'A Short Film About Ice Fishing' is a comedy to be shot in Brown County, South Dakota and does NOT feature any actual ice fishing.
We follow two friends, Zach and Levi, as they pack up their truck for a day of ice fishing. They load up with rods, beer, a trusty dog, and drive out to Elm Lake. But they have no way to cut the ice. Through a series of increasingly poor decisions (and a stick of dynamite) they accidentally blow up their truck and sink it into the lake, leaving them stranded in the middle of nowhere.
The film features a cast of Brown County locals (including the dog) and we will be shooting in beautiful South Dakota during the bitter cold of January.
Most of the money that we are raising will go towards the pyrotechnic aspect of the film. The more money we raise, the bigger and better the explosion (and subsequent laughs). Everyone in South Dakota is ready and waiting, we just need to hit our goal and press go!
