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.

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.

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.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
