What do "Back to the Future", "The curious case of Benjamin Button", "Casino Royale" and "Asparagus" all have in common? Well, these films all had actors in them that we were able to cast for 'MAX'… pretty exciting, huh?
And just what is ‘MAX’ all about?
"New to Los Angeles, proud Paris native Andre struggles to adjust to his new home. When an act of vandalism strikes his car, Andre must decide whether violence and revenge is the best way to keep his wife and soon-to-be-born son safe."
Now that we got ourselves an amazingly talented (and sexy!) cast and a great script to work with… we need money to make this short film a reality. That's where (fingers crossed) you come in. Our L.A. based script requires us to shoot in about 10 locations. As you may have heard, this city likes to charge us filmmakers quite a bit of green to shoot it. So, we are hoping to raise $10,000* to cover our location fees, permits and a picture care rental with specialty insurance… those are the only items we can't really pull favors for. I’ve got everything else covered with help of very dear talented filmmaker friends of mine. * of course we'd be very happy to raise more than our initial goal so our post production process can start right after shooting MAX and we don't have to do another Kickstarter video to raise more funds :)
Now, why should this film get made? I think we have an interesting and compelling story about confronting fatherhood, relocating to a new city, and the mystery of coincidence. And, we're not gonna just take your money, make the film and see you at the screening. Like all the other great filmmakers on Kickstarter, we have some pretty amazing rewards… if not some of the coolest ones I've seen recently (besides, of course, the ones that I wouldn't want to share with my 3-year old). Jump on board as a 'supporter' before the rest of the world does! Check out the rewards column and pick one that you fancy (skateboards, authentic memorabilia, walk on roles, sexy French love letters...)! Go for it… throw the hat over the fence! Life is too short to spend money on $5 lattes at Starbucks. Instead, be a part of motion picture history!
Questions? E-mail me, call me, send a pigeon, make a smoke signal…I wanna hear from you!
Let's make a film! Together!
Much love & peace
