"You always used to say you could tell how good a friend is by whether or not they'd help you move a dead body. "

"Yeah.  Sounds like me."

"So... would you?"

Kip Desmond has gotten everything he's ever wanted: a thriving career, beautiful wife, and an affluent lifestyle, all of which is put in jeopardy when Abby, the woman with whom he's having a casual fling, is accidentally killed. Desperate, he ends up on the doorstep of childhood friend Marvin Croat and asks him for a huge favor: help get rid of the body. This gruesome situation begins a series of events which unravel Kip and Marvin’s lifelong friendship, leading both men to murderous acts neither had ever suspected themselves capable of.

FAVOR is the gripping new thriller from writer/director Paul Osborne, who brought you the cult hit TEN 'TIL NOON and acclaimed documentary OFFICIAL REJECTION.  It will star Blayne Weaver and Patrick Day in the two lead roles, and production is set to commence this June in Los Angeles.

What we're doing here is trying to raise money toward that production.  Fortunately, the digital revolution has made it possible to make a quality movie on a very tight budget.  But actors still need to get paid.  The crew still needs to eat.  Make-up, costumes, props, insurance, permits... it adds up fast.  Your donations will go toward all of that and more.  If you back us here, you can rightly swell with pride during our shoot knowing the Best Boy got his PB&J sandwich that day because of you!

For those of you unfamiliar with Kickstarter, here's how it works: you simply click on the green donation button (contributing anything from a dollar on up to... well, there is no limit, really) and it uses your Amazon account to charge your credit card, just like buying a DVD!  And you can get some cool rewards in the process.  But if we don't reach our $20,000 goal by the time we hit our deadline, you get charged nothing.

Every donation, no matter how small, allows us make a better movie, and every backer will get project updates thru Kickstarter, keeping you saavy with insider scoop on the film you're helping to create.  You can also increase your donation after it's been pledged (provided the deadline has not yet been reached).

In addition to contributing money here via Kickstarter, there are a few other ways to get involved.  If you're interested, you can make an actual investment or do product integration in the movie.  For more information on those options, or just for an additional glimpse of the project including bios, synopsis and other nifty stuff, please download our FAVOR PROJECT PDF.
