About this project
In February of 2011 we premiered an indie unrated slasher film called Raymond Did It in Rockford, Illinois. We have been traveling the country hosting screenings and Q&A sessions since, and we have met with rave reviews and very pleased audiences. We have played in Illinois, Wisconsin and Los Angeles, CA. Now we would like to bring Raymond Did It to New York City.
As I mentioned above, we are an indie film (not "Black Swan with a 13 million dollar budget and a distributor" kind of indie. Rather "broke as hell poor starving artists with no money" kind of indie) and the only way we can show Raymond Did It to audiences is if we use the process of "four-walling," i.e. we rent a theater and hold a screening. We are also relying entirely on social media to promote the film. Kevin Smith is doing the same thing with his upcoming film Red State. Of course, Mr. Smith has thousands and thousands of followers on twitter. We do not.
So we are asking for your help. We are asking you to donate to the effort to bring Raymond Did It to New York City. We have found a lovely theater at the Anthology Film Archives however, the theater is not free.
Which brings us to Kickstarter.
We would like to ask you to help us take care of the cost of the screening and travel expenses to bring myself and the Director of Photography, Tim Stotz to New York City to screen Raymond Did It and hold a Q&A session. Of course we would like to make money on the screening. hell, we would LOVE to pack the house. However, if we cannot cover the cost of rental, we can't hold a screening.
So please support independent film. Help us take Raymond Did It to New York City.
We have alot of cool perks below for donating, including tickets to the show, the opportunity to get your film trailer or short film played at the screening, and even the ability to hijack our Q&A for your own purposes. So please, have a look and support our effort. Every dollar helps.
