.
Here’s more about “The Body” by Kenny Gee:
The Body is a 20-minute narrative short film set in Singapore involving two crooks, one young and one old, who have to learn to work together to dispose of a dead woman that’s turned up in one of their living rooms. It’s a story that’s deeply rooted in the crime genre, which has held a special place in my heart ever since I saw movies like Pulp Fiction and Fargo as a kid. It’s been something of a lifelong dream of mine to tell a story like that in Singapore, even if it means inventing a Singaporean criminal underworld from scratch. We don’t get many crime films here made like that – gritty, dark, and brutal, but also funny, and eccentric–the kind of film that makes you wonder why you’re smiling when terrible things are happening on screen. With your help and a little bit of luck, The Body will be one of those movies.
