Thank you for visiting our page! We hope you share our enthusiasm for getting INGENIOUS into theaters. As we mentioned in the video, INGENIOUS is based on a true story about two life-long friends, who hit rock bottom before inventing a product that becomes a worldwide phenomenon. 

But INGENIOUS is way more than a movie about a product. It is a story about perseverance and following your dreams, both on the screen and behind the scenes.

Although the making of INGENIOUS has been a labor of love, it hasn’t been easy. We raised production money from the invention that inspired the film. Then, slowly over the past couple of years we have been pulling together funding to give the film the quality post-production it deserves. It has taken a while to get to this point, but we feel it’s been well worth the wait. 

We now have a finished film, beautifully shot on 35mm in scenic Tucson, AZ and an original sound track on Dolby Surround Sound, composed by the world renowned Arizona musician, Howe Gelb.

We made this film on our own and want to distribute it outside the Hollywood system without studio interference or control. That’s why we’ve turned to Kickstarter, for one final fundraising push to help pay the costs connected with getting this movie into theaters. 

The money raised will help pay for:

  • Music rights
  • 35mm prints and digital transfers
  • Local media advertising TV/Radio/Print
  • Other marketing and promotional costs

By backing our project and pledging your support, you are essentially pre-ordering your digital download, DVD or Blu-Ray of the film, all of which include a KICKSTARTER ONLY EXCLUSIVE behind-the-scenes Featurette with Deleted Scenes. (PLEASE NOTE the bonus disc is only available to our KS backers and WiLL NOT be available with the retail DVD/Blue Ray.)

INGENIOUS is a real story about inspiration and perseverance, about not giving up on your dreams. We think this movie speaks to the very heart of what the Kickstarter community represents.

INGENIOUS was cast by award-winning Casting Director, Ronnie Yeskel ("PULP FICTION", "THE SESSIONS")  and features great performances from an All-Star cast.

Two-time Academy Award nominee, JEREMY RENNER (“THE HURT LOCKER”, “THE TOWN,” “THE AVENGERS”, “THE BOURNE LEGACY”)

DALLAS ROBERTS (“WALK THE LINE”, “3:10 TO YUMA”, “THE GREY”)

AYELET ZURER – (“MUNICH”, "ANGELS AND DEMONS", “MAN OF STEEL”)

MARGUERITE MOREAU - ("THE RUNAWAY JURY", "WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER")

EDDIE JEMISON - ("OCEANS ELEVEN", "OCEANS TWELVE", OCEANS THIRTEEN", "WAITRESS")

RICHARD KIND - ("A SERIOUS MAN", "HEREAFTER", "ARGO")

JUDITH SCOTT - ("FLIGHT PLAN", "FRACTURE")

AMANDA ANKA - ("TAXI", "CHERRY FALLS")

All of the actor’s performances are amazing, and for Jeremy Renner fans, his performance is…well, unlike anything you’ve seen him do before, in his first comedic role since "Senior Trip"!

INGENIOUS has been rated R for sexual content and language. It has been featured in fifteen name festivals around the world, and the reviews from those festivals have been overwhelmingly positive; INGENIOUS has won Best Picture and Best Director awards.
