Finding Melody! is the story of Miles, a chorus member living in a whimsical musical world where only the leading man can get the girl. When he spots the girl of his dreams, Miles vows to rise above the chorus and win her heart by starring in his very own spectacular musical finale.

This film is being funded primarily by a grant from Studio 22, but that money will only cover a portion of the production costs. In order to ensure that we have enough money for equipment rentals, costumes, permits, transportation, and food for our hardworking cast and crew, we need your support!

Risks and challenges

Our project is hugely ambitious, as movie musicals are a largely untapped genre for student film. The director/producer team has been working on this film for almost a year and has a detailed plan for how to execute the logistics of the project. We have a talented and experienced crew, who is already working hard in pre-production in order to ensure that this project comes to life.

Our biggest challenges are accommodating a large ensemble and crew, finding the right locations, and affording rental prices of industry standard equipment.

The director has one Studio 22 project, an animated film, under his belt. His experience directing such an ambitious project has prepared him to face the challenges that come with creating a movie musical. The producer has produced four short films at Northwestern and has the experience and know-how to pull off the complicated logistics of the film.
