Twenty Feet Close tells a profound story that we believe captures the very essence of what it means to be "good to life". No matter how difficult things have been for you, it is never too late to be honest to yourself and others and face your challenges- even if death lingers just around the corner. We want to tell this story because we believe in it. We believe in the characters. We believe in the message. And, most importantly, we believe that you will feel the same way when you see this film. We want you to see and experience it, and you can help us make that possible.

Why do we still need funding?

So far, we have done everything we possibly can to bring this project to its current state, but we have finally arrived at that inevitable road block- lack of funds. To make this film the best that it can be we still need funds for:

-A Composer: Finding the right composer will make the film everything that we had hoped for and will truly bring this story to life. Unfortunately, this essential musical component can be quite expensive.

-Festival Entry Fees: This becomes very expensive very fast, as these entry fees add up so quickly. Our ultimate goal is to get this film accepted into as many film festivals as possible. This is the best way to get it seen and recognized.

-Production Reimbursements: We have an ongoing list of reimbursements that must be met from the production stage of the film. Expenses such as travel, gas, equipment, props, costumes, food, supplies, car rentals, shooting permits, insurance, etc. all still need to be paid before we can move on. 

-Miscellaneous Post Production Expenses: Miscellaneous they may be, these expenses are numerous and very costly. From travel expenses to blank DVD's to anti-anxiety medication (joking) everything requires precious funds.

So again, thank you for any and every contribution made and we look forward to sharing the completed film with you and many others!
