My name is Crystal and I am the writer/star of GIRL CLOWN.
Thank you so much for your interest in this film,
a project I have been writing and workshopping for over 2 years.

Please view the video message above!

What is GIRL CLOWN?
GIRL CLOWN is a short romantic comedy about a girl named Laura,
who is painfully shy.
She lives by herself, works as a secretary, and she's secretly in love with
her next door neighbor. In a desperate attempt to overcome her shyness,
Laura decides to become a professional clown.
This is the story of meek little Laura entering into
the colorful and crazy world of clowns, and attempting to find true love.

The film features a vibrant cast of colorful and crazy characters...
like "Dainty Daisy" the Clown Agent (who is not so dainty),
and "Loony Larry" the obnoxious party clown.

What kind of rewards do I receive for my donation?
We have so many fun and cool rewards
(..like clown noses, magic tricks, walk-on roles, and more!)
Please check them out! They are listed in the right-hand column.

If you would like to donate and give the reward as a gift to someone else,
you can do that, too! You will need to make the donation in your name,
and after our deadline we will send you an email requesting the address/info
of the person who will be receiving the reward.

Where did you get the idea for the film?
The idea for the film came from my own experiences
working as a professional clown in New York City.
As I would walk down the NYC streets going to a gig in my clown costume,
people would always stop in their tracks, smile and wave, come up to me,
or talk to me.
They were fascinated that a real clown was walking down the street
or sitting on the subway with them!

How does Kickstarter work?
Kickstarter is "crowd funding". It is an all-or-nothing deal.
ONLY if we reach or exceed our goal, will we receive the funds.
You won't be charged (or get any awesome gifts)
if we do NOT make our goal of $7,500.
However, if we meet or EXCEED our goal,
we will receive all of the funds pledged
(and everyone will get their rewards!)
Every little bit helps, and we greatly appreciate any amount you can give!

What will the money raised go toward?
Every penny (minus the Kickstarter fees) raised in this Kickstarter campaign will go directly to the "GIRL CLOWN" movie budget. (Meaning, your money goes directly to the funding of the film.)

When will you be shooting the film?
We are planing to start shooting to start this Spring, 2011, on location in New York City.

Thank you so much for your interest and support of this project and the people involved, and for supporting independent artists and independent film!!
