Pedal Power is the story of a 13 year old rebel who wants to save the family business by winning a bicycle race.

About this project

The aim of this project is to create a great film for you to enjoy! A whole-hearted inspirational tale of triumph over adversity! "Pedal Power" is the story of a 13 year old rebel who wants to save the family business by winning a bicycle race. 

Told in a light hearted manner, Pedal Power explores the concept of parental approval while also glorifying the universal symbol: bicycles.

What we are doing?

We are trying to raise enough money to begin production on our feature film, "Pedal Power." We are hoping to begin production in Los Angeles this summer. If we reach our goal of 5,500, we have an angel investor who will match that amount! So if we raise 5,500, we actually have 11,000! We've already raised 2,000 and with your help we can raise the remaining amount!

Making a film independently of a studio system is never easy. And although independent films, once the road less traveled, are rapidly the only method of expression for many filmmakers as technology makes it more accessible to tell stories, (HOORAY for the little guys!) It is still nigh impossible to reach an audience with the hold that the studio systems have on theatrical exhibitions and many ancillary markets... With your help we can change this dynamic! As technology grows so will ideas and new methods of reaching our audience! 

Every penny obtained from kickstarter (minus the fees for kickstarter's involvement) will be utilized for production expenses.

Food/Meals: $1,800; Camera and grip Expendables. $3400; Lighting Kit and Crew: $390; Sound Rental and Expendables: $2,100; Locations Fees & Permits: $200 is where the bulk of the money is needed to kick start this project off!

FAQs:

WHAT HAPPENS IF THE MONEY ISN'T RAISED IN TIME? 

If our goal isn't met before the deadline, we don't receive any of the pledges. Your debit or credit card will not be charged and no movie is made. We want to avoid this scenario at all costs!

CAN I INCREASE MY PLEDGE ONCE IT'S BEEN MADE?

YES! Once you donate to our campaign, you may want to change your incentive reward to a different one, or increase your pledge amount. To do so, go to Kickstarter and sign in. If you go to our campaign page, the green "Back This Project:: button has been replaced with a blue "Manage Your Donation: button. Click it and and you can enter a new amount, or choose a new incentive.

CAN WE EXCEED THE GOAL? 

Yes! Exceeding the goal would help us pay for more of the costs to finish the film.

IS MY PLEDGE AMOUNT PUBLICLY DISPLAYED? 

No. Only you and the project owner will be able to see your pledge amount.

I'M NOT IN THE US, CAN I STILL PLEDGE?

Yes, you can pledge from anywhere.
