A comedy/drama about two friends and their quest for missing Civil War treasure.
The Great Something is a short 30-40 minute comedy/drama film about two life-long friends, Peter and Michael, who have their friendship tested when Michael convinces Peter to go on a hunt for missing Civil War treasure.
Having found an old journal by a Civil War Army Major who stole his camp's supply money and deserted his post, Michael "persuades" Peter to go on a grand chase to find the missing money. What Peter doesn't realize is that Michael has a motive to finding the treasure. Once Peter discovers the truth about Michael's plan, it creates a rift, albeit a hilarious one, between the friends. Will their friendship survive this test? Find out by helping us get the movie made!
Pre-production is currently underway. Once funding is complete, auditions will commence in the spring with a target production start date of early Summer 2012.
While we are no strangers to making short films, we would like to expand on what we normally do and try something different and exciting.
We understand the time and effort it takes to make a movie thus the reason we are looking to Kickstarter to make our project happen. While only consisting of 3 people in our small production company, our love of making movies drives us to make this project a reality.
We have hired the best PR representative in the business...this cute kitten:
What your contributions will do
Besides get you some awesome rewards, the Kickstarter funds will help us get this project going, which includes hiring actors and crew to take part in the movie, get catering to feed the cast and crew, and for post production once the movie has been shot.
What will we do with the movie once it is finished
After we have finished post production on the movie, we plan on having a small premiere in our hometown before sending it out to festivals. Our ultimate goal is to have it shown in something like Sundance.
We plan on starting production the beginning of Summer 2012.
No, it's going to be live action. The drawings are just part of the of advertising campaign.
That's not really a question, but yes, PR Kitty is adorable.
Sorry, PR Kitty is spoken for.
It's about two friends and their quest for fame and fortune.
