Synopsis: A gentle and naive Rabbi with a gambling problem finds himself as the "talent" in a 1970's adult film.
The Project: This is a short comedy about a kind-hearted Rabbi who owes money to the mob. To pay off his debt, they force him to become the star of a 1970's adult film. This project is about Rabbi Dan's first day on the set and the resulting culture clash.
Once completed, the film will be submitted to various film festivals and released on the internet. If well received, we hope to expand it into a feature film!
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
We risk running out of time. We have a limited amount of time to shoot at our primary location. We're calling on all of our resources and planning everything out as much as we can prior to shooting so that we can get all of the coverage we need to tell our story. Most of our cast and crew are volunteers. We're asking them to do a lot of work in only a few days for little to no pay. They're passionate about the project, but it will be challenging to keep energy and morale up. Coordinating and communicating effectively should help reduce problems and frustrations. Healthy food, plenty of water, and fresh coffee are a must for maintaining energy.
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
