UPDATE!!!! THANK YOU, NOW LET'S KEEP IT GOING!
OUR SUNSCREEN FILM FESTIVAL LIVE PODCAST! Check it out below!
In late 2005 Tom Thompson decided to make a feature film called “Waste of Space”. He put up every penny he had in savings, refinanced his house, and took out a second mortgage to do it. Since shooting the movie in 2006, he has endured the failure of his company, serious health issues, and numerous other major obstacles in an effort to finish it. The grind and pressure to finish has left Tom as a man on the brink of destruction. A few months ago 3 filmmakers, Scott Reus, Stan Arthur, and Vince Rocca combined their efforts to shoot a documentary about Tom's journey into the abyss. That documentary, “Making Waste: How One Man Made a Movie and Ruined His Life" is now complete and ready for the world to see. Unfortunately, we don't have enough money to pay for the materials and entry fees needed to enter our documentary into film festivals. That's where you come in...
If we can raise at least $1,000... we will have enough to burn DVD screeners, print HDcam tapes and enter 20 film festivals with the hope of being accepted in at least 5 or 6 of them. If we are fortunate enough to raise more than that, then we will be able to send at least one member of the filmmaking team to each festival in an effort to create more awareness of Tom's film, “Waste of Space”, which would go along way in helping him get the movie distributed. Even if he self-distributes, the more awareness we build, the more DVD's he can sell.
If we can raise more than $5,000... we will be able to do the above plus help Tom finish his movie and facilitate some sort of distribution and marketing campaign. If we can help him finish the movie in the next few months and start selling some DVDs, he can begin paying back the mountain of debt he has incurred and get his life back together.
We thank you very much for your consideration and hope you will join us to help one man with a dream... that became a nightmare... see that there is still hope for dreams to come true!
