A PALE SHADOW, starring Kentucker Audley and Robert Longstreet, is shooting in four weeks. We need your help to pull it off.
*9/19 UPDATE: if you print and post our QR flyer we'll upgrade your prize, plus other brand new incentives here.
Why is our Kickstarter a make-or-break?
This campaign is our ONE AND ONLY funding source, so the next 30 days are literally make-or-break for us.
We've already bought plane tickets for Kentucker and Robert, knowing that we lose them on October 5th to features. These four days at the end of September are our one shot, so it's a huge risk we're taking.
We do this as an act of faith in you - our friends, colleagues, and new friends.
Your help will go directly to the absolute barest of essentials: renting equipment, and feeding our cast and crew. Most of whom are working for free. They believe that PALE is an important story that needs to get made.
We are so excited to form a community with you over the next month, and watch together as our passion project takes shape.
Please get in touch if you have any questions, and thank you SO much for your help in greenlighting us. Without you, we're dead in the water.
