Superhero short film - USC Thesis


Apr 8, 2013
Reaction score
Hello, members of SHH!

My name is Kyle and I am a graduate student at USC's School of Cinematic Arts. This summer I am producing a superhero themed thesis film written and directed by my classmate Brian Ott called The Night Guardian. You could describe our movie as a cross between The Princess Bride and Batman in that we have a heartfelt story of a family reconnecting as well as flashback tales of vigilante justice seen through a child's imagination.

We start shooting at the end of July but we are in pre-production now designing our sets and costumes as well as preparing fight sequences and constantly revising the script to make it as good as we possibly can.

I have included a link to our Kickstarter campaign which went live a couple few days ago, as well as links to our website, Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr pages.



Please take a look and if you think it is something you could recommend to others we would greatly appreciate it. If you have any questions or would like to discuss it further feel free to contact me.


Hey Kyle - this looks like a really cool project, I like the ambition and the fact that you're coming up with an entirely new superhero mythology. I've followed you on all the appropriate social media sites and will be more than happy to share any updates you have! I'll also donate to your Kickstarter as soon as I get a chance, anything to see something this cool come to life!

Keep up the good work, hope it all goes well for you!
Thank you so much! We're hitting our last 10 days and it's going to be a race! We're casting and location scouting and it's really coming together!
