Hello Everyone. My name is Timothy Gagliardo, I've produced a few features and I was brought on to try and get this film made. I'd like to begin by stating what our current situation is.
When I started I learned that the previous production team had spent a large amount of the kickstarter funds on taxes, development, and attempts to raise more funds. I do not fault them for this attempt, but their attempt was unsuccessful.
There is not enough money to even attempt to make a single scene of this film with the quality it deserves. I've created a schedule and budget that estimates about 600K to properly make this film at the cheapest possible budget.
I will not ask for new pledges, so the best remaining plan to get the film made is to sign some star talent aboard. Mark Hammil, for example. If he were to sign on to join us I could go to a distribution company and a film finance company and get this film more than fully funded. Michael (our beloved writer) worked directly with Mark some years ago, so we are pursuing that avenue.
I understand that Mark Hammil is a long shot. So we have made a list of other potential actors that have worked with Michael and may want to sign.
Currently, Michael is not well. Without going into details, it has slowed us down. We are hopeful that Michael will be well enough in the near future to help us attach some of our target actors.
We are forging ahead with the utmost optimism desire to make this great film. I will try to log in regularly to keep people up to date and answer any questions you all may have.
Thank you for your patience to this point.
