ABOUT THE FILM:

Kyle is a detached young outsider and has trouble interacting with anybody, instead he prefers to simply observe. But when he follows his fellow classmate Ann into the woods and discovers a secret of hers involving an old well, he decides to investigate further.

This film is about the fear and anxieties that young people experience when they first become curious about the opposite sex.

WHY AM I MAKING THIS FILM?

I don't think I ever really got over adolescence. It is an incredibly difficult time for everyone and it is a time that has really stuck in my mind in both good and bad ways. All my previous films have been about escaping reality and experiencing memories in an exaggerated way. With this film I am anxious to confront reality and pick apart these memories, learning from every situation and each subtle nuance. I'm ready to go back and relive those defining moments of adolescence and learn more about myself and everyone else. I hope you are too!

The Cast: All the wonderfully talented actors who will be dedicating their time and putting their energy into fleshing out these characters and making this film happen.

The Crew: All the wonderfully talented filmmakers who will be lending their ideas and skills to this film.

The Equipment: The Camera, The Grip Truck, The Lights, The Audio equipment, and all those other expensive filmmaking tools...

The Food: Feeding a film crew is like feeding a ravenous army.

The Locations: School deposits and insurance, props and set dressing.

HOW DOES KICKSTARTER WORK?

Kickstarter is an amazing way to support a film and filmmakers. It brings people from all backgrounds together to help fund artists and creative projects that interest them. It also directly involves backers in the production process and bridges the gap between the audience and the artists.

All pledges are securely processed through Amazon.com's payment services. Your pledge will not be processed UNTIL the end of our fundraising campaign and ONLY and I mean ONLY if we hit our goal.

If the project you're backing is successfully funded, your card will be charged when the project reaches its funding deadline. If the project does not reach its funding goal, your card won't be charged.

THANK YOU!
