We want to shoot our next film in scenic Elgin, Illinois! We've lined up some talented actors and a great crew. We've filled out the necessary forms and paperwork. We've set dates and borrowed gear. We've got a great story. But...
...you know what the But is. It's money. We can beg and borrow all we want, but some things cost money. Like batteries. And filming permits. And tapes to record onto. And hard drives to keep all the media on. And insurance!
So- your funding will go towards funding the things we absolutely have to pay for. As an experienced Chicago area film company, we've got a number of great things to offer you, if you donate.
I want to pledge more than $25 but I'm too far away to attend the pre-premiere: can I get something else instead?
We don't want ANY of our great supporters to miss out on the fun but we know that the world is bigger than the Chicagoland area. If you're not from around these parts but you still want to pledge at the $50, $100, or $1000 level you can trade in your -pre-premiere tickets for other great rewards such as our Handmade Hipster Care Package (Everything you need to let your Filmsnobbicus Hipsterata out) or a personalized thank you video featuring the director and members of the cast just for you.
Don't let distance keep us apart! Love will find a way!
Mumblecore is a genre of filmmaking defined by being ultra low budget, ultra low tech with an emphasis on the relationships between the characters rather than flashy production tricks.
"Night Train" tells the story of a girl on the run who takes the last train out of Chicago one night and sleeps through her normal train station and ends up at the end of the line in Elgin. She meets a guy with a secret at the train station and he keeps her company during the night while she waits for the morning train.
