Denver filmmakers seek funding for movie with furry subplot
And the script features furries.
The film, entitled The Honey Cooler, is to be shot over the coming Summer and has the following synopsis:
They were lean times. The economy had gone to crap and you could troll for work from Grand Junction to Fort Collins to Colorado Springs and spend more on gas than you’d be making. Sid Pink had been one of the best damn private dicks the Rocky Mountain State had ever seen, but now he was sitting on top of the scrap heap of Denver, licking his wounds and drinking himself into a coma. That is, until a knock at the door brings new hope and new peril.
A fat-cat pharmaceutical exec’s gone missing and his wife will do anything to get him back. But is it out of love or to protect a dirty secret? Sid musters enough energy to mobilize for a far-too-infrequent payday, but winds up getting more than he bargained for as he descends into a murky world filled with Furries who want to screw him and Lucha Libre wrestlers who want to kill him. When his trusty assistant — who he hasn’t even paid in months — turns up missing, the stakes are raised even higher. Will Sid be able to shake off the demons of his past, find her, and solve the case before it’s too late? Or will old habits die hard, and him along with them? Find out in The Honey Cooler.
The producers are seeking financial backers to fund the film, and various incentives are being offered for donations. A $1 pledge will get you a "Special Thanks" in the film's closing credits, while those who have "always secretly wanted to dress up like an animal and do strange things with other people in animal costumes" can pledge $300 and appear in the film, "playing a furry" in the story's "big mansion scene".
