“Green Hat Diner” is a psychological thriller that explores the phenomenon of what happens after death through the eyes of a grief-stricken 19 year old in the creepy, unsettling Green Hat Diner, a.k.a. purgatory.
Where do we begin? We're creating a thriller that takes place in 1987 with a very ambitious idea that involves a large cast, special effects, various different locations, and very involved production design.
P4/Production 4 are senior level thesis films at Point Park University. It's our last film of our college career- this is so important to us!
We need your help! Our budget is very important to this film as it's what is going to make the 80's believable through wardrobe, makeup, and production design; it's what's going to help make our special effects have you sitting on the edge of your seats, and so much more.
We also need funds for craft services, catering, transportation, extra equipment- the list goes on.
As cliche as it sounds- we absolutely cannot do this without your help. Anything helps- 50 cents, $1, $5- we always appreciate your generosity and are very thankful.
See you at the Green Hat Diner!
