A down-and-out unemployed telemarketer pretends to be a priest to get a job at an all boys Catholic High School.
Chris Cashman here, the writer, director and producer of the upcoming film Father Eddie. An independent feature length comedy film that will be shot at Saint Augustine High School in San Diego, CA this coming August. It is the story about a down and out, unemployed telemarketer who pretends to be a priest to get a teaching job at an all-boys Catholic School. The film will star Ted Lange (The Love Boat), Marshall Manesh (The Big Lebowski, How I Met Your Mother), Isabel Cueva (American Flyer) and Douglas Tait (Star Trek, Thor).
I wrote the script with comedic screen writer Chris Lusti. We were inspired to write the story based on our own all-boys Catholic school experiences. Both Mr. Lusti and myself are graduates of Saint Augustine High School. But neither of us have ever pretended to be a priests. As you can see in the Kickstarter video, this is where we got our start as filmmakers.
We have both worked steadily in the film industry and have put together a team of film professionals to ensure a strong and solid production. Many of you have probably never seen any of our work. To show you what we can do, please check out this private YouTube link to our award winning short film Goofyfoot. Enjoy: http://youtu.be/WLOjo7lNFyU
The idea for Father Eddie has been in development for some time and once the story was completed we set out to find the financing to shoot it. We will need a minimum of $40K to make Father Eddie a reality. This is where we decided to use the Kickstarter platform.
WE NEED YOU TO GREENLIGHT OUR PROJECT!
There is no question that Saints laid the foundation for what we are doing today. I'm happy to say that 5% of the proceeds from the film will go to Saint Augustine High School.
