Two kids from the ghetto return to the suburbs after a night of drinking and partying in Paris. They hail a taxi to get take them home, 15 kilometers outside of Paris. When the time comes to pay the driver, the two guys decide not to pay and make a run for it. It was neither the right taxi nor the right driver to mess with. The taxi will hunt them down through the night. He will never let them go, be it physically or mentally...they are going to pay.
"Night Fare is a chase, the man hunt of an anti-hero chasing two young guys. Thanks to this driver, our two guys will learn more in one night than in 30 years of existence.
With this effective thriller, I want to create a movie based on a simple concept. With defined and alert direction, a tight script, I want to subtly move away from the clichés to highlight the characters and their emotions, bringing more depth to the story than one could imagine. This mix, going full force, with a numerous variations in rhythm will continuously revive the narration. The atmosphere of this thriller will at times lean more toward romance, simply and naturally, at times more toward an action film with original fight scenes (the opposite of what can be found on screens today) and at other times, quite gory with surprising shots that become more and more violent. Our driver reveals the unease of our daily lives, the violence and the perversity that looms above us. He lurks, he hunts, he’s always where we don’t expect him. As a man and a father, the loss of these values is something that terrifies me. I want to create a movie of a specific genre blending both style and substance, the basic ingredients for good cinema."

This movie is an ambitious one but its budget is reduced compared to movies normally produced in France. Crowd funding is an opportunity for us to fill the missing part of our budget to finance the stunts and spectacular scenes but also to begin giving Night Fare a life by already presenting it to its future audience. An audience that will participate in its making and therefore will be attached to the film. Come and live the exciting adventure that is Night Fare and help us make this movie happen. We need you !
Reaching our 50 000 eurosgoal allows to ensure the budget to shoot spectacular stunts we have planned for the film.
- 75 000 eurogoal : with this goal, we add an immense visual value to the film with additional technical material to be used during the last action scene.
- 100 000 euro goal : this major goal allows us to add an extra week of filming and reintegrate scenes that we had to cut due to funding.
- 125 000 euro goal : within our current budget, we have an original musical score recorded for the movie. Reaching this goal would allow us to contact well-known groups and artists during post-production and punctuate certain moments of the movie with their specific music.
- 150 000 euro goal : in addition to everything noted above, a great wrap party with an open bar will be organized with the crew and everyone who participated in the Ulule campaign, which will be the object of a short documentary on crowd funding and will be available on the blu-ray version of the movie.
