High school social outcasts Roy Offerman and Larry DiMarco struggle to find a drummer for their new punk rock band, Witness My Jehovah. As Roy will learn, sometimes finding the answer to one problem only brings about a host of others. Immediately after finding a drummer, Roy is plagued by a raging case of hemorrhoids. This causes his parents to be confused about his sexuality, and starts up all sorts of new rumors at school. In the most unexpected place, Roy meets his dream girl Samantha. As Roy and Sam's relationship develops, Witness My Jehovah lands their first big gig at a local music venue. When things don't go as planned, Roy is faced with some of the biggest decisions he'll ever have to make.
Are you really making a feature for $3,000?
Not at all. I've been working and saving up my own money for the last year to be able to make this movie. I've also been selling off valuable personal items on Ebay. But that's still not enough to cover our expenses!
Since The Backseat is a full length movie, our $3,000 goal only covers a fraction of the budget. The more money we raise, the more resources we'll have to make the film as great as it can be.
This is a great opportunity to support a group of passionate independent filmmakers and actors.
Who else is involved?
Currently our cast includes the following fantastic actors: Chris Bellant, Allyson Reilly, Craig Kelly, Costa Nicholas, Lori Hamilton, and Vanessa Cuccia. We still have many more cast members that we'll be announcing over the next few weeks.
