About this project

Synopsis:
On a snowy Christmas Eve, an elderly man steps inside a quaint neighborhood candy shop. He's surrounded by the nostalgia of warm smells, twinkling lights and memories from his childhood. As he slips back into the comfort of his memories from a Christmas over fifty years ago, he's greeted with an unexpected surprise. In this moment he finds that what he's always cherished was never really lost.

Where will your money go?Some funds will go toward creating the sets, leasing and purchasing props. Silver Bells will be filmed in five locations comprising of 19 scenes. The location that will be the focal point in the story is a Candy Store located in the town of Snoqualmie, WA. Filming will also take place in two different homes as well as two exterior locations. We need to rent these locations and transform them into the world of Silver Bells. Beyond the people running sound, working cameras and the people creating the sounds while in front of the cameras, we’re tasked with creating an entire world of wonder.
Actors/Crew- We are striving for the highest production value possible. This means our production has attracted many established actors and film crew professionals from the Seattle area. They're wonderful people who do this for a living. Karolyn Grimes who played ‘Zuzu’ in “It’s A Wonderful Life” will be playing the role of Marjorie in Silver Bells.

Passionate people make all the difference with a project like this and every single person's contribution will make this film possible. Silver Bells short film is a collaborative effort by people who truly care about this project. Your help and support will be invaluable to us on this filmmaking journey.

CAN WE EXCEED THE GOAL?Absolutely!!! If we can surpass our $15,000 goal, it would not only mean that we can produce our film as planned, but it would allow us to compensate our film crew and actors at a more respectable level. Exceeding our goal would also help offset any potential overrun associated with post-production expenses, which include music, sound mixing, color correction, editing, etc.

All of our rewards are dependent upon us reaching our goal and most will not be available until we have finished the film. Once our goal is met we will stay in contact with you throughout the production of Silver Bells, providing you with updates on our progress as well as your rewards!

I would like to think that this short film will provide the audience with a re-captured glimpse into a story with heart that is wrapped in the wonder of the Christmas season.

Be sure let your friends, family and filmmaking peers know about our wonderful project!
Thanks for your support!
