About this project
NEW FUNDING GOAL: $3,300
THANK YOU so much to everyone who has donated and/or shared! We have reached our original goal. We really appreciate everyone's support.
$2,000 was the bare minimum we needed to cover production. The more money we raise, the more we can spend on equipment, meals, props, wardrobe, music, post production and film festivals. We want this film to meet its highest potential and have a chance to reach the widest audience possible, so we're upping the ante and pushing for a new goal of $3,300!
Every little bit helps even if it's only $1 and there are plenty of cool incentives left to give away. Everything you donate goes to the production of the film and helps us make it the best that it can be. Thank you again!
Ticket to Ride tells the story of Wendell and Phil, two long time best friends and roommates who are perpetually down on their luck. Wendell and Phil are avid lottery players who always play the same numbers and have been doing so for years. One fateful night they are rushing on their moped to get to the store to purchase their lotto ticket before the 10 o'clock cut off time, only to arrive 5 minutes til to find the door locked with a make shift sign that reads "Back in 5 minutes." Meanwhile, the store clerk, Steve, is in the backroom taking photos of his show cat Mittens. This causes Wendell and Phil to miss the cut off time and they are not able to play their lucky numbers. Later that night the duo discover that their numbers have hit the jackpot and if they would have played them they would have won 70 million dollars. Wendell and Phil hatch a plan to exact revenge upon the cat loving clerk, Steve, which leads to chaos and hilarity.

WHAT'S THE MONEY FOR?
We want this short to look and sound great, and that requires professional equipment. Funds raised through this Kickstarter campaign will go towards truck & equipment rentals, props, location fees, and music licensing. As well as food for our cast and crew. Not only will your donations help us meet our production needs, but also it will help us in post production as well, with hard drives to send back and forth from Charleston, SC to New York, NY. Also for film festival entry fees.
