DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT

Hi I'm Josh Guffey
Hi I'm Josh Guffey

THE STORY

Chris Halvorsen, veteran of a skilled undercover narcotics unit, takes rookie agent Mikey Costa under his wing. When their boss, Jim Grace, taps Mikey to conduct a drug deal in a house alone with new suspects, Chris begrudgingly agrees to train him out of loyalty to the unit.

When Mikey is inside the house wearing a wire and Chris is outside leading the surveillance team, Mikey's wire fails before a suspect exits the house and drives away in Mikey's car. With no way of knowing Mikey's condition in the house, Chris and his team break-in and a shootout ensues, ending in Mikey's death alongside that of the rest of the suspects.

In the aftermath, Chris is immediately put on leave and begins an unauthorized investigation into the failed deal in order to uncover why they were there in the first place. His first clues point him towards a rural town where he meets Jolene, a local bartender tied to a pervasive drug network; Manny, the area's lead enforcer; and Hughes, the leader of the network.

As he digs up more than he bargained for, he has to decide how to proceed when doing the "right thing" could lead to the most violent conclusion.


OUR TEAM

THE CAST

TONY TODD - "HUGHES"

Best known for his chilling turn as Candyman in the iconic horror film franchise, Tony Todd has been starring in classic films (Platoon, Night of the Living Dead, The Rock, Final Destination) since he began his career in 1986.

 JAKE KAUFMAN - "CHRIS"

Jake has starred in several award-winning films such as Miss Ohio (Grand Jury Award, Dances with Film Festival 2009) and The Father, The Son (Best Horror Short, Aphrodite Film Awards 2018).


WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP

Filmmaking is expensive and I don't want to make the dirt cheap version of this film. That would probably suck and nobody wants to see that. 

We're going to raise our budget through a variety of ways:

  • private equity investors
  • contributions from friends / family
  • potential grants and fellowships
  • and KICKSTARTER!

That last one helps us GET TO YOU - THE AUDIENCE!

THE MOST IMPORTANT FACTOR IN ALL OF THIS!

We don't want to make a movie if it won't be able to reach an audience. Your engagement with this project is the #1 reason why we're here. You're a movie fan, you like twists/turns, you want to be moved. So do we, and this movie is how we can deliver that kind of experience to you.

Contribute, follow along, and join our team - now is the time!


WHERE YOUR MONEY GOES

We've got a lots of stuff to pay for, but movies are collaborative so our cast & crew are the most important!

Our $35,000 goal will go towards paying our precious collaborators - they can receive a living wage while exercising their art & craft in the pursuit of making All Gone Wrong! 

These beautiful people include:

  • Actors/Actresses
  • Producers
  • Director of Photography
  • Assistant Camera People
  • Sound Mixer
  • Production Designer
  • Hair & Makeup
  • Armorer
  • Editorial Team
  • Colorist
  • Post Sound Mixer
  • among others...

Help us show these people how much they mean to our film by valuing their work. Thank you!

Risks and challenges

Every low budget independent feature film has risks and challenges, but with enough preparation, we can mitigate any potential issues! Our main risk is a change to our production schedule. Right now, we're planning to shoot in St. Louis in June 2019 to begin principal photography.

Luckily, if any unforeseen problems arise, we're prepared to adjust our schedule and budget accordingly to make the best and most efficient feature film before our big festival deadlines in 2019.
