About

Ballot Holes Movie
Ballot Holes Movie

We know that our election processes are vulnerable.  Experts have been warning us about this for years.  We need to raise awareness and get America's attention.  Click "Play" above to see a brief trailer.

We plan to raise the awareness of the vulnerability of our election process to hacking and foreign influence by creating an entertaining, thrilling movie (or TV series) based on the novel Cassandra, Chanting written by an election systems insider. The movie will not be a documentary but an adaptation of the novel.  $30,000 or more raised through Kickstarter will provide funds to engage a screenwriter to produce a screenplay or movie "treatment" -- expenses intended to get the movie produced. Our stretch goal of $60,000 would provide funds to increase the likelihood of creating the best product possible to attract an experienced producer and director with a history of producing award-winning films.

We don't rule out getting the story told in alternative formats such as a TV series or video distribution.

Risks and challenges

Going from a novel to a movie is not at all assured. Going from a novel to a movie (theatrical or TV/TV series) is even less assured. We are motivated patriots who have committed our own resources to minimizing the risk of seeing this project through to completion.
