    We are currently seeking funding for early production on Kickstarter: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/230353252/star-and-the-snowman A hitman known only as the Snowman. A call girl known only as Star. Not their real names, but real names are a liability in the shadowy underworld these characters inhabit. Star and the Snowman is the story of two people searching for "normal" in a world of death, betrayal, and revenge. Snowman is a killer born into a family of violence; he knows no other way of life. Star is a woman out of control in a whirlwind of drugs and sex, unable to focus a damaged mind long enough to find an exit. When Snowman's latest job threatens to rip open some very old wounds for both of them, they find themselves torn between the opportunity to escape this hellish life, and the need to finally learn the truth about a decades-old secret which began the whole nightmare. But in their world, learning the truth always comes with a heavy price, and such debts can only be paid in blood... On the surface, "STAR AND THE SNOWMAN" is a crime drama, but like the characters themselves, the film is determined to tear beneath that surface. It's a tale not only of guns and gangsters, but of the depths to which the human soul can fall, and of the courage and strength needed to climb into the light again. The filmmakers' intent is to transcend the conventions of genre, and create a universally potent drama whose bedrock will be the authenticity of its lead characters: two people struggling against a cruel world, armed only with the same hopes and dreams all of us share. And of course, a few bullets. This short film is made up of three scenes from the feature script "Star and The Snowman" written by Bill Farmer, and provides a look at our approach the film.
