UPDATE - Everyone who makes a pledge of $27 or more will have their name in the end credits of the movie! Please encourage others to become a part of this production.

Filming for Out of Nothing started over two years ago.  From pre-production to post-production, we have poured thousands of hours of blood, sweat and tears into bringing this movie to life.

We are filmmakers… we’re here to tell a story. Out of Nothing is not just a tale of breaking records, it's the true story of four ordinary men, in the pursuit of extraordinary dreams.


RYAN STILES, Producer

As both an actor & comedian, Stiles is best known for his roles in The Drew Carey Show and Two and a Half Men, as well as taking on the lead improviser in the hit series Whose Line Is It Anyway?, on which he was also Executive Producer. On top of his television roles, Stiles has also provided the voice of numerous characters for feature animated films, appeared in the Hot Shots! film series, and tours with his Whose Line cast for live shows as Whose Live Anyway?. (IMDb Profile)

ANDREW LAHMANN, Producer

Lahmann worked on & shadowed under the lead cast & producers of Marvel's Iron Man, then co-founded P-51 Pictures with Associate Producer Colin Dalvit, a film production company with multiple features in development. In addition to Out of Nothing, Lahmann was also the Associate Producer & Editor of Bellingham T'Nite, a new TV pilot starring Ryan Stiles. He has produced and directed multiple short film series, including Project Showcase, a community program he co-created for students in his hometown of Toledo, WA. (IMDb Profile)

CHAD DeROSA, Director

DeRosa began shooting short films and other projects over 13 years ago. He stepped away for a period of time to develop his skills as a professional photographer before transitioning back into film and shooting/directing multiple motocross and additional motorcycle short films for Racer X Illustrated. He began filming for Out of Nothing over two years ago, and captured over 100 hours of incredible footage for the editing process. (IMDb Profile)

ANNA SWEENEY, Editor

Sweeney came straight to Bellingham, WA, from working as Post-Production Coordinator on the hit series Anger Management to join the Out of Nothing production team as Editor. Her past post-production work spans multiple TV series, including ABC Family's Make It or Break It, Jane by Design, and the latest 90210(IMDb Profile)

Why do we need money?

We need to take the production team back down to the Motorcycle Land Speed Trials for one last round of filming. We'll be capturing specific shots which will convey the scope & grandeur of both the location & event. Additionally, we will be taking great care in the final polish on the film in the areas listed below so as to provide the ultimate theatrical experience for audiences.

THE FILMING TRIP

  • Travel expenses for 12-crew Production Team (Ground transportation & lodging)
  • Equipment Rentals
  • Helicopter Rental (2 days)
  • Remote Control Helicopter Team Rental (3-5 days)

POST-PRODUCTION

  • Visual Effects
  • Original Musical Score
  • Color Correction
  • Sound Design

Our goal here is to provide viewers a new type of theatrical & inspiring escape with a style of documentary they've never experienced before.

Risks and challenges

Finishing a film always comes with its challenges. Editing can take longer than expected. Weather can set back filming on location. However, we have an experienced team who has handled complex productions before and we know how to keep things within budget, and on time.

Running a Kickstarter campaign, and the fulfillment associated with pledge levels is harder than most expect. Members on our team have successfully run other Kickstarter projects, and we have priced out, and are aware of the costs associated with our pledge levels so we don't get stuck spending all of our funding on T-shirts, and will still have enough to complete the film.

We created our Kickstarter Campaign film without spending a single dollar, but rather by relying on the skill set & talents of our own amazing production team members. Even the musical track was composed specifically for the movie's original score by the composers.

From the entire production team,

Thank you.
