A comedy about three friends that get stuck at a remote lakehouse and must prevent their depressed friend Steve from killing himself.
After over a year of work we stand poised to complete our first feature length film, a huge step for us as a group of filmmakers and for the Independent Film community in New Orleans. Once we hit the big festivals, we can find a distributor to spread our movie across the globe and put Louisiana on the map of the Independent Film world. We now have a completed rough cut of the film but there is a lot of work left to do, and very little of it will be free. We need your help to make all the pieces come together, and you can rest assured that your hard earned dollars will go directly into our post production costs, such as:
Post Production Sound Design - The movie looks amazing, so why shouldn't it sound that way?
Soundtrack/Scoring - Music rights ain't cheap! Neither are composers. We'll need both.
Festival Submission Fees - If we submit to 40-50 festivals, at around $50 a piece... well, you do the math.
- Exhibition Copies - High quality (and high cost) tapes of the movie, as required by most festivals.
- Publicist Fees - What good is a movie if nobody goes out to see it? A key ingredient to finding distribution is to pack the theater at your premier, and we'll need to hire a professional to help with that.
- Promotional Materials - Posters, prints and other media to get butts in seats.
With your help we can really polish this film into something special! Every little bit helps, and even if you can only give a dollar or two, you can still help us tremendously by telling your friends and family about us, and helping us spread the word!
If we don't meet the goal, kickstarter does not see a dime. You, the backers, will get to keep your money.
