Piano Man Pictures' latest project is a forty-five minute film. A man that comes back to Memphis in hopes of making films with a local production company, only to face pretentiousness, shyness, paranoia, racism, and apathy.

Pardon the vague description of the film, but at this stage, we're trying to be very protective of the material.

Some festivals would classify this as a feature film. As such, it will be our first project this large.

90% of our budget is made up of feeding our people, transportation, location fees, lens rentals, and art department costs. The other ten percent is for a contingency fund in case anything goes wrong. For all of that to be right at $2,000, all of the people working on this will not get paid, devoting hours of their time everyday to the project from now until early next year, because they believe in it. Any additional dollars we raise will go into festival fees, so don't be scared to donate once we've reached our goal!

Thanks guys!
