A self-centered adolescent solicits free guitar lessons from a socially awkward boy and changes when he makes an unexpected connection.
Why We Need Your Support
If there's anything we've learned in class and from our past production experiences, it's that you need a lot of funding to make a great film! Luckily, Santa Clara University provides all of the equipment we absolutely need for filming and editing, so we're using your gifts for the other essentials. We need you to complete this project and make it phenomenal.
We need help transporting actors, providing craft services, acquiring props, and obtaining location permits. We need DVDs to copy our film to and we also need funds for distributing our films to film festivals, which is the biggest and most important part of all.
Another prominent consideration is that if we get enough support from you we'll be able to pay actors, which means we'll have incredible performances, which means we'll have an even more successful film.
We can make a good film, or we can make an outstanding film...and we need you to achieve the latter. We want to make a film worthy of various festivals around the country and you can be a part of that! Anything counts and everything is appreciated, so thank you for giving us this chance together.
About Our Film
Nowadays, it seems as though there are more and more self-centered adolescents scampering around, and although we can all probably agree that most of their concerns are not monumental, we all hope that they will soon grow out of their juvenile ways and learn what it means to be an adult defined by meaningful values.
The main character in our film, Grady, is an extreme example of an overly confident senior in high school who wishes to define himself and become part of a rock band in order to shine in the spotlight. Unfortunately for him, he’s terrible at guitar, but due to his overly inflated ego, this isn’t enough to stop him from thinking that a few lessons will spark his “natural ability”. However, because he doesn’t have the money to take such lessons, he is forced to resume his usual routine of smoking pot and surfing, but who would think that surfing would actually lead him to free guitar lessons?
Enter Will: a socially awkward and lonely boy who suffers from a mental impairment that affects both his short and long term memory, as well as the way he interacts with people. After soliciting Will for free lessons, Grady intends to trade friendly company for musical knowledge, but he is instead given a glimpse of the traumatic secret behind this young man’s mental handicap, forcing Grady to examine his own frivolous desires, as well as what it really means to “do something important”.
