About this project
Thanks to all my pledgers for a successful Kickstarter launch, raising over $3500, and we’re almost there! We are so close to the finish line we can taste it! We have one last shoot scheduled with our talented cast & crew and a genius new composer on board, Jeff Mercel of the amazing Mercury Rev. We need only $600 to pay our dedicated amazing crew! I know we can do it, and look forward to completing this pilot for you to be seen on Blip, You Tube, and Vimeo... all of which will be connected for you via facebook and kickstarter.
Here is our previous successful kickstarer page for this project:
Check out scene 3 from our previous shoot in the video above:
In this scene, Fionaugh (Maureen O'Malley), the pregnant pastor of a displaced Unitarian Church, enters into her temporary soup kitchen in the basement of a Catholic Church to see that the homeless guys are a mess - waiting for food that isn't coming. A Business Man (Patrick McGowan), fresh out of financial downfall, has a psychotic break on one of the tables. Gorgeous George (Robert Barnes), watches as if from above, judging all, but mostly himself. The rest of the Homeless cast are Doug Drucker, Josh Elrod, Damion Omar Lee, O'Donnell Joshua, Jr.
