A LONG TOMORROW is a mystery romance about a headstrong young physics professor named Julian Farrow who is mysteriously transported back to 1959 for just one day—just long enough to save the lives of a young couple.
When Julian and his hapless younger brother try to figure out how it happened, they both fall for a sweet young woman who turns out to be the daughter of the couple Julian saved—who shouldn't even exist. The brothers struggle against each other to win her love. But when both his brother and the woman die in a horrible accident, Julian must figure out how to bend time to bring them back.
But what if he has to choose which one to save?

Creating this feature-length film is our dream. We are looking at a Fall 2011 start date for principal photography. We'll be filming in Connecticut. We have a great team on board, and we're hoping you'll join us for the ride! Yes, we need to raise funds, but we also wanted to create a way to share the fun of movie making with you.
Care to Go for a Ride?
The money raised through this campaign will be directly spent on "packaging" A LONG TOMORROW. Packaging is a term used in the industry to describe the process of attaching key cast and crew members to a film so that a financing entity sees value in investing in the project.
On A LONG TOMORROW the packaging process has involved the formation of an L.L.C., securing the rights to the original source material (Jack Finney short story, "Second Chance"), hiring a casting director and launching our social media campaign. Up until now, these expenses have been out-of-pocket for us. We are now asking for your help so that we may continue our efforts in bringing A LONG TOMORROW to the screen.
You work hard for your money, and we will too! In exchange for your support, we would like to share with you some of the joy and excitement of the filmmaking process. Please choose one of the perks that interests you, then come along for the ride!
We are intent on securing investors for our film, budgeted at $2.2M. However, if for any reason this film does not go into production, funds donated here in exchange for perks we cannot fulfill will be refunded, less 5% to 9% for fees incurred by this campaign.
Join us for this journey, as we promise it will be filled with stories, adventure and fun. We look forward to creating many memories and sharing these moments with you. Thank you for your support!
