On his first day on the job, a geometry teacher mixes up his medications to potentially disastrous results.

About this project

We're a Kickstarter Staff Pick!

Check out the Austin Chronicle's profile of the campaign!

Be a part of a hilarious new short comedy by the two-time Independent Spirit Award nominated filmmaker Bryan Poyser (LOVE & AIR SEX, LOVERS OF HATE, DEAR PILLOW) that will star Zach Cregger (ABOUT A BOY, GUYS WITH KIDS, founding member of the acclaimed comedy troupe THE WHITEST KIDS U KNOW).

Bryan & Zach had such a good time making the acclaimed, award-winning SXSW hit LOVE & AIR SEX (previously titled THE BOUNCEBACK), they've decided to team up again for another "fun-comfortable" comedy.

The short is called MORE THAN 4 HOURS and it's about a geometry teacher who mixes up his medication on his first day on the job, to disastrous results. 

Our plan is to shoot the short film in September, but it'll only happen if we raise $7,000. That money will go toward cast, locations, set decoration, camera rental package, grip equipment, editing, post-production, etc. - all the stuff that goes into making a kick-ass short.

If we make our goal, we aim to get it on the festival circuit early next year.

We've got some fun Perks cooked up. Our "entry level" Perk, at $10, is called WHAT'S UP, DOC? and it gives Zach & Bryan an opportunity to cure what ails you.*

After you donate, we'll send you a quick survey to fill out and describe any medical condition you've been experiencing. We will prescribe some medication for you, via a private message or via social media (if you want to be brave).

*Bryan & Zach are not medically licensed professionals. The medications are made-up and for entertainment purposes only. If you are having a medical emergency, please call 911.

At the $25 level or above, you'll get your prescription AND you'll get to take part in a "virtual premiere" of the film before anyone else gets to see it.

At the $50 level or above, you'll get to take part in a "virtual work-in-progress screening" so you can help us make the movie as good and as funny as it can be.

We've got a lot of other great perks as well - like an online chat with Bryan & Zach about whatever you want, a special digital download of all of Bryan's films, and an opportunity to get "naming rights" to one of the main characters in the film itself!

Please consider backing this project. It will be under 10 minutes, and for as little as $10, we promise you at least 10 laughs, chortles or guffaws. $1 per laugh. That's not bad.

Risks and challenges

Even if we reach our funding goal, pulling this project off in less than 2 months will be a challenge, as is every film project. But given Bryan's successful track record - writing & directing 3 feature films that all got distribution - we feel that we can get it done.
