A new video from the director:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mgoUT8oOxQM

Did you know that over 50,000 feature films are made every year?  Did you also know that very few ever get a wide audience? 

Given the amount of passion, talent and creativity that goes into every film, it is a crying shame that so few get seen, and have the chance to succeed.  

We ask your help so that our film "At Granny's House" get's the chance to find it's audience--we are confident that with your help, it will! 

To see the official trailer of At Granny's House, view the video above or please visit our web page:

http://www.grannyshousemovie.com/

You're busy, so here's the bottom line: We are just about to finish a really cool movie, a suspense thriller with an edgy twist ending, and we need your help to have the movie gain a wide, global, audience. We have a strategy ready to roll to make this happen, but need your $ and support to get started.  Please watch our video, donate as much as you can, and spread the word to your friends, family and colleagues.  Be a part of something special. Thanks!

"At Granny's House"  is about what happens when a young lady (Rebecca) moves in to be caregiver to Granny, a little old lady in a rural USA midwest town.  

Rebecca turns out to have her own dark secrets and agenda, and these play out as the movie develops, especially when Ted Steiner comes to visit Granny's house.  

A typical Midwest house. A sweet little old lady. When a caretaker moves in to help out, Granny's House becomes a macabre place of death - and love.

The ending will knock your socks off!   

Good question!  Here is the easy answer--because we wanted YOU, our audience, to be a part of bringing the movie to the world.  Who better, after all, than the fans?  You believe in us, we believe in you!  

We have a variety of cool rewards at many different donation levels, but we just want you to give what you can--every donation counts!

Whatever you donate, your support is greatly appreciated, and will be wisely used.

We take very seriously the responsibility you bestow on us when you donate to our project, and are very proud that we have come up with a budget that keeps overhead costs, such as Kickstarter and Amazon payments fees, to a bare minimum.

In addition, we believe our four-fold strategy of getting AGH out to the world will be effective in gaining our film the large audience it deserves:

First, premieres in Colorado and Los Angeles to start the ball rolling.

Second, submit the film to a select number of film festivals to increase the film’s exposure.

Third, a week-long theatrical screening in Los Angeles will get us reviews in both the LA Weekly and the LA times, papers which feed other newspapers around the country, dramatically increasing the profile of At Granny’s House.

Finally, during all of this, a focused and intensive marketing campaign to take advantage of the film’s notoriety in an effort to attract film sales agents and global distributors.

A successful campaign will finance this strategy, the first elements of which will begin with the World Premiere of "At Granny's House" in Holyoke, Colorado, near where the film was shot, May 30 and 31st.

In addition, once we are funded we will immediately move to schedule our week long theatrical run in Los Angeles, hopefully as soon as August.

Here are just a few members of our outstanding team. We were immensely blessed by the quality of our cast and crew!

Bill Oberst, Jr (Boarstag)

Known for a Daytime Emmy Award-winning performance in Take This Lollipop and a ratings-winning role on CBS-TV's Criminal Minds, Bill Oberst Jr. is an American actor of German descent. His gentleness and his interest in things spiritual in real life are sharply at odds with his on-screen persona, where professionally he is known as the "King of Indie Horror".

The Season 9 episode of the CBS-TV series Criminal Minds, "Blood Relations," in which Oberst guest starred with Adrienne Barbeau and Tobin Bell, was the evening's most-watched program on TV on its April, 2014 premiere. CBS later included Oberst's character in their list of Criminal Minds' "14 Most Notorious Serial Killers."

He is perhaps most widely-known internationally as the face of director Jason Zada's Take This Lollipop, awarded a 2012 Daytime Emmy Award by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in the category of "New Approaches-Daytime Entertainment." Oberst has been seen by over 100 million viewers worldwide as an online stalker in the interactive application for Facebook users.

Ashlee was a vital piece of our production team, and she plans on graduating high school in May of 2016 and go straight to University of Northern Colorado to pursue my dream of teaching music. Ashlee first got into acting my freshman year of high school by being a part of the production of The Music Man. I have continued being in school plays and musicals. At Granny’s House is my first major film. Johnny Depp and Elle Fanning are just two of my favorite actors.

 Thanks for checking out our film, and our campaign. We really appreciate your time and attention, and hope you donate and spread the word!

Too many indie films are finished, but never seen--and that is a shame, given all the hard work and creative talent put into them. 

We believe this campaign to bring the world to Granny's House will change that for our film, and may serve as a model for indie films to come.

All the best--and thanks again!

Les, and the whole AGH team

Risks and challenges

One of the hard parts is already almost done--filming and completing a movie. The next hard part, getting it seen, is what this campaign is all about, and we appreciate your support.

Bottom Line: when our Kickstarter campaign succeeds, the film "At Granny's House" will have a great chance of gaining a large audience, benefiting not only our cast and crew, but the movie view audience worldwide. And that means you!

We promise to use your money wisely, and deliver all rewards fully and in as timely a basis as possible.

Thank you,
Les, and the entire AGH team
