Reality Check
Project Type: Short Film (Sci-Fi)
Funding Goal: $10,000
End Date: August 23, 2013

Chris Buchal is an independent film maker taking on the insurance industry. Sure, ok, pretty cool. Only, he’s not making an intrepid, expose documentary; he’s making a sci-fi-heavy, time traveling short … way more awesome, right?

The world of Reality Check gives insurance claim adjusters the ability to travel back in time and investigate claims as they happened. The short focuses on Elion (Cora Benesh) as she’s investigating her final claim, which will grant her an opportunity to time travel into her own past. Her path leads her down a bad trip where she’ll confront violence, love, relationships, and deceit.

Buchal, who cites Christopher Nolan, Darren Aronofsky, and David Fincher as major influences, when asked about what he wanted to bring to the time travel sub-genre, he responded: “I like that time-travel in 12 Monkeys has a loop. Looper has a loop with a twist at the end. Primer has… options. Then Looper has characters I like, and 12 Monkeys‘ plot actually makes sense. What makes Primer cool is…well… we don’t actually really know…or do we?

“So for this piece, I’d like to do a loopitdy loop within a loop, add a strong female lead, have moral decisions, and cover corporate accountability. Corporations, while made of large groups of people, are in the end composed of individuals. This is a story about an individual, and how corruption begins on a personal level.”
