Mary Testa, one of the actors in our film, has a new Off-Broadway play opening TONIGHT in New York City! That's her in the photo here. Please go to the link below and watch the video at the bottom of her page. Congratulations Mary!
We are only 7 days from our deadline to get funded! Tomorrow we meet with our assistant director, Stephanetta Bingley, to start making a shooting schedule. We've also cast actress Pamela Shaw (see photo below) for a featured role as the lovely airline attendant who refuses to let our hero on the plane, thus missing his flight to his reunion. If we don't make our goal in 7 days, we will "miss our flight" to make this movie! We really need your help spreading the word any way you can, on Facebook, twitter, or whatever. Also, if you can all increase your pledges just a little bit, that will help greatly. It's very easy, just go back on Kickstarter and press the BLUE button labeled "MANAGE YOUR DONATION". We've comes so far already. Let's make this exciting film happen!
Thank you for all your help,
Wow. 124 backers! We are so thrilled with how many of you have shown your support for this exciting project. You are our biggest asset! A few of you have actually INCREASED your pledges! We love that! Even just a small increase from all 124 backers would make a big leap toward reaching our goal which is only 10 days off. It's going to be tough but I am convinced we can do it! This weekend we meet with our assistant director, Stephanetta Bingley, to break down the script and create a shooting schedule. We will also bring on a line producer to keep us on budget. We want to start shooting the first part in February, mostly interiors we can do regardless of the weather outside. Then we will regroup and shoot exteriors as we get into spring (the story is set in spring). Let's do this folks!
Thanks again and stay tuned!
We are pleased to announced that actor Michael Leydon Campbell has been cast as "Jordan", the main character in "Looking for the Jackalope"! Michael has appeared in numerous films including Ed Burns "Sidewalks of New York", and as the lead in "Bob Funk" with Rachel Leigh Cook. He has many T.V. credits including "House M.D., "Boston Legal", "The West Wing" and "Law and Order". Michael's combination of comedic actor and vulnerable romantic lead makes him perfect for our hapless love-struck hero.
We just got the great news that a major camera and lighting equipment rental house wants to contribute camera and lighting equipment to our film for free! This is HUGE! What does it mean for you? More bang for YOUR bucks. A better looking, higher production value movie that YOU helped produce! Thank you all again for your generous contributions!
