A staff writer must finish a project to receive a promotion. One night. One mistake. One stranger. One chance is all she has left.
Thank you so much for taking the time to consider supporting our vision… We are truly grateful for your drive, dedication, and donations! We hope you will enjoy what we've created and we look forward to creating and sharing many more amazing films with you!!! Check us out below:
Thank you so much to all our Kickstarters!!!! We've reached our initial goal of $4,500 and quite honestly didn't think we've accomplish this so fast.
With so much encouragement and support, we've decided to work toward another goal of raising $7,500 for very specific reasons.
1. Create and package a great DVD for our fans, friends, and to send to film festivals (We've selected Mixonic - http://www.mixonic.com/cd-dvd-packaging/ to do this!!
2. Have a great reception party for family, friends, supporters, and fans in order to show thanks for all the support!
3. Enhance our film in the editing process with original music scores and sound effects rather than stock images or music!!
Thank you so much to our early supporters and final contributors alike!
There is something amazing when people from diverse cultures and communities come together. Last year, Memphis native Allen Redwing (Director, Writer, Filmmaker, Photographer, and Retired US Army veteran) teamed up with New England native Alexis Rosasco (Actress, Writer, Director and Artist). When North met South the result was Mtown Films and a drive to create Movies That Move The Soul.
The Mtown Film crew is a diverse team of creative individuals who have come together to create dynamic and impactful narratives. The crew itself is a mix of ambitious Boston University CDIA film students, and experienced industry professionals, all driven towards a common goal.
Our film, The Drive, is about an imaginative, young staff writer who is driven to finish a final creative project for a long over due promotion. One night. One mistake. One stranger. One chance is all she has left.
It is a psychological thriller that touches upon the dangerous implications of being too driven to accomplish a dream, and sheds light on the power of the imagination within our young female protagonist, Lilly Cimini, as she grapples with her sense of devotion, destiny, and dysfunctional ambition. We feel our audience will appreciate the story for the uniquely crafted plot and character driven storytelling.
Check out The Drive Official Trailer (2014)… We hope you enjoy!!
Special thanks to all our crew members for all the hard work you've done so far!!! We have an amazing cast, network, and committed supporters with drive helping us! Will your drive push us to realize our films potential?

There is no question whether or not this movie will get made ... we are 100% committed to following through to completion. What ensures this? Well, for one, we've been planning this film for a long time have already begun production with a firm schedule mapped out and a strict self-imposed deadline to deliver this film by March 15, 2014.
As experienced filmmakers and producers, we know how important it is to set a deadline, execute a mission, and deliver something of value to the audience in a timely manner. FIlmmaking is arduous, but we have The Drive to push forward and produce. At some point, you have to bring a team together, plan, plot, strategize, and execute and we did that months ago. Now that things are rolling along, it's time to turn to you to let you know what's happening, and how you can take an active role in being a part of this process.
As contributors, funding this film does not guarantee a quality finished product. It can be challenging to decide which project benefits your contribution and personal taste alike.
Our goal is to honor your investment and bring a quality film to life we are proud of and you can likewise love.
It is not easy to ask good people for their hard earned dollars to pursue a filmmaking dream. Inevitably we run into logistical challenges and unforeseen circumstances, but we have and will continue to find creative solutions to overcome production hurdles, keeping the highest standards and expectation for ourselves and our films.
We are driven and committed to act responsibly and take great care with every investment dollar committed to The Drive. We are grateful for your willingness to join us on this journey.
Thank you so much for your support and contributions and we look forward to sharing our film with you and many more with your support. God bless you!
