Burnlab Productions, LLC (Burnlab) is looking for approximately $50K of additional funding for a feature length film, MARION KNAPP DOESN'T SMILE, a story about a down-and-out comedian whose fortunes change when he receives an offer to roast the memory of a man he never knew, and who no one ever liked.  The pay is huge, but but so is the price.

The film will be see a number of screenings, will be submitted to film festivals and shown to industry-participants, in an eventual hunt for wider distribution. The comedian, Marion Knapp will be played by a professional with 30-plus years acting experience in both movies and tv (the actor has worked on Burnlab's shorts films: www.youtube.com/burnlab375

We are also rounding out our cast with a number of top New York Film/TV actors as well as real stand-up comedians.  Burnlab will perform the tasks involved in all production (pre- and post- included).

Burnlab is a limited liability company run by three members living in NYC with day jobs including actor, student, and CPA; on the set they are director, cinematographer and sound technician who have produced or assisted in producing a number of short films, sketch comedies, podcasts, edited down thousands of hours of captured footage, written original scripts and composed original music. Shooting locations will include Connecticut and New York and the remaining cast will be taken up during casting. This is Burnlab's first attempt at a full length feature film but we know we can make a film we believe in, trust, and that is clear to the audience and to you as an investor.
