About

First film under CALIwood Productions!!! 

Putting together the best team of aspiring film makers to bring life to the story of Will Bennate, an action hero that heads home to his highschool reunion looking for a break. What he gets is much different than a laid back weekend. 

Story Time: 

HI!! My name is Kevin Caliendo. I am the founder of CALIwood Productions where we currently specialize in video editing and graphic designs. Currently working on my first screenplay entitled 'Class Reunion'. Born and raised Chicago native, I became an actor at the age of 19 which I continue to pursue. After a few years of background work I had the opportunity to attend The Illinois Center for Broadcasting to major in radio and tv broadcasting. Why not a theatrical school you ask? Well, as a passionate working actor I refused to limit myself to one title in the entertainment industry and ICB had the hands on camera and editing training I needed. With my degree from ICB I've had the knowledge to bring to life my own ideas and now the proud video editor of Easy Wood Tools as well as my freelance company called CALIwood Productions. I can tell you right now I love acting. It's an amazing feeling being in front of the camera ready to give life to a fictional character and I look forward to one day accepting my very own Oscar (or atleast a pat on the back from fellow co stars �

What we need and what you get:

We have the script and the determination but now:

-All donations will go to the production of our film-

Equipment - We want nothing but the best quality for  our audience. This includes camera (Panasonic p2) and lens rental, appropriate lighting, microphones (boom and wireless), hard drives, (Shoulder rigs and film tracks would be a plus)

Location - Production would take place on location to give you the real feel of the story. 

Licences, Permits, Lease contracts 

Cast and Crew - Time is precious and we want to keep our busy talent and crew happy and show them our appreciation for their hard work. 

Film Distributors - In order to showcase the finished product, marketing plays a huge role. 

If we do not make our goal, we will still stretch what we earn into our production and push forward with what we have. Nothing can hold us back. If we raise more than our initial goal of funds, GREAT!! All donations that we have left over will go to future projects we have in development.

Other Ways You Can Help: 

We understand that times can be tough and many do not have the funds to show support, but that's OK! Show you believe in us just by sharing our page with friends and family!

Lots of perks for your generosity including, but not limited to, receiving updates on the progress of the film through set photos, a signed movie poster and an invite to the red carpet premiere!

Risks and challenges

There are many risks and challenges we face in this industry we plan to face every obstacle head on and work the hardest we've ever worked to bring our dreams into fruition and you as a contributor have not a thing to worry about in your future of entertainment. I feel so fortunate to have many friends in the film industry that I can call on favors for if and when we are faced with a challenge.
