Love, Summer, Music, Nantucket. A classic coming of age story.
Jack Worthington has everything. He's just graduated from college, he has a job waiting for him, he's engaged to his loving and extremely wealthy girlfriend, Mika VanAdler, and he's spending his last carefree summer at his family home on Nantucket. For Jack, the future is bright...until Erin, a beautiful and mysterious musician, steps into the picture. Through his relationship with Erin, Jack ﬁnds his hidden passion for music, and his world turns upside-down. Facing oppression from all sides, Jack must make a decision: Smothering his passion to start his 'perfect' life with Mika or pursue Erin and the music career he dreams about.
The film is being produced entirely in Massachusetts. Principal photography is set to take place on Nantucket from July 21 - 31, 2013.
"Nantucket Sounds" began a year ago, when we founded Raucous Bacchus Productions. With a mission to create collaborative performance opportunities we built a group of Boston-based actors, crew, artists, and musicians to produce our first project, "The Big Funk" a play by John Patrick Shanley. With different bands playing live alongside the actors on stage each night, "The Big Funk" wasn't just a play but a multi-faceted performance event. After that, our vision for Raucous Bacchus was to embrace a style of storytelling that highlights music and narrative, to create ﬁlms and new media.
As Nantucket natives we knew that the lavish yet homey island would be the perfect setting for our ﬁrst feature-length ﬁlm. We've written a classic Nantucket summer love story, hired the George Woods Band, one the bands we worked with during "The Big Funk", to compose the ﬁlm’s soundtrack, put together an extremely talented cast and crew, and now we're ready to start filming!
"Nantucket Sounds" will be entered into the Sundance, Tribeca, Boston, Nantucket, and Palm Beach Film Festivals.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Why do we believe so much in this project?
Nantucket is our home and we are so excited to be able to engage local talent, businesses, and residents to make a meaningful contribution to the arts community and economy on the island with "Nantucket Sounds". Because of our networks and relationships, we are able to secure Hollywood quality locations and sets for little or no cost and our dedicated cast and crew will be working hard to make this film great.
What have we risked so far?
We have already invested months of in-kind work writing the film, casting and scouting locations, recording music, filming the trailer, networking, and even creating this Kickstarter campaign.
What do we need from you?
We need you to help us make this film a reality. With a micro-budget of $25,000 "Nantucket Sounds" is a true indie film. This Kickstarter campaign will pay for our actors and production team, location costs, travel and catering costs during shooting, sound recording, and festival entrance fees.
What happens if we don't raise the money?
We are dedicated to making this film, but without this money our production will suffer in big ways. Firstly our humble production schedule will be seriously derailed. Our 10 days on Nantucket for principal photography will be greatly affected limiting the entire scope of the film. Production values on the film will also suffer. Equipment, locations, sets, and daily production costs will need to be limited changing the tone and quality of the finished product.
