In the near future, a street gang named The Lovers steal The Dream Gun from a gangster named Johnny Tondu. Oh yes.

KING LEAVES THE KINGDOM

* Reward update Feb. 8th:  Added more of the very popular "Be an Extra in the Pool Party Scene" reward!!  You will have fun and drink a lot.

What's it about?

It's the near future.  Theodore, Chachi, Freddy Bread and Killer Boy are The Lovers, a street gang.  They're all about looking cool, cruising the superhighways in their armored car, chasing girls, the usual...

But Theodore, the leader of The Lovers, has lingering and unspoken doubts about his future in the gang.  Everything simmers under the surface until one day they go a party at the mansion of a gangster named Johnny Tondu, with the notion of stealing something from him called The Dream Gun.

But, here's the thing:  They know less about The Dream Gun than they're willing to admit, and it turns out to be an unraveling force on the little world they’ve built for themselves.  Matters aren't helped when somewhere along the way their rivals, The Dead Boys, show up.

The movie will be a little silly, a little serious, fun and beautiful.  At it's core, the movie is about friendship, love, and the ability to control your destiny when you're part of a group (like a street gang) which depends on you.

The Director:

Hey, Nic Zwart here!  I used to be in the bands Desolation Wilderness and Electric Sunset, and I'm currently in Drone Ranger.  After a bunch of albums with those groups and some incredible USA and European tours, I decided to make a film.  This is that film.

Coincidentally, I'll be doing the score for it, along with a few collaborators. It's gonna be awesome!  (along with the rest of the film, naturally).  

Listen to some early rough-mix samples of the score here:
