NEW SPECIAL REWARD IF YOU DONATE UP TO $80

****************************************

A late twenty something man tries to shed some pounds at his old high school track and falls in love with a tutored jogger along the way.

NATHAN, 28, is down and out with a dwindling career, a few extra pounds, and a thick Zach Galifianakis type of beard on him. STEPHANIE, 27, is an introverted fitness nut who doesn’t easily warm up to people.

Nathan, after realizing that getting in shape is harder than he thought, attempts to talk to Stephanie at the track. This doesn’t go well, even after multiple attempts. Nathan is persistent and finally gets Stephanie’s attention and she agrees to help him get in shape.

After a series of events, Stephanie learns more about Nathan and the fact that he’s a single father. She warms up to him and helps Nathan lose 65 pounds.

Stephanie’s ex-boyfriend JOE, hears about her dating a new man, Nathan. Joe comes to the track to workout and intrude on Nathan and Stephanie’s blossoming relationship.

A rivalry brews between Nathan and Joe. Nathan wants Joe out of their lives and Joe wants Nathan out of Stephanie’s life so he can win her back.

Which will Stephanie choose?

One of our biggest achievements was shooting the entire series on an iPhone:

What Do We Need The Money For?
The new season is 120 pages, we're essentially making a feature film. The money raised by this campaign will afford us camera equipment, lighting, crew, location permits and other things like food and gas.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

There is always the possibility of scheduling conflicts with film productions. We have recently cast the series and were fortunate to see many great actors at the audition phase. If someone has to drop out of the production we have many viable alternatives.

We may have trouble finding the locations we need within our budget, but we are a dedicated group and wont let this stop us. The worst case scenario is that some locations have to be altered from the script.

Some steps of the process could end up taking longer than expected, and some rewards could end up delayed. We are putting the success of the production first, and delays that could improve the final product will be given precedence over the estimates given here.
