ABOUT THIS PROJECT: This winter we will begin production on our New Haven based feature length film, My Brother Jack. Our goal with this Kickstarter campaign is twofold. The first is to raise a minimum of $20,000 which will be used to help pay for the hard dollar costs of pre-production. The second is to raise awareness, build a fan base and most importantly connect with people who have an interest in getting involved in the world of independent film in Connecticut.
We will use this Kickstarter campaign as a way of communicating with you, the Backers and fans, keeping you involved in the process as we move closer to the start of production. As a Backer of My Brother Jack, you will be the first to learn about casting, locations, screenings and other live events and will have an insider’s view of the project through post production and release.
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about My Brother Jack. Be sure to check out our list of rewards on the right. We also have some exciting news we plan to reveal over the course of the Kickstarter campaign so be sure to check back in often and help us spread the word.
