Mulligan is a feature-length independent comedy written by Jonathan Eliot and directed by Will Slocombe. It tells the story of John Hanson (Jonathan Eliot), a frustrated cartoonist who reluctantly teams up with his former best friend Karl (Dean Chekvala) to find $500,000 buried somewhere on an abandoned golf course in Twin Lakes, Wisconsin. Along the way they cross paths with a dangerous local cop (Vincent Teninty), two beautiful femme fatales (Amy Sloan and Kaitlin Doubleday) and some mobsters (Christian Stolte and Paul Dichter), all of whom are after the cash.
We shot Mulligan in the summer of 2010. After a year of post-production, we're ready to submit to film festivals. But we need your help. Your generous donations will go towards:
-Color-correction: to make the film even better-looking when it's on the big screen
-Sound mixing: to sweeten the audio and replace problematic dialogue
-Special FX: there are incredible animation sequences in the film that need retouching
-Website: what most people will see when they first hear about Mulligan
-Festival submissions: we have a festival strategy, but need money to cover the cost of submitting
-Press materials: the printing and shipping costs of posters and press releases, and other costs associated with spreading the word.
In order to raise $10,000 for these costs, our Kickstarter campaign will run for 30 days. Donations are made through your Amazon account (credit card), and your donations can remain anonymous if you choose. If we do not reach our goal by the end of the campaign, we don't get any money, and you will not be charged.
We've got some great rewards based around the movie, including golf balls, tees, and pencils. At the higher levels are more personalized items like a creepy voicemail from writer/star Jon Eliot, autographed posters, your own song about you; the movie itself will be available as a digital download for those who donate $25 or more. DVDs will be an option down the road, but this gives you much more immediate gratification.
Any donation helps! If you donate just $1 (or more), you'll receive updates through Kickstarter that include clips from the film.
