Welcome to the kickstarter page for Gorf: The Movie!
This is a story of a man who has been given the gift of a very elaborate and vivid imagination. Gorf often uses his imagination for entertainment. As life deals him more and more stressful situations, Gorf starts to escape into his mind for comfort and coping.
Eventually, over-use of this ability leads to a breaking down of barriers between reality and imagination. We, as the viewer get to watch Gorf try to understand the blurring lines as both worlds collide. Is Gorf losing his mind? Or has he tapped into an ability no other human has ever experienced?
This, is Gorf. Join him with a supporting cast of friends and foes as we discover the true power of imagination.
I'm Matt Gadouas and this is my first indie film project of a scope this size, and I want YOU to get involved! :-)
Unlike my previous videos which were self-funded and/or volunteer time of many cool people, we want to step it up and then some by getting some funding for our project.
The funding we get with your help will get us cool things like:
Travel expenses to location shoots, permits for shooting in public areas, wardrobe and props, makeup, basic refreshments for crew/extras on set, cost of consumables while filming (batteries, bulbs, etc.)
The preview video on this page was done entirely on volunteer time and privately funded props and locations. Which is I guess my way of saying 15 of us pooled together our talents and resources to make a cool trailer.
We posted the Gorf trailer on youtube at 9pm on Saturday evening, June 16th, with the promise that if we could generate 1000 youtube hits in one month, we would shoot the entire movie.
Well, it turns out we are on the right track as the trailer hit 1000 hits IN JUST 6 DAYS!!! Surpassed all of our expectations and then some.
I'm pretty passionate about making movies and fun, short films. I've made over 75 sketches and short films over the past few years, building on my experience each time. The people I've met and worked with in the Gorf Trailer alone has made this an unforgettable experience. Please help me make something even more amazing, its going to be a blast.
