All of us wanted to say thank you for helping us get so close to our goal. We didn't make the 50k but I have to tell you, 29,700 is pretty sweet.
You can still contribute to the production - go to www.dougspearman.com and see the PayPal tab under the Hot Guys With Guns Movie Poster!
Who doesn't love a good thriller? A comedy? An action film? A romantic comedy about two people who can't stay out of each other's hair? We all love those stories. What I wanted to do was mash 'em up all together - with two great, gay, smart, funny, recognizable and relatable guys; Patrick "Pip" Armstrong and Danny Lohman
Let's do this together -
Hollywood isn't the same as it was even as far back as 2008. Technology has made creating a film a lot cheaper and a lot less labor intensive. We can do a lot with a lot less than the average Hollywood feature - but we can't do it for free.
Every dollar we raise goes on the screen. We want to make Hot Guys With Guns under a SAG ultra-low budget contract. The crew won't show up for free, either, and why should they? And guess what, we're already in pre-production. We're going to make this film!
For less than the price of a movie ticket you can actually help make one. If we make our funding goal, indiegogo keeps 4%. If we don't, they charge us 9%. Help us make our goal of 50,000.
Relationships are everything -
I've been lucky enough to have worked in Hollywood for long enough to create some great relationships - the actors, the crew, our producers, our DP - all together we've done more than sixty films and television shows in our combined career - but now we're coming together to make a movie about Hollywood, The Velvet Mafia, two guys still very much in love and incapable of living together forced to work together.

So what's it about?
Danny Lohman is a wanna-be-actor. Pip Armstrong is a trust-funded Alpha-Gay. The two of them literally get sucked in to a crime spree that is wreaking havoc on Hollywood's Velvet Mafia. Careers, reputations, and lives are at stake; mostly Pip and Danny's the deeper and deeper they go to solve a case that's way over their heads.
It’s a good, old fashioned who-done-it, a couple of great chases, a very bad blond, rough stuff and some soft smooth skin. As our DP called it, Boy’s Town meets Chinatown.
In our appreciation for your give - we've got a list of things we'd like to give back - Set visits, posters - from the fantastic series of art created for us by Frankie Batista, tickets to the premier, signed scripts. I’ll even make dinner for you and the cast for 300. And I can really cook.
Let me say from the cast, the crew, the producers and me - thank you for helping us go back to work.
