Almost five years ago we set out to write a feature based on a misguided and misdirected road trip we took down south.
Ass Backwards was born. The story follows loveable losers Kate and Chloe who fancy themselves as high powered stylish New York City gals- even though they share a water bed, sell their eggs for cash and think a table at Starbucks is a corner office. They take a road trip back to their hometown to claim the beauty pageant crown that eluded them as children.
Ass Backwards is written by and stars well....us... June Diane Raphael (Year One, Party Down, Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and Casey Wilson (SNL, Happy Endings) and is directed by Chris Nelson.
Our other amazing cast includes Alicia Silverstone, Vincent Dinofrio,Jon Cryer, Brian Geraghty, Marcia Jean Kurtz, Jake Johnson, Paul Scheer and Bob Odenkirk
So what happened?
ASS GOOD ASS IT GETS
We shot 19 days of our movie until...how to put this...we couldn't shoot anymore. Money that was supposed to come in simply didn't and we had to shut down. Every indie filmmaker's nightmare became our ugly reality. We have been working tirelessly since August on raising the rest of the money to finish our movie, and we are almost there. But we NEED YOUR HELP!
TWO ASSES ARE BETTER THAN ONE
We are so close, but we can’t do this alone. We need more money than the $50,000 goal we set, but that amount will ensure our camera's start rolling next month. With your generosity we can finish the film! Every single dollar helps. Truly. These mugs ain't getting any younger and every penny you donate will go directly toward our final shoot days and will be on the screen!
From the deepest wells of our hearts...
Thank you and Love you,
June and Casey*
