**UPDATE: We may have met our goal but we purposely set a very low one to ensure that we would get the minimum amount of funds we would need to shoot the film. Our total didn't account for post-production and a lot of other things that we will eventually need to pay for so please still donate if you were planning on it.

We'll be able to put it to very good use. (and won't have to ask you later!)
______

5 cameras.

18 hours.

One train from New York City to Cleveland, Ohio.

This February, 12 filmmakers, journalists, playwrights, actors, and friends will be taking to the railways to shoot a collaborative, verite-style Train Movie. Armed with basic character sketches and interactions, we'll attempt to create a work that blends reality and narrative to explore the American landscape, the unique nature of train travel in the digital age, and the relationships that can develop between travelers.

Created, improvised and shot in one 36-hour whirlwind ride across middle America. Won't you be a part of the experiment?

***
We've bought our tickets but we still need money to cover our lens adapters, hard drives and more.

Donate and be a part of truly independent and collaborative filmmaking.

Directed by: Gina Telaroli

Story by: Annie Novak, C. Mason Wells, Daniel Kasman, Elizabeth McKee, Elizabeth Nolan Brown, Eric Phillips-Horst, Gina Telaroli, Ian Parker, Ian Westcott, Justin Bland, Katharine Henner, Kurt Shulenberger, Michael Lieberman & Molly Brolin

Produced by Meerkat Media and Goddamn Cobras.
