Actions of family members challenge an older brother to embrace a selfless lifestyle, in caring for his younger brother.
WE NEED YOUR HELP!!!
The budget for our needs is $6000 but we placed our first goal at $3000 with the hopes of moving forward. We believe in the project and are ready to begin shooting in mid-August. We want to submit the film to festivals and potential investors so that we can gain the recognition and support to create feature films, plays and more.
All the money we raise will go into the film from Transportation, Production Design, Costumes, Location Fees, Catering, Music scoring, Additional Equipment, Post-Production, Promotions/Publicity, and submissions to festivals.
"Brotherly Love" captures a journey where actions of family members challenge an older brother to embrace a selfless lifestyle, in caring for this younger brother.
This film takes us through a realistic journey of decision making that we can all relate to. Sometimes, the decisions we make, though we mean well, could be the reason for someone else's downfall and it may take us a while to realize our mistakes. Furthermore, we could be doing well in our lives but when a family member or friend need our assistance, we have to decide how far we can go to lend a hand and that decision can get very difficult, especially when it hinders the success of our personal goals. Other times, we are the person that needs the assistance.
"Brotherly Love" brings these stories to life with hopes of making it into a feature film in the future.
HOW DO I PLEDGE?
To pledge to a project, just click the green “Back This Project” button on any project page. You will be asked to enter your pledge amount and select a reward. From there, you will go through the Amazon checkout process. Note that you must finish the Amazon checkout process for your pledge to be recorded.
IF I MAKE A PLEDGE, WHEN DOES MY CARD GET CHARGED?
If the project you’re backing is successfully funded, your card will be charged when the project reaches its funding deadline. If the project does not reach its funding goal, your card is never charged. That's why we call them pledges.
IT'S AN ALL OR NOTHING FUNDING! This project will only be funded if we meet or exceed our goal! and PLEASE we want to avoid this scenario at all costs. When you become a backer, your pledge is logged and not charged unless our goal is reached. If we are successful, Kickstarter will charge your pledge amount securely through Amazon Payments once our drive has concluded.
Is my pledge amount publicly displayed? No. Only you and the project creator will be able to see your pledge amount.
If I donate, when can I redeem the incentive?
All incentives, big and small, will only happen if our goal is met. When we do meet our goal, immediately after our deadline we will start our film and all merchandise will begin processing. Rewards can only happen after the film is completed so this will take a bit of time. Bear with us!
What if I don’t want the incentive, I just want to support?
No problem, there is a button that you can select if you don’t want the reward.
Can we exceed the goal?
YES! This would truly be amazing. Exceeding our goal would allow us to make a better film. Kickstarter will allow as much money as is given before the deadline. We have set our goal at the low end so if we are able to exceed it, it would be a dream come true and it would allow us to get the film done much faster.
Can I increase my pledge once it’s been made?
YES! Once you donate to our campaign, you may want to change your incentive reward to a different one, or increase your pledge amount. To do so, go to Kickstarter and sign in. If you go to our campaign page, the green “Back This Project” button has been replaced with a blue “Manage Your Donation” button. Click it and you can enter a new amount, or choose a new incentive.
Can I give my reward to someone else as a Gift?
YES! That’s very sweet of you. If you would like to donate to the film but give the reward to someone as a gift, go through all the normal process of making a donation in your name. For billing purposes, this action must be in your name. After our deadline, we will send a message to you on Kickstarter. (It will be forwarded to the email address you provided) We will request things like your t-shirt size and address from you at that time. Please reply with all the person’s information that is to receive the reward. We will make sure they are the person who receives the reward.
Who does the money go to?
Every penny (minus the fees for Kickstarter’s involvement) will go directly to the “Brotherly Love" film budget - i.e. Your money goes directly to the funding of this film.
I'm not in the US. Can I still pledge to projects?
Yes. You can pledge from anywhere.
How do we contact you?
