Ever notice that your hometown has something really special - but you have no idea how to capture that feeling and share it with hundreds or thousands of other people? I feel you. This film is a time capsule for Factoryville, PA - a sneak peak into small town life complete with music montages, emotional moments and the town's favorite snow plower/grass cutter extraordinaire.

We're trying to raise $2,500 to hire a talented musician from the North Carolina area to score the film. All donations will be put towards the music costs.

The plan - and it's an easy one - is to collect all donations and hire him as the official composer. He'll use the money to hire additional bandmates or to purchase time in a recording studio. He will score the entire film, which puts us one step closer to getting the movie and Factoryville's name out there. The end goal is to enter the film into festivals, local and national, as well as get it on a local PBS station so that everyone can watch it.

Help us spread the word about the film by sending this link to everyone you've ever met. If you're into social media, we also have a facebook page where we regularly update everyone on the film's status and cool things we find out about the town or whose birthday it is.
