Why would you still support this project when the minimum goal has been reached? Because the minimum goal is just that -- the minimum I  had to raise to get any of this funding at all, and therefore I didn't want to set the goal too high. I'm super-grateful for the $10,000+ we have managed to raise so far -- it's incredibly helpful. The expenses we need to cover however are closer to twice that. I don't expect to raise that kind of money in just a few more days but every bit helps so, if you like the trailer please support the campaign. Check out the amazing awards to the right and be part of a very exciting journey  to bring this film to life!

THE FILM Based on the novel by Andy Zeffer, "Going Down in LA-LA Land" is a candid, sexy, and outrageously funny look at what and actor can -- and will do -- to survive in Hollywood.  This dark comedy takes a riveting and uncensored look at our celebrity-obsessed culture and some people's need to be loved, adored, and adulated at any cost! Please watch the trailer above to learn more about the film and check out our facebook page with lots of pictures.

OUR GOAL "Going Down in LA-LA Land" is almost finished and it will have its world premiere as the Closing Night film at the Miami Gay & Lesbian Film Festival on May 1st. Other upcoming screenings confirmed are Opening Night at the Rainbow Film Festival in Honolulu, and the gay film festivals in Milan, Zurich and Boston, also in May. Many more festivals will  be announced very soon. After its festival run, we are  also planning to take the films to select theaters and release it on DVD and VOD.

YOUR SUPPORT Please help us finish the film by essentially pre-ordering the DVD for $30, (Check out all the great rewards offered to the left: premiere tickets! signed DVDs! your name in the film's credits! Associate Producer credit!) and join us in bringing "Going Down in LA-LA Land" to life and to audiences everywhere. 

Like our other films "Going Down in LA-LA Land" was made on a very low budget, thanks to an amazing and hardworking cast and crew. Still it's our most ambitious and expensive film to date, and we are out of funds. To help cover the final costs of finishing the film (color corrections, sound mixing, credits) as well as promotional expenses (poster artwork, website, festival submissions) we need your support. Donate what you can and please help us spread the word about this campaign on facebook, twitter, and email.

I'm personally thrilled with how the film is coming together and  believe it's my best one yet. I hope to be able to share it with you very soon!

Sincerely, 

Casper Andreas (writer/director)
