About this project

If you’re reading this message, it means that in God’s good and all-wise providence, we came up short in reaching our funding goal.

 First, let me say how very grateful I am to everyone who believed in the project enough to back it and shared the link to this Kickstarter page through Facebook, Twitter and other social media, as well as by email and verbally with friends and family. Thank you so very much!

So where do we go from here? Thankfully the movie is already captured on camera and the edit nearly locked, so we’ll go at the remaining few hurdles of post-production one at a time knowing that God will provide in His way and on His timetable.

 If you’d still like to be a part of that process, you can donate on our website and receive the same rewards you would have through Kickstarter. Visit princesscutmovie.com/donate to learn more. Thanks again for your prayers and support! To God be all the glory, great things He has done and will do!

What's This Movie About?

A lifelong Carolina farm girl, Grace Anderson has always dreamed of the day when “Mr. Right” slips a Princess Cut diamond on her finger and swears to love her forever. Tonight may be that night as Stewart has something special planned after 15 months together! But when things don’t go as planned, and romance crashes down around her, it launches her on a quest, aided by her father, to understand what it means to truly love another person. Will Grace finally discover love or ruin her chances for happiness forever?

Who's Making This Movie?

Writer/Producer/Director Paul Munger is an award-winning filmmaker who has been working in all types of media for over 10 years. His first film project, a documentary entitled Animals in the Bible, won multiple awards including Best Children's Film and Best of Festival at the CAFF.  Since then he has worked on multiple feature films including Hero, Alone Yet Not Alone, and The ScreenwritersPrincess Cut has been a passion project for Paul and his wife Sheilah, each drawing from their combined personal experiences to craft a beautifully engaging, humorous and heartwarming love story.

Last year we successfully funded, cast (with the help of our amazing Casting Director Katrina Cook!), shot, and edited the film. It was easily one of the most challenging experiences of my life while at the same time being super rewarding.  I could not have come this far without the help of my remarkably talented cast and professional crew, with particular thanks to my outstanding Line Producer and 1st Assistant Director, David Cook, and Director of Photography, Spencer Weaver, both of whom have long lists of feature film work credits and whose experience and insights were invaluable. Also thanks to our Behind-the-Scenes Director Jillian Bowen  who put together the lovely promo piece that was accepted into the CWVFF and we're excited to already have strong interest expressed to us by several distributors!

The Way Kickstarter Works

Kickstarter is the largest crowdfunding platform for creative projects in the world. Awesome fans and supporters just like you pledge to donate funds in return for cool rewards offered at different giving levels. I've set a goal of $35,000 to be raised within a 30 day timeframe so if we don't raise the entire amount by that deadline, then we receive none of the funds and we wouldn't be able to give you the rewards.The important thing to keep in mind is that Kickstarter is ALL OR NOTHING.

 Here are some of the rewards we have lined up for you!

  • Your name in the credits
  • A Digital Download or DVD/BluRay of the Princess Cut Movie

  • Note that each level includes all of the rewards from the levels below it (unless of course it is a limited or exclusive reward, such as the custom kitchen island pictured below as crew prepare the set for filming!)

    • Composer creates the accompanying musical score

    Our Cast

    Allow me to introduce you to the cast of Princess Cut.  I love this cast to death.  They were such a pleasure to work with and when you watch the film I hope you'll agree with me that their performances are delightful.  So without further ado:

     ASHLEY BRATCHER plays the lead role of Grace Anderson.  A winning combination of spirit and sweetness shine brightly in this rising Southern star. Ashley is an honors graduate from Campbell University and holds a bachelor of arts degree in Graphic Design. She was in the Uplifting Entertainment (UP TV) exclusive The Perfect Summer, directed by Gary Wheeler. When she isn't busy filming, Ashley loves spending time with her family, surfing, and painting.

     JOSEPH GRAY plays the role of Clint Masters.  Early on, Joseph knew he wanted to be a professional actor.  And so he immersed all his time and energy under the training of Burgess Jenkins (Remember the Titans) , instructor at Carolina Actor's Group. There he learned to focus on the subtle nuances that touch the heart of the audience. Joseph quickly began to book an array of characters in Television, Commercials & Film. Most notably, you'll see Joseph in a principal role in the upcoming June 13 release Alone, Yet Not Alone.  He also had roles in Wesley and To Have and To Hold.  Joseph enjoys spending time with his family as well as doing some screenwriting of his own.

     JENN GOTZON plays the role of Brooke McClaren.  This Pennsylvania native is an award-winning actress who had a breakout role in Ron Howard's Oscar nominee Frost/Nixon and then went on to star in a string of movies including Doonby (opposite John Schneider), Alone Yet Not Alone, God's Country, I Am Gabriel,  The Good Book, Forgiven (with Kevin Sorbo) and Heaven Help Us. Gotzon developed "Inspiring Audiences" in which she uses her movies to educate and encourage high school students across the country how to pursue and achieve their dreams.  She is happily married to award-wininng director Chris Armstrong and enjoys life in sunny Los Angeles.

     RUSTY MARTIN, JR. plays the role of Robert Anderson. Rusty is best known for his role as Dylan Mitchell in Courageous, but has also turned in excellent performances in Jackson's Run, Love Covers All, and Polycarp. Rusty was named one of the 10 hottest actors under the age of 30 in faith-based films

     MIMI SAGADIN plays the role of Katherine Anderson. Mimi is a talented actress best known for her performance as Corrie Ten Boom (opposite John Rhys-Davies) in Return to the Hiding Place, in theaters now. She co-founded the Improv troupe, Mission IMPROVable, and has been an active ensemble member of numerous troupes for the past 20 years. 

     RUSTY MARTIN, SR. plays the role of Jim Anderson. His talents have been displayed across a number of films including Courageous, Love Covers All, and A Long Way Off.

     CORY ASSINK plays the role of Jared Cunningham. The talented actor is probably best known for his tenured commercial success, including multiple Super Bowl appearances. Cory first delved into performing professionally with Oklahoma-based Kandid Kids.  He continued to excel in theatre and competitive speech, and graduated from The University of Texas at Austin. He produced, cast and starred in the touching dramedy You Are Super.

    Risks and challenges

    Producing an independent film is inherently risky. But the good news is, we've already overcome a majority of the hurdles! With God's help I raised all the funding for principal photography, discovered and directed our talented cast, hired a hardworking, dedicated crew, and edited the film nearly to completion. The risks that yet lie ahead require putting finishing touches on the film, so there could be scheduling conflicts that delay post-production and secondly, dealing with the pressures of a crowded marketplace is a major (but not impossible) challenge. With the years of experience and connections of myself and my cast/crew, and combined with your kind assistance, I'm confident we can finish strong!
