Greetings valued Dan's Movie Report readers. Director Russ Emanuel has informed me that his brand new short film 'Staycation' is looking for finishing funds. As many of you know, I hardly post about Indiegogo or Kickstarter campaigns, but I can vouch for Russ, Staycation is already produced and they are looking for funding to complete the project, and eventually submit to festivals. Russ has a strong track record and his films 'The Assassin's Apprentice', and 'Occupants' have garnered dozens of awards and been screened at festivals all over the globe.

Lead virologist Edward Bellows plays tête-a-tête with hard-hitting journalist Grace Baxter as the world collapses under the weight of a global pandemic. She holds nothing back as she fires question after question, seeking answers from the beleaguered professor. Meanwhile, a couple Matt and Cathy, stuck in lockdown and separated between continents, spend some belated quality time via webcam toasting to foreign brandy and reminiscing on the past.
'Staycation' expands upon the idea set about by “Routine”, opening up the narrative into a bigger world with higher stakes. It’s also the first 25% of an eventual feature film which is already written. “Routine” and “Staycation” builds a world that easily presents itself with great franchise possibilities within the popular science fiction/horror genre. “
I can attest to the fact that Russ's short film 'Routine' starring Paige Laree Poucel is quite an entertaining set up, the 4 minute film has a scope that needs to be expanded upon. 'Routine' IMDB: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt12385422/
