ABOUT THE FILM
We all have those memories we'd give anything to re-do, re-live, or rewind. Good or bad we collect, we carry, we curate them, and our future remains the one constant to put our past behind us...or forever live in it.
TOMORROW ECHOES is a film about a man named David and the laws and rules that govern every aspect of his life. It's only when he's reintroduced by chance to a figure from his past, that David starts to question the decisions that led him to his safe and secure present day existence.
Are the safe choices really the right ones? If you could, would you welcome another chance at harnessing the chaos of your past - with no guarantees of an outcome?

HOW CAN I HELP?
In order to green light this project, we're asking for the absolute bare minimum of $4000 needed to move this forward. This includes the following;
1. Craft Services - We are currently projecting a 10 day shoot in which we'll need to provide 1-2 meals per day for cast and crew...it adds up quick.
2. Production Insurance - Needed to ensure if any accidents happen onset, we're covered.
3. Location Fees - We're keeping this as low as possible by utilizing our network but this is an inevitable expense.
Even though $4000 gets us in production, it's still only a portion of the $25,300 needed to let TOMORROW ECHOES reach it's full potential.
We'll still be looking for funding for the following and more;
- Two sequences in the film that would benefit GREATLY shooting them with a Steadicam or MōVI and professional operator,
- Doorway Dolly with Track Rental
- Film Fest Fees
- DCP Conversion
- Post Production Raid Drives
100% of the funds raised for this film will go towards Production and Post Production costs. We won't be taking a dime for ourselves.
Risks and challenges
We can all be incredibly difficult creative personalities to work with at times - simply because we want our work to be the very best it can be...sometimes this means taking more time than it should for completion.
But, this passion project is something we are extremely excited to be working on and we are determined to see it through!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
