“Monarch” Film Premiere!

$290 of $500 goal

Raised by 5 people in 2 months
In 2017, I released a short film called "The Cross at the Gem", a short docu-drama featuring a nameless Detective investigating the heroin epidemic that plagues Dayton, OH. It went on to be nominated for two awards at the Lander University 2WK Film Festival that same year.

You can check out last year's film at the link below:

Now, in 2018, I'm producing a sequel (of sorts) featuring the same Detective, but this time in a full fledged narrative story.

The film is called "Monarch."

On Thursday, May 17th, I'll be throwing a big premiere event! We'll have performances from some of the cast, a screening of "The Cross at the Gem", the premiere of "Monarch", and then we'll tie the night off with a Q&A session with myself and the rest of the cast.

The Neon, Dayton's finest indie film theater, has graciously offered to host the event. But I still have some costs I'm going to need to cover.

With your help, I can make this a real gala event akin to the big Hollywood movie premiers! I'd like to have all kind of special goodies and things for all of you, and I'd like you to be a part of the process!

Every little bit helps make this a night to remember, and I've got all kinds of special goodies for you guys as a thank you!

Cheers!

The Lander University Film Festival has come to a close. Though "MONARCH" may have walked away empty handed, feedback from the judges has been overwhelmingly positive, with several clamoring for a longer, more elaborate version.

Imagine their delight when I informed them there was, in fact, a longer version of the film being released at a special event in May.

The film's editing is at about 50% right now, with the musical score at about 25%. Now that the festival is done and over with, my attention is no longer divided...I fully expect to be done editing by the end of the month, with the music following shortly thereafter.

Thanks again to everyone who has donated and supported so far. This is going to be an amazing night to remember.
