If you have ever wanted to be part of something bigger and have a chance to help others then you may want to check out The Guitar Player movie. The movie is based on a homeless man who who when he was in high school accidentally kills his best friend during a wrestling practice and now plays the guitar on the street and must confront his past and the choices that have been made and what fate has thrown his way. What is unique about this movie is that the creator, Micheal Stein, is seeking funding from the public. So this would be a publicly funded film where 50% of the profits would be donated back to local communities to help those that are homeless.
The film is set to begin production in late October, but only if they are able to reach their initial goal of $150K. They are using KickStart in order to gain pledges which is a great site that can help you gain funds for your ideas and projects. To help provide a incentive for your pledge at certain levels of pledges you can get for example:
- Signed Guitar from the cast
- Tickets to the premiere
- Be on of the extras in the actual movie
- Be mentioned as a producer of the film
- Businesess can have a presence at the opening day of the film
All this and the ability to help others who may have become homeless and participate in the making of a film. Make your pledge today for as little as $10 and let’s see what a public effort to help the homeless can make a difference.
