About this project
A TOUCH OF STARDUST is an uplifting, award-winning romantic comedy. A heartbroken romantic gets a second chance to marry the woman he believes is his fate.
The concept was to make a FUN, lighthearted, romantic comedy, that was commercially appealing, and to throw a twist of faith in. An uplifting comedy with something for everyone.
The film is COMPLETED, and now the POST-PRODUCTION piece begins. After a test screening, we realized we have something special. Now we want to perfect it, to get it in front of as many people as possible. Your support allows for us to perfect the final product, and then get it to the people - festivals, on-demand, DVD, maybe even traditional distribution.
"If I only knew then what I know now." Everyone has heard this at least once. What would we do with a second chance to correct a mistake, knowing what we know now? For DAVIS MILES, he gets that divine second chance. The screenplay has been honored at several film festivals, including BEST SCREENPLAY at the 2017 Christian Film Festival, and Official Selection at the 2017 International Christian Film Festival. It is now beginning to pick up accolades at mainstream festivals, which will be announced soon.
Shot in Cincinnati, OH over 6 months this fall / winter, A TOUCH OF STARDUST took advantage of the eclectic suburban neighborhoods of Cincinnati and the surrounding areas. The goal was to take our amazing cast, drop them in a Normal Rockwell type small town setting, and tell a romantic fairy tale.
Sometimes the term "faith based film" can scare folks away, the perception being that it will be heavy, or preachy.
The concept here was to take a character who had strong faith, as a characteristic, and drop him in the middle of a commercial concept. The hope was that taking this route allowed an audience to access the pieces of the production they connected with - the man of faith, the supporting characters, the plot, etc. We wanted to make a FUN movie, that was funny and romantic, but also connected to a higher power.
A TOUCH OF STARDUST has a 90's vibe. I grew up watching those amazing films and shows of the late 80's and early 90's - Coming to America, Strictly Business, Boomerang, Livin' Large, A Different World, Martin, Doc Hollywood, etc. This movie is very much in the vain of those classics.
THE CAST and CREW:
We assembled an amazing cast of locally based actors to bring the story to life. YOSIAH JOHNSON (Miles Ahead) and SAMANTHA RUSSELL (Afterman, Marauders) are among the amazing cast who bring this story to life. Director Antoine Baptiste (The Unfortunate Faces of Portia Dupree) brings it together. The result is a fun fairy tale for all audiences.
We were blessed to have some of Cincinnati's best local musicians contribute original music to the film - Kyle English, Jess Lamb, Freedom Moore, Yosiah Johnson and more.
Risks and challenges
The film is completed. We now just need some help getting over the hump with post production. We want to perfect the color and the sound. We may want to pursue additional music for our amazing soundtrack.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
