My name is Leon Pierce Jr. and I am a filmmaker and I love making films. It's my greatest passion that brings me more joy than I can describe in words. I recently co-wrote a screenplay with my co-writer Trevor Dilucchio. I will be producing and directing it, some time between the end of this year or first thing next year.
I have been writing, producing and directing sketches and short films for almost three years now, all produced through my company, Insane Genius Productions. I've also funding countless of my projects, all out of pocket, even when I had nothing in my pockets and found myself being broke, hungry and homeless. I still found ways to make my film projects happen. But now moving forward with producing my first comedic feature film "Welcome Matt" I need all the help I can get to pay for cast, crew, equipment, food, locations and even legal fees. Any artist knows that to create is like the best thing ever! But to make films these days, though cost a lot less now, with the digital age making everything so much more affordable, still cost some decent amount of money.
"Welcome Matt" is a comedy about a young writer, Matt and his fish, Hank. Matt and Hank are very much alike in the way that Matt thinks like Hank, if he leaves the comfort of his apartment, he'll die. So Matt stays inside and just writes, talks to Hank and gets visits from his mom Abigail and best friend from college Franky. All seems well until Matt's advance from his new book "Vacations of Death" runs out and now he's facing an eviction. With time running out, Matt finds himself being thrown off track by his ex-girlfriend to his neigbors, landlord, Franky and even his own mother. Either he'll finish his book on time or have to face his biggest fear, of facing the outside world.
Please donate and help fund this feature film. It would not only further my own career but all those who will be involved. It is also a really relatable, real, funny and enganging story that will entertain and inspire a mass audience of people. Any thing you donate would greatly be appreciated.
