About this project

MEET THE MAIN CHARACTER

Harper Hudson wakes up the most popular girl at Garden Island High School. Online she is the best, the most popular, and always has the most likes. But when her best friend threatens to topple her reign, Harper is forced to choose between the boy she loves or the popularity she craves. She makes a choice that changes her world forever.

 Popularity comes at a price, the online world or the real world – High School’s getting tougher.

 From Hawaii Five-0 to CSI to Marvels Inhumans, we have an absolutely amazing cast locked in for Too Much Life. We still have roles to fill so a portion of the Kickstarter funds will go to completing the casting process.

 

By backing this Kickstarter Project you are not only getting behind an awesome film, you are also helping create the foundation for a sustainable film industry on Kauai. We want to continue making films on Kauai, providing jobs to locals and educating our youth via our internship program. A famous filmmaker named Mark Duplass once said, "The Cavalry is not coming and never will. But, if you keep making films and growing your community you will eventually become the Cavalry." We hold these words close to us and its exactly what we strive for everyday. Filmmakers, Students, Parents, Actors, Businesses, and Government officials from around the island are already coming together to make this film happen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Distribution of Kickstarter Funds

Right after the Kickstarter Campaign succeeds the team is switching into high gear. The script for Too Much Life is complete so for the duration of this year we are finishing the casting process, growing the crew, purchasing much needed equipment, and finishing the pre-production process for the film. Filming is scheduled to start in March of 2018. After the movie is shot we will spend the rest of the year editing, creating the music, and coloring the film until the projected release in December of 2018.
