  • Umbrella of Damocles Festival Campaign

    We want to share our Indiegogo campaign/trailer for festival completion of Umbrella of Damocles:

    From Aaron Allard and James Lafeur the filmmakers of the well regarded Manos: The Hands of Fate documentary "Hotel Torgo" comes Umbrella of Damocles.

    Umbrella of Damocles is a surreal dark comedy about an accidental (yet fatal) umbrella wound to the head and a friends dying wish. The film explores the duty-bound altruism of Lawrence as he becomes the adoptive father of his slain friends put-upon wife and young boy.

    Having finished the film, we are currently in festival mode and are looking for the funds to submit our film around Canada and the United States.

    A small donation means the world to us:

    The money raised will simply go towards submission fees. We've made a plan to submit to multiple festivals over the next 6 months (Slamdance, Vancouver, Atlantic, ect.) and your money would go towards fees, a small supply of DVD's, basic postage/shipping and transportation.


    People who donate up to $10 will receive a secure online link to view and download the film and a special thanks on IMDB. $25 donations will receive the link to the film and a link to the soundtrack along with thanks on IMDB. $50 will get all of the above and two lobby cards featuring the Umbrella of Damocles poster art and a copy of the script (signed). Donations of $100 or more get you all of the above and an Executive Producer credit on IMDB.
