WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT AND GENEROSITY

I have spent the last couple of years working on putting this whole film project together including acquiring the movie rights, working with the book’s author and publisher, writing the script, putting together a team/crew and working on many aspects of filmmaking, meetings and consultations with financiers and producers, and preparing for this Kickstarter campaign. I have had most of my team together for several months now, and it is time for us to make this film.

This is where your generosity comes in. We have gladly spent thousands of dollars already getting to where we are right now, but we need additional funds at this point to take us to the next level.

I want to be open with all of our supporters. We have a three level film production plan.

Level I 

We have a successful Kickstarter campaign. If we are fortunate to have a fan base that supports our Kickstarter goal, this movie will be made. Funds will be used for crew and equipment, legal, insurance, locations and travel.

Level II 

We have contacts already set who will help us raise additional funds after the Kickstarter campaign for Screen Actor Guild (SAG) actors. We want to make a SAG film with great recognizable faces. The better and more recognizable the leads, the better chance we have at a wide distribution of our film. That is, more people will see our film!

Level III 

While this is an indie film, level three would be substantial support to make a studio level film (i.e. cut no corners so to say). While that might seem like a far stretch to some, it’s not insurmountable. We also have contacts ready to set us up with meetings with financiers who if they really like what they see, we could get their support.

No matter what level we achieve, this film will be made. Just think of it. The better we do in raising additional funds after the Kickstarter campaign, the better your donation will look. If we are successful with this crowd funding campaign, we truly feel confident that we will reach a higher level of funding beyond this campaign. BUT again remember, we will make a good movie at any level. SAG actors with audience appeal, desired location costs, post-production and marketing are the real needs for additional funding beyond this campaign.

Your support means so much to us, we appreciate you!

Risks and challenges

Every new great idea seems to come with a price. The funds from this campaign will take care of a lot of the crew, legal, and location costs. The more money we can raise, the better access we'll have to locations, post-production work, etc. One example is, the C.S. Lewis Foundation which owns Lewis's home in Oxford is supportive of us on filming there. Obviously traveling to England to film at his home is a lot more expensive than finding a similar looking location locally. We will do what it takes to make this movie. With that said, we also want to make a great film. We still plan on attracting "name" talent for the lead roles, which will obviously take additional funding from executive producing investors. We are negotiating with financiers for additional funds beyond this campaign, but really need to secure these crowd funding dollars before the other investors come through with their portions. Please be an integral part of this process by donating today. Thank You for your consideration!
