During the Fall of 2016, M&P Presentations created the Train of Positivity campaign, where we invented 25 pay it forward/ random acts of kindness ideas to document. Our hope was that others might find interest in our ideas and help support the mission and make short films that document those acts of kindness and help inspire people to be positive and pay it forward...simple as that!
With Kickstarter's financial support of "Limo Surprise", we will hire Producer David Bradburn with his production company and Absolute Dream Limousine, Inc. We will pick random people up at bus stops in the Chicago-land area on Wednesday, June 14th from 9am - 2pm and give them a fun, classy, and free limo ride to their next destination (and have some interviewing stranger fun during the ride as well!). We will capture this footage and release a finalized edited short film on our YouTube channel for all to see and share.
We are ready to turn this "Limo Surprise" into a postivie trend of random acts of kindness through the #MPPositive "Train of Positivity!"
The goal is to release the finished short film online by the end of August at the very latest.
Here are examples of Producer David Bradburn's work. We are very excited to be working with him!
The finances for this project are simple.
$3000 is needed for the production company to film, edit, and complete the short film. (Producer: David Bradburn)
$600 is needed for the 5 hour limo rental on Wednesday, June 14th at a "corporate rate" and gratuity for our driver. (Company:Absolute Dream Limousine, Inc.)
- $400 is needed for the Kickstarter processing and fees when all is said and done (they use approximately 10% of money raised.
- As for the Train of Positivity T-Shirt Rewards, we will personally cover the cost of production and shipping to reduce the price of the crowd-funding.
This brings the total project to: $4000 = ($3000 + $600+ $400)
Any extra funding will go toward the t-shirts and shipping costs
Any extra funding over the t-shirts and shipping will start going towards further "Train of Positivity" short films. Let's keep this train rolling!
Thanks so much for your time and support and please contact us with any questions at all! We are proud to be completely transparent about everything!
Risks and challenges
This project is set on a solid foundation! We have Producer David Bradburn with his professional crew lined up for the video capture, production, and editing so that we can document as much of the day as possible. With a three person camera crew, we will be able to witness/document all of the genuine and organic emotions that the "Limo Surprise" might evoke.
As for the risks, the only potential issue would be if M&P Presentations, the production company, or the Limo Service would have to cancel on the June 14th filming day due to unforeseen circumstances. In that case, M&P Presentations LLC would absorb any delayed/ late fees with the companies in order to film at a later date in July or August of 2017.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
