Making a Movie: How to Build a Kickstarter

Primary Instinct

Making a Movie” is a series of columns that chronicles our attempt to make, market, and distribute a film with Stephen Tobolowsky in 2014

Thanks to you guys, we met our Kickstarter goal in just 12 days. Our Kickstarter project now has just a few hours left to go (you can still back us by clicking here), but we are well into pre-production for our upcoming shoot.

Our Kickstarter project took me roughly six weeks of work to create. Looking back, there are a lot of things I would’ve done differently. After the jump, I share some learnings I’ve had throughout this process. I also had the chance to chat with Cesar Kuriyama and Matt Reynolds, both of whom had great success with their respective Kickstarter projects. Cesar successfully funded his 1SecondEveryday app and Matt got his film, The Great Chicken Wing Huntfinanced. A podcast recording of our chat can be found below.

enemy-ENEMY_DAY4-0054_rgb

What would you do if you discovered that there was another person in the world who looked exactly like you? How quickly would your world be torn from its moorings? What would you do? Would you ignore that person? Or would you obsessively track him/her down? Either way, you’d probably feel like something was gravely wrong with this universe.

Denis Villeneuve’s Enemy, which features Jake Gyllenhaal playing two versions of himself, provokes this hypothetical unease, drawing it out expertly until it’s almost unbearable. The film is out in theaters this weekend. After the jump, check out my video review of it.

Teaser

Making a Movie” is a series of columns that chronicles our attempt to make, market, and distribute a film with Stephen Tobolowsky in 2014. Our Kickstarter is still live and you can support our film project by going here.

I set out to make a movie with Stephen Tobolowsky this year because I realized that I had a healthy working relationship with one of the greatest character actors of all time, and I had a job that allows me to be relatively free for most weekends (thus giving me the free time to develop/shoot the footage we might need to assemble a film). Initially, my plan was to teach myself how to shoot and edit video to the point where Stephen and I could just make the film ourselves. While I’ve made some progress on that front, I quickly realized that even if I did get good at these things, I’d still need a crapton of help to make the type of movie I wanted to. So I decided we needed to work with a production company to make this movie happen.

The company we’re now working with, Super Frog Saves Tokyo, embodies everything we want in a production house. They are small, scrappy, internet-savvy, and they know how to put together great videos. After the jump, see a teaser trailer they made for our upcoming Kickstarter film. Note that this was not made using Kickstarter funds, but by Super Frog as a fun creative exercise in how we might position/market the film.
