**Update & Clarification** For anyone interested in the $1,000 “Act! Walk-on Role” incentive, this also includes attending the Wrap Party and Cast & Crew screening as you are then part of the cast! Sorry that this wasn't originally made clear!!!
“I Am I” is the story of a young woman, Rachael, who meets the father who abandoned her as a child. Her father's mental illness has him convinced that Rachael is actually Sarah, Rachael’s deceased mother. Only when Rachael plays along with his delusions does she begin to discover the truth about her parents' past and these revelations shed a new light on the present.
What are we doing?
We are trying to raise enough money to begin production on our feature film, "I Am I." We are hoping to begin production in Los Angeles this summer. If we reach our financial goal of $100,000 we have an angel investor who will match this amount!!! So if we raise $100,000, we will really have $200,000! If we raise more than $100,000, who knows what could happen!!!
Where can I learn more about the project?
Please visit our official website, www.iamithefilm.com! There you can find a full synopsis of the story, filmmaker bios, our blog and a wonderful interview series that we are producing about filmmaking! We have several incredible artists lined up for this series!!!
Is my pledge amount publicly displayed?
No. Only you and the project creator will be able to see your pledge amount.
If I donate, when can I redeem the incentive?
All incentives, big and small, will only happen if our goal is met. If we do meet our goal, immediately after our deadline we will start to manufacture and ship all physical merchandise directly to you. The screenings, parties and dvds etc. can only happen after the film is completed so this will take a bit of time. Bear with us!
What if I don’t want the incentive, I just want to support?
No problem, there is a button that you can select if you don’t want the reward.
Can we exceed the goal?
YES! This would truly be amazing. Exceeding our goal would allow us to make a better movie. Kickstarter will allow as much money as is given before the deadline. This is only the beginning of our journey with this film, we are not in pre-production yet. We have set our goal at the low end so if we were able to exceed it, it would be a dream come true and it would allow us to get more of the film done.
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 you can enter a new amount, or choose a new incentive.
Can I Gift An Incentive?
YES! That’s very sweet of you. If you would like to donate to the film but give the reward to someone as a gift, go through all the normal process of making a donation in your name. For billing purposes, this action must be in your name. After our deadline, we will send a message to you on Kickstarter. (It will be forwarded to the email address you provided) We will request things like your t-shirt size and address from you at that time. Please reply with all the person’s information that is to receive the reward. We will make sure they are the person who receives the reward.
How do we get the voice recordings if we choose that pledge?
We will ask you for the details of your personal message and then we will record it as a wav. file and email it to you so that you can upload it on to your phone. FYI, Simon cannot do a message as "Howard Wolowitz" for obvious ownership reasons! But he can do impersonations!
What happens if the money isn’t raised in time?
If our goal isn’t met before the deadline, no money changes hands and no movie is made. We want to avoid this scenario at all costs!
Who does the money go to?
Every penny (minus the fees for Kickstarter’s involvement) will go directly to the “I Am I” movie budget - i.e. Your money goes directly to the funding of this film.
I'm not in the US. Can I still pledge to projects?
Yes. You can pledge from anywhere.
How do we contact you?
Glad you asked! Please go to our website for the film. www.iamithefilm.com and go to contacts. We will quickly get back to you!
