Darenzia Spearheads Indiegogo Campaign for Original Sci-Fi Film, ‘Crossover’
Darenzia is spearheading an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds to produce the original sci-fi film, “Crossover.” The internationally-known Penthouse model and actress, who has appeared on The Howard Stern Show, Ink Master, and The ABCs of Death, is appealing to fans to help raise funds; the campaign offers a variety of incentives for funders, including concept art, temporary tattoos, posters, a custom latex corset, producer credits, film premiere attendance, and more.
“We’re trying to raise at least the bare minimum we need in order to do this project properly,” says Darenzia. “’Crossover’ is a science fiction action adventure film, intended as a proof-of-concept for a feature length version and potential franchise. It also functions as a complete, self-contained film.”
“Crossover” takes place in the distant future, where humanity exists in two forms: Humans and Transhumans. Humans are confined to underground sectors, where biological survival is still an option. Transhumans have permanently transplanted their consciousness into artificial bodies, in order to join society on the surface, through a transplantation process is known as the “Crossover”. The story follows a gifted young hacker named June from Sector 6, where the poor and less fortunate live out their lives, rarely granted the privilege of joining society on the surface. With help from her father, Damon, and a rebellious team on the surface, June is given the opportunity to escape the underground, by means of an illegal “Crossover.” Will June be the first to successfully circumvent the system, where so many before have failed?
“I will be playing the Transhuman persona of the protagonist, June,” says Darenzia. “As part of the pre-production phase, I will be getting life-cast of my body, as we are developing a set of cool weapons and prosthetics for my character.”
The team behind “Crossover” is impressive, including Universal Pictures and Marvel / DC artists, a stunt double from Orange is the New Black and John Wick, an SFX makeup artist from Boardwalk Empire, Elementary, and The Blacklist, a costume designer with a background designing pieces for Madonna, Alice Cooper, and Marilyn Manson, and more. Principal photography for “Crossover” is slated to begin late 2015 in New York City, shooting on the Red Epic Dragon.
