Lust for Love is a romantic comedy feature starring Fran Kranz, Dichen Lachman, Caitlin Stasey and others.

ONLY HOURS TO GO!!!  -- Help us finish strong! We structured our rewards so that it's better value to buy the movie now than when we finish it. Pledge today and you can get the DVDs signed, behind the scenes access, the Associate Producer credit, and a warm heart from knowing that your purchase has actually made this movie better! Many of the rewards simply won't be available once the campaign ends.

Our Kickstarter goal was set at the minimum level at which we could make this movie. A plan dependent on cheeky favors, breaking rules, and a few compromises. It's still going to be that kind of movie, but every additional pledge allows us to minimize those compromises and lift the quality of the film. So, if you're a new backer contemplating a pledge, please come aboard. And if you're already a backer, well hold onto your hat, because it's full steam ahead!

Every pledge lifts the quality of the movie and is gratefully appreciated!

**************************************************************************

Lust for Love is a independent feature film we're shooting in LA this December. We're a group of friends who have worked and created together over the last few years and want to step up and make a feature. With a little support through the Kickstarter platform we believe we can make a wonderful movie.

How Kickstarter works: People pledge any amount and choose a reward. At the end of our 28 day Kickstarter campaign, if the combined total of all pledges for our project meets our $70,000 goal, then the credit cards of those who pledge are charged and we receive the funds to make our film. If we don't meet our goal, then the money is not withdrawn from your account and no rewards are provided. If we exceed our $70,000 goal then the extra funds will be used to make the movie even better. Aside from a 5% Kickstarter fee and a 3-5% Amazon credit card processing fee, all funds raised will be used directly in the production of the film.

The story: Lust for Love is the story of an innocent guy (Fran Kranz) who wins the love of his childhood sweetheart (TBA), but since he’s been holding out for her his whole life, he's so embarrassing that he’s quickly dumped. Convinced he needs more experience with women to win her back, he convinces the sweetheart's girlfriend (Dichen Lachman) to teach him how to woo women.
