Inspired by a true story about a teenager who pays the ultimate price after his world is turned upside down.
A HUGE thank you to our Contributors! We're so happy with all of the support you've given us so far. This project is off to a tremendous start! Having reached our goal with more than a week left to go in our time limit, we want to illustrate that there are many more things we would be able to accomplish with your continued support.
We're setting a new 'unofficial goal' for ourselves at $3,000. With this, we would be able to do much more in the pre-production phase than we had originally planned, landing ourselves in a significantly better position to start production on the film in August.
With a $3,000 goal reached, we could afford to:
- build and design a professional website,
- host a second casting session in NYC,
- travel to Buffalo with our cinematographer and art director to scout for locations and plan our shot list,
- compile and print investment proposals as well as copies of the script for our production staff and cast,
- plus a handful of other things that will ease the process leading up to the actual shooting of the film.
Again, we can't say enough how grateful we are to you who've shown your support. Please continue to share your excitement about "Buffalo Boys" with your friends, family, co-workers and anyone you think might have interest in contributing to the project.
-The Better Stirfry Team
"Buffalo Boys" centers around a 15-year old boy who discovers that his father is not his 'real' father. This causes an identity crisis as his mother refuses to tell him who his biological father is. He and his best friend get deeper in the drug game until they are convinced to murder a 67-year old woman to collect on her life insurance policy.
The film is inspired by true events that took place in Buffalo, NY over the past decade. The film was written by Raymond Guarnieri and Mckenzie Trent and is being produced by Matt Tester, Jason Montalvo, Mckenzie Trent and Raymond Guarnieri. The shoot is scheduled for August 2012 and will be done on-location in Western New York.
We're currently seeking your contributions to get through the pre-production phase- specifically, to travel to Buffalo, NY to hold auditions on April 10th and 11th, to form an LLC, open bank accounts, file for insurance quotes, and pay a storyboard artist and graphic designer.
