Thought I would share my first endeavor into feature filmmaking. Last week I started a kickstarter for my first feature film, Over Exit Out. If any of you guys have the time, Id appreciate if you would click the link below and check it out.
Here's a synopsis
A group of teens clash after the suicide of a friend. A coming of age story told through loyalty, violence, and acceptance.
The students of Red Hills High School deal with the many trials and tribulations that go along with growing up. Cain York, Loved and respected leader of the theater troupe, commits suicide after a particularly brutal episode of bullying. This event rocks the foundations of Red Hills, setting the stage for chaos, destruction, and revenge. A dark and violent coming of age, Over Exit Out is the story of a generation of youth forced to grow up beyond their means.
A lot of people ask us, 'why do you need ALL that money for a high-school drama film?' To be honest, its a legit question. And from the synopsis, its not really clear. (but thats just the nature of a synopsis)
'Oh, these are just some angsty kids fuckin around, smokin weed, and flaming each other on facebook'
While thats true, Over Exit Out...escalates. Revenge is a dish served sub zero in this film.
EX: A car chase, swat team, bear repellent, home made bombs, hazing, mustard gas (dispersed through fog machines), etc.
This film is as much an action film as it is a teen drama. Thats how I wanted it. Over Exit Out challenges the audience to question the morals of revenge. How far can you take it, before you become the bad guy?
Also, here's an infographic showing exactly how we'll spend the moeny: Budget Info-graphic.
Right now we're just trying to get ourselves out there.
Our biggest asset is to get noticed. Or the fancy way of saying it, 'signal boosting.' If you guys think the project is something you can get behind, share it, post it or just like us on FB, twitter, all those social networking sites that everyone has. We're everywhere. Seriously.

We know its a lot of money, and our intake has been slow. very slow. like, sloth like....according to KickTraq we'll need to average $4,000+ a day. Sigh. But whatever. I mean...why climb up a hill when you know there's a dragon at the top? Cause fuck it. I'd rather die by dragon than die in a bed covered in my own piss and shit waiting to die from cholera.
But I digress. Thanks for reading this entire post. lol. 4 for you. Lemmie know what you guys think.
