About this project
UPDATE: We Made It! Thanks to you, five films will definitely get their funding, but we still have some time before the campaign is ending. So guess what? We've been contacted by a donor who has agreed to match dollar-for-dollar every penny we raise over the $10k goal to make MORE films (up to a maximum match of $5k), and every $2500 funds a new as-of-yet unnamed project. This basically means that every $1250 we raise from now until the end of the campaign will fund a new movie – and that movie could be YOURS! Seriously. Click here for more info.
We Make Movies, the Los Angeles film collective, is shooting its second slate of short, independent content. Slate Two consists of five very different short films, films that represent the best of our writer's workshop and were all developed directly through our community. These films span all different types of genres and come from unique and original voices - voices you haven't heard from before. And we need YOUR HELP to raise $2,500 for each film.
Here are the films:
Project #1: THE GROUNDHOG & THE GUN. Freeland Shreve - Writer/Director • Jon Montepare - Producer • Mattias Troelstrup - Director of Photography • Matt Knudsen, Austin Rodriguez - Cast
While a father tries to shoot the groundhog that's been terrorizing his wife's vegetable garden, he and his young son make a game out of it... it's kind of like Tag.
Project #2: LAYOVER. David Aslan - Director/Writer • Kendall Hawley & Chad Kukahiko - Producers • Ruthie Aslan - Producer/Editor
LAYOVER is the story of two strangers, a broken-down man and a young bride-to-be, stuck at an airport hotel bar, where they find an unexpectedly uplifting connection in each other.
Project #3: LONACONING. Keith Stevenson - Writer • Keegan Uhl - Director • Keith Stevenson, Keegan Uhl, Kendall Hawley - Producers • Keith Stevenson, Romina Bovilini, TBD - Cast

We’re making movies we want to see—the kind of movies Hollywood won’t step out and make. Somebody’s gotta do it!
So help us get this next batch of wonderful short films made from yet more filmmakers in our community. We know you’re not after schwag—not you—but there are thank-you gifts detailed (at right) for different-sized donations. We hope, hope, hope to hear from you.
Let’s make some movies!
