A Martian Summer

 - Hello! Thank you so much for checking out our GoFundMe page! We really appreciate it! We are looking to raise funds for a feature film we are creating this summer called, A Martian Summer. The finished product will be entered into the 2018 Sundance Film Festival under the category of U.S. Narrative Feature Film.  Here is a link if you would like to learn more about the festival:  http://www.sundance.org/festivals/sundance-film-festival/about/#submit 

Film Summary:
 - A Martian Summer is a coming of age drama/comedy. The story centers around three friends stuck in the long summer limbo after graduating high school. After a chance encounter with a beautiful girl, Benny, a social outcast, falls in love with his idea of who the girl could be. Nearly a year after meeting her, Benny runs into his dream girl once again on one of his early morning paper routes. With the aid of his best friends Frankie, a serial womanizer, and George, a homeless gossip, he is determined to win her affection. 

What the Funds Will Go Towards:
 - Costs of Locations
 - Cast & Crew
 - Special Equipment
 - Craft Services
 - Post-Production (i.e. sound design, video effects, etc.)
 - Transportation
 - Costume and Prop Rentals

Our Story:
 -  We are three friends who are very passionate about creating art through film. Beginning in high school we have been involved with several film projects and competitions. Since graduating we have gone on to produce our own short films and videos. We hope to hold careers in the industry and we see this feature film as a step in the right direction. With your support, we aim to produce a film that will be accepted into the Sundance Film Festival and seen by leaders of the film industry. We cannot thank you enough for any help you can lend us and if you have any questions or concerns please contact us!
