Why should you support this project?
Director Yangzom Brauen is a well known actress and writer in Europe, WHO KILLED JOHNNY is her directorial debut (www.yangzombrauen.com). Together with Producer Shari Yantra Marcacci (www.shariyantra.com) and Co- Producer Gerold Wunstel she gathered a professional team together from the crew to the cast. The cast has 3 of Switzerland's most known actors who participated in her movie, willing to work for free. Yangzom and her production team were only able to shoot the movie because everyone who worked on the film agreed to work for free or almost no salary. They achieved the unthinkable: they shot a feature film in 8 days, shot 10 pages of script a day and managed all this with a very small budget! Now they need your help to be able to finish the film and bring it to the movie theaters and to film festivals. They need to raise $20’000 for the post production of the film and this until October 8th!
WE NEED YOUR HELP FRIENDS, FAMILY, FELLOW FILMMAKERS AND SUPPORTERS OF INDEPENDENT FILMS!
Please spread the word and watch the Video of Director Yangzom Brauen where she will tell you more about the movie. Thank you!
The life of two desperate Swiss Expats who try to write their first script
turns up side down when they discover a dead body on the street. Will they
achieve to finish the script on time, or will they be lost forever in the
pandemonium of their circumstances? A Dark Comedy about the delusion and misconception of the Art of movie making.
