After a two year long journey, I am thrilled to announce our latest feature film Psychosynthesis is now available exclusively on Amazon Prime!
As you may know, this feature was made for $25K in just 9 shooting days.
The story centers around a sickly young mother who receives a heart transplant and begins to take on characteristics of her donor. It’s very much an art-house/suspense film, and was a lot of fun to make…
Here’s a trailer to get you up to speed –
In just a few short days since the film was released, we’ve already gathered a whole bunch of reviews online. I can’t thank all of you enough who have watched the film and shared your kind words. Our entire team appreciates it more than you know!
The film is currently available in 68 English speaking countries, and more will be added soon.
If you live outside of the US, you’ll need to head over to Amazon.com and search for Psychosynthesis under Prime Video, which should bring it up.
One of the greatest assets we have are reviews from fans of the movie, so if you enjoy the film I would greatly appreciate if you could leave a rating/review on Amazon as well as IMDB. The more reviews we get, the greater our reach becomes, so I thank you in advance for watching, reviewing and sharing this little indie movie!
I’ve also rounded up a bunch of articles, interviews, videos and other content related to this film, which I think will be useful for those of you looking to make a micro-budget feature of your own.
