A short film about a Magical Salesman who sells shooting stars door to door. His business is on the rocks... right next to his faith.
What we're doing:
We are making movies!! Well... we're trying too... but first we need funding.
The Film Imaginarium is looking to raise enough money to fund their debut short film "The Shooting Star Salesman".
Our 15 minute short tells the story of a Magical Salesman who sells shooting stars door to door. Unfortunately, for the Salesman, the times are changing. Business isn't what it use to be, nor is his faith in what he does.
If funding goes as planned, pre-production will start mid-november, production in december, and post production wrapping in the beginning of 2011.
Why we're doing it:
The Film Imaginarium is comprised of a handful of individuals who have spent many years in the film industry. We've helped see many projects to fruition, and are now ready to step out and take a chance on ourselves, our passions, and our dreams. The Shooting Star Salesman is a prime example of the unique and creative approach we have towards film and story telling. It's a heart warming and inspiring story that may have you thinking about shooting stars like you never have before.

What happens if the money isn’t raised in time?
Unfortunately nothing. If our goal isn’t met before the deadline, no money changes hands and no movie is made. We want to avoid this scenario at all cost!
Can we exceed the goal?
YES! What an amazing problem to have. Kickstarter will allow as much money as is given before the deadline. With such a unique concept, the creative possibilities for this film are endless. Every dollar above and beyond $7,500 will increase our ability to achieve our creative vision.
How do we contact you?
Glad you asked! You can contact us directly at email@example.com. We check it. We will get back to you. We promise!
Are donations tax deductable?
Unfortunately no. Donations are raw gifts. Non-tax deductible.
If I donate, when can I redeem the incentive?
All incentives, big and small, can only happen if our goal is met. If we do meet our goal, immediately after our deadline we will start to manufacture and ship all physical products directly to you. It will be our priority to schedule the more personal incentives as soon as possible. You will hear from us. (More on this as we get closer to our deadline)
Who does the money go to?
Every penny (minus the fees associated with the Kickstarter program) will go directly to The Shooting Star Salesman's movie budget - i.e. Your money goes directly to the funding of this short film.
Any other questions? Just ask us. We would be happy to answer them.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,
The Film Imaginarium Team
