Los Angeles is the city of promise, glamour and fame. But it’s also the city of broken dreams, hopes lost and bitter despair.
Beachwood Drive is the street that leads to the Hollywood sign, the beacon of hopes and dreams. James Myers, a kid broken by his past, will literally go to any lengths for a taste of acceptance and wealth. He meets Natalie, an aspiring photographer. Still naive to the world around her, she uses every opportunity to show truth through her photography without grasping the consequences of the truth exposed. James' friendship with the enigmatic Houston leads him on a roller coaster ride into the world of CQ, a generous entrepreneur. CQ offers James an entrance into the world he desires, but what price will he pay? What will that world do to the ones around him?
On Beachwood Drive there is wealth and promise, trust and seduction, betrayal and redemption. "In Los Angeles, people seek to become a part of the glitz and the glamour. We don’t admit that we wander aimlessly in hopes that someone will see us and realize how extraordinary we truly are.”
Chasing your dreams takes drive but don't let go of the wheel.
Why do we want to make this film? Glad you asked!
This is a story of the universal themes of alienation and desire that we believe needs to be told. The lessons to be learned from this story speak to the very heart of the human condition. And we are passionate about bringing this story to you.
James is our everyman. He is alone, broken by the past, searching for a better future. Houston is the poster boy for the future that James is seeking. Natalie is a young artist who idealistically believes she can change the world with her art. However, in this world of glitz and glamour nothing is ever what it seems.
What makes Beachwood Drive different is the core relationship between James, Houston and Natalie. Three lost souls offer each other comfort, love, and ultimately redemption.
We put together an ambitious team devoted to seeing this film succeed. We can promise you that we will work insanely hard and every dollar you give will be used to create a cinematic experience that you will make you proud. When this film plays on silver screens around the country, you’ll be able to point to it and with us proudly say “I made that.”
In the age of crowdsourcing, you are the new gatekeepers. We ask you to partner with us and say “YES!” Say yes to a bringing a passionate, compellingly honest story to life! THANK YOU – we could not do any of this without you!!!
We have a truly great script, an incredible team and an artistic vision but without your donations, Beachwood Drive can not become a reality. Making a movie is expensive! Here's just a partial list of what your donations will pay for:
- Camera/Dolly Equipment
- Sound Equipment
- Crew i.e. cinematographer, sound mixer, gaffer, etc.
- Studio time for original music
- Feeding as many as 30 people twice a day for several days
$50,000 gets eaten up pretty quick when you're making a film! And that's just to get the footage! After that, we'll need to pay for post-production, editing, sound design, mastering, color correction, ADR, festival submission fees, and the list goes on and on! That's why we are reaching for a stretch goal of $75,000!
We ask you to support us in bringing this story to life!
Think about this: if every one viewing this page received a DVD at the $50 level, we'd blow past our goal plus our post production needs. That's the magic of crowdfunding - 20 bucks here, 100 bucks there can add up quick, but you have to donate for it to work!
Please Help Us Get The Word Out!
Whether it's $10 or $10000, your donation is HUGELY appreciated and we thank you in advance for giving. If you're not able to donate financially, we can still really use your help! Please TELL YOUR FRIENDS about this film! Post, update, tweet, email and share this campaign with as many people as you're willing. You never know who might be in the position to bring this story to life. Kickstarter has some powerful sharing tools at the top of this page, and you can use the following social media sites to connect with us and spread the word on Facebook and Twitter.
The more social media shares, likes, and tweets, the higher our Kickstarter campaign reaches, leading to global exposure and even mentions in the press!!
100 bucks is great and 100 shares can be just as powerful!
Risks and challenges
We are more than accepting of the fact that risks and challenges will come up in our production. We have an amazing team supporting us already with equipment and services! We promise that no matter what happens, we will complete this project. Beachwood Drive is our heart and soul. Our goal is to make something that you can be proud of! Reaching the $50,000 mark will show investors that we are serious. Once we get the production going, we have several investment interests that will see to its completion!
