NEW NEW NEW GOAL! (unofficially) $10k!

WE'RE SO EXCITED we reached our goal in ONLY 9 days! And our second (unofficial) goal 3 days later. HOWEVER, know that EVERY penny beyond that goal will be put to good use. Making a low-budget film means a lot of favor asking - but it's always better to not have to beg. We'd also love to expand our vision of the film with all the toys possible - color correction, music clearance, title design, score, dubs... We're capable of handling it all on our own - we've certainly done it before... BUT we also know some experts who'd appreciate the work.

THE GO DOC PROJECT

A recent college grad devises to shoot a doc about the NYC nightlife scene in order to meet the go-go guy he’s cyber-obsessed with.

AND award-winning SPEAKproductions (ALONG WITH YOU) is going to help!

THE GO DOC PROJECT is a feature film - conceived as a hybrid of documentary & narrative forms - charting the evolution of a relationship between two young men. Our nearly no budget approach - minimal equipment & a crew of two - will give us ultimate freedom as we explore every aspect of the story & the relationship between the young men as it develops in front of us. 

For three weeks in September and October, we'll follow the guys all over New York City with a camera - into cafes & bars, onto rooftops & dance floors & ultimately into their living rooms, kitchens, bathrooms & bedrooms. The excitement of not knowing exactly what we'll end up with is what it's all about. Following that, we'll shoot a series of interviews with them as well as with NYC nightlife luminaries. 

In the fall, we'll dive into the next phase: post-production, with an early 2013 film festival premiere in mind.

We'd love your support as we turn two guys, a camera & an idea into exciting modern storytelling!
