Me & My Friend Alfred tells the dark comical tale of Jack, a recently divorced and jobless man whose life is spiraling out of control. When Jack thinks things cannot get any worse, he is taken hostage by Alfred, a dimwitted, scheming fugitive. Comedy and chaos ensue as Jack has to deal with being placed in humiliating situations brought upon by Alfred, chauffeuring his eccentric neighbor Abbey to therapy, and Husselhoffer, a sadistic ex cell mate of Alfred's who is looking for more than just a place to stay.
WHO WE ARE
The Maladees are a Writing & Directing duo comprised of Brian Rothlisberger and Bucky O'Connell. We have been writing and directing short films together since we were 14 years old. Over the past 3 years we have written, directed and edited 8 short films, and feel we are ready to make a feature film. "Me & My Friend Alfred" started out as a short, but we soon realized the story was best told as a feature. After eight drafts of the script, we shot and edited a trailer on a shoe string budget to be used as promotion to fund the rest of the film.
WHAT WE NEED & WHAT YOU GET
We are looking to raise $5,000 through Indiegogo, and are working with investors and sponsors for the remaining $25,000. The money donated will go towards:
-Compensating our hardworking cast and crew
-Marketing and Promotional Materials
-Perks for the much appreciated donors
Our goal with "Me & My Friend Alfred" is to make a quality, entertaining, professional film that can compete in film festivals around the United States.
Your contribution will not only help fund the film, but will also get you a variety of perks. Depending on the size of your donatation, you will receive postcards, stickers, a digital download of the film, a limited edition DVD copy of the film, a poster of the film, a copy of the script, and a select few will be invited to a screening of the film.
