About this project
"Movies aren't made, they are forced into existence." - Laura Ziskin
I love movies that inspire me. So I'm going to make one that hopefully does that for others.
Films have the power to affect life. My vision is to tell stories that make people laugh, and cry, cause one to feel empowered, to hurdle any obstacle in their life. By accomplishing this, we are better people individually, and corporately.
My job: I will make this feature film with the money raised from Kickstarter.com. That means that every donation, every supporter, every angel that backs this project is doing so to help bring something out of nothing. These funds are not intended to finish the project, or get it started, but to do both. At the end of 6 months we will all have, in hand, a finished movie you can be proud of, feel good about being a part of, and share with others knowing you've done something significant.
The quote above couldn't be more true. I know it sounds audacious to make a movie for 15k, so please let me explain. If I know anything, it's how to make a film at a low budget. Not only make a film, but tell a story that resonates with human beings. Without further ado, please see our site below and watch the trailer if you haven't already. This is my case in point: shot in one and a half days with no budget. This movie will be loved, and will be seen by millions, that is our goal.
Story is everything, and our script has received rave reviews by industry veterans. Our existing relationships with major distributors will offer many opportunities when the movie is completed.
Please help support this little movie that will be. Please pass this link on to friends and family. It's a numbers game like anything. Please feel encouraged to be outrageously generous. The more money we receive, the stronger this project can be. We hope you enjoy our rewards and can't wait to meet you and shake your hand as a partner. Thank you, Sincerely, thanks.

PS: FYI: Your card will not be charged if our goal is not reached. Please pass on...THANKS!!
