About this project

ABOUT THE FILM
HOLY ROLLERS follows the rise of arguably the largest and most well-funded blackjack team in America—made up entirely of churchgoing Christians. While they succeed in taking millions from casinos, how will they manage to find a place for faith and God in the arena of high stakes gambling?
WHY DO I NEED YOUR HELP?
I just found out that my film got accepted into one of the largest film festivals in the country (Seattle International Film Festival) based on a rough cut I sent them a few months ago! I sent it to them on a whim (not expecting to get in with an uncompleted film) but they loved it! Now, there is a world premiere date set for June and I'm not even finished. This means I have to finish the film completely in the next month. But to do that, I have to raise $8,000.
I have put a lot of time and money in to this project - in fact, $13,000 came out of my own bank account in spite of the fact that I don't have a real job and my wife is about to deliver our second baby :). The rest of the funding for the film so far has come from a couple of investors. But now - in this final phase of an almost 4 year project - I need one last wave of contributions to get to the finish line (with flare!) and get the film to its world premiere in Seattle.
Here is a breakdown of what I need to spend money on to make this film complete as well as get everything ready for bringing the film to audiences around the world.
- $750-Color Correction
- $500-Audio Mixing
- $1250-Website and Poster Design
- $2000-Fliers, Posters and other Marketing Materials Printed
- $1500-Film Festival Submissions
- $500-Mastering to tape
TOTAL = $8000
Any money raised over $8,000 will go to additional costs like hiring publicists and other distribution expenses to help get the film sold!
