Rescue Me: The Movie
We want to make our Rescue Me film... We have tried several times to pitch our film to a big Hollywood studio. Working with studios is important to get film funded but it comes with a lot of give on our part, which could take away the integrity of the story as well. We wanted to avoid all that and make the best possible movie we can while staying true to the story we have written.
Luckily, we found the nice people at GoGetFunding (applause) which have brought us one step closer to being able to create and deliver this amazing project to our current and future fans by giving us the ability to have our project funded.
Because we’re making a smaller movie without a big studio playing big brother and undermining every step we take, we can finish it for fraction of the cost, in a lot less time which will also give us the ability to get the final product out to our fans a lot quicker.
The screenplay is based on a story written by Gerard Lima.
What we are doing
The easiest way to answer that is by saying, we are raising money for our film. We are making this film with the help and assistance of people who support and wish to see the final product. We are hoping to raise $50,000 and hopefully more in time to have this film in post-production by the end of 2013 early 2014 in order to be able to start entering it into different Film Festivals.
Why we are doing it
We are just a couple of friend who decided to take a chance and hoping to realize our dreams. We know this is possible. Most importantly, we know that we have an amazing story and this is going to be an incredible film. We considered several ways to finance this project but then we started to think … investors back out, we would be forced to put the film on hold, then I had people tell me; “Banks and nobody else, we will fund this movie since you are not a big name Hollywood writer or producer.” That is why we as will you join us and help us make this film happen?
