A short film about an old man (and former vigilante) who has lost faith in his own ability to be a hero.

THE STORY

THEN & NOW opens in the 1960s when Kenneth Kurtmann's journalism career has taken off thanks to the success of his alternative profession as vigilante hero, the Black Cowl.  His fame is short lived, however, when a motorcycle accident ends both of his careers.  Without the Black Cowl, the public loses interest in Kenneth's stories.

The bulk of the film occurs thirty years later in the 1990s, when Kenneth has given up on himself and has become a recluse.  However, an unexpected intruder interrupts his self-imposed isolation.  A young boy who has lost something important asks Kenneth to perform a simple task: find the Black Cowl and enlist his help.

THE BUDGET

The money being raised for this film will go into all the production costs.  We are working very hard to tell this story as authentically as we possibly can.  There are many props, including magazine covers and comic book art, that need to be made for this film.  We have also spent a lot of time and resources on our Black Cowl costume.  Please enjoy the tech demo of the costume below:

REWARDS

We are offering many cool rewards for your donations including a DVD/Blue Ray with bonus features and some of the artwork from the film.  Here are some of the "THEN & NOW" magazine covers offered as rewards:
