About

E.T.A.s is a story about Miles, a twenty-something young man who, in an instant, has his life turned upside-down. He is thrust into a situation that is beyond his control and it is revealed to him that everything he has been told is a lie.  Only with the help of four strangers can he overcome the obstacles before him and discover the truth.

 We are excited to have Joe Dressel on board as our stunt/fight coordinator.  Joe is an expert in several martial arts disciplines, as well as the owner of The Hanover Boxing Club.

Risks and challenges

We've had the good fortune of being in the production business for several years, working with various actors, crews, and clients. Over that time, we've gained valuable knowledge and experience about the production process from start to finish. We've also been fortunate to amass the majority of the necessary tools, including cameras, lights, and grip equipment, needed to complete this film.

Although knowledge, experience, and equipment, as well as the script we have written ourselves, are major pieces to making a film, our biggest obstacle is the funds to produce it. This is why the majority of the funds we raise will go to pay for cast, crew, location fees, craft services, wardrobe, and legal fees.

We feel that by bringing all of our resources to the table, along with your help, we're going to create a project that everyone will be excited to join.
