WHO I AM
My name is Maurice Hooks and I'm a 23 year old film maker living in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I moved here to attend college once I found out about all the things going on with film here. This is my first major project and it would mean the world to me to see it completed. BOOST (originally called The Run) was an idea that I had while in highschool. I got the idea for this film after being assigned a music video project in my multimedia class. Since then this simple music video concept has morphed into an original film with an engaging story that will keep you guessing until the very last scene.
Clutch is a street racer turned car thief and has started boosting cars for Tammy Espinoza. After proving himself by assembling a group, he's been succesfully boosting cars for a few months. Good things come to an end when local police find the warehouse where Tammy and her crew hide out. After Tammy gets arrested, Clutch and the others get a call about a car that needs to be delivered to Mexico and must figure out if their former boss is setting them up or if it's a legit job.
WHAT WE NEED & WHAT YOU GET
To make this film, we need YOUR help. We need $2,000 to cover the equipment, props, and wardrobe items. We have a great list of perks that you will receive for contributing to this project, including getting to hang out with the cast and crew at the wrap party or seeing your name in the credits of the film. Even if the goal isn't reached, the film will still be made. We will work with whatever is contributed. Both the cast and crew are dedicated to this project because we believe we have an original story.
This story means a lot to me as the director and writer. I've spent years developing the story and I’m excited about finally bringing my vision to the screen. After attending a film festival last year, I've worked on my craft to prepare myself to enter one of my works into a film festival. With my films, I try to think outside of the normal. I draw inspiration from everywhere; a song I hear, a game I play, something I see, or even the mood I'm in. I'm tired of seeing the same story lines regurgitated by Hollywood and feel that independent film makers often have a much better plot than some of the things that bigger studios produce.
OTHER WAYS YOU CAN HELP
I understand that some people just can't contribute, but I would still appreciate it if you could 'like' the BOOST facebook page and follow the making of the film on my youtube page. I would also appreciate it if you could share this campaign, the facebook page and the 'making of' videos with your friends and family. Don't forget about the awesome indiegogo share tools.
