Through this Kickstarter Campaign, we are raising initial funds to cover pre-production costs for this picture. The actual production cost, which is much greater than $10,000, will be financed through individual and corporate investors. The FT Project is a faith-based action-packed film that will have a huge impact on the viewers. Yes, it is possible to have an excellent film that people will want to watch and will want to recommend to others without all the garbage Hollywood puts into them. This thriller, with all its twists and turns, will have you sitting on the edge of your seat to see what will happen next. This is a message whose time has come. We plan to use every penny that comes in to take care of all our start up cost and to give us a financial foundation to move us forward to producing the film. We have actors, locations and crew ready to go. We simply need your help to make this film a reality. If you are curious at all to see how this film will turn out, then share this page with everyone you know (and even those you don't know). This will only be possible with your help!
What do I get out of this if I contribute?
The benefits to you as a contributor depend on how much you want to give. Investing in this project is a win-win for all of us. Seeing your name scroll through the end credits of the movie is a huge thrill, and so is getting an autographed copy of the poster, or a DVD. Getting a chance to hang out on a movie set and meet all the people who work hard to make a movie work is an experience that you will never forget!
Sounds great! What do I do now?

The FT Project family thanks you for stopping by, and we can't wait to see your name in the "special thanks" section in the end credits of the movie!!!
Risks and challenges
Every project comes with its own set of challenges and we are already set to handle them before they occur. Any feature film is a major work in progress that requires many hours and much cooperation to complete. We already have a great team of qualified producers put together that have been doing our homework for months in preparation for this film. We have multiple actors already lined up and plenty more to call if one can not meet our production schedule. We have multiple locations already chosen in case the timing does not work out for one of them. We have an attorney to help us along the way should legal contractual needs arise. We have a projected production schedule already in place that we are ready to move forward with depending on the funding. We already have our plans in place for the next phase of raising funds as soon as we get our initial funding completed.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
