YAY! We made it. Thank you a million times over to all who pledged! And if this is your first time to this link, please don't be shy to pledge even though we've hit the target --- every single tiny bit helps when it comes to a low budget movie and you still get cool rewards when you pledge!! THANK YOU!!

About the project:

I’m a director who recently directed a play called RINGO written by the playwright Chris Davis.

I usually work in film – shooting commercials and music videos… and my dream? To shoot narrative films...

So we're turning RINGO into a short film.

RINGO is about Nancy, an older woman who hires a young male prostitute, Ringo, for an evening... But instead of having sex, we enter a dark comedic world where Nancy has Ringo role-play her son’s life – starting from his birth.

Your help will get this short produced. Funding will go to renting location, equipment, transport, hiring crew, feeding crew, hiring an editor, having film scored, post production costs, and the costs involved in submitting the short into film festivals.

Thank you for taking the time to look at this project. The actors that made the play a success are going to star in the film. The playwright turned the stageplay into a screenplay....

We're all all passionate about this story and its potential for two reasons: One, it makes us happy to be a part of it and two, good stories are hard to find.

Love, Yaara
