Derek Shane Garcia is a Director/Writer/Editor from Brooklyn, NY attending the SUNY Purchase Film School this is his Senior Film "Father Like Son" 

"Father Like Son" is about a troubled sociopathic young man, X, who gets on a bus in Nevada and arrives in New York City for the first time in search for his "father" who sent him a postcard from Coney Island. X not knowing the city navigates his way through it in search for Coney Island, but X is flawed by his troubled past with his father and also running from the police. He becomes paranoid, scared, lost and plain confused as he creates chaos for everybody he meets or merely passes on the street. He is truly a wandering soul. 

We need this funding for flashback sequences that our team would like to shoot on super 16, as well as a couple more scenes on digital formats, along with post-production color correction and highly needed sound mixing. That will give this film a professional edge. 

Anything will help. Thank you so much!

Risks and challenges

There will be risks and challenges and I'm ready to face them. I've had a lot of experience in these situations, including with past kickstarters and have successfully given my funders all there rewards and more. Since I am making a film the editing process will be long but I know that I have a deadline and that I have a responsibility and people who put there trust in me and I won't let them down. I will overcome the stress and workload by working non-stop and coming up with the product, if anything gets delayed to contact my funders and let them know my situation, to be respectful and mindful. Thank you for this opportunity,
