About

We're so excited to share this project with anyone who has, had, or thinks they might ever have an interest in love. We hope you'll enjoy this video that we've lovingly crafted. See below for some FAQs.

Love, 

Matt, Johnross, and Jake

--

Who is Matt?

Matt is a man who is looking for the answers to the universe's questions. He wants to go on this journey of discovery with that special someone.  

For all other Matt related questions please refer to the handy and informative infographic below: 

How is He Single?

Matt's aforementioned shellfish and tree nut allergy has been a heavy burden on his dating life. For example, if Matt was lucky enough to be dating you... and at dinner you ordered the coconut shrimp, at the end of the date you would not be able to express your feelings for each other through a passionate first kiss without the risk of Matt showing symptoms of a severe allergic reaction such as lip swelling, body hives, and difficulty breathing (all of which are commonly mistaken for signs of romantic feelings).

Does Love Really Exist?

Yes. 

Is This A Goof?

No, you silly goose... It's love.

What Happens on A Million Dollar Date?

A million dollar date is a lot like a regular date, just more expensive. There will be small talk, getting to know each other, 60ft yacht rides, finding common interests, hand holding, a 2005 bottle of Chateau Margaux, laughs, realizing you've been talking for hours, and global travel via private jet. 

Where's The Money Going?

Although willing to go dutch, Matt prefers to pick up the check. The majority of the money raised will go towards luxury travel, fine dining, and since Matt believes that mystery is the key to a memorable first date there will be plenty of surprises for you and his date. 

In addition to the actual date, a small amount of money will be put towards equipment rental so we can capture the date and ultimately bring you a documentary that will have cupid saying "DAMNNNNNN." 

How Are You Going To Pull This Off?

Matt never leaves his house before a first date without his keys, wallet, cell phone, or self-confidence. Everyone involved in this project is going to apply this same philosophy to capturing the blossoming of true love. Matt also said "Who needs professional, experienced filmmakers around when you're filmmaking from the heart" and while his enthusiasm is appreciated, there will be experienced producers and film makers involved in capturing and planning the date. 

What Do I Get For Donating?

Isn't the gratification of knowing you've helped a young lad fulfill his dreams of finding love? No? I mean, that's cool. Anyways, we came up with a list of rewards we think you'll love, and while they're all located on the side bar to the right, here's three of our favorites: 

Matt's Mixtape -$25 Tier

If there's one thing Matt knows, it's mixtapes. For $25 Matt will make you a personalized mixtape that's sure to put you in the mood.

Where Can I Make Reservations To Enjoy Chef Mark Collins' Contemporary Take on Low Country Cuisine?

This question references a joke that is no longer in the video. We don't know Chef Mark Collins...He seems like a nice guy though so we kept it. Anyways try OpenTable.

Anything else?

We'd like to extent a very Special Thanks to the following friends and family who have helped bring this project to life: 

Myra Nussbaum, Tyler Roth, Lauren Roth, Hassan Ali, Dan Killian, Shaggy, John Minardi, Cayne Collier, Rob Ragans, Mark Stolt, and Eric Breese.

Risks and challenges

The risks associated with this project are as plentiful as the rewards. First off, Matt is allergic to both shellfish and tree nuts so we'll have to make sure we have an Epipen on hand at all times.

Beyond that the risks expected with this project are the same that could be expected from any documentary film production. Camera malfunctions, location issues, and diva personalities (looking at you Matt) could all be potential challenges. Given the intricate nature of the date planning and preparation is extremely important in assuring we eliminate as many potential pitfalls as possible.

That being said, we've assembled a phenomenal, experienced team of film makers, producers and creatives and are incredibly confident we can deliver a film as romantic as that one where the dogs share the same piece of pasta.
