"JITTERS" SYNOPSIS:  Minutes before his nuptials, a neurotic young man locks himself away in the back room of a church, with the best man he knows. Recalling the women of his past, he questions his choice.

Actors (Walker Hare & Otoja Abit) during the church backroom scene.

JITTERS is an original short story focusing on the universal experience, angst. Those flutters in your stomach, raised hairs on your arm, or even that inner voice you're unable to deny is something we choose to explore in the film. Best friends know everything about each other— the good & the bad. And if one can't pinpoint those jitters in themselves, a best-friend can.

With inspiration, volunteers, and calling in many favors we have already begun production and have shot half of the project. A preview of the mood, style and look we're going for are displayed above. Your additional donations will allow our cast and crew to continue working to the best of their artistic ability, complete our film, and give us the opportunity to proudly submit JITTERS to film festivals worldwide.

And now for some...

It will require $15,000 to complete production on Jitters, including post-production costs of: editing, sound mixing, color correction, music supervision and licensing as well as other finishing costs. This budget will provide us the ability to deliver a solid short film.

Should we surpass our intended goal of $9,500 we will have the opportunity to submit JITTERS to top tier festivals and work with better Public Relations & Marketing teams. Helping us introduce JITTERS to as many viewers as possible.

Risks and challenges

Biggest risk/challenge is not raising our goal. We've fortunately raised funds independently and had the advantage to already start production with an extremely professionally talented cast & crew. A lot of people have volunteered their time and support to see this story come to life.

Once JITTERS is completed (with the help of this campaign) we will have a beautiful, touching, entertaining and an attractively insightful film in the can (w/ a twist ending).

We are confident that we can overcome the main risk and challenges ahead and your incredible support will be honored, and certainly not forgotten.
