Hey everybody! Thanks for taking a minute or more to learn about our project.
ABOUT THE FILM
I want to create a feature film that is titled, "Missed Connections". "Missed Connections" is a comedic romance about a man named Neal. Neal's been trying to get over his ex-girlfriend, so, he's doing what anyone would do... tricking women on Craigslist. Everything is going amazingly well, until he meets Jane, who just may be as devious as he is.
I wrote this film, and my wife and I will be playing the two leads. The script was written specifically for people that we know. It's personal. We're shooting in our house and our friend's houses. We've simplified the film making process to use what's available to us and what inspires us every day.
I've been doing comedy in Los Angeles for eight years and have been writing and performing on the biggest comedy stages in the city (The Groundlings, Upright Citizens Brigade). While keeping with my comedic roots, I really want to create something more, something deeper, something substantial. I have some insanely talented people involved with the project and I'm certain that we are going to create a truly funny film.
We plan to shoot this project on the weekends so the cast and crew can have thier weekdays, if they need to go to work or auditions. We have friends working on every aspect of this film. Our editor is going to be editing while we shoot, our producer is working in her free time, and our actors are working for practically pennies. My wife is going to be making lunch and there is a good chance if I am not in a scene, I am going to be holding the boom. This project is all about friends giving themselves to create something special. It's our passion project.
We have an amazing director, Eric Kissack (editor of "Role Models," "Bruno," and "Cedar Rapids"), a great producer, Lisa Rudin, wonderful editor, Nathan Allen, and an amazing cast. We have Groundlings, stand-ups, and regulars from the UCB stage. It really is a wonderful group. We are dedicated to produce a truly, original, funny movie.
WHAT WE NEED
Money, it's true. We plan to use the money from Kickstarter to help cover the basic costs of the film, and to pay for the two things that every great film needs: the look and the sound. If we have money left over, then we are going to pay our actors, and our crew. We are committed to making a good film. We have all of the components in place: story, crew, actors. All we need now is something to get us over the top.
