About this project
Why did you switch from Kickstarter?
We didn't think we would make the project goal of 37K in the 54 days that were left. We also realized that Indie GoGo offered a better platform because we had the type of film that could be made for less than 10K if it needed to go that route. The film is basically in flux according to what will actually happen during filming, as well as trying to meet what has been written in the script. But if we suddenly can't film a segment because an actor doesn't show, or we don't have enough funds to shoot a particular element, then that will become a part of the film as well.
What if I already donated to Kickstarter?
If you re-donate to Indie GoGo, you will receive a free SFAA tee shirt (as worn by the actors in the featurette). If you donated at an amount that now includes a tee shirt as part of the donation tier, you will receive an additional tee shirt (see James Roehl pictured below).

Part absurdist documentary and part cinematic realism, Shoplifting from American Apparel moves between the life of the actual writer who has written the popular novel on which the film is based to the mishaps of a ragtag film crew who offer each other challenges to make certain scenes despite having unnecessary stunts go horribly wrong, budgetary constraints, and other unforeseen creative roadblocks.

Is the pledge amount publicly displayed?
No, only you and the project owner can see the details.
