Cassandra woke up with his kidneys sleeping beside her.
When her husband Eddie died a few months ago, Cassandra didn’t have any idea that he had checked that box on his driver’s license to donate all his organs. His kidneys now belong to Sam, a surfer from Long Island who she met up with the night before. Some vodka, a little Kahlua, several rounds… It’s not very clear to either of them how this happened.
Thankfully she had an appointment with her shrink that day...
“Falling to Pieces” is a short film ( and was a Finalist in Showtime’s Tony Cox Screenplay Competition at the 2013 Nantucket Film Festival) that will be financed by your contributions to its Kickstarter campaign. Thanks to Kickstarter, the opportunity to get involved in professional filmmaking is now available to anybody and everybody. All of the money that you pledge will go into the production of this film. And yet, unless 100% of our campaign goal is met, your pledges will not be processed by Kickstarter and the project will not be funded.
As you saw in the clip above, we have already shot a central scene of this film. The tone, style and look of the entire film is all there. And we only need to shoot 12 more pages! And to do that, we need funding. Your money will be used directly to secure locations, obtain insurance and permits, rent camera & lighting equipment, purchase props, set dressing and wardrobe, provide some compensation to our awesome crew and talent, and of course, feed them all during our shoot days.
So please take this jump with us, tell your friends and family, like us on Facebook and Twitter, and together we will all make a very moving, funny, and beautiful little movie.
