About this project
***UPDATE - CHECK OUT A BEHIND THE SCENES LOOK AT AN OUTTAKE FROM THE PAINTBALL SCENE BELOW***
MR. INTANGIBLES has been a labor of love from the beginning. Over the course of 3 years, we wrote, re-wrote, raised money and finally shot our passion project. We pulled together an amazing cast and crew and shot a film that is both heartfelt and hilarious. And now we are seeking your help to finish post production and bring this film to a theater near you!
Inspired by (probably) true events, MR. INTANGIBLES is the story of Billy “Junk” Wainwright, a guy who only loves two things: his girlfriend, Celia, and his college football team, The Bulldogs. But when Junk finds out that Celia is leaving him to date the team’s star quarterback and nation’s golden boy, Tate Armstrong, Junk’s world is turned upside down and kicked in the nuts.
Faced with losing the two things that defined his existence, Junk sets out to get back the one that really matters: his football team. If he manages to get Celia back, that would be great too. Realizing the common thread to both of his problems is Tate Armstrong, Junk aims to destroy the man who ruined his life. Now Junk is faced with the question which plagues people of all walks of life: how can an average guy compete with someone who is stronger, smarter, more attractive, and an all-around better human being?
Through his many failed attempts to sabotage a man who is un-sabotageable, Junk realizes that Tate Armstrong is not his problem; Junk is Junk’s problem. He accepts that he can’t get back the things that used to define him, so he needs to redefine himself. He doesn’t need to be better than Tate Armstrong (because he never will be), he just needs to be better than the guy he was.

WHAT WE NEED:
We completed principal photography and have finished our edit, but we still have a few more things we need to complete before the film is ready to be shown on the big screen:
-Color Correction ***NOTE: all of the clips in the video above are not color corrected (which make the image seem flat and dark). The color correction will really make the image pop and give it a more filmic quality***
-Visual Effects/After Effects
-Music Composing and Licensing
All of these are extremely important to polish the film and get it out to places where it can be seen. If we could do these jobs ourselves, we would, but since these are such specialized fields we are raising money to pay professionals to do what they do best. The film is already great, but with your help and contributions, we can make it something truly special.
Thank you so much for your support! We can't wait to share MR. INTANGIBLES with you and the rest of the world.
Risks and challenges
This film is 99% complete. All of these post-processes have either already begun or have people locked in place and ready to work, now it is just a matter of getting the money to pay for it. That being said, there is always the chance of a natural disaster or meteor strike a la Deep Impact or Armageddon...but other than that, we feel extremely confident that your contribution will be used exactly how we have intended it and you will be seeing MR. INTANGIBLES soon!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
