Production for a Western feature film about a bad luck town, an aging boxer and a star struck young woman. Image - Tony Ritter

A main selling point for any movie is it's trailer. A great trailer can create a multimillion dollar production. My idea in a nut shell: Parallel story lines in a dwindling gold rush town at the end of a spur into the mountains. Here we will meet an aging boxer who has suddenly become the #1 contender and a young woman who has been framed for murder. His next fight will cost him his sanity and she is trapped in a web of deceit. These two literally have no way out. The trailer itself will be broken into thirds which will work harmoniously or alone. Here is a monetary break down: Lens Rental: one week, full package $4,000. These are the best lenses available and absolutely necessary. Travel: crew of eight, $3,400. Extras: eleven actors with costumes, $2,200. Director: $1,000. Cinematographer: $2,000. After giving Kickstarter the required fees, $12,000.00 will have to get the job done. I promise you, I will pinch every penny and do every bit myself as I can. You can clearly see that I have no sound budget. A possible cut will be in crew. With at least myself, the director and a costumer we should get through. Padding the lense rental to a week will insure against loss of a day for what ever reason. Thank you to Nevada Film Commission for preliminary approval. Also, intrest has been shown by Lingere Football and major networks!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Three concerns.

The Weather.
Probably the most devasating factor which could delay production is a bad weather weekend. Luckily, I have a great team. What the Director can't get on camera, the Cinematographer can correct in the lab. Also, the re-enacters will always be there with the ghost town they have painstakingly been restoring.

On Site Labor
My background outside of a decade in higher education has been in construction and labor. When things have to be hauled, assembled, built or torn down I will be there. After all, I am the writer my job is already done. I might as well be good for something!

Plain Old Logistics
My team, at this point, is spread across three Western states. We have never met in person. And our equipment will be rented. That probably sounds like a disaster. But I swear by these three words: Keep It Simple.
