It can sometimes take years to get an idea out of your brain and onto a page, and even longer than that to get the words off the page and onto a stage. And here we are, several years after a bouncing ball of an idea was persistent enough...

We are producing a short film this August, and would love to have your help and support in making it. Pizza Pie is an original work by Bethany Toews which plays out a scene between two people trying to connect.

We have collected a talented and enthusiastic crew of filmmakers and artists to create this project. If we reach our goal on Kickstarter, we will be able to cover all of our below-the-line costs for this production. These funds will be put toward:

$500 - Camera & G/E

$400 - Art Department (Set and Props)

$500 - Location and Insurance Costs 

$200 - Meals/Craft Services

$300 - Post Production

$300 - Kickstarter % and Supporter gifts

We are excited to turn this idea into something beautiful that we can share! Please be a part of the story by getting us past our goal. 

Thank you so much from our crew!

Producer- Sage Price ; Writer/Director- Bethany Toews ; Director of Photography - Kelly Moore ; Production Designer- Jillian Kliewer ; Gaffer - Jacob Menache 

Risks and challenges

Filmmaking is a steep challenge, and it's a costly endeavor. There are no shortcuts in creating art that is meaningful to its artists. We are passionate and confident about the production of Pizza Pie, and so we are so grateful to you if you can help us reach our funding goal! Our crew is experienced, talented and industrious. We are motivated to overcome the risks and hurdles we may encounter in this production. However, we understand that these risks and hurdles are real. We may find that due to extraneous circumstances on the day of shooting that pickup shots, ADR, or other post-production work are necessary to complete our project. We are determined to tell this story, and see the production through to the very end!
