About

Project At A Glance

  • See every movie released in theaters in 2014
  • Compile a book at the end of the year based on my experiences
  • Set the Guinness World Record for "Most Films Seen in a Theater in One Year"

This is my ambitious project to see every movie released in theaters next year. I will provide many updates on the project throughout the year via my blog including movie reviews, movie related essays, and what it's like frequenting the theater so often. But that's just the start. . .

The ultimate goal of this project is to create a beautiful book with an entry for every theatrical release in 2014 along with my thoughts, personal stories, reviews, essays, artwork, etc. This book will attempt to capture the 2014 cinema experience in printed form & allow cinephiles to reminisce about their favorite flicks & read about those they missed.

Setting the Guinness World Record is merely a side effect, but adds another exciting dimension to the book & project as a whole. Maggie Correa-Avilés set the record for "Most Films Seen in One Year" by watching 1,132 movies. I will set the record for "Most Films Seen in a Theater in One Year".

Who Should Care

This project is for people who love movies & want to spread the love of movies. In addition to the awesome rewards on the right, you're helping me accomplish something that has never been done before. Without you this project does not happen. Without you this book will not be made. Without you this world record is not set. I'm incredibly pumped about this project, but need your support to make it a reality.

How It Will Be Done

This project will be funded if it reaches $3,000. Here's how the money will be used.

  • MoviePass (covers majority of ticket costs) - $450
  • Estimate for tickets MoviePass won't cover - $200
  • Cost to design book & print first 30 copies - $1,080
  • Travel costs for highest reward level - $1,000
  • Kickstarter fees - $270

Any additional funds will go towards stretch goals & additional publishing costs.

About Me

Now you know all about the project, but who am I?

My name is J.C. Reeves. From time to time an idea pops into my head & I can't let it go. This is how The 2014 Movie Project was born. I'm passionate about my creative projects & generally take them to what many would consider an extreme level.

  • I graduated from Texas A&M University with a degree in Industrial & Systems Engineering
  • I lived in an Airstream trailer on a goat farm for over a year
  • I currently live with my wife & newborn son in the same house as my wife's 90-year-old grandpa
  • I have a Honda Shadow 750 & love getting good gas mileage

Most importantly for this project, I LOVE MOVIES!!!

My favorite movies include 'A Clockwork Orange', 'The Departed' & 'No Country For Old Men'. My favorite directors include Martin Scorsese, David Lynch, Edgar Wright, Jean-Pierre Jeunet, The Coen Brothers, Quentin Tarantino, Tim Burton, Hayao Miyazaki & Paul Thomas Anderson.

I've written for websites like GameRant & like to blog. I'm a lifelong movie fan & have many stories to tell. This project is a personal dream & I will be investing hundreds of hours into making sure it's successful.

The Fine Print

For the purpose of this project, "every movie" refers to all widely released movies & as many limited releases as I can manage.

Final Thought

Please help support my journey & follow me through a year of ups & downs both inside & outside the theater. Together we will celebrate cinema in a way that has never been done before!

Risks and challenges

Any project this ambitious has some risks. I will be doing all of the work myself & the load rests solely on my back. That said, I'm confident we can make this a success. All backers will be kept up to date on any setbacks or delays should they arise. Also, I'm willing to contribute my own funds should anything go over budget.
