About

Hello Everyone!

I'm planning to produce and direct my first feature film, THE PRIZE GUYS, which will shoot in Philadelphia from June 2012 through August 2012. The money I'm raising through Kickstarter will finance the entire project.

THE PRIZE GUYS is a coming-of-age comedy drama that journeys through the transformation of an adversarial victim-bully acquaintanceship into a genuine friendship.

As the friendship between high school sophomores Tommy (the home ec chef) and Matt (the super jock) develops, they each face many obstacles and go through their respective individual journeys as well.

The story balances humor with the more serious moments to simultaneously entertain and enlighten the widest audience possible.

Once the project has been funded, preproduction and casting on the film will begin. I look forward to keeping the Kickstarter community informed of our progress throughout the months of preproduction that precede the cameras rolling in June 2012, and beyond - through our release in 2013.

Ultimately, if this movie touches and changes some minds and hearts, it will have done its job, and we can all feel a sense of collective accomplishment for getting it to come to fruition. 

Thanks! :)

Anthony
