TWICE TWO MAKES FOUR

Noah and Claire Hawthorne have different approaches to facing the reality of their cancer-stricken daughter Kayla. While Claire tries everything in her power to save Kayla, Noah accepts her fate and instead obsesses over a do-it-yourself funeral. Their differences cause a strain in their relationship. Will they be able to overcome the death of their daughter and reconnect as a couple, or will their relationship be consigned to the same fate as their daughter's?

THE MISSION - 

Like most student filmmakers, we rely heavily on the generosity of family and friends in order to make this film a reality. The total projected costs of making Twice Two Makes Four are $35,000.

As of now, $15,000 has been secured, but we still need another $20,000 to prepare for shooting in March. This is where your financial support can help bring us closer to our goal. Besides the rewards, you will be supporting a group of passionate young filmmakers whose desire is to push the boundaries and create a unique and meaningful film. A journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step. We will be eternally grateful for your help in providing us with the opportunity to make this step.

WHERE YOUR MONEY IS GOING - 

As you may already know, making a film is awfully expensive! The projected costs of the additional $20,000 fall into a number of itemized categories, the largest of which include:

1) Camera rental (RED EPIC), 2) professional grip and lighting equipment, 3) actors’ fees, 4) production design, and 5) transportation to and from Pennsylvania and Arizona. 

THE TEAM - 

We are a group of dedicated student filmmakers hailing from Emerson College in Boston, MA. For a complete biography of our main crew, please download our Production Packet.

THE CAST

Actors to be announced - currently being casted by Jen Rudin, CSA 

Jen Rudin is an award-winning Casting Director whose credits include Chicken Little, The Princess and the Frog, Brother Bear, and The Incredibles. Jen also casted for the award-winning Broadway musical 13 and the upcoming Turkeys, starring Owen Wilson, Woody Harrelson, and Steve Martin.

THE LOCATION(s)

WRAPPING UP - 

We are ardent believers of the phrase “go big or go home.” Thus, we plan to submit Twice Two Makes Four to film festivals worldwide upon its completion.
