About Speakeasy

Speakeasy takes place in the not too distant future, after the United States Congress has reinstated prohibition. Our story follows Jane, a poor single mother who is in dire need of money. Together with her friends Robin and Warren, they decide to open a speakeasy, an illegal underground bar. The speakeasy becomes a huge hit because of its diverse clientele and welcoming atmosphere. But when a politician threatens the speakeasy, both money and friendships are at stake. 

About Montgomery White Productions

The Speakeasy crew consists of eleven Keene State College Film Studies majors. We are a group of Juniors and Seniors working on our thesis film. We each bring different skills to the table that complement one another. Our process has been collaborative. We all feel ownership over this film, and want it to succeed. 

Our film will premiere in the Keene State Student Film Festival in May 2015. After the premiere, we will enter it to regional, national and international festivals. Also, we as individuals will use this film to show prospective employers that we will be a valuable asset to their team.

How You Can Help

We can't make this film without you. 

After studying film for years we've really looked forward to this fantastic learning experience. Our group is larger than most and our project is ambitious. Film making is expensive, but with your donation our project can become a reality. 

Please consider pledging any amount. We appreciate your support! 

                                                         Thank you!

Risks and challenges

We will be facing many challenges during the production of our film. This is the first time that many of us have attempted to produce a short film as part of a crew and we are determined to overcome any obstacles that we face and learn from our mistakes.

We aim not only to create an amazing finished product, but also to better ourselves as filmmakers and artists.
