Thank you so much looking at the "1001 Faces" movie campaign!! You probably glance over tons of these and I truly appreciate your time. This film has to happen! Get on board and help out!
A Vietnam medic soldier, Sean, returns home to the public who oppose the war, with the memory of hundreds of dying soldiers that he was trying to save etched in his brain. Upon return he learns that he has a disabled four-year-old son, Derek, with his high school sweet heart, Julie. With the help of Dolores, the eccentric grandmother, and Candy, the unorthodox therapist, Sean must face the faces he sees to regain the love of his child and soul mate, but first he must understand the true power behind his own love and dreams.
Why should you help us:[/b]
This is a story about heart, and overcoming the challenges we create for ourselves. But mostly, it is a love story. Not in the cliché boy meets girl way. But rather, human meets human and how important and often times under appreciated that relationship is. I truly believe this is an important story to tell. Vietnam vets didn't receive a loud cheer when they got home. This film is not about cheering for war, but rather cheering for the people who have come to terms with the damage war creates in their personal lives.
I am a young, independent filmmaker. Though this doesn't stop me and money shouldn't either. If you are curious about my past work, you can view it on my youtube channel (linked here) or on IMDb.
Where is your money going:[/b]
This is a period piece (Vietnam) so production becomes much more costly. I know is seems like very little for a feature, though in my life I have learned to stretch the value of a dollar. With that said, this budget is the bare minimum and receiving more money would just allow us to make the film even better.
So, your money will be going towards equipment (lighting, tapes, tripod, green screen), wardrobe (it's the early 70's and soldier uniforms), transportation, locations (both getting to them and making them look like it is 1970). Again, this is the bare minimum, though I am hopeful that some great people will be inspired and contribute.
When is all of this happening:[/b]
We plan to shoot in July. This is all going to happen very fast if we can get the funds in place (we plan to submit to Sundance among other film festivals).
