Dave Sims, filmmaker and storyteller at Rackspace, has launched a Kickstarter to produce a 15 to 20 minute short film set in the Joshua Tree National Park in Southern California.

“The film tells the story of a woman who while hiking in the remote desert stumbles upon an unconscious man, prompting a haunting story of survival,” according to Sims.

The Kickstarter has eight days left to run and has already raised more than $15,000, or 77 percent of its $20,000 goal with nearly 70 backers.

Sims is well known in the San Antonio technology community. He has produced videos for Rackspace for years. A lot of the support for his current project comes from “Rackers,” (the name Rackspace employees call themselves,” Sims said.

Sims budget includes all the costs to make the film for the case and crew of between six and eight people.

“Monies raised in addition to the $20,000 will cover post-production and distribution costs such as studio time to record the original soundtrack and submission fees to film festivals,” according to Sims.

Sims, a graduate of the London Film School, has produced, shot and edited four feature films and more than 50 commercials.
