Thank you for subscribing to our weekly Juice Production Newsletter! Support for our film on any scale is much appreciated. You being interested in what goes on behind-the-scenes helps us to spread the word about our film and reach all audiences possible.
For new subscribers, welcome!
I’m Zoë Kissel, the director, editor, and writer of the upcoming short film, 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.
For returning readers, thanks for sticking around! Enjoy Juice Production Newsletter #9.
We are beyond excited to announce that Juice is complete and available for your viewing pleasure! It is a surreal and bittersweet feeling to finally have the film finished. After working on Juice for the past eight months, it has become a major part of our lives. Releasing our art into the world is both a scary and magnificent feeling. We are so proud of all we have learned and accomplished through Juice and are even more inspired to make our next film. Thank you for your support, we could not have done this without you.
