Take a journey through the imagination of your inner child and rediscover what it's like to fall in love for the first time.

Enter the whimsical world of Warrier Boy, a world fueled by the imagination of a young boy named Dylan. When 22 year old Emily moves in next door, Dylan's life takes an exciting turn towards adventure, as she introduces him to a summer devoid of household troubles and filled with wonder. Through Emily, Dylan learns to take his artistic talents to another level, converts a longtime school nemesis into a friend and most of all, Dylan experiences first love. 

This project defines us, not only as film makers, but as children at heart who believe in the power of the youth in cinema. The Advenchurs of Warrier Boy is an intimate film, riddled with many pieces of who we are as individuals and who we were as children. Our own childhood drawings are nestled subtlety within the narrative as Dylan's own, reflecting our own image in this wonderful character we have created. Even our own toys and icons are scattered throughout the set in a tapestry of color and nostalgia. Dylan's school is the very place where we grew up and shooting in this special place meant a lot to us, especially seeing our character dressed in the uniform we had to put up with for so many years. This film is special to us because not only do we see ourselves in the protagonist, but the story of first love and growth is one we felt needed to be told from a different perspective. Though the colors of Dylan's life begin to dim as the tension in his own home continues, Emily is always there to show him the finer points in life.

So far we have had incredible support from fellow filmmakers, artists and tech savvy gurus who have all acted as our armada to make this project a reality. We have funded the film so far from our own pockets but are reaching a point where we can really use your help. Post production requires animation from freelancers working for compensation and we hope to submit this film to as many film festivals as we can find, Sundance being our priority. The money would go to festival submissions, distribution and marketing. 

We hope that you can all find a little part of yourselves in these characters and help us share this story throughout the country.
