Synopsis:

After a young man daydreams a romantic escapade around San Francisco with, quite literally, the girl of his dreams, he resolves to find her, believing she is exactly who he imagines her to be.

The Purpose:

Thanks so much for checking out our Kickstarter for the short film, REFLECTION OF THE LIFE. We have already made the film--shooting, editing, sound design, packaging--all finished! We all worked very hard to get this far and emptied our bank accounts to get it finished. Now we want people to see it! The purpose of this Kickstarter, then, is to raise money to pay for film festivals, marketing material, shipping, and anything else that goes along with getting our film into the festival circuit.

And we're not just chasing a dream here. The film is great! And thanks to the beautiful cinematography by Katelin Arizmendi; the wonderful performances of Michael Doppe, Christine Donlon, Annamarie MacLeod, and Alejandro Torres; the music of Gaucho and The Nice Guy Trio; the hard work of the crew; and the not-too-shabby writing and directing of Michel Hulsey, the film has already been accepted to two festivals and won an Award of Excellence at the Best Shorts competition in San Diego, CA. 

So please, consider helping us out. We've all worked incredibly hard to get this far and everyone involved wants to see this film succeed. Help us get it seen by contributing whatever you can!

And check out all the great incentives! Thank you so much for your support!

Risks and challenges

All the rewards should be sent out in December. However, due to some festival restrictions, we think it will be better to wait to send the DVDs out until after the festival run is over. Please be patient with us, but DVDs will be sent out as soon as possible. Thanks!
