ABOUT THIS PROJECT
OLD DOGS - A comedy short
'Blackmailed out of retirement by his irksome brother, can an old dog pull off one last job and finally put his feet up?'
Hi, I'm Ivan. I'm a producer and I WANT YOU TO HELP US WIN AN OSCAR! Join us for this RIDE of a lifetime opportunity in getting OLD DOGS to the Academy Awards 2013. Jack is always at the Oscars and that's where we'll grab him for our next feature!

WHAT WE NEED AND WHAT YOU GET
We begin shooting on May 28th no matter what with whatever we have. This is a 'use what you raise' campaign and we get hit with Indiegogo fees plus bank transfer fees - so the more we raise the better!
Check out the excellent perks on the right hand side!
If you aren't in a position to support the film financially at this time, that's okay! Another way to help is by spreading the word about it using the share tools here on IndieGoGo. Join and share our Facebook Page and follow on twitter @IvansOscarRun. Tweet and blog about us! Direct others who might be able to get involved back to this IndieGoGo page. Anything and everything helps!
Every pledge lifts the quality of the movie and is gratefully appreciated! And keep in mind that most of the perks simply won't be available once the campaign ends.
YOUR contributions will help MASSIVLY in the following ways:
• Employ many struggling artists
• Pay for higher profile actors to boost the profile of the film
• Pay for much needed items including lights, camera equipment, location permissions, props, special FX, wardrobe, hair and make up, travel, food and much, much more besides.
• Pay for the Oscar campaign
• Tax payers, please contact me to learn how to take advantage of tax breaks available on this project. +44 793 222 0000 or ivan@withitfilms.com
I will be producing a budget that will show how we are spending all of the contributions on the film. We are raising extra private equity as well outside of Indiegogo. My pledge to you here is that all of the money raised from this campaign will go on production value and getting it all on the screen.
ADDED BONUS!
In addition, everyone who contributes will be entitled to one FREE session of EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) by the producer who is also a practitioner (Value $200!). Don't know anything about EFT? See the videos in action here: Tapping Guru

OLD DOGS
SYNOPSIS:
Ex muscle man DAVE is trying to enjoy his retirement, and is training his large old dog LUCY to fetch his set of keys that he is always losing. But when his younger brother MIKE turns up out of the blue on his doorstep, all his peaceful plans are thrown upside down.
Mike convinces Dave to join him on one last job - to help him kidnap STELLA, a rich businessman’s daughter. Mike tests out his chloroform on the unsuspecting Lucy. Not wanting to leave her behind, Dave brings the sleeping dog with them in the back of the station wagon. But while they are subduing Stella in her flat, a drug dealer steals Dave’s car.
They put Stella in a double bass case, and are forced to take the train to the arranged place to exchange her for the ransom, but she starts to wake up on the way..
Meanwhile the drug dealer, having completed a lucrative deal, stops at a car park - a notorious dogging site.
Dave is called by the police regarding his stolen car (and dog) as the hand-over is being made. While he is distracted, the crazed Stella overpowers Mike, beats him up and gets away with her father and his money. Mike blames it all on Dave for leaving his keys in the car.
The dealer, hearing noises in the boot investigates and is attacked what he thinks is a werewolf just as the police raid the dogging site, arresting everyone.
Dave sits locked out of his house, but is surprised by Lucy who returns carrying not only his keys...
