FRIENDS, FAMILY, PEOPLE WHO STUMBLED UPON OUR PROJECT:

Time is of the essence. We're committed to our start date, but we need your support. You can make the difference between making the film of our dreams versus us not realizing our potential. We need your support - both your time and your treasures - to get us through production and post-production.

More than anyone, you know our journey. Sonny started out as a diamond-in-the-rough script written by Andrew Disney - a Fort Worth kid with a wicked sense of humor - and after a year of throwing all of our weight behind this project, we're just a few months away from seeing the fruits of our labor and passion.

Searching for Sonny is a film that tells the story of Elliot, Calvin, and Gary who return to their high school reunion to discover that their old buddy, Sonny, is missing under mysterious circumstances. After run-ins with the law, an ex-girlfriend, and the corpse of the high school quarterback, the mystery turns meta when they realize that everything happening seems eerily similar to a play they performed in high school – a play Sonny wrote.
