The time is upon us! I am gearing up to shoot my second short film, SAVING FACE!
The film takes place in an alternate universe wherein everything is pro-wrestling, and it tells the story of a tag-team’s downfall when one of the members decides he’s going to become a bad guy.
We still have a couple of weeks before we find out how ROOM SERVICE fares in CBC’s SHORT FILM FACE OFF competition (our episode airs this Saturday, August 24th at 8:00pm Atlantic), so until then, I am still an incredibly impoverished filmmaker, thus, we’re really going to need your help to make this film! We’ve launched an IndieGoGo campaign (Saving Face: a short film by Glen Matthews).
We’re attempting to raise $2,000 to help alleviate our many, many costs (wrestling ring & arena rental, lighting, catering, insurance, etc). Don’t fret though, we’re not just asking for money without giving anything back!
- Any $ Amount: You will be made a member of the “Thank You Club” where you will receive exclusive behind-the-scenes videos and updates.
- $10: Digital download of the award-winning short film, “Room Service“.
- $20: Digital download of “Room Service” with director’s commentary with Glen Matthews.
- $50: “Saving Face” Collectors Cards, featuring the characters from the film.
- $125: “Saving Face” T-Shirt, featuring the heroic tag-team featured in the film, Over-Time.
But that’s not all, as we move forward collectively, I will be sending videos to all of the contributors. At $1,000 raised I will post a video of a pro-wrestler scoop-slamming me. At $1,500, a video of a suplex, and at $2,000 a video of a power-bomb. And if we even go two cents above our goal, I will post a very embarrassing video of me as a backyard wrestler in high school. I do not want to do this.
Look at that photo. Do you understand how terrible a video of teenage-backyard-wrestling-Glen will be? Do you?
Are you not entertained?!
