Twist the movie

$400 of $5.0M goal

Raised by 8 people in 31 months
 Hello, My name is B.W. Van Alstyne. I am a Navy Veteran(disabled), a retired chef and the author of the children's novella The Sweet Adventures of Henry P. Twist; a modern day faerie tale  about an elderly pastry chef who rediscovers his youth in a world of faeries, myth magic and the most scrumptious sweets ever imagined.  To put it simply in movie terms ... "It's Willy Wonka meets Peter Pan meets the Wizard of Oz."

And speaking of movie, plans are underway to produce a full length, independent feature film based on my book. The budget is $5 million.

The first $50,000 raised will go towards script revisions, casting -- including attachments and pay-or play fees, legal fees, producing fees, presentation materials, key art and promo videos (apart from the existing book trailer, seen here, on the website, YouTube and Vimeo).

What you will get. 

$50 - $200
A signed copy of my book and a personal "Thank you" from the Author / Executive Producer

Hey Everyone,

I just had an idea that I think will get this project moving along a lot faster. I am trying to get as many people as I can to give just $1 or $2. That's all! The goal is still $50K or higher. So please tell all your friends. Free copy of the book to the first 200 people.
