HELP US HIT OUR STRETCH GOAL OF $4650
UPDATE: We Hit Our Initial Goal of $3000!!! - July 11th, 2013
Thank you to all who have already supported us. So what now? Well, we are not stopping there. We want to hit our stretch goal of $4650. What does that extra money do for the film? Well it allows us to get better camera equpiment, better props and better loctions! This also helps cover our fees with IndieGoGo and taxes! We've even added NEW PERKS!
"The Strange Case Of My Sole" is a dark comedy. It follows the story of a happily married middle-aged man. He stumbles across a pair of boots and slowly becomes obsessed with them. When he wears these boots he feels youthful, impulsive and reckless. Is it the boots? Or is he having a middle-life crisis? Or is there something more profound going on?
The tone of the movie is a mix of comedy and oddness -- with a dash of ridicule thrown in for good measure. With all apologies to Mr. Allen and Mr. Lynch, imagine if Woody Allen and David Lynch made a short film.
We are truly excited about this film. Our goal is to make something unique, funny and ultimately entertaining. We think you are going to love it as much as we do.
