Filming of NICK and NICKY begins
Filming of NICK and NICKY begins

"NICK and NICKY" is a modern day screwball comedy and murder mystery inspired by the classic Hollywood comedies of the 1930s and 40s. Ever wonder "Why don't they make movies like that anymore?"  The answer: WE ARE! "NICK and NICKY" takes the witty sparkling spirit of these films and recreates it in a modern day, upscale, Gay setting. 

The movie will be marketed as a mainstream comedy featuring a lovable and witty couple that happens to be GAY. The current goal is to raise enough funds($30,000) to finance the filming of the climactic wedding scene this summer at a magnificent ocean side estate in The Hamptons. This scene is not only funny and romantic but will also help further the promotion of MARRIAGE EQUALITY to a mainstream audience. What makes NICK and NICKY unique is that it is a genre film that challenges traditional gender roles.  Sometimes the best way to sell an idea is through comedy. Hopefully,we will raise enough funds to film the entire movie. The overall budget is $200,000.

Several staged readings of the script were done to wildly enthusiastic response from audiences both Gay and Straight.  The goal is to make NICK and NICKY a big crossover hit.  But we can only do it with your help. The project is a fun one so please be a part of the FUN!

NICK and NICKY'S success has already begun......

We have raised some funds already which allowed us to film the scenes seen in our fabulous trailer. We have assembled a dynamic cast and crew of talented professionals. There will be additional casting for many of the vivid and exciting supporting characters. So please help us bring the entire finished movie to the silver screen.

Risks and challenges

Getting a movie made is never easy but if enough money is raised I have every confidence that "Nick and Nicky" will do very well at the box office. Several scenes have already been filmed and the wedding scene will be filmed this summer and the rest of the movie in the late Fall of 2014. The goal is to release the film in 2015. Many of the locations have been secured.

Once the wedding scene is filmed I feel very confident that it will be easier to raise funds to complete the project by the end of 2014. The timeliness of the Marriage Equality issue on a national basis should provide incentive to get distributors.
