What We Need & What You Get

What’s It About

Synopsis – Who’s the hunter, and who’s the hunted? Lines quickly become blurred in this modern day ‘Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde’ meets ‘Dexter’ crime thriller. A group of investigators, with inner demons of their own, hunt down a sadistic abuser of women and children. But this split-personality killer is magically elusive. And seems suspiciously familiar with police procedures, as well as the investigators’ personal lives.

The Impact

 This a SAG NEW MEDIA project.  Which means that Sacramento area actors and crew will have an opportunity to participate in a union level acting production being filmed locally.
  • This improves the Sacramento film community by bringing acting and crew jobs to our neighborhood.
  • After all is said and done, this project will involve over 50 actors and crew.
  • Join the Rellik team today and be a part of bringing this professional level production to life in Sacramento.
