    Level 2 - Rehearsal Room

    You've moved from perfecting your piece at home to sharing it with your maestro. Now the real work begins!

    This reward is two-fold with two separate delivery dates. First, a few weeks after we finish our principal photography, you'll receive three beautiful downloadable backgrounds to be used on your computer or smartphone.

    The fun doesn't stop there, because as we near the movie's premiere, you will also receive a free download of the film's soundtrack. Since the film is centered around the cello rehearsal of a musical genius, you best believe this soundtrack will be gorgeous.

    Level 4 - Final Audition

    You've made it through the first round of auditions. Now you sit in front of the final judges, ready to play your heart out.

    With this level of donation, you will get to experience more than what you see on screen. First off, I will write a personal thank you note, not only because I love writing notes, but because you have made this project happen in a big way.*

    More than that (even though sentimental notes are great), you'll get to experience the fun--and mishaps--we had on set... mostly mishaps. Enjoy this exclusive gag reel available for download!

    Level 5 - String Quartet Performance

    Welcome to your first performance! You have made it past the test rounds to a full audience. It is time to shine!

    This level of donation gets closer to the story and storytelling process. You will receive a PDF Download of the Shooting Script to read before or after watching the final product--you get to decide on that one.

    And that's not all. If I were to back a project for $100, I would want more too. With this level you will also receive a Poster signed by the cast and crew,* three production stills from our week of filming, AND the official team picture taken during production. I'll even photoshop you in, if you send me your super-star photo.

    Feel a part of team yet?

    Level 6 - Concert Hall

    You are moving on to bigger and better things, young apprentice. Now you can play within the resounding walls of a concert hall!

    With this level of donation, you will receive a prop wooden airplane, identical to the prop used on set! This airplane has massive symbolic value within the story, and you will receive it signed by the cast of the film.*

    Want more? We got it. With this level you will receive an exclusive behind-the-scenes package, complete with items like cast and crew interviews, behind-the-scenes photos and footage, a downloadable poster, on-set mishap stories, shot maps, concept art, and much more!

    Level 7 - Worldwide Tour

    You've made it. Sign the contract, cash the check, and get going around the world!

    So what's in it for the world-touring artist? First is your new title: Executive Producer (EP) of A Year Ago Yesterday. You'll see your name up on the big screen right after mine.

    But those are just words, right? Wrong. As an EP, you'll get to visit set for a day during production!*

    Not satisfied? I wouldn't be either. As an EP, you're a part of not only the production process, but the post-production process. You'll receive a password-protected digital link of the first rough cut of the film!

    What else? Your digital download will be sent to you a week before it's sent to other backers. Perks of being along for the ride in post-production.

    Any more? Certainly! You'll receive the PDF download of FIRST DRAFT of this script that I wrote. To give some perspective, I wrote the first draft more than a year ago, it was nearly sixteen pages long, and it has gone through seventeen versions since. Yep, seventeen versions. Things have changed, to say the least.

    Sure, that all works. BUT WAIT, I'm not done yet. Rather than receiving an identical copy of the prop we used on set, I'm offering you one of the real props. That's right, one of only a few wooden airplanes that were filmed in the movie: it'll be yours to keep, signed by the cast.**

    Welcome to the team, Executive Producer. We're glad to have you.

    Levels 1-6 included. Exception: Identical prop airplane.

    *Visits to set will be on the traveler's own expenses. Apologies for any inconvenience.
    **Any physical items will be shipped to US addresses only.

    Includes:
    • Executive Producer Credit
    • Prop Wooden Airplane Used in Film
    • PDF of First Draft of Script

    • Early Digital Download
