Matawan, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/28/2014 -- Bastard is an upcoming psychological thriller from independent filmmakers Pav Trotsenko & Aggie Switala. The duo has just launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise $55,000 AUD for the completion of ‘Bastard.’ An independent producer-director, Pav Trotsenko has a wealth of experience in the film and television industry as a VFX artist. Agnieszka Switala is also an experienced producer of films and digital contents.

The story of ‘Bastard’ revolves around Nathan, an emotionally disturbed young man who has made several suicide attempts. Nathan’s childhood was a terrible one with regular emotional and physical abuse from his alcoholic father. Nathan’s life takes a rather unusual turn when he meets a local thug named Rob in a pub and seeks Rob’s help in ending his own life.

A powerful thriller-drama, ‘Bastard’ has been inspired heavily by Hitchcock's renowned thrillers and other popular movies such as The Silence of the Lambs and Se7en. With plenty of suspense, thrills, and twists, this psycho thriller is sure to keep the audience thinking even days after they leave the theatre.

The team led by Pav Trotsenko and Aggie Switala have already executed all the pre-production work and are ready to start filming. They have also completed location scouting, film poster creation and storyboarding of the film. A number of talented film professionals have also been engaged in the project.

The makers of ‘Bastard’ are looking to create something special that stands out from the crowd. The success of the Kickstarter campaign will be critical in the context of this movie because Pav and Aggie are not willing to compromise in any aspect. The proceeds from Kickstarter will be spent on gear, locations, insurance, transport, wardrobe, sets, music, post production, marketing, distribution, etc.

This Kickstarter campaign will come to an end on Sunday, January 18.
