What's The Deal?
IndieGoGo is a neat little site that allows filmmakers like us to raise money for projects by contacting fans like you directly. Through your PayPal account you can securely make donations (more than once if you're feeling especially generous) and know that your information is safe. You can also help us out by using the above SHARE THIS PROJECT link and blasting us out to your followers on Facebook, Twitter, and various other social media outlets. This really helps us raise awareness for our project and raise money faster than we could have on our own.
And, what do you get out of this? Well, take a look to your right. We have a list of various VIP PERKS that come in at different levels of donations. You can also donate anonymously and negate your VIP PERKS but still know that you helped a passion project like Assassins get off the ground.
What the heck is Assassins?
Life changed for Chris that Thursday evening. The brutal murder of his ex-girlfriend has left him shaken. More than that, he is haunted by the face of a man he doesn’t know, just a stranger Chris saw walking down the street moments before he opened the door to his ex-girlfriend’s apartment; moments before his world came crashing down.
And it’s not about to get better.
Only a week later, Chris finds himself faced with yet another stranger, a man who claims to know who his ex-girlfriend’s killer is. The stranger’s name is Simon and the explanation he gives makes Chris’ blood run cold. The man who murdered his ex-girlfriend is an extremely dangerous man, a contract killer, and the fact that Chris has seen his face can only mean one thing: he will be coming back to make sure Chris doesn’t share what he knows.
He will be coming soon to kill him.
Simon, a bounty hunter who has been tracking the mysterious killer for nearly a decade, has a plan. As he has never laid eyes on the killer, Simon will lure him out into the open so that Chris can identify him. Then he will take him down. But Simon might not be as helpful as he appears to be and Chris quickly finds himself becoming a pawn in a very deadly game of retribution between two savage men willing to do whatever it takes to see the other man dead.
Why we are Pitching To You?
This is where you fine folks come in to the picture. We need your donations to make this film a reality. Any donation goes towards the payment of the cast and any applicable union fees. Because we are working in the union space there are extra fees that hinder our ability to make this film come to fruition without your help.
Because we said so. Just kidding. We feel that it's worthwhile to go directly to the people that will be most invested in the film to get funding. Yes, investors are very interested in the film, but they're more worried about how much they're getting on the back end. Whereas, by going out to our friends and fans, we know that you're interested in the film itself and want to see it through to its completion. There's nothing quite as exhilarating as being part of something that brings so many people together for a common goal.
Cool. I Donated. But, I Still Want To Help You Guys.
Thank you so much. We're blessed to have you for a fan and friend. Still want to help out? It would be absolutely amazing if you could share this page with your other family and friends via whatever social networking tool(s) you use the most (Facebook, Twitter, etc) and really help us get the word out. This is about as viral as it gets and our success depends entirely on word of mouth.
I Don't Have Any Cash. How Can I Still Help?
Very nice of you to ask. As we brought up earlier, it's incredibly important to get the word out about our film. The more eyes on our project, the more chances we have of raising the funds, and ultimately making this film for you. We ask that, if you can't donate, share this page with all of your family, friends and acquaintances. And, in turn, hopefully they can share/donate with their network. And so on, and so on...
We look forward to getting Assassins off the ground but we can't do it without your help. Thank you for your consideration.
