The Behind-The-Scenes People

I'm Zack, a movie lover/Filmmaker residing in Austin.

This is Alex, He's also those things.

Together along With Kate Moller, we make up Half A Boy Films, our first dropkick into the world of short films. With that we decided to work on some scripts that had been lying around the inner workings of my computer. From that, you have the unfortunately titled "ASSGLASS".

The Film (ASSGLASS, we mean)

In the film "Roger - (ASSGLASS)", HANK, a misled youth, and ROGER, an alcoholic vagrant, have a meeting of the minds at an otherwise ordinary bus stop. 

ROGER, not used to being taken seriously, takes advantage of the youth's politeness by ranting about a peculiar form of insurance claims recently growing in numbers around their town.  Eventually, ROGER convinces HANK to help him in filling out insurance forms of his own, resulting in a much darker outcome than either of them could have imagined.

What We Need

Funding for the film will go towards distribution, post production work, and equipment rentals needed for production. As with any production, the crew is made up of humans with dietary needs, so some of the funding will go towards feeding the cast and crew. 

Future Projects

After ASSGLASS is completed, we hope to continue in our cinephilic escapades with our new production company: Half a Boy. With your donation, you will directly "Kick-start" this company into full swing, and we can begin the laborious process of doing what we love: make movies. Its an ambitious way to begin, but with your help, and the help of everyone on set, this will happen. Learn more at our blog:

Previous Work

Zack Booth had a lot of time on his hands, so he made these things:

Granted, "Roger" will be a much different project; there will be a whole slew of people involved, none of whom will grow jellyfish out of their nostrils (watch the clip), and all of whom will be dedicated to making this project the right way, the way you'll like it. 

So to conclude, give us your money, it'll make us super happy, and it'll make you super broke (just kidding). You'll be happy with the investment, we swear.

Love,

Half a Boy
