HELP US MAKE A MOVIE FOR OUR GENERATION
In the ‘90s we had Clerks.
In the 2000s we had Napolean Dynamite.
In the 2010s you will get...Sammy & Sherlock Can’t Get Any.
Sammy & Sherlock Can’t Get Any is the story of a couple who spends the day trying to score weed in a dry suburban town.
It’s about pot...but it’s not really about pot.
It’s a comedy for anyone who’s ever felt like the world is against them.
It’s about our society. We use marijuana as a micro example to talk about larger issues. To show that the world doesn’t “work” anymore for regular people.
There’s been plenty of documentaries debating the legalization issue. This is NOT one of those. We do not preach. We do not show any statistics. Those are out there and you can find them easily if you aren’t already aware.
Sammy & Sherlock Can’t Get Anyexplores and the same issues but in an entertaining, narrative format not yet seen by mainstream Hollywood.
It is the first intellectual stoner comedy.
It is a stoner comedy for non-stoners.
Think Harold & Kumar meets Woody Allen.
WHAT WE NEED THE MONEY FOR:
- Pay our talented cast & crew (they deserve it!)
- Rent the proper Camera Equipment & Lights
- Legal, Accounting, Insurance fees
- Travel & Food to keep our cast & crew happy
As you can see this is a tight budget for a feature film, but we know that if you can help us achieve this goal we can make this amount look like a million bucks on screen!
With your support we can make this movie a reality.
Lawrence Zoeller has been making films since he was 15 years old when he first picked up his parents video camera. He made over a dozen shorts with his friends back in Virginia between 1998-2008.
