About

Hello friends!

Thank you for taking the time to look at Beecher Baby Bouncer today. This is a college Master's Project in Communication and film festival submission and the production has been a thrilling experience. The story of the Beecher Baby Bouncer comes from a parody written on FunnyOrDie which was well received. It has been exciting to watch this grow from an idea, to an article, and now forming to a real life creation.

GOALS

Easy enough, I want to get the funding for this micro-budget taken care of. With the power of the crowd-funding projects that are surfacing, I wanted to include it within the project! There have been some amazing projects come to surface and I wanted to include this new found, socially driven trend into my final Master's project!

I have been able to arrange some of the best local artists to work together to make this happen. It's a micro-budget with options for growth though. Depending on what the final amount raised will be, we can really grow and take this film in new heights! That's where you, the Kickstarter crew, come in to play.

My ultimate goal is to make the best film possible with the budget available. I know the independent scene is saturated with ideas and wishes, I present a product already in the works. As you can soon view from the trailer, we have began this journey and want to take it to the best possible ending that it can reach. The talented people tied to this project can help it soar.

Financial Goals

As expected, this is a college project so all money raised will be put towards the film itself. The original goal of $1,500 is set to cover all the bare minimum of expenses. Stretch goals will be created should the funding exceed the amount proposed. Some ideas would be to include rentals for more elaborate locations and scenes. The film is shot using DSLR capable video cameras, audio recording equipment using a Zoom H4N as the base recording unit, and lighting rigs and editors are lined up and readily available. The more funding this project can generate only enhances the film and production costs.

Oooh yeah, the story!

So the concept of the script is simple. A set of parents who look online for a last minute babysitter, find one and hire him immediately. Little do they know that the babysitter has a dark past and that they are only being lured into a trap.

After the parent's leave, The Beecher Baby Bouncer prepares his largest and biggest moment as he quickly becomes any parent's worst nightmare! It may also have you second guessing that second or third floor to live in an apartment complex!

It's a very humorous approach to a simple idea. We hope you will soon enjoy the trailer (coming soon) and we look forward to creating a wonderful project that we can proudly say "This wouldn't be possible if it weren't for Kickstart and their incredible community!"

Thank you again! Help me prove the power of communication and entertainment!
