Rudy + Neal Go Fishing

$16,870

152

This is a film about two guys going fishing in South Florida's beautiful waters. But it's not your ordinary fishing trip. 

Meet Rudy and Neal. 

Rudy is a U.S. Army veteran suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Neal is a tournament angler with an unusual professional background.

Fishing is part of Rudy's therapy. 

There’s a lot at stake for veterans with PTSD -- 22 veterans commit suicide every day in America.

Rudy spent a majority of his military career in multiple war zones and when Neal is not competing in a fishing competition, he makes a living cutting hair in Miami. Watch how the simplicity and tranquility of fishing in this remote paradise allows this vet to reconnect with nature and start to heal.

We are looking to fund the post production process-- the edit, music composition, and final finishing costs. And we need your help to complete this film. 

Risks and challenges

We've been self-funding the film up until this point-- our team was able to get through production on our own but we need financing through Kickstarter to finish the editing/post production. Our goal is to complete editing of the entire film (estimated to be about 25-30 minutes) this spring so we can enter the festival circuit and get this important story out there.
