About this project

Hello moviegoers! My name is Michael Zanetis and I'm the Producer/Writer of The Thrill Is On. Thank you for taking time to view our video and considering making a contribution to our film. As my story goes, I persevered for seven years to get B.B. King his Star on the Walk of Fame and now I need your help to tell my story. As an independent film maker, the challenges are many and often unforeseen. In my case, the sudden loss last October of my longtime business partner to cancer. He was my Executive Producer with the financial wherewithal to make our film. Since then I have mortgaged my home and invested our savings into the continued development of this film. The Thrill Is On has attracted the attention and interest of major Studios and Distributors and your contribution, combined with other investor funds, will help us package and produce our film and strike the best deal.

We have put together an Oscar worthy ensemble of talent including; Award Winning Actors Patrick Fugit and Wendell Pierce; Award Winning Screenwriter Melora Donoghue; Award Winning Casting Director Cathy Sandrich and renowned guitarist Jeff Golub.

I need your help in bringing this inspiring true story to the big screen. Its universal message of love, friendship and reaching for the stars is one that you will be proud to be a part of. Whether you're a blues fan or just a fan of life...this film will touch your heart and bring a smile to your face.

Please accept my personal invitation to join our team as an Associate Producer by making a contribution to our film where your name will appear around the world in the on screen credits!

Thank you for your support of The Thrill Is On...and may all your dreams come true!
