All proceeds from The LAST HOUSE Party will support LHP’s current film, Neptune, the third collaborative effort between director Derek Kimball and co-writer Konkel. With producing teams in both Maine and Wisconsin, photography for the film will begin in summer 2012 on location in Maine. The film’s projected completion date is 2013.

Neptune is an exploration of an orphaned adolescent’s manic journey to self-discovery, dictated by the tragic death and disappearance of a peer and the solitude of life on a small Maine island. “Identity search is a rich and wide subject matter both Derek and I are fascinated with,” says Konkel. “With Neptune we hope to expand on the themes established in our short films I Want You To Know and The Bully, and create a piece that further explores the elements of identity search while pushing the boundaries of cinema story.”

All ages are welcome to attend The LAST HOUSE Party, however, some content in the screenings may not be suitable for children under 13.

Last House Productions is seeking funding for the first production phase of Neptune through the web-based fundraising platform IndieGoGo. The current fundraising period continues through April 13th. To learn more about Neptune, please visit our IndieGoGo page at
