Help us hit some stretch goals! 

We started this campaign with a full plan in place to make a polished, professional movie at 30,000 dollars. These stretch goals open new possibilities to take that plan to another level, and with time to go in our campaign we owe it to you to push to make the best movie possible.

After watching our pitch to our moms (directly above), CLICK THE VIDEO BELOW to watch a fake TRAILER (more of a proof of concept) where we use a bunch of different famous actors to bring Dale and his story to life!

Risks and challenges

Making a movie has a lot of moving pieces! There is location scouting, story-boarding, vans full of equipment, green rooms full of actors, special effects, costumes, props, and a post-production process of editing, color-correcting, sound mixing, scoring, graphics. This takes a big team and a lot of effort.

Together, Matt, Jim, and Zach have made over 50 videos and have encountered every imaginable on-set issue including a tornado touching down in the Rockaways (yes, that really happened).

These fellas know how to work around seemingly insurmountable challenges (like shooting a swamp creature in the middle of Times Square, hint: do it at 5:00 am).

They also work as Producers, Directors, and Project Managers, and have proven to be flexible, professional, and careful planners. You could say the only risk for them, is not taking one. (Or if a super-villain decided to swoop in and destroy everything).

Thank you for your support!
