This is an independent short film that is being created entirely by Ohio University media students and being shot in Athens, Ohio. The film takes place entirely in a bar and tells the story of a suicidal man who forces his bartender to carry out his death wish through a life defining conversation. The film is written by Ron Shalom and being directed by Dean Parker. It is being produced by Dean Parker, Mackenzie Keaton, and Josh Lehrfeld.

A film like this requires certain financial needs to make it possible. This includes paying our professional actors, paying for our location, feeding the cast and crew, purchasing props, makeup and costumes, and many other things.

By donating to our film, not only are you helping make this story come to life, but you are also supporting student filmmaking. Everyone on our crew is dedicated and ready to make this film the best it can be. And with your support, it can be possible.

Any donation of any amount is helpful and greatly appreciated. And there are also various rewards if you become a backer:

$10 - A special thank you in the credits

$20 - Everything listed above, plus you will receive a short special thank you video from the cast and crew  

$30 - Everything listed above, plus access to see the completed film before the general public

$50 - Everything listed above, plus you will receive a copy of the script

$100 - Everything listed above, plus you will receive a movie poster

$200 - Everything listed above, plus you will be credited as an executive donor

$350 - Everything listed above, plus you will be credited as an executive producer

$500 - Everything listed above, plus if you are of legal age and live in Ohio, one or all of the producers will take you out for a drink at any bar of your choice
