Why Help Now?

 Baby praying

This dog world is a mess. The public is Not Listening. Big groups are making so much money, do they really want issues to stop? I'm asking all dog groups, rescues, animal owners/lovers and all who are "SICK OF SEEING NOTHING CHANGE" to join us please! I can't do this without you.

Help support this campaign, and wake up the world. "How many rescues can we keep starting?" Help stop the madness that exists for smaller rescue groups! They can't win, if dogs keep coming! Let's slap the world in the face with a "Hollywood Sucker Punch." Entertain the stupid humans, and educate them at the same time. Reprogram everyone!

By joining this movement, we not only "Run to the window and scream, I'm mad as hell, and I'm not going to take it anymore!!" (borrowed from "Network") but we also demonstrate the fact that millions of us, never want to see another sad ass commercial, at 1AM on issues we can stop. A stronger approach instead of band aids is needed.

My name is Foster Corder. My film is "Conversations with a Pit Bull." 

The parent company of the "Pit Bull Energy Drink" has given us a 200K matching fund goal! Please help? 

Anything less and we get nothing! :-( ... Anything over 200k, they match dollar for dollar. A $3 contribution and you change the world!

Our Matching Funds Goal!

 What r u going to do?

Our Story

A select group of dogs on death row, tell each other, their heartbreaking struggles to survive against abuse, violence, and prejudice. The film is told from the perspectives of the dogs -- live action with voice-over -- both their thoughts and conversations. It involves a series of flashbacks showing each of their stories from inside the "Dog Pound" -- aka death row.** (Not all of the dogs are Pit Bulls - many breeds and mutts will be represented)** Despite the many dog films Hollywood studios have made, the message we want has yet to be on screen.

We must encourage pet adoption, avoid pet-shop buying, stop dog fighting, and emphasize the importance of spaying and neutering! Imagine a film with these undertones becoming part of modern day "Pop Culture" making everyone care & take action for change. My method and message is very entertaining, touching and completely fresh. This is an impacting motion picture, with a surprisingly happy conclusion. "Put the medicine in the candy!"

I want to bring not just every Pit Bull group & owner around the world together, for the first time with a common cause, but ALL dog owners.

All the news shows have quickly jumped on any "Pit Bull story" that comes across their desk. 99% as you know have been negative. Let's give them a world wide positive movement to report about! This film shall cause everyone to start talking at work, on the radio shows, talk shows, and news. If a film makes people talk, change happens.

 Freeway dayFreeway event Starting in LA, I want to do "Freeway Blogs" across America, making my way to NY, during the campaign. Help me please.

What We Need & What You Get

We must raise at least, 205K to help make the film. I have other small investors that have agreed to help fund $188k, the additional needed post-production part of our budget. This is based on me (us) showing public interest in, seeing or caring about the cause & film, and donating to help make it happen. So review the gifts and contribute what you can, please.

Petty Mike Vicks Dogs Let's not go this way again. Kids watch us, they repeat what they see us do. Wonder what his daddy showed him? How we treat animals, is how we feel about people. Choose.

Yes, it can cost much more to make a movie by Hollywood studio methods. That's not the approach we are taking. Of course we would love to make this film with a powerful studio. That would make it easier, no doubt. However, the dogs cannot wait! I will "BEGG" many stars, to help this film for "SAG Scale Rates." They don't need the money!? 

Danny & I Sir Paul  Mr D & me

I have my own grip truck with all the film lighting & gear needed. I have a warehouse available to me for building the sets. The guys & gals from film crews I've worked with over the years have agreed to work on this project for minimum wages allowed by law. (Phone bill payments & gas) LOL. The general rule is, "If you can't pay a lot, feed them well!" This is what we will do. Allowing also for, feeding the animal actors, outside locations, permits, insurance and other production related issues. This is a well thought out plan, but I need your help and so do the dogs.

Ebony 1977I have my hands up, for your support

 I've been working towards this world change for a long time. Let's do it!
