An ex-fighter pilot with 2 dead end jobs receives the opportunity to become part of a new rally race and a chance at a new life.

Year 2043. Ethan Knight, who has a strained relationship with his daughter, lives in a future where he is only able to make ends meet. He is pushed into conflict when his old friend contacts him to be apart of a new maglev rally race. Taking a huge risk,  he must now find the balance between his new found purpose and work through his estranged relationship with his daughter.

This is a down to earth story about a father who is struggling with his everyday life and  haunted by his past. He decides to turn things around for himself and attempts to reach out to find a common ground with his daughter. On MOMENTUM we have strong characters with real issues all within the backdrop of a future world and racing. We really want to emphasize great storytelling without sacrificing beautiful visuals.

Why Kickstarter?

We have been fortunate enough to have the team volunteer their time to this project, however, at the end of the day- there are the hard costs of production. We are seeking contribution to be able to pay for the many things that are but not limited to lights, locations, more props, insurance, permits, cameras, wardrobe and much more. Kickstarter is an amazing place to get more people on as collaborators and supporters. We love the the positive energy of Kickstarter and hope that you can help us bring MOMENTUM to you.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The great thing is that we have the crew that has been working hard on MOMENTUM but all we need now is the backing to fund all the hard work to come to life. The risk and the challenge is being able to get enough contribution to truly get this project made. We believe in MOMENTUM and hope you do too!
