Greencastle is a film created by Koran Dunbar featuring a cast and crew from Greencastle, PA, Maryland, New York, and California. We wrapped on filming last summer and then toured the film festivals. We had a sold out premiere at the Maryland Theatre and lots of the community got their first look at our film. Along the way, we have been nominated for and won a few awards which is just icing on the cake.
The biggest question that we get now is, "When can we get Greencastle on DVD?" After hearing this 1000's of times, we feel it is time to get Greencastle DVD in everyone's hands. We decided to go with Kickstarter again so we can have even more involvement from the community that helped us get to this point. We have a chance to make the Greencastle DVD with some extras to capture this project for a lifetime. We get to share more of the project with you and we are excited to have even more people see Greencastle. Now, we can finish this project together.
Our plan is to release the entire Greencastle film on DVD by the holidays of this year! We are planning a second disc of special features such as a commentary with the filmmakers to be released in 2013. The "director's commentary" will help you gain some insights about what was happening behind-the-scenes.
This Kickstarter project will help us make a real DVD by getting the DVD authored and coded. This means the DVD that you will get is an actual DVD. Our final goal is to get Greencastle the film MPAA rated and start shipping in December to be ready for the holidays.
The experiences that we have received from this project so far are nothing short of life changing and inspiring us to keep pushing forward. We love that you are here with us as we get to share our dreams. Thanks.

Risks and challenges
MPAA Rating - There is wait list for MPAA rating. The process is that you submit the film to be screened and reviewed by a committee and a rating is determined, such as PG, PG-13... We have already submitted our film to the MPAA to help increase the chances that Greencastle will be rated prior to the DVD release.
Holiday Shopping - We are making every effort to have Greencastle ready in the middle of December so everyone has it for the Holidays for gifts and stocking stuffers. We are working on the bonus materials and artwork ahead of time to help our chances that the project will be ready as soon as possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
