Your kind donations can help to get this project off the ground. YOU can help raise awareness and maybe.... just maybe there can be another great "gay" film that's not about sex, or drugs, or STDs.

Thank you all forhelping us reach our target. The money we have raised is just the bare bones of what we need to pay crew, cast, location costs, fees, etc... We're not aiming to go too lavish with this. We all believe in this film so much that we just want it to get made. Obviously we'll be ecstatic if we exceed our goal and we can take 'Pepper' to a whole new level. Kickstarter and amazon credit take 7-10% of all monies so we haven't yet met our budget target. So please consider pledging and helping us share the message.

Risks and challenges

Due to the nature of the film we're relying heavily on the gay community and supporters of the gay community to back it. That already cuts our support pool down drastically, but we trust and believe that a community so strong can come together and help release something that breaks all stereotypes. Aside from that it's pretty f'ing entertaining ;)
