Want a movie that is hilarious, original, shocking, heart-felt and action-packed with crazy colorful characters, mind-blowing music, and too many memorable moments to count?
Maybe? Hmm...how about if we include an homage to the Princess Leia/gold bikini scene from Return of the Jedi featuring the one & only Amber Benson?
Bingo! We're all on the same page! Join us, and brag for the rest of your life how you were a crucial part of cinematic history. We've already been to Comic Con and on Ain't It Cool News, Monster Popcorn, and Whedonesque. Next we're slated for screenings around the country, including a week-long run in NYC and a special screening (9/16) at Stan Lee's Comikaze Expo. And the fun hasn't even officially started yet. Climb aboard, and hang on!
"Ward Roberts' DUST UP mixes droll absurdity with a heady dose of over-the-top insanity to create a drug-fueled alternate-reality wild west that is unlike anything I've ever seen." ~Tim League, Founder/CEO of Alamo Drafthouse Cinema

See Lead Actress Amber Benson and Director Ward Roberts talk about why it's important to become a DUST-er AND see the official trailer here.
How do YOU become a part of the Dust Up posse?
Simple: float us some moolah (AKA loot, paper, clams, fivers, pesos, kermits, lobsters...MONEY!), then tell other people to do the same. Spreadin' the word is just as helpful as spreadin' the wealth.
Along with the pride you'll feel of being an original Duster, you and your friends will be rewarded with tons of cool & exclusive Dust Up swag, including Amber Benson pictures & autographs. Heck, you might even get to meet her in person, if you play your cards right.
This campaign is about taking Dust Up from a film nobody has ever heard of and making it a movie everybody wants to see. We have just 30 days to do it and we'll only do it with your help! We are competing against huge studio movies who spend more money running one tv commercial than we've had for every single aspect of this film combined. The only chance we have is YOU.
Want to know how your moolah will be spent?
A fair question. The film itself is already done (and totally fantastic!), so your hard-earned dough will be put towards ABSOLUTELY CRUCIAL expenses essential to getting the film out into the world for all to see & enjoy.
We have screenings starting in late September (like this one in LA), we're busting out On Demand via all digital platforms on OCTOBER 2ND, and finally our DVD will be knocking down your door on NOVEMBER 13th. Just in time to shove it inside a turkey or something.
But before all of that delicious DUST UP goodness, we have some expenses to cover first. Expenses like:
- Marketing, Marketing, Marketing!!!
- Travel expenses for cast & crew
- Daunting distribution deliverables
- Super sexy errors & omissions insurance
- Rad merch like t-shirts, posters & stickers
- Taxes & accounting
- And other business-y things Dust Up needs to conquer the world.
Without these Dust Up will simply sit on a shelf collecting, well... dust.
So...bust open that cookie jar, and cough it up, peeps!
You'll be glad you did. Don't believe us? Peruse the column on the right side of this page to see your delicious rewards.
