REAL KICKSTARTER GOAL: $100,000. LAST DAY APPROACHING! Whatever you can give, will help.
ABOUT THE STORY: Home is the story of a man named Jack, suffering from mental illness, whose goal is to move out of the group home where he resides and into a home of his own. By doing so he hopes to rebuild his life, reconnect with his estranged son, and put himself back on a path to "normalcy." Despite what some see as difficult subject matter (a man dealing with mental illness) Home is filled with wonderful characters, a lot of humor, strong drama, hope... and ultimately, an uplifiting ending. More information about the story can be found on our website: www.homethefilm.com. It's a terrific script that will make a great film. And right now, we really need your help. Please join us in bringing this story to the screen!
WHAT'S GOING ON NOW: Casting is completed. The script has attracted great acting talent, with Donnie Wahlberg, S. Epatha Merkerson, Victor Williams, James McDaniel, Isiah Whitlock, Elena Hurst, all tentatively attached. Location Scouting is currently underway in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Key Crew Members are coming on board for what has become a passion project for us all. This feature length independent drama will shoot here in Brooklyn, NY this June.
ABOUT THE (ridiculous) GOAL of $2,165: IT WAS A JOKE! YOU CAN'T MAKE A MOVIE LIKE THIS FOR $2,165! IT WAS A GIMMICK (Uh... that hopefully doesn't backfire). Of course, we really need more. A lot more. The cost to do this film the "right" way; paying people something, casting, scouting, hiring SAG actors, renting equipment, buying insurance, paying for locations, renting trucks, renting editing equipment and supplies, paying for music, and feeding people something other than pizza is $975,000. But don't panic! We've slashed our budget, asked for favors, talked people into working for free and KNOW we can make a great movie for $100,000. So PLEASE look at the rewards and give what you can. And PLEASE tell as many friends as possible. Find out more information about the film at www.homethefilm.com. And "friend" us at www.facebook.com/homethefilmNYC. The more you can help, the better Home will be. Starting now, we have ONE DAY LEFT. So, in advance, Thank You!
