About this project

What We Are Doing

Well, fellow ragamuffins, we are raising money! We are making a full length narrative feature film based on the true story of Rich Mullins.  We have some funds, and we need more funds before we can begin shooting. Our goal is to start shooting this summer, July 5th, 2011.  The director, and producers are like many of you...Our lives have been impacted, inspired, challenged, and changed by the life, music, and legacy of Rich Mullins. Everyone that heard Rich's music, knew of his life, or are discovering him for the first time seem to have a unique reason why his life impacted them... Maybe it was his music, something he said, they way he lived, his authenticity, or his pursuit of God...For us, simply put, we have been audience members to this ragamuffin's life, and it's changed us, and we want to give others the same opportunity...that's why we are making this movie...and we'd love you to be a part of it.

Facts and other rag tag info:

When and how do I get my rewards?

If and when funding is completed we will work on contacting everyone, and get to work as soon as humanly possible! We might need to shoot the movie first and edit it before we can get it to you:-) As far as all the other incentives once funding is complete we will do our best to contact you as soon as possible, with questions regarding t-shirt size, address, etc...

How long do I have to Pledge?

Just until our goal of 90 days past our launch date. If we don't make our goal, we get nothing....

How can we contact you?

That's sweet. about you email us at We'd love to answer any questions you have etc...

How else can we help?

Honestly, spread the word. Tell people about this kickstarter page, and our other social networking sites:

No, I else can we help?

Well, if you want to go above and beyond, please contact, we are in the process of gathering a grassroots marketing team to get the word out now, and even more as the closer it gets to when the movie comes out!  Actually, Ed loves emails. Email him twice.

Is this a movie with actors or a documentary?

We know it's a bit confusing because of our teaser trailer, but YES this is a movie with actors, and a script, and a craft service table...the whole bit. The footage from the teaser trailer comes from the time we spent on the road doing research on Rich Mullins.

Will there be a documentary from the research footage?

Maybe one day, but right now our goal is the narrative feature film....also, stop what you are doing and email ed: Thank you. Ed, thanks you....but in doing research we have met with Rich Mullin's Family, the Ragamuffins, James Bryan Smith, Brennan Manning as you can see in the teaser trailer, Mac Powell from Third Day, Newsboys, Michael W. Smith, Amy Grant, members of Zion (his original band), and other artists and friends that knew Rich well. And were still not done, were meeting with others....we get to meet with Shane Claiborne this summer (can't wait!)!!!!

Can we exceed the goal amount?

Yes! Kickstarter allows us to raise as much as we want! So very cool of them! Which is great because the more we get, the more that helps with the movie.

Can I give my incentive as a gift to someone else?

YES! When we get in touch with you for information regarding your address or where to send your incentive...etc...just let us know who you'd like the reward/incentive to go to.

Can I increase my pledge amount after I already pledged?

Yes, absolutely. You may want to donate more, or get a larger incentive/reward. In any case. Sign into Kickstarter again go to our page, then hit the button that says "Manage your donation" that button and you can enter a new amount, or change your incentive.

Is the movie a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization?

No, unfortunately the movie is not.

What does the money go to?

All of the money goes to the budget of the film and making this film a reality.

Is the budget of the movie $90,000?

No, actually, it's way higher, but we have some really cool and awesome investors that are...well investing! But we do need more funds...thats where you come in!

Lastly, Thank You!

Sincerely, thank you so much for even taking the time to look at this Kickstarter page, and support. Even if you couldn't pledge anything...Your support, prayer, and encouragement is well needed. This movie means a lot to us personally, and we hope that when its all said and done...that this movie will give an audience who knew Rich, and who will be introduced to Rich at least a glimer of what Rich was onto, that "reckless raging fury."
