Great story and film. The Film is based on the concept of the 80s feel-good films like The Goonies, Stand By Me and The Monster Squad. These films invited us in and gave us a chance to feel like any of us, no matter where we started from, could be heroes and – at the same time – could connect us with our challenges and fears. These films were about the underdog overcoming despite the odds – yet the films were warm, inviting and family-friendly as well,” stated the films director, Joshua Porter.

Production to Begin on the IndieGoGo Crowdfunding Film Project, "To Find A Monster"

Production to Begin on the IndieGoGo Crowdfunding Film Project, "To Find A Monster" | CrowdFunding Films | Scoop.it

Currently one of Indiegogo's crowdfunding film projects, the film is reminiscent of the 80s feel-good films like The Goonies, Stand By Me and The Monster Squad.

 

"To Find A Monster" is the story of two friends, Lenny Thorpe and Patrick Barry. In the summer of 1988, these 8th grade outcasts, fed up with the bullies and cliques in their small town, decide to catch the attention of the town, and Lenny's school crush, by making a legendary monster movie.

 

Armed with a miraculous overnight script, an ill-inherited VHS camcorder, a small-town community of characters most akin to a holiday fruitcake, and the magic of those days when Innocence begins playing spin-the-bottle with Destiny, the two set out to find the key ingredient in any monster movie recipe... a MONSTER!

 

Through a fateful connection to Frank, a former Hollywood fixture turned indie movie house owner, the duo get to premiere their masterpiece for the whole town to see... along with one visiting V.I.P. The film is a hit whose success comes on the coattails of the invaluable lessons that only life, loss, and love can teach a boy longing to honor the man who left him behind to finish his story.

World-class Concert Pianist Story is being Documented by Big Fat Monster Films

World-class Concert Pianist Story is being Documented by Big Fat Monster Films | CrowdFunding Films | Scoop.it
Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) January 23, 2014 -- Feature length documentary being produced about, "The greatest concert Pianist that you have probably never heard of".
Philip Cardwell's insight:

The life story of an world class pianist (William DeVan).

A few details:


When William was a child, his mother realized his abilities and sold everything to purchase a piano.

By the age of 15, DeVan was selected to perform with the Chicago Symphony under the conductorship of Arthur Fiedler (not a student performance but he was the soloist.) and was also one of only five students accepted to Juilliard the first year he applied.

Holds the prestigious distinction of being one of twelve “Steinway Presenters” in the world.

The only American to take first prize at the Vianna da Motta International Music Competition.

Toured Portugal during the Carnation Revolution, which deposed the fascist Dictator Estado Novo. During that time, DeVan was forced to practice in the basement of the American Embassy where he could be protected.
