UPDATE: October 20, 2012

WE'VE REACHED OUR NEW GOAL! THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH, WE LOVE YOU! Now any extra money we get will just help us to improve our film more and more! No pressure, just help us out if you love us! <3

Any additional money will go towards film festival submissions & other miscellaneous costs. Thank you SO much for supporting Let Go!

THE STORY
Derek was just dumped by the girl of his dreams, Kristy. Convinced they belong together, he forms a plan to win her back: kidnapping her. With the help of his sidekick, Otis, he orchestrates a fake kidnapping which allows him to be alone with and have a chance to win back his ex.

Let Go is a unique story of unrequited love with a dark twist. We hope to make the film as witty and edgy as the script calls for, but it won't reach its full potential without your help! 

THE CREW
Written/Directed by Bryan Rainstein
Produced by Jamie Rogers
Director of Photography: Paige O'Brien
Edited by Erin St. Pierre
In addition to this, we have a 17-piece crew composed of all students. This will not only be a great learning experience for us, but for them as well.

OUR BUDGET
Your generous contributions will allow us to create our full creative vision, as well as have a fun & comfortable shooting experience. The money we earn will go towards the following:

  • Transportation
  • Food
  • Post-Production Costs
  • Production Design
  • Equipment Insurance
  • Film Festival Submissions

With your help we can make our full creative vision for "Let Go" a reality. Please donate today!

Risks and challenges

We are all film students attending Emerson College, and though we have been well trained through classes and workshops, our biggest obstacle will definitely be funds. We've hired a 17-piece crew, composed of all students, all working for free, looking for an outlet to hone their passions. We are detail-oriented, organized filmmakers confident that we will be able to deliver the best film possible as long as the funds come through!
