At the end of this year, we will be ending our fiscal sponsorship arrangement with Fractured Atlas for all fundraising on Dismissal Time. But we still need as much support as possible to cover film festival expenses and our push for more public screenings in 2023. If you would like to make a tax deductible donation before the end of December, we would really appreciate it! https://fundraising.fracturedatlas.org/dismissal-time-short-film
While Dismissal Time: An AJ Epyx Short Film premiered last week, we are now in preparation for outreach for schools for special screenings and additional film festivals. We humbly ask for your support by donating to Indiegogo to help cover the costs for marketing materials, booking rentals for future private screenings, and covering film festival entry fees. We have a very special film that all of us in the cast and crew are proud to be part of and we want to give it the biggest push possible. Thank you. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/dismissal-time-short-film-marketing-promotion/x/1858114#/

Our indie western AMERICAN GUNSLINGERS is currently seeking a new Executive Producer with funding and branding resources to bring to the project in addition to fulfilling vital production needs. Looking to shoot in Long Island and Upstate NY as well as New Milford, Connecticut within the coming year. Check out our award winning “Best Trailer” and please submit all direct inquiries to email@example.com for more information.
For those who don’t know, this is the very last week of our Kickstarter campaign for the upcoming western project AMERICAN GUNSLINGERS. So far, we have only raised 14% of our fundraising goal since we began last month. We’ve actually done a little better than our previous campaign on Seed & Spark which was greatly affected by the initial lockdowns caused by the global pandemic. But this is still an all or nothing situation where if we don’t meet the minimum goal, then we get no funds to start production next year. We would have to consider other options.
We understand that the $12K goal is a long shot to reach between now and our November 21st deadline. So even if you can’t afford to contribute, you can still help us a long way by sharing the Kickstarter link. All it takes is the right eyes to view our work and be willing to support what we need to get up and running. These rewards are also worthwhile to get should you decide to contribute.

For those of you who continue to support our efforts, we launched the Kickstarter campaign for the upcoming indie western film AMERICAN GUNSLINGERS.

Tell your friends, family, and anyone who loves westerns! http://kck.st/33QWGQ7
We are also seeking any promotional media and brand collaboration to help aid us with the upcoming production of American Gunslingers. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
I want to take this moment to talk personally to everyone who has been following the progress of our next film production American Gunslingers from the beginning. If you visit the crowdfunding campaign link at Seed&Spark, we have given potential backers a lot of insight about the story, the production, our team via Team Highlights, and why we need funds for the production. What I have rarely talked about is why this project is personal to me.
With every past project that I have completed, I am usually drawn to story elements that I can relate to in my life. Chris Corulla and I knew we wanted the basic premise to be about two brothers finding a treasure by following a map tattooed to their arms. But it was Drew Henriksen, our screenwriter, who came up with the backstories and found ways to make each character three-dimensional. What ultimately came out of his script that made it personal for me was how this story talks about depicts innocent children who are forced to grow up after tragedy, the life choices they make that set them on opposite paths, and how they are reunited to right the injustice of their past. There is no better way to tell this kind of story than in the old west where those themes and conflicts are directly in your face.
On a professional level, I have made several projects set in current times where I have had to work with the resources that I had available. After the success I enjoyed with my last feature film, Vendetta Games, as well as my award-winning short, The Saxophonist, I felt that I needed to push myself to another level. It could not be more of the same. There had to be a push to make something that forces me to be detail specific in all my artistic choices and elevate the quality of my work as a filmmaker. I believe a western gets me out of my comfort zone and there will be a great deal to learn from this experience not only as a filmmaker but also as a human being when the time comes to be away from city life to shoot this project out in natural locations.
No matter how this campaign pans out after Saturday morning, this journey will continue one way or another. I really hope each of you will continue to support the American Gunslingers team past these remaining 48 hours that we have left to reach 80% of the Seed&Spark goal. Thank you.
As of today, we’re down to the final 8 days & need to reach 80% of #fundraising goal! Without the necessary funds, production needs such as horses, western-style locations, costumes, props, and special filming equipment will be harder to obtain. In these final days, we ask that you please do these 3 simple things: CONTRIBUTE! SHARE! FOLLOW! Please support the production of American Gunslingers at Seed&Spark! https://www.seedandspark.com/fund/american-gunslingers
