Grazing Miss Albany (GMA) is an independent film that is attracting interest from representatives of A-List talent to national distributors at this early development stage. Our goal is to raise $12K in funds to help complete development which includes the following expenses: casting, legal, travel, revamp website, photocopying & media kits.
Seen through the eyes of a 17 year-old girl, Grazing Miss Albany is the story of Patrick, the troubled owner of a classic neighborhood diner, and his long-time girlfriend, Emma, as they fight to hold on to their decaying family business. The couple's future teeters on the actions of Patrick's estranged brother Francis, a priest who suffers a crisis of faith carrying more bad news for the community. Meanwhile, it's Emma's teenage daughter, Zoe Clare, who holds the missing key to the diner's fate and inspires an entire community revival.
As filmmakers, we've been encouraged to address the clerical sex abuse scandal that rocked the last decade here in the USA and around the globe. “A solid and touching story of redemption and the triumph of the good,” writes Fr. Ken Doyle, syndicated columnist for the Catholic Press. If there ever were a family film to serve as the voice of the people, Grazing Miss Albany, may very well be a movie for you.
Like a Norman Rockwell painting, we wish to cast as many undiscovered faces we can find and combine with nationally recognizable stars to reach a wide audience.
A note about producer, Larry Jackson. From Mystic Pizza to Silence of the Lambs, former studio executive in charge of production, Larry Jackson, has had the knack for 'capturing lightning in a jar' on movies of varying budgets (click on link above for an overview). The Hollywood Veteran now turns his sights on "Grazing Miss Albany," and is committed to helping launch the career of first-time narrative indie director Mike Camoin. And now you can too.
Jump in at a level just right for you.
