A Savory Story is a dark comedy about a hotdog man named Jake, living a repressed life, avoiding close relationships for fear of his secret being discovered. His only friendly interactions are at his job, as a mascot for a hotdog restaurant. On the day of his expiration, Jake summons the courage to ask the waitress of the restaurant to go out with him.
This film is my senior degree project at the Rhode Island School Of Design. As a student studying film, animation, and video I have been given the year to see this project all the way through, from conception to the screen. I embrace the fact that this is a student made film in every way. I write the story, produce the film, and edit the footage. Here is a link to one of my recent projects.
$3000 is what is need to raise to pull this project off. Most of the money will go to make the costume. I am working with Erminio Pinque of Big Nazo Creature Creation Lab in Providence Rhode Island. Here’s a link to their website and tumblr. The rest of the budget will be divided between equipment rentals, locations, props, and food for the cast and crew.
Risks and challenges
There is little risk in this investment. This film will get made and will be shown in the RISD senior showcase in May 2013.
Scheduling and securing locations can always present problems but I have tried to make sure this project is of a manageable scale to accomplish.
To avoid reward delays, I have factored in enough time after the film is completed to ensure that they all make it out as planned. Certain rewards like credit or digital downloads have instant gratification and should be fulfilled before the scheduled delivery date.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
