Why we want to make this film..
This story is inspired by the clash between parental love and the pressure of society. On one hand, a parent's love is unconditional. On the other, that love means you want to push your kids to be exactly how you want them to be, sometimes overlooking their real passion.
It's also inspired by me sitting in the back of a taxi cab in Bangkok during rush hour on too many occasions. I always thought music would not only entertain people, but they tend to bring people closer together.
Why you should back us..
Our team of filmmakers, both professional and amateur, (I've worked on two personal films and many Hollywood feature films, others have worked on feature films in Thailand), wanted to fund this project because though we are personally vested in the film, we cannot afford camera equipment and other filming expenses. We are asking for the minimal, in hopes that you will join us in creating a short film that will show many parts of the true Thai culture.
Your money will... On top the money we are going to put in it ourselves and using some of our own equipment...
1. Help pay for a real audio guy. (separating us from amateur projects)
2. Crew meals/ transportation
3. Camera equipment and operator.
4. Lighting and Grip equipment
