About this project

What Is the Film About?

Logline: A hard-drinking sixteen year-old girl tears through her unforgiving southern town in attempt to hunt her sister’s killer and clear her brother’s name

Synopsis: Expelled from high school, CJ spends her days muling for the local meth dealer and guzzling alcohol at "the hideaway," her private field far removed from the center of Newborne. She imagines herself as an Eastwood type, a desperado on the fringe of society with one goal in mind: to leave both her town and her past behind. 

With her mother in prison, CJ's younger sister Sarah has assumed the maternal role in trailer park home as the caretaker of their brother Kevin, a returning war veteran struggling with an untreated case of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Kevin's best friend Crawford, a fellow ex-marine, also looks out for the family by hiring Kevin on construction jobs and ensuring CJ stays out of trouble. 

On the eve of the biggest storm in the town's history, CJ is brutally assaulted by her drug dealer and decides that it's time to finally leave Newborne for good. But when Sarah is found murdered in CJ's hideaway and her brother is convicted of the crime, CJ makes the choice to forgo her chance at escaping her past in order to seek justice for her sister and defend her family. 

But, as CJ fights against the onslaught of the storm and wades deeper into the town's most corrupt and dangerous hideouts, the suspects begin to pile up, and CJ wonders if the truth is better left buried.

What Is the Status of the Project?

Newborne County is partially funded and currently in the process
of casting. The film has a planned start date for the first week of September 2011. For updates on the fantastic individuals we are casting and crewing up with, you can CLICK on the UPDATES tab located at the top of the page.

What Happens If We Don't Reach Our Goal?

This film is happening! As mentioned previously, we have already
achieved a significant portion of our proposed budget. However, if we
don't reach our kickstarter goal, everyone's donation on kickstarter
will be refunded and this film will take even longer to make in the
manner we have dreamed. We will have to delay our start date to
give us the time to raise funds for the expensive rentals required for our
cinematic vision for Newborne County.

$15,000 is the minimum amount we're asking to kick-start our camera
and art department. If we surpass this goal, AWESOME! The extra
funds will be used wisely to continue to aid in our pre-production
costs.
