Libra

Donation protected
Hello everyone I’m currently fundraising for a proof of concept project called Libra.

Libra is originally written as a series following Olivia St Claire a well-respected philanthropist who struggles to balance the life of becoming an up-and-coming drug lord and serving her community. This story takes place between New York City and Stockholm, Sweden. We will follow her journey and rise to power in the criminal underworld while she grapples for power amongst New York’s elite.

The proof of concept will be approximately 30 minutes for the sole purpose of illustrating the concept, style and theme of the series. Our main goal is to create a visually captivating and thrilling film. Not only for the enjoyment of the audience but to demonstrate to producers, streaming services, investors and you the audience that this could be a successful series. The proof of concept will be sent to film festivals and producers within the TV industry both in the United States and Sweden. We're currently fundraising to achieve the set budget, so we can begin making this film.

The money will be used for:

Locations
Wardrobe
Makeup
Food
Actors
Crew
Set design
Props
Post production
Distribution

We have planned for this film to be released fall towards the end of 2023. This is a project I believe in and stand firmly by. If you're able to donate anything it would mean a great deal to me and my team! Not only will you have contributed to making this project come to life, but you are also investing in young actors and producers dream and vision. For that, we will forever be grateful!


THE SERIES

To film this entire series would require the participation of a major streaming network, which is why we opted to make a proof concept. We need your help to finance this project. So let's talk about the show and what you would be helping us pitch to producers and streaming services.

Libra

It begins with The St Claire family being the targets of an assassination attempt, which causes the sudden death of a parent. Through these circumstances, young Olivia St Claire becomes the head of the family and is forced to take over the reins of the family business, Liquid Stone Advantage. Though Olivia always knew of her family's dark secret, she opted for a different path. But now after the death of one of her parents, she's thrust into running a drug empire. With her mother's enemies looking to finish the job. Now more than ever Olivia must keep up appearances as a well-respected philanthropist while also running the business and saving her own life.

TWO WORLDS TWO DIFFERENT COUNTRIES

Welcome to New York’s High Society

Welcome to Big Apple society where the elite mingles. From the office of the State Attorney General to the CEO of Blackrock. Anybody who’s anybody will find themselves in this voluptuous world. Embezzlement, scheming and backstabbing are considered “business as usual”. But don’t get caught: deception is mandatory. ABD: Always be deceitful. Parties, events and charities are in season. All eyes are on Olivia as she is now the new face of the St Claire family after the assassination attempt. She has to adapt and figure out how to fight against corporate giants and politicians while attempting to outmaneuver State Attorney General George Cameron. Olivia now has skin in the game and learning the dance of duplicity.



The criminal underworld of New York

Don’t get caught up in the glitz and the glam of New York City as easy as it is we are taking a deep dive into the ugly truth of the city so nice they named it twice. Since the incapacitation of the St.Claire seniors, the streets are bubbling with violence and chaos. The crime rate is being driven by the lack of substances available and violence against those who are providers. Olivia is beginning to understand how her reluctance to become involved has now impacted her organizations. There is no more time for delay as the violence has landed at the heart of her charity. Olivia must step up and take control to stop the imposing syndicates from finishing off the family.


WELCOME TO SWEDEN, STOCKHOLM CITY

Where Swedish meatballs are a delicatessen and people still sing to Abba’s music. But that’s just what you’re shown on TV. There exists a hard and grimy system behind the facade. Be welcomed to take a look behind the wholesome face and ponder another side of Sweden. There are gangs that roam and terrorize the citizenry and lack of recreational centers. The immigrant population is on the rise, but jobs, training and inclusion are not. Olivia's business takes her on a trip to see her relatives after the incapacitation of a parent. There she uncovers the ugly truth about Stockholm that wounds her. Does she turn a blind eye or does she use her new empire to take control and stop the violence.


Comparisons

To give a better understanding of the entire series, think of the emotional intensity and violence of the series Sons of Anarchy/ meets Billions and Succession. Think of Billions in the sense of finical status and the cat-and-mouse game between Bobby Axelrod and Chuck Rhoades and the power struggle within the family in Succession.


Come on guys let's make an amazing film and get this sold to a streaming network.
