Welcome!

Please check out our video message above. This page compliments our website (www.buttonsintheground.com).

This is a story we're passionate about sharing. Our friends, family and even some strangers have found us and supported us here.

Your generous involvement grants us the tools to take this project from pre-production to completion. We have worked diligently to pare down costs (our crew is even working for free) and the majority of our donations are going towards a decent cast, competitive camera and electric equipment and post-production facilities to make this project a contender for film festivals nationwide in 2011.

Please check out the rewards on the side of our page - we had fun thinking of them and we're happy they help get you involved.

We are an honest, responsible and professional group of filmmakers. We are here to answer any questions or concerns you would have about donating money to our group. If you do have questions- please contact us at: info@buttonsintheground.com or call Trenton at: 310/696-8609.

THANK you for checking out our page...

The BUTTONS team.
