About this project

Rap & Rhyme is the story of two friends who dream big and think big, but life, the struggle, and the streets get in way. When hustle and ambition collide the fallout can have serious consequences...

LOST in TRANSLATION meets BOYZ N THA HOOD in this shocking and thought provoking trip into the world of the recording industry!

Shot on the extremely high quality RED Scarlet featuring a Zeiss lens package in future proof, 4K, High Definition resolution.  A key factor of our production that really sets us apart from other productions in the area!

REAL CLUBS!  REAL RECORDING STUDIOS!  REAL HOTELS!  This is a REAL MOVIE!  This feature is all about bringing the real experience of being in the life!

This project is different than the typical Kickstarter project because WE ALREADY HAVE THE PRODUCTION BUDGET!  The responsibility of making sure that this film happens isn't placed on your shoulders, like other projects, but stays squarely with us.  This film IS HAPPENING!  What your pledge will do is make an already amazing project an even better one.  We'll be shooting scenes in REAL clubs, so your pledge will allow us to secure those extra 4 or 5 club goers.  We'll be providing food (craft services) each day for the entire cast and crew, so your pledge will allow us to treat them great, instead of just pizza and soda everyday.  And with what's left over, your pledge will allow us to pay the actors and crew members more money.

Reasons to support RAP & RHYME:

-You don't like stereotypes in urban movies.

-You love independent film.

-You want to see a good movie!

Reasons NOT to support RAP & RHYME:

-Your favorite movie is Soul Plane.

RAP & RHYME is a take no chances, full throttle, unapologetic film.  Full of 'I can't believe they actually said that' moments that are bound to make you a fan.  There's no risk of supporting a project you believe in and never seeing it happen, this movie is already greenlit.  We'd love for you to get on board to support this project.  Help make RAP & RHYME BIGGER & BETTER!

Thanks for looking guys!

Risks and challenges

It goes without saying that films are difficult to pull together, let alone complete. I've compiled a solid team of talented and effective individuals who are completely dedicated to the completion of this project. We aren't just making this film as a hobby, we're working to make filmmaking our careers. My executive producer has credits on IMDB for feature length projects made in California and my camera man has been filming almost nonstop around the country for companies including Sony and Blu Electronics Cigarettes. My composer has a degree in music and his education and expertise has made him a perfect choice for crafting a quality, professional, and diverse score that is bound to set this film apart from almost any you've seen. And I've written, directed, and produced several short films and commercials. In addition to that, our already existing budget allows us to scout out quality, skilled individuals to complete our production crew.

As it's already been stated, the initial budget for this project has already been secured. As a backer, you're helping an already established project become a BETTER project. The responsibility of the film being completed does not rest on your shoulders at all. And that's why our project is different and that's exactly why you can feel good about putting your support behind us.
