About

Logline: Ash Jones, a trained assassin has always been prepared for everything, but when he meets the uncontrollably sexy, Renee, he never expected to be faced with the question of morality about his job.

Synopsis: still writing it.

Why Donate?

- - - Need help in this area. I dont want to sound conceded.

Knowledge and Dylan worked together on the short. Naturally as friends we decided to work together on the feature. This film has been getting pushed back for over a year and we all are getting ready to actually begin production  The only thing holding us back is the proper amount of money to get it going and everyone signed on to the project, like Kwame Patterson (THE WIRE).

We approached Kwame and he loves the script. He really wants to be in this film, but we have to be SAG/AFTRA in order to have him. A SAG/AFTRA film costs money.  As the producer, I only want to make this project if he is on board! 

Our biggest problem is that investors back out, the movie keeps getting put on hold, then we decided to try this site and hopefully fans will step up and say; “No, we will fund this movie.” That is a story we want see be told. Will you join us?



Movies are always fun, but are hard work and cost a lot of money.  

The money will go towards: Food, equipment, set dressing, props, make-up, costumes, SAG fees, insurance, travel fees, location rentals, expendables, and festival fees.

Your money will NOT be going towards our pockets! Every dollar donated (besides the % that goes to Kickstarter) will be going directly to the production of the film as stated above.

Once upon a time, Knowledge made the short film version of this feature. This film got him accepted into the Directing discipline at UNCSA. As Dylan got accepted into his discipline of choice, Cinematography. 

An interesting fact is that the short film was shot on a DVX100, and does not look like it at all because Dylan is so talented.

All of us are recent grads (or current students) of the University of North Carolina School of the Arts (UNCSA) in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

Can I Gift An Incentive? YES! Certainly! If you would like to donate to the film, but give the reward to someone as a gift, go through all the normal process of making a donation in your name. For billing purposes, this action must be in your name. After our deadline, we will send a message to you on Kickstarter. (It will be forwarded to the email address you provided)  Please reply with all the person’s information that is to receive the reward. We will make sure they are the person who receives the reward.

What if I don't want the Facebook shout out & want to remain anonymous? Completely fine with us! We still thank you so much!

What happens if the money isn’t raised in time? Unfortunately nothing. If our goal isn’t met before the deadline, no money changes hands and no movie is made. We want to avoid that at all costs!

Can we exceed the goal? YES! What an amazing problem to have. Kickstarter will allow as much money as is given before the deadline. 

Any more questions? You can contact us directly at ashjonesproject@gmail.com. We will get back to you. We promise!
