My name is Erick Boychuk and I'm an independent filmmaker in Vancouver, BC. Along with my incredible team I'll be bringing you my first feature length comedy called "The Cover-Up".
It's a story about a love lorn young man who in an attempt to win back the 'girl who got away' ends up having to lie to her about a crime he didn't even commit! After being blackmailed, bruised, and basted, yes basted with a turkey baster, he realizes if he really cares for her he'll have to risk everything on telling her the truth.
Our team has been assembled primarily of volunteer cast and crew. So far, we've funded the entire film out of our own pockets and although we have had HUGE support from the Vancouver film industry, getting many rentals, services and labor for a discount or free, we still can’t do this alone.
Personally I really want to make this movie because comically enough, an underdog guy with romantic upsets in his life isn’t too far off from my own experience! So it should at least be a story I know how to tell well.
Moreover, this film is putting a lot of very creative people to work. Our unbelievably dedicated cast and crew are giving their time and energy to make this film one of the most passionate projects I have been a part of, so I don't want to let them down.
What We Need & What You Get
The money we raise will go to help pay the ever expanding cost of production and to ensure there will be enough budget to finish all the editing, sound, and music on the film. We have a lot of great perks that you really can’t buy anywhere else, from advanced copies of the movie and signed memorabilia to red carpet screenings and invites to exclusive parties.
Other Ways You Can Help
If you have some friends or family who might like this, let them know! You can also buy a perk as a gift or make a contribution in someone else’s name. Don’t forget to follow and share us on Facebook and Twitter. ANY word of mouth or contribution helps.
