About this project

THE STORY

Dad is a short film that follows a teenager by the name of Charlie as he struggles to cope with the loss of his father. By searching for one last connection with his father, he discovers something new about himself.

PRODUCTION

With our goal of $3,500 we plan to make this film a reality, but we don't plan on stopping there. Every dollar past our goal counts. $3,500 is not the limit. It's a great start.

With our 2 STRETCH GOALS of $4,000 and $4,500, we hope to upgrade our locations, set design, and film with a RED scarlet or even the RED Epic, used on the set of The Amazing Spiderman and The Hobbit.

OUR TEAM...

Producers: Kyle Wasserman and Asher Genoot

Associate Producer: Ilan Benjamin

Cinematographer: Niko Gutierrez

1st AC: Arjan Sudick

Behind the Scenes: Connor Hall

WHERE YOUR MONEY GOES

We are not making this film as a thesis or for profit, but rather as a personal project to share with the world. Your contributions will go to...

- Lighting and camera equipment, locations, set design, and film festival submissions that will open up new opportunities for us.

GOAL

With "Dad", you can help me tell my most personal story of loss. You can help me connect with people who have experienced a similar struggle. 

THANK YOU

Thank you for your support! For more information, check: martinrevelationfilms.com

Risks and challenges

With a large goal comes large risks and challenges, especially after our project becomes successfully funded. Some problems include: permits falling through, locations becoming unavailable, and the distance that will come during post-production as the producers try to communicate over the summer between LA and Chicago. We have practiced film and understand these possible road blocks and others that we may encounter. We have no intention of letting any of these obstacles affect us in achieving our goal.
