A promo for our indiegogo campaign to fundraise our short film Rapture Us. Rapture Us is about a young hardcore Christian named Toby who finds himself "left behind" after an event that supposedly made all the Christians disappear. Toby's crisis is further complicated when an undead person named Mac crawls out from under his bed and claims to know how he can get into heaven. According to Mac, Toby must break all of God's commandments if he wants to get God's attention. The film follows the two on their journey in discovering how to cope with this strange new world by trusting each other and living life to the fullest. Throughout the story we meet Toby's atheist sister Carmen who drinks herself oblivious through the event, Brother Curtis an evangelistic preacher who might not be everything he seems, Kirk a medieval sword wielding hitchhiker who thinks he has it all figured out, and plenty of more characters doing their damndest to live their lives in the face of the apocalypse. Can Toby after a life of morality actually commit adultery, steal, or murder? Who really is Mac and why is he trying to help Toby? What does the future hold for their small town? Our film tries to answer these questions in a unique one-of-a-kind genre busting cinematic short film that isn't "faith-based" but "story-based."
