We want to tell you about a movie we're making this summer in Kansas City.

It's called KICK ME

KICK ME is a nightmare action comedy about the violent indignities that befall a mild-mannered high school guidance counselor who reaches out to a troubled kid - and ends up running for his life.

Gary Huggins (First Date) is the writer/director. Kim Sherman (You’re Next, V/H/S) is producing. The film stars a bunch of amazing people we can’t mention yet, and Santiago Vasquez. 

Real life action-hero Santiago Vasquez – supercop, karate master, actor – has spent half his twenty years as a KCK police officer working undercover (homicide, narcotics). Born in karate-mad Venezuela, Santiago has a lifetime’s study of martial arts under his fifth-degree black belt. His first two forays into acting propelled both films into Sundance and beyond. In addition, Santiago is a poet, a painter and the quintessential modern-day sybarite.

This is why Santiago Vasquez is not only the star of KICK ME, but the star of our Kickstarter incentives.

Look to your right. Look at the remarkable rewards we’d like to offer you for participating in KICK ME’s creation.

It's going to be an incredible movie - with your help.

Please, won’t you help us reach our goal?

Thank you!

CAN I INCREASE MY PLEDGE ONCE IT'S BEEN MADE?

Yes! Once you donate to our campaign, you may want to change your incentive reward to a different one, or increase your pledge amount. To do so, go to Kickstarter and sign in. If you go to our campaign page, the green “Back This Project” button has been replaced with a blue “Manage Your Donation” button. Click it and you can enter a new amount, or choose a new incentive.

CAN WE EXCEED THE GOAL?

Yes! Exceeding the goal would help us pay for more of the costs to finish the film.

IS MY PLEDGE AMOUNT PUBLICLY DISPLAYED?
No. Only you and the project owner will be able to see your pledge amount.

I'M NOT IN THE US, CAN I STILL PLEDGE?
Yes, you can pledge from anywhere.

CAN I GIFT AN INCENTIVE?
Yes! To "gift" your reward to someone else, please follow the normal process with the pledge and payment in your name. Once we've reached the deadline, we'll send you an email requesting the information we need to fulfill the reward (address, etc.) At that time, please reply with the contact info for the person that is to receive the reward and we'll follow through!

WHAT HAPPENS IF THE MONEY ISN'T RAISED IN TIME?
If our goal isn’t met before the deadline, we don't receive any of the pledges. Your credit or debit card will not be charged.
