Your BFF, Bear Frazer, is raising funds to shoot scenes from his script 'The Bam Theory' and wants you to become apart of his MMA Movie Franchise!

This is Your BFF, Bear Frazer. I'm a journalist who has written for nearly thirty publications including FIGHT! Magazine, Outburn, Metal-Edge, The Source and 101D.com.

I'm reaching out to the Kickstarter.com nation about a project I'm working on called The Bam Theory. It's a Mixed Martial Arts dramady that follows the life of Bam Thomas, a skillful 23-year-old who dreams about fighting in the UFC. He is hesitant, however, to shoot down the stars because of the tragedy that has stricken him - be it his father's suicide, his ex-girlfriend reminding him weekly that he is a failure or the dead-end job he works just to help his warmhearted mother - a part time maid - pay an outrageous mortgage in Hill City's fierce foreclosure market.

Ultimately, Bam feels as if God has abandoned him and is convinced dreams for the "common folk" are merely broken dreams. But with the encouragement from his friend DeAndre (who aspires to launch a non-profit), his sexually-curious trainer Kiwi (who desires to brand his upstart gym), his art nerd of a love interest Lily Ann (who wants to become the next Van Gogh) and his supportive mother, Bam finds the motivation to compete in the regional mixed martial arts circuit.

Truthfully speaking, it's not just Bam who fights. It's everyone around him. They are all fighting for the only thing each of them have left - hope. The hope for something better in life.

This is a movie that I feel can become the Rocky franchise of our generation. Of the sport millions around the world, including myself, absolutely love. And ultimately, I believe this movie can further spread awareness about MMA and its lifestyle.

To me, this is a movement, and today, I'm inviting you to become apart of the movement. It's crucial to build this foundation on a grassroots level because it's passionate individuals like yourselves who become apart of the movement and stay determined to get something you love noticed on the biggest scale possible.

I'm attempting to raise 3,200 dollars and that will give me the funds necessary to get the ball rolling. With the moneys raised, I will shoot three scenes from The Bam Theory. I would continue to strengthen the franchise's awareness and attempt to form more strategic partnerships to shoot the movie in its entirety.

For your generous contributions, we have some pretty wicked reward incentives ranging from CDs to autographed merchandise from supporters like UFC fighters Carlos Condit and Jake Shields, as well as metal bands In This Moment and Five Finger Death Punch.

There will be consistent updates and ... who knows? Perhaps there will be other fighters and bands who contribute some more reward incentives in the future. Stay tuned and check back frequently.
