Zachery Barrett wants to grab life by the balls; he’s ready to be an adult, but his mother and his teachers treat him like a kid. With the help of his friend Terence, he’s going to get control of his life and cross firmly over the threshold into being a man.
From the creative team that brought you Wake; Bone Deep is the next in the series of short films from Jessica Marsh’s original play Maelstrom.
Bone Deep will shoot in October 2012 and will be directed and produced by Halifax-based actor and writer Jeremy Webb.
Nova Scotia Communities, Culture & Heritage has awarded the company a $5000 grant to go towards the creation of the film.
Despite the new grant award, and winning CBC’s Short Film Face Off, the company still needs to raise over $4500 before shooting begins in October. To that end they have created an Indiegogo campaign, where patrons can donate online and receive a variety of rewards and perks for helping the film get made.

Bone Deep will air on television. It will also be entered into the Short Film Face Off and be sent to film festivals for consideration.
"We were so blessed by our experiences with the first film (Wake),” says director Jeremy Webb. “We have a set of shorts standing by and even two features in the works, but we are taking it steady, learning the process one film at a time. We really hope that folks will see the value in supporting the arts here in Nova Scotia and helping our team to once again shoot a film."
Webb hopes that the success of Wake will encourage people to get behind Bone Deep. "Along with winning the CBC's Short Film Face Off, Wake also won two awards in the Venice Beach Love Unlimited Film Festival in California: Best Short and Best Supporting Actress for Shelley Thompson.”
