After meeting up at a roadside diner, two estranged brothers challenge one another to a cross-country automobile race.
what is PURPOSE BUILT about?
PURPOSE BUILT is Big Whiskey Pictures second feature film that takes place in the world of fast cars and the open road. Our goal is to shoot PURPOSE BUILT on location, across the country this summer.
...but what's the story?
Three races, two drivers, one past. Purpose Built tells the story of two estranged brothers who reconnect at a roadside diner and set off on a best-of-three series of races across the country; from rural Maine, through the ports of Baltimore, down to the marshlands of Louisiana, and out through the desert onward to Los Angeles. From start to finish, the history that drove them apart resurfaces and the future that awaits is at a finish line 3000 miles away.
who is Big Whiskey Pictures...
In 2011 Justin Eagle, Ryan Schmitz, Daniel Buscetta and Michael Lovaglio joined together to form Big Whiskey Pictures and shot their first feature film, The Search for Agent Z.
what is kickstarter?
- Kickstarter is an amazing creative community where people can help each other's dreams become a reality.
- By making pledges (donations) to a project, you gain rewards.
- Rewards range from your own individual frames of the movie that you personally made possible, all the way to being a producer and everything in between. Take a look at the column to the right for more information.
- Something you should know: Kickstarter is an all or nothing platform. If we meet our goal then, and only then, is your credit card charged and you get cool rewards and we get to make our movie!!! If our time runs out before we meet our goal, we get a big fat ZERO and you never get your rewards.
how can one person help make a movie?
- Let us state first, that none of the donations go to Big Whiskey Pictures! Every dollar raised will go into the production of PURPOSE BUILT.
- If you decide to help, your pledge will go directly towards equipment rentals, insurance, costumes, lodging, feeding a very hard working cast and crew and everything to ensure a proper and safe shoot.
- Any donation of any size helps. It can even make the difference in those last couple miles of gas we have while racing across the country.
- All it takes is one person to reach out and help inspire others.
- SPREAD THE WORD!! This one thing can make a world of difference. Please tell as many people as you can about PURPOSE BUILT and help us make our dream a reality.
THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT & PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD!!!
If you don't hit your goal do you not get anything? The money just reverts back to the person who donated ?
Kickstarter is an all or nothing platform. If we meet our goal, only then are you charged and we get to make our film. If we fall short of our goal by even a penny, then you keep your money. Your donation never leaves your account unless (and until) we me our goal.
