DIY

We could not have made BOOSTER without the incredible support of our fellow filmmakers, friends and families.  We shot the film in Boston where I grew up.  We made the film with a group of young filmmakers who devoted themselves to making the best film possible with little else in return.  It was truly a labor of love.

BOOSTER has been accepted by the SXSW Film Festival to premiere in the narrative competition (along with seven other films).  SXSW is one of the most prominent film festivals in the U.S. and has a reputation for programming provocative and edgy films.  It is an enormous honor for us to be a part of such a great festival. 

We are launching this Kickstarter campaign because we still have a great deal of work to do to prepare the film for our world premiere in March.  Although we have been able to get tens of thousands of dollars in services donated to the film, some costs are unavoidable.  We are asking you to help us get through this final push so that we can present the best possible film at SXSW. 

This is the first Kickstarter campaign for this project, as we do not take asking people for money lightly. 

THE STORY

When Simon’s brother is arrested for armed robbery, he is asked to commit a string of similar crimes in an attempt to get his brother acquitted.  Caught between loyalty to his brother, and his own will, Simon is forced to examine his life. 

THE CAST

The two male leads are played by non-actors familiar with the world depicted in the film.  Talented actors from New York and Boston play the supporting roles, along with Seymour Cassel (Faces, Rushmore) who is a veteran of independent film.

WITH YOUR DONATION WE WILL DO THE FOLLOWING TO PREPARE OUR FILM FOR EXHIBITION -

TITLE DESIGN
HD MASTERS
FINAL SOUND MIX
ORIGINAL SCORE
POSTER + WEBSITE DESIGN
FESTIVAL MARKETING MATERIALS

THANK YOU very much for taking the time to look at our project.  We are grateful for your support.

Best,
Matt
