THANK YOU.

We hit our goal! Now it's time for the next level! Film fests and additional rewards. For every $1K, we'll submit to at least 10 film festivals across the country (and world). And we'll keep you informed every step of the way. As for benchmarks:

If we hit $5K, you'll get an exclusive comic screensaver. If we hit $7.5K, you'll get another digital comic story from Zimmerman / Lawrence. If we hit $10K, everyone who backed at $20 or above will get a physical comic along with their other rewards. And digital backers will get another cool screensaver! Now, back to your regularly scheduled campaign...

MONSTER.  

My neighbor and pal, Kian, shot a monster movie with me in our garages and basements. It's called MADE YOU LOOK. And we'd like you to help us finish it.

One of these things is not like the other.

THE ROYAL WE. 

Here's our first set. That's me, writer and director, on screen left. Kian Doughty, star, with the flashlight. Tory Maurer, Director of Photography, with the coolest head tilt in town. And Chris Walas, who needs no introduction but I'll give him one anyway (Academy Award winner of THE FLY, GREMLINS creator), on monster duty.

Don't go in there!
Don't go in there!

IN THE CAN.

We shot on two separate occasions in two locations using two different 4K cameras over three days. Tory flew in twice to make this happen. Production's wrapped and the initial edit is finished. MADE YOU LOOK... is looking good! 

Look into my eyes.

ALL THE MONIES.

After taxes and fees, 100% of the Kickstarter funds will go to two things and two things alone: post-production and creating rewards. NONE of the Kickstarter money goes to reimburse production costs or personnel. Executive Producer Douglas H. Snyder and partner Bricker-Down Productions (that's me!) are committed to finishing the film with incredible color correction, dialogue editing, sound design and composer partners without taking a dime. Furthermore, pal Kian will be there every step of the way, as we want this to be an incredible learning experience across all film stages for him.

We do have stellar stretch goal rewards in both the physical and digital realms, but any money above and beyond our goal will go to film festival submissions. We'd like the film to go across the globe, and we'll do our best to be there to support it. Especially with Kian and his family!

Seeing triple.

FUTURA.  

Chris told me he was investing in the future when he worked on MADE YOU LOOK. I couldn't have said it better. Let's make a cool little film together - we figure it'll be around 5 minutes - and we'll try our best to get it in a film festival near you.

These post-production luminaries are taking reduced fees or simply volunteering their services. Here's who they are, what they'll be doing and why it's important:

Jordan Eusebio will be doing the dialogue edit, sound design and final mix. https://vimeo.com/jordaneusebio 

This is the opposite of what Jordan will be doing on MYL, so I promise he'll look significantly happier in future updates. At least, I hope so!

Kevin Shima is composing the final score. Part of the post budget is hiring lead instrumentalists to make the music as profound as possible. www.kevinshima.com

Jeez, no one's looking super happy in these pics, are they?

Zack Linkow will be doing a vfx pass on the basement portion of the film. For those keeping track at home, the monster sfx is 100% in-camera. We're old school. www.vimeo.com/zacklinkow

There we go. Thanks for the smile, Zack. This is actually on one of our previous projects together.

And then we get to Producer, Curator and Logo levels, which come with an original Chris Walas creation. If you back at these levels, get in touch with us immediately so we can reserve your creature! There are seven, and they are first come, first served. So if there's an "X" through 'em, they're already claimed.

SHIPPING.

Everything will be double packed and sent through either USPS Priority or UPS. This ensures your rewards get to you in a secure, tracked and insured fashion, which will make us sleep better at night. 

With the Doughty family. Are we working hard... or are we hardly working?

THANK YOU.

Seriously, that was a lot to take in. We hope you back the campaign, but regardless... thanks for listening!

Risks and challenges

Folks, I've delivered multimedia projects on time and on budget for over 15 years. I communicate throughout the process and take my responsibility to my backers 100% seriously. I see no issues with delivering MADE YOU LOOK in a timely and professional manner, especially as production is 100% wrapped and we're well on our way in post. Heck, more than half the rewards are already in hand. Back with confidence!
