"The Honey Cooler" is an independent farce-noir feature film set to begin production in Denver, Colorado during the summer of 2011.
Gaylord Street Films is an independent producer of feature films. "The Honey Cooler" is our second feature film production. We plan on filming "The Honey Cooler" this summer. We will be filming in the beautiful city of Denver, Colorado.
Most of the cast and crew have already accepted positions. However, we have purposely left a few key roles uncast, including the female lead, in the event we are lucky enough to be able to attract name actors.
Together with the existing cast and a few volunteers we have produced some demonstration pieces to give you an idea of what the film may look like.
To see these demonstration pieces please visit: www.thehoneycooler.com
Our goal is to seek wide distribution. Whether that means film festivals, theatrical, and/or DVD release.
Questions you may have:
1. What happens if you do not reach your monetary goal?
Let's just say, we haven't put all of our eggs in one basket. We are actively seeking funding through multiple sources.
2. Can you guys complete a project, and/or possibly complete a project, with little or no money?
Yes, we have before. See www.battlefortheboot.net for the result.
3. Is "The Honey Cooler" already finished?
No, it has yet to be filmed. We have crew, actors, and a script. The question is--> what type of a budget will we have to work with?
4. What is Mumblecore?
You are better off not knowing. If you must, think of a movie stripped of everything that could possibly make it interesting. Insert whimsical 20 or 30 something year old Americans suffering from melancholic depression, discussing issues of the privileged, over a mochaccino latte or at a keg party.
5. Why Noir? and do we know that we missed the Noir period by more than 60 years?
We love Film Noir and there isn't any good reason why American can't have a second Noir period.
6. What format will "The Honey Cooler" be filmed in?
"The Honey Cooler" will be filmed with digital HD cameras. Gaylord Street Films already owns one such camera.
7. What is the plot of "The Honey Cooler"?
They were lean times. The economy had gone to crap and you could troll for work from Grand Junction to Fort Collins to Colorado Springs and spend more on gas than you’d be making. Sid Pink had been one of the best damn private dicks the Rocky Mountain State had ever seen, but now he was sitting on top of the scrap heap of Denver, licking his wounds and drinking himself into a coma. That is, until a knock at the door brings new hope and new peril. A fat-cat pharmaceutical exec’s gone missing and his wife will do anything to get him back. But is it out of love or to protect a dirty secret? Sid musters enough energy to mobilize for a far-too-infrequent payday, but winds up getting more than he bargained for as he descends into a murky world filled with Furries who want to screw him and Lucha Libre wrestlers who want to kill him. When his trusty assistant — who he hasn’t even paid in months — turns up missing, the stakes are raised even higher. Will Sid be able to shake off the demons of his past, find her, and solve the case before it’s too late? Or will old habits die hard, and him along with them? Find out in The Honey Cooler.
8. What do I get for contributing?
On the right hand side of the page you can see the different levels of contribution. They are cumulative. If you give us $300 or more you get to dress up like a furry and be in the movie. Think of "Eyes Wide Shut" with sports mascots. Remember, we are a small independent, so if you do not live in Denver, you'll have to find your own way here to participate.
9. Is Sid Pink for real?
Yes, he is the real deal. Contribute enough money and you will get to meet this extraordinary individual in the flesh. He may even let you touch his hair or wear his rings momentarily.
