WE MADE IT! THANK YOU!

Here's how we will use any additional funds that may come in during the bit of time that remains:

– ADDITIONAL CAMERA EQUIPMENT & CREW

We have budgeted for all of the gear and crew necessary for executing a top-quality film, but there is always room for adding production value in terms of camera movement, focus, and efficiency. The more hands we have, the more efficient each shot, which means potentially getting a greater variety of takes for the final product!

– BROADER FILM FESTIVAL REACH

We have a list of priority festival submissions budgeted. We all would like to get as many people around the world as possible to see our film, so additional funding will mean many more festival submissions and help subsidize publicity-related costs, such as printing posters, DVD duplication, and shipping.

Imagine you're living the life of your dreams, then someone more powerful plans to destroy it. How far would you go to preserve your world?

Fork is a film about standing at the crossroads of life and having to make a decision, even though both paths lead to the unknown. Dustin is the adult son of a rancher whose operation has succumbed to ongoing draught. The ranch is everything to Dustin–it's literally the life of his dreams and the only life he knows. And he's not going to let a wealthy buyer take it away from him and his family.

Which path does he take? And does he end up the hero he expects to be?

David Huffman | Writer/Director

Kris Allen | Composer

The Fork production team is thrilled to be collaborating with the extremely talented Kris Allen in creating the film's original music. His ability to strike the right emotional chord is crucial to the story's success. Plus we love him.

Tito Reynoso | Director of Photography

 Our director of photography, Tito hails from Mexico City and adds nearly two decades' experience to the team. He's brought beautiful images to life for feature films, TV series, music videos, and advertising campaigns, both in Mexico and the United States.

Eric Keith | Producer

Roger Strong | Executive Producer

Our team continues to grow, as we close in on the shoot. Other personnel includes sound technicians, stunt coordinators, horse wranglers, and the whole herd of folks it takes to achieve this dream–including you!

Michael Ray Escamilla | "Dustin"

Briton Green | "Deputy"

We are still in the process of casting the additional two roles of "Daddy" and "Sheriff." Check back for updates and announcements!

With your help, we'll make a beautiful, tense, and touching film that exhibits a high production value at a low budget. Your contributions support:

  • Cast & crew
  • Location rental & permits
  • Props, picture cars, & set pieces
  • Horse & wranglers
  • Catering
  • Transportation
  • Production design
  • Post production
  • Festival fees

Even a small contribution goes a long way toward making this the best possible film.

The life choices we make, large and small, hold drastic consequences for ourselves and those around us. My vision is to pair this universal challenge with the equally universal desire for approval, in order to create a visually and emotionally stunning film. Together, we can achieve this! – David Huffman

*Footnote to the $1,000 pledge - photograph reward

Fork actually began as a 1,000-word short story, inspired by a photograph by Hannah Huffman, for a collaboration called the 1K Project. To read the story, go here.

Risks and challenges

Driving to work has risks. If you blow a tire, or get in an accident, you call-in and let your people know that you're going to be late or be in tomorrow. Much the same way, in the event of a catastrophe, and the film throws a shoe, we will call-in and let you know. Then we'll revise and carry out a new plan. We will make this film. It will be awesome.
