About this project
Thank you for visiting our Kickstarter page!
We are shooting a 24 minute short film inspired by the moral simplicity and authoritative certainty of our paren- I mean, mid-century educational films.
My name is Kirk Dilley and I have brilliant, talented, and good-looking friends who are helping me make this movie.
This story is about GUS, a work-a-day office everyman, who has recently become fixated with finding his "dream girl", an ever-changing, but persistent presence in his dreams of late.
We will be shooting 1920x1080p and in color.
We already own most of the expensive equipment we need to shoot this movie. We will be using Canon DSLR cameras (7D mostly), using offline Tascam audio recorders and Rode mics, and have a set of soft boxes and LEDs for lighting.
We are are asking for your help in order to pay our SAG actors (listed below), the care and keeping of our small crew, location rentals, set design/props, traveling expenses, and catering.
We'd be happy to answer any questions you might have about the production, your donation, or any other universal existential dilemmas. Please contact us at:

Caroline Macey was born and raised in Lakeland, Florida where she
discovered her life-long passion for acting through the Pied Piper
Player's community theatre at the age of 12 taking on her first acting
challenge as a singing owl in the chorus of "Hansel & Gretel". She
attended the Lois Cowles Performing Arts Center, and attended at
Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio on a full musical theatre
scholarship. Having the opportunity to work with Wright State's film
students, she discovered her appreciation for the subtle medium of
film. Her most notable television credits include roles on "Party
Down", "Grey's Anatomy", and "Medium". She has starred with Danny
Trejo and George Katt in indie crime drama "Valley of Angels", and
played many supporting roles in indie films such as "Pickin' &
Grinnin" directed by Jon Gries, and "Weapons" (2007 Sundance
Selection) written and directed by Adam Bhala Lough. She is one of
the 4 gang girls (ala "Switchblade Sisters"-style) in the 3s & 7s
"Queens of the Stone Age" music video. She has recently appeared
alongside Paul Williams & Creed Bratton in the retro sci-fi musical
"The Ghastly Love of Johnny X" (2012 Cinequest premiere and Dances
with Films selection). She can currently be seen performing improv at
Improv Olympic West in Hollywood with THE CREEPS. Look out for her
starring heroine role in the tongue-in-cheek, horror film "Slumber
Party Slaughter" with Tom Sizemore, Ryan O'Neal, Robert Carradine, &
Rebekah Chaney rumored to be out Halloween 2012.
Joe Willand is thrilled to be working with Kirk and Matt again. Their first project "Anesidora" is one of his most beloved. Joe is a transplant from Minnesota and has been acting in LA for over 6 years. He has been fortunate enough to work on dozens of projects since landing in early 06' and looks forward to that number becoming hundreds.
Ted Fisher produced and edited 32 episodes of the “Frugal Traveler” series for The New York Times, winning the Webby Award in the Travel Category for Online Film & Video in both 2008 and 2009.
