THE FUN IN FOREVER depicts the rocky marriage of a young couple Thomas (Mark Webber) and Ava (Teresa Palmer) plagued by tragedy, affairs and the inevitable adversities they face as a union trying to survive the peaks and valleys of life.
Thomas and Ava met. They fell in love. They got pregnant. All within 3 months. This story brings us five years in to their life together. We start to see the cracks in their foundation, their daughter Lily is the glue that keeps them together. An exploration in to the challenges of marriage, monogomy, trust, communication and how faith in something greater than ourselves can ultimately strengthen the spirit.
Shot in a bold new cinema verite style using improvisation, non-actors and real life relationships to achieve a level of vulnerability and intimacy rarely seen in film.

We need initial money to kick start our movie, if we can raise enough to cover our upcoming shoot in Australia then we will be able to get our principal photography fully financed ($1.5million).
We are doing this film in a very non-traditional way so that it can really speak to audiences on a very raw and real level. Doing a grass roots campaign like this helps us to maintin our artistic sensibilities to the fullest extent.
We know that our film is special and that we will deliver a project that is so poignant and impactful that it will connect emotionally with the audience in a way a lot of films aren't doing these days.
With your help, we will be able to achieve this!
