Wanna make a movie?
So do we. Let’s make it together.
We want to make a great film, one that is heartwarming, and inspiring. We were blessed to find an incredible writer to make it happen, Stef Piermattei. After reading her script "Benson Bye", we just knew we had to start right away! it is that good! but we need your help!
The basics: Benson Bye is slated to begin shooting in Orlando, FL. June 17 2013. The funding earned through Kickstarter will be used to begin principal photography and secure additional capital prior to shooting. The more support we’re able to raise on Kickstarter, the closer we get to fully funding the film and shooting on schedule. If we reach our financial goal of $25,000 we will have real momentum, which is essential for making an indie film succeed. Your contribution and interest is critical to get this train going! And we promise it's going to be a great ride. Any amount of support over $5 gets you behind-the-scenes access, and we’re going to share images, thoughts, videos, and questions as we go. (But we won’t ruin the ending for you. Promise).

Independent film is a largely do-it-yourself endeavor. But doing it yourself is often lonely, time-consuming, and nearly impossible. Crowdfunding allows filmmakers to “do it” with others. We want to do this film with YOU! We hope you’ll come along for the ride.
From the bottom of our heart THANK YOU!!!!!
