About this project

'Flyway' will be an exciting & amazing adventure for our cast and crew. We're back and ready for more!

Synopsis

Flyway is a coming-of-age story about an unusual package that shows up on Jackson's doorstep. The contents of the package send him and his three friends on an exciting adventure.

What you see above is all you get! We want to keep most of the story a secret. We think it's more exciting that way.

The Production

We're getting into full production mode for the next month! We have a final script, our major location locked, and are gathering an amazing crew. We are now working on storyboards, scouting for the remaining locations, all the art (props, set-design, wardrobe, etc.), and casting. We will be holding casting calls July 25 & 26. 

We will be filming August 22-26. Our plan for post production is to be finished by the end of December. So far we have an amazing crew. More than half of the crew from our last summer film 'Phone Swap' is back and ready for more! This will make the production go smoother since we have already done a big project together.

When the film is finally finished, we still have yet to make a decision whether we want to post this online or to enter it into film festivals. There are pros and cons for both routes.

Funding

Everyone here has signed up for free. We are passionate about seeing this story come to life. However, we need additional resources to accomplish the following:

  • Transportation, accommodations, and feeding the cast & crew
  • Assembling props & set-design
  • Wardrobe for the cast
  • Building & dressing the sets
  • Gear Rental

Why Partner With Us?

We believe we have an amazing story to tell from a unique perspective. And we can't do this alone. Filmmaking is a collaborative craft. We love working together, and we want you to join with us! Not only do you get great rewards for supporting us, but you also get to be a part of creating the final product! It's an investment into giving us the opportunity to work on bigger creative projects in the future!

Thanks for partnering with us!

Risks and challenges

One of the biggest challenges for us is finding the right actors. To overcome this challenge we will continue to post casting calls and search high and low!

So far we have an amazing crew that is ready to work hard to create an incredible story!
