BIG NEWS! Thanks to fans like you, we reached our minimum goal. That said, if you believe in this project but have yet to contribute, The Mortified Concert Film still needs your support to cover the full spectrum of production costs not met by our minimum goal. The more we can raise, the more professional/enjoyable the finished movie will be. Every amount helps-- even $10.
Once upon a time, Mortified (http://getmortified.com) began as a tiny LA stage show where adults told stories about their lives by sharing their most embarrassing childhood writings & artwork (diaries, letters, lyrics, poetry, home movies, plays)... in front of total strangers.
Since then, Mortified has grown into a grassroots network of events with chapters in ten cities worldwide, two books, & an acclaimed web series. And all of that is thanks to the support of fans like you.
THE CONCERT FILM:
To celebrate our 8th anniversary, we've decided to undertake the most ambitious Mortified project ever-- our debut CONCERT FILM. For the first time ever, we're rounding up several of Mortified's "all-stars of angst" from across the nation... & uniting them onstage for a show unlike any other in Mortified history.
Best of all? We're capturing the whole night on camera & sharing it with the world.
We're packing the event with lots of treats-- epic tales, celebrity cameos, and live music from The Mortified After School Orchestra, an eclectic houseband comprised of tubas, violas, trombones & other instruments your mother forced you to learn in 7th grade. Plus, featuring goth rock legend Lol Tolhurst (founding member of The Cure) on drums.
Through this film, you will able to enjoy Mortified no matter where you live... right in the comfort of home (and without the hassle of having to hire a babysitter for the night).
WHERE YOU COME IN:
But to pull it off, we need YOUR SUPPORT. Making a movie, even a small one, requires lots of resources. While this project is a labor love to many involved, there are many upfront costs that are unavoidable. Your support helps Mortified cover several needed production costs-- venue rental, insurance, travel, music licensing, legal fees, equipment & more. Furthermore, all donations go directly into paying for costs of the production (the director and producers are not taking any money from these contributions).
So if you have ever wanted to get involved with Mortified or helping a movie get produced, this is your chance. Your support can make all the difference.
HOW KICKSTARTER WORKS:
Your credit card is only charged, if and when, we reach our goal. If we do not reach our fundraising goal by the project's stated deadline, we lose ALL the money that has been raised.
All "backer rewards" are only redeemable when the project reaches its fundraising goal. After that time, backers will be contacted by the project's producers to obtain any additional information that may be needed (ie. shipping address, etc.).
