Help us make our feature film!

We started with a great script and $15,000 dollars. Now we have a full crew, talented cast and a RED Camera Package. Basically, everyone involved is completely donating their time and talents to make our feature film happen on a shoe-string budget. But even when you aren't paying people, there are some things that just aren't free... like food, equipment and gas money.

That's where you come in!

We are in need of $6000 to ensure the success of our shoot. It would be amazing to get $8,000 or $10,000 or even $25,000 -- but we know that we can at least get the film made with $6000.

But hey, what's this film about anyway?

PREMISE:
"MEAN" is a realistic drama set in the backdrop of a Southern California High School. After a nasty rumor is spread, an innocent teenage girl is pushed past her emotional limit. Lost in the world of social networking, a concerned mother walks the fine line of interfering with her daughter’s world. The story is driven by the characters and their conflicting objectives.

Who's directing?

Jeff Phillips, the writer/director, has been a working writer-producer for 15 years, as well as a respected graphic novelist. Currently, he has feature deals at Warner Brothers, Sony, Spyglass and Dream Works. His track record includes several big budget action, sci-fi, or four quadrant family flicks. He has worked with individuals such as Steven Spielberg, Jerry Bruckheimer, Oren Aviv, and Jeffrey Katzenberg.

Be a part of the film in any way you can, and we will be sure to keep you involved as much as possible. Your help is more then appreciated... it is going towards making our dream come true!
