Thank you! 


JILTED is an independent feature film, shooting in Southern California in 2015, and created by Lady Rooster Productions; a female-led award-winning production company. The film follows Lilly, a Type A wedding planner just left at the altar, and her 3 best girl friends, as they search for Lilly's birth mother. During their road trip adventure through California, these 4 women discover more about themselves, and each other, than they ever imagined possible. Among the ups and downs of love, trust, family, and friendship, JILTED asks the question, "What do you do when the picture you had of your life, and the life you have, don't match up?"

Call it a Quarter-Life Crisis... Call it Saturn Returns... Whatever you call it, the sh*t hits the fan with gusto, right about... now. Join us, and bring this unique story about the 20-something experience to life!

JILTED is the debut-feature of an already award-winning production company, director, writing team, and cast. This is it! The indie-darling we can't wait to show you on the big screen! It is positioned to launch us to a whole new level within our industry.

Because of that, we can promise you that we will work harder than anyone you know to tell this story, that every donation you give will be transformed into a cinematic experience you will be proud of, and that this team of filmmakers will knock your socks off with the final cut. When JILTED is playing on a big screen near you, you'll be able to point it out to your friends and say, "I helped make that movie."
As a JILTED funder, you'll not only help make an indie feature. You'll also support a woman-led and award winning production company, and get tons of cool stuff!! Plus some serious street cred as an indie film supporter.

As filmmakers, we choose to highlight these key messages:

  • Self-love makes true love possible.
  • Everyone has the power to change their own life.
  • Family is family, but friends can be, too.
Our rule of thumb: A good story, well and beautifully told.

Lilly’s life is perfect. On the morning of her wedding, her meticulously crafted life is about to reach the zenith of its perfection when she finds herself at the altar, unable to say, “I do”. Determined to figure out what happened, she joins forces with her three co-conspirators: Courtney, her blogger bestie and Maid of Honor; Sam, her ex-best friend from childhood; and Maggie, her dread-locked, distant sister who lives in their dad's backyard. The women embark on an impromptu and surprise-filled road trip from California to Mississippi, unexpectedly discovering themselves along the way, and realizing that the answers they really need are down roads not included in their itinerary.

JILTED cannot be made without your donation. The script is fantastic, our team is amazing and dedicated to this story, the cast is ultra-talented, but without your financial support, JILTED will not come to life. Filmmaking is expensive! Way more than you'd expect. Here is a selected list of what your donations will pay for:

  • A Cinema Camera - This top-of-the-line camera, a favorite of indie filmmakers, gives us a high-quality and surprisingly affordable digital alternative to 35 mm.
  • Cinema Lenses - These high-end lenses create the cinematic "look" we all want to see on the big screen, and one that will support the beautiful imagery of JILTED.
  • Camera/Dolly Equipment & Lights - These are the tools we need behind-the-scenes to make what's in front of the camera come to life for you!
  • Locations
  • Props
  • Wardrobe
  • Sound Equipment
  • Feeding as many as 30 people twice a day for a month
  • Set Design and Decor
  • Travel Expenses for Production
  • Data Storage
  • City/County Permits and Fees
  • Union Fees
  • Insurance: so many kinds -  Equipment, Rental, General Liability, Workers Comp, Production Vehicles. We told you it added up quick!

Enough about us.  What about you? What do YOU get, other than the satisfaction of helping to make an awesome independent film? We have some pretty amazing perks for you coming right up, after these messages...

Please Help Us Get The Word Out

Whether it's $10 or $10,000, your donation is SUPER appreciated and will help us make our film - we thank you in advance for giving. But remember - a financial contribution isn't the only way to show support. You can also TELL YOUR FRIENDS (including your ex-best friend from childhood) about this film and our campaign. Share, post, email, update, and tweet along with our team to as many people as you're willing to tag. You never know who in your network will fall in love with JILTED, and help make our film a reality. Indiegogo has some sweet tools for sharing at the top of this page, and you can use these social media sites to connect with JILTED and spread the word: FaceBook, Twitter, YouTube. 

The more social media likes, tweets, and shares, the higher our Indiegogo "gogofactor" rises, leading to global exposure, mentions in the press, and new additions to the JILTED family!

100 bucks is super, and 100 shares can be just as powerful!

"The film industry is in a state of gender inertia. There is no evidence to suggest that women’s employment has improved in key behind-the-scenes roles over the last 16 years," - Dr. Martha Lauzen, Executive Director of the Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film; San Diego State University

In 2013, only 6% of the directors on top grossing films were women. Women made up only 10% of the writers, 3% of the cinematographers, and 25% of the producers. Yet the UN estimates that in 2014, women make up almost 50% of the population on our planet.

We believe women, as the "almost 50%" on our planet,  deserve just as much visibility, creative license, and decision-making power as the rest of our global population. The making of JILTED puts women in key creative, decision-making, and technical roles in film. Your support of this feature is an emphatic step towards greater access to women's stories and experiences in the entertainment industry.

Hollywood sometimes... or perhaps often... spits out high-calorie, low-nutrition stories. We often leave the theatre these days still feeling hungry... For more human experience. For more characters like us. For more answers to questions we've had trouble answering ourselves.

Independent film doesn't answer to the lowest common denominator, or the highest funding dangled in front of us. It supports diversity in style and story; innovation in filmmaking and storytelling; and unique visions and voices in cinema. In indie film, there is a place for any filmmaker willing to look at ourselves, ask the hard questions, fan the flames of curiosity, and still consider humanity with empathy and compassion. As independent filmmakers, we tell the stories we feel need to be told. Right here. Right now. Stories that have meaning to our contemporaries. Stories that enlighten, educate, inform, and entertain. Stories that connect us with the other humans on the planet. 

In Hollywood, filmmakers hear "No," a lot. We're asking you to change it up. Say "Yes!" to independent film by picking one of our perks and donating to JILTED.

Your financial support, and your sharing of our story using social media, is invaluable to the making of this film.

THANK YOU - we couldn't do it without you!!
