What Is Funny Squad's Goal to make this film
Are goal is real simple. To not only make a great sports comedy but to make it about our favorite sport Kickball. Kickball is a timeless sport that we have all played at one point in our lives and it's one of those sports that no matter what happens your enjoying yourself and having fun at all times. It's a sport that has also been look down at and forgotten by the public and that's where we come in. We want to Bring Kickball back to the Public eye and show the world that this is more then just a sport or some silly kids game.
What we need Funding For!
We need funding for the Following:
1.)Pay and feed the cast & crew.
2.)Pay for Locations, Rent Camera, Lights, Sound Equipment etc.
3.)Get Uniforms for the teams and prizes for you guys.
4.)Post Production & Music Rights
5.)Submitting to Film Festivals -Sundance, Toronto, Sxsw to name a few.
6.)Money for Marcellus to spend at the strip club. Okay maybe not for that but it was worth a shot.
What If you guys don't get the Funding!
Well if we don't get the funding we need, your not charged anything at all and we can't make our movie. The biggest Risk and Challenge for us is Raising enough Funding so that we can actually show the world how great Kickball is and how amazing & big the sport really is. We want to show people how much the game means not just to us but the entire world. Kickball is a game we've all played and we all love and it's about time our story gets told and Funny Squad wants to delivery it for you.
What Happens If you do reach your goal!
If by chance we do reach our goal of 60,000 we would like to keep it going and raise more money. The more money we can raise the more great things we can do with this film. For Example:
*If we raise over $100,000 we can use the money to shoot the actual Kickball Match in a Stadium and not at a park, better cameras for shooting the film as well.
*If we raise over $250,000 we can have the best post production possible for the film by getting great film editing, sound editing, music composed and add Special Effects to the film yes i said Special Effects to a kickball feature. Trust me it will blow your mind but in order to see it we need funds.
*If we raise over 500,000 we can forget the festivals, we can distribute and market the film ourselves. Actually get the film on the big screen without having to deal with the jackasses (Film Studios) who don't know what there doing at all. And really give people all over a chance to see the film. We don't want this film to sit in the closet and you don't deserve to see your hard earn money go to waste.
*If we raise over 1 Million(Which has never happen for a film on Kickstarter) We can not only distribute and market the film ourselves but we can also make a Great Documentary about Kickball as well. And we would love to have every Kickball League Big or Small as well as all the people who donated to the film to take part in it. We can for once let our voices be heard and show the world that kickball truly is the best sport on the planet.
If we even get close to raising 1 Million I (Marcellus Cox) will personally walk through Every major Landmark in California Naked. Nothing on at all for the world to see. If that doesn't make you want to donate and spread the word i don't know what else will.
You know we wouldn't ask you to donate any money without giving you guys some amazing Gifts. It's our way of saying thank you for your love and support. were also doing it because Kickstater is making us do it so we have no choice either way. But seriously check out what you can get if you donate to the project.
*A Official Kick-Ballers Kickball
*A Official Kick-Ballers T-Shirt
*A Digital Copy of the Film & A Personal Behind The Scene Footage Video
*A Walk on Role in the film as well as a Speaking Roles.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The biggest Challenge for us is raising enough funding to get the right equipment we need to make this a Epic film. Were already attempting to shoot this on a shoe string budget but the budget we've made has allowed us to not only make the film truly one of a kind but truly one of the best film out. So with your love and support we can raise enough money and really get the ball rolling.
Without your help in raising enough funding we risk not getting the locations we need to shoot at, getting the right cameras, lights and equipment we need to make the film, giving young up n coming talent a chance to be seen and heard, and most importanly we risk not having a film at all. That's the biggest risk and challenge for us. And we don't want to let the Kickball World down.
