About this project

Producer/Director Claude Reid will produce and Direct Fairfield Music driven Movie. While this is a comedy we really want it to have some great music in it with a soundtrack available on CD and for downloads. (Mockumentary) A one day, outdoor music festival is held to help raise money to provide Television Closed Captioning for the blind.  Everything goes wrong, but they have the time of their lives. Picture SPINAL TAP meets WOODSTOCK. I need 3,000,000 to hire A-List (Celebrities) Stars as well as hire experienced crew. I want to make a movie that the whole world can be proud of. Every penny I raise, will be spent on making the best movie possible.       

 


                                     "Fairfield Music Festival"  

                                Director/Producer: Claude Reid

                                   Screenplay By: Kyle Owens

LOGLINE: A one day, outdoor music festival is held to help raise money to provide television close captioning for the blind. Everything goes wrong, but they have the time of their lives.

SIMILAR TYPES OF MOVIES: SPINAL TAP, WOODSTOCK, BEST IN SHOW, (the feel of Comedy Improv)

SYNOPSIS: BOBBY SIMON wants to give back to her community by having an outdoor music festival for her favorite charity. She teams with the Vision of Light Charity out of Utah which provides television closed captioning for the blind. Joining her is her pal WALLY and between the two of them they try and meet all the disasters that head their way while cameraman REGGIE films the whole thing for posterity.

Things get off to a rocky start as the only band that shows up at first is FLAT ROD. While they are a good rock and roll band they have one minor flaw. They can't always remember the words to their songs and one of the members of the band continually believes he's in Cleveland instead of Fairfield.

The first problem the festival encounter are phones. Bobby ordered cell phones for the day to promote the show and contact the bands coming to the festival, but Wally thought it was better to get the local funeral director to put the phones in because he needed the work because people are living longer now. Unfortunately after the phones are hooked up with land lines you can only call the person next to you which meant Bobby could only tell people how to get to the festival to those that were already there.

They limp along with a smaller crowd than expected. A slight problem with the food which either has a very high mark up or it's made of gold. The outdoor toilets finally arrived, well sort of- a large truck of children's potty chairs arrive instead. The zoning board is going to shut them down because they don't have handrails across the front of the stage to prevent the talent from falling off (it might be a 9-11 thing). But Bobby was able to negotiate a compromise by having the singers wear helmets while performing.

Finally the night ends with fireworks- well actually its air horns. They're a little safer than fireworks (and Wally did get a good deal on them), but they can still be dangerous if you hold them too close to your ear or swallow one.

The show ends at night with a blast from the air horns and a freeze frame of everyone on stage jumping up and shouting "Rock and Roll!"

Risks and challenges

Every budget has a risk- for example, we are people and unfortunately things happen, we get sick, or unforeseen occurrence happens. With that in mind if cast or crew get sick, it can delay production and can even cause the film to go over budget, (This can cause the Producer to run out of funds, it happens a lot more then you can imagine in production) in fact there are many things that can cause film to go over budget. You always have to have a plan A. You can cut down on your shooting days by doing less takes. Instead of doing six takes you do three takes on the set, instead of shooting sixty days, perhaps cut it down to thirty days. There are many ways to get over obstacles. I will try my best and do everything I can to avoid going over budget, I can not make any guarantees, but again, I will do my best. The last thing a Producer/Director wants to do is go over budget, but these are some of the things that Happen from time to time.
