Missing Miranda stars hit the streets to ask, "What's Your Favorite Romantic Comedy?"
It's good to see Romantic Comedy love alive and well! So let us tell you about *our* favorite romantic comedy: "Missing Miranda"...
Missing Miranda: How far will fate take you?
Miranda and Christopher have both faced challenges in their young adult lives. Miranda is getting over her emotional paralysis of having been left at the altar and Christopher’s loss of his kid sister has left him without any semblance of a life. The two meet at Miranda’s dead-end waitressing job and instantly share a connection. With a few more visits, they start forming the beginnings of a deep relationship without ever giving out their personal information. But, when Miranda quits suddenly, Christopher has no way of finding her. He only knows her first name.
The two finally realize that life is only what you make of it, and that they should be spending the precious time they have living their dreams. While traveling down this newfound path, Miranda and Christopher’s lives begin to overlap. Unknowingly, they form mutual friendships and share several misconnections. They are never aware of their close encounters, but when they both take momentous steps in the right direction and overcome their personal baggage, Miranda and Christopher’s paths cross again. Will things go differently the second time around?

Director Liz Rizzo talks about Missing Miranda:
Missing Miranda is a smart and funny romantic comedy about modern people finding each other right while they're also finding their path in life. It's a fun film for people who love romantic comedies. I love a good romantic comedy, and I bet you do, too.
For "Missing Miranda," I want to showcase downtown L.A. and East L.A., where my heart lives. I want to have a sense of motion, of young people living fast lives that are connected by technology. I want to make a funny, shiny little film where the characters and the situations make sense in our modern world. After all, so much has changed, and yet so much about finding yourself in your 20s remains the same.There's a lot of love and a lot to laugh about.
Speaking of love, we love our Red camera, and we're fortunate to have the consultation of experienced producers to keep us on track in terms of budget, paperwork, and schedule. As a microbudget feature, we will be posting in Final Cut Pro, and we will deliver our film and our rewards within the budget of this Kickstarter campaign.
As for me, I'm a graduate of the FSU Graduate Film School, where I directed the award-winning graduate thesis film, "Every Little Girl's Dream." This film was edited by my longtime editor, Randall Harmon Waldrop, who edited my reel and many of the pieces you can watch on my directing website. Also, I've been a blogger since 2005, and I'm blogging about Missing Miranda on my personal blog, Everyday Goddess. I've lived and worked in Hollywood since 2002.
I've directed a lot of short form, and Missing Miranda will be my first feature film. So exciting! I just love the screenplay and the people on this team. Please join us so we can all bring Missing Miranda to life!
Meet the cast of Missing Miranda!
Can you really make a movie for $65K?
We're glad you asked! Our Kickstarter goal is $65,000 - a lot to raise, but a challenging budget for a feature film. We've got a tight schedule, and we will use our Kickstarter funds to rent equipment, cover art department, and pay (and feed!) our cast & crew. Many of our important costumes will be constructed. Insurance is a top priority to us! Nothing matters more than the safety of our "Missing Miranda" family! Post-production will take another big portion of the budget. As a micro-budget feature, we will do our post in Final Cut Pro - Our budget includes completion of our film. Lastly, we have also allotted funds for publicity. Our hopes are to take "Missing Miranda" to festivals nationwide and we will want to publicize the film properly! We've also budgeted for Kickstarter costs, taxes, and reward fulfillment, of course. We can't wait to shoot our film and send you your rewards.
What happens if you don't reach 65K?
Sadly, if we don't reach our goal we won't receive anything! It's important to remember that when you make a pledge you will not actually be charged until our campaign ends and if our goal is met. It's all or nothing, folks!
Can You Raise More Than $65K?
We hope so! That would be awesome! Every penny we raise will go into our production and help us make "Missing Miranda" great.
Can I increase my pledge once it's been made?
Absolutely! Once you pledge a donation, you may want to change your incentive level to a different one and increase the pledge amount. To do so, visit our campaign page. The green “Back This Project” button has been replaced with a blue “Manage Your Donation” button. Click the icon and enter a new amount, or choose a new incentive.
Can I get more than one reward level?
Yes, you can! Just choose the highest level, but make your pledge the total amount for all the levels you want. Then, just shoot us a message to let us know.
Will the associate producer and executive producer credits be listed on IMDB?
We will submit all associate producer and executive producer credits to IMDB along with our cast and crew list. In addition, silver and gold patrons will also receive associate producer credit.

If your reward level includes items to be shipped to Mexico or Canada, please add an additional $6 for each item in your reward level to cover the added shipping fees. All other international backers please add $10 for each item in your reward level to cover the added shipping fees.
