The Wednesday Morning Breakfast Club is almost done. We just need $5,000 dollars to record the soundtrack with a REAL orchestra.

About this project

Before you read our story take a look at this rough cut scene from The Wednesday Morning Breakfast Club. This is our first gift to you! But we are warning you. This is with a computerized version of the soundtrack. 

Our project is a 45-minute film called, “The Wednesday Morning Breakfast Club.” The movie is about three elderly gentlemen who come to the same restaurant every Wednesday morning and order the same thing. The story is told through the eyes of the young lady, Megan, who serves them. At first, Megan and the other staff find the three men grumpy, persnickety and a royal chore. But as Megan gets to know them better and hears all of the stories that they tell, she develops a genuine respect and appreciation for them which influences every employee at the restaurant. We shot the movie last summer and have already completed a large portion of the editing. The money that we raise here will be used primarily for one of the most costly parts of our project—the soundtrack. Our goal is to have a small orchestra record the original score, written by Richard Barber (Justin and Amanda Barber's dad), at Broadside Productions in Kalamazoo, MI. We will also be producing a soundtrack album alongside the DVD. Any money left over will go towards other production costs.

Risks and challenges

As with any project there are hurtles that can get in your way, and sometimes even delay the project. We have compiled what we believe to be our potential hurtles. Some of these hurtles could really hurt the project, but we have gotten this far in the production and we will not let them stop us.

Risks and challenges to The Wednesday Morning Breakfast Club
1 A musician could get sick or have a family emergency on the day we record. Plan B: We would reschedule the recording date to one of the other four days the conductor has given us to work with.
2 Kalamazoo College could at the last minute decide they would rather we did not use their auditorium. This would also pose a problem in terms of what instruments we would have available to us. Plan B: We would record at Broadside Productions studio and rent the instruments we need.
3 We may not reach our Kickstart goal. Plan B: We would have to use computerized music. (Not cool.)
4 Acts of God. Plan B: Reschedule and hope God does not act on the remaining three days.

The one MAJOR risk is mentioned above—not making our goal in this Kickstart campaign. Everything that we need to record the soundtrack is already guaranteed. The conductor of the Kalamazoo Philharmonia has already agreed to help recruit musicians, conduct the music, let us have access to a concert hall, and instruments. The sound engineer from Broadside Productions has agreed to give us his time and is excited about the project. Making our thirty day campaign goal will eliminate this most detrimental challenge to our project.
