                   WHO ARE WE? ...AND WHY ARE WE HERE?

 There are so many stories and facts behind the most famous movies in the history of Cinema. Donate and be a part of something Legendary... a story that deserves to be told."

"I have never had a better film school than this documentary, I promise you, this will be one of the most interesting and entertaining documentaries that you will ever watch".

-Leonardo Corbucci ( Director )

L E G E N D A R Y  A D

What do "Star Wars", "The Godfather", "Lord of the Rings", "Batman", "Inception", "Saving Private Ryan" and "Pulp Fiction" all have in common? Simple: Amazing First Assistant Directors. They are the experts on set that allow the director to focus on his job while keeping the movie machine moving forward. These AD's have collected numerous stories from the legendary films we have always dreamt about. These inspirational film veterans have the best advice that a film-maker would never be able to learn in film school. A legendary documentary from the mouths of the ones that ran the sets on legendary movies.

There are so many more Legendary AD's we plan to interview, the crew has done an amazing job already and deserves to finish this project. The stories of these amazing people are waiting to be told. Together we can make it happen.

Risks and challenges

During production, the Italian Company that was producing my documentary went bankrupt! They handed me all of the rights, apologized and walked away. I decided to continue the interviews on my own, with my small production company.

We have already interviewed 10 Legendary ADs, but we need the funding to complete the remaining 10 interviews. We need your help to arrange each new interview, rent the equipment and more!

These Legendary ADs are really busy! They are filming some of the biggest Hollywood movies to hit the box offices. We need flawless organization. This brings with it a unique set of circumstances and scheduling problems that we will work tirelessly to overcome. Our connections and contacts allow us to work closely with decision-makers in the industry to effectively find solutions to these issues. Having said that, unforeseen situations can and do arise through personal and professional obligations.

The second half of this production will be more costly than the first, due to; audio post-production, video editing, sound editing, and music score. All of this is still needed to make the production shine and reach its full potential. We strive to finish it all before the end of 2014.

Again, without your support, we would not be able to finish this documentary. Let's not allow these amazing insider stories and treasured facts to be lost forever!
