The Replacement - My Kickstarter movie where clones are the new fashion

Hey Skullknighters,

So I've just launched my first Kickstarter project. I've worked in Film for about fifteen years now doing shorts, commercials, and occasional feature work, and now I've decided to make an ambitious project of my own. It's a dark comedy called 'The Replacement' and it's set in a future where people grow their own memory sharing clones as often as they get new outfits. Living parallel lives, the clones can become experts at things much faster, with some going to different university, others practicing music, others exploring the world. They start changing the world for the better, but their natural born originals can't share memories; instead they get a small hare of each of their clones wage.

It's a world where normal people are unemployable and can't aspire to anything because their clones are just taking care of everything. And it pisses a lot of people off, who see their clones living out all their own dreams of fame and talent. The movie is set on election night as our main character flips through channels seeing his clone on each one in different roles until he finds his clone elected as the first clone President. And he's had enough.

If you guys are interested, I'd appreciate any support you can give, even if it's just to share it around on social media. This is a pretty tight community and I'm hoping to get it out there a little more.

Here's the link

I'll have several fun updates to post as we progress. I'm happy to answer any questions as well. :serpico:

Pledged. I'm a sucker for scifi movies that tackle social issues. Looks cool and good luck!

Is this another one of those scams where the backers never get what they were promised? :troll:
Alright, alright, I'll pledge my allegiance to the clones once I get home. Hope you get the funding!
 
Thank you guys so much! It means a lot! :ubik:

Here's some additional content from the movie, a commercial set in world, Robocop style:

Please spread the word, we need donors!
 
More Fun stuff! We're nearly 50% there and today's our halfway point! If you haven't checked out our campaign we added some new fun rewards and content. Come check us out and consider donating so we can get over the hump today.

We just released a new video as well, this time it's for our clone running for 43 seats of congress. It's pretty fun:

We also just got featured on WGN Chicago's Nick Digilio show and had a fun talking about the movie and what led us into making it.

Check it out on his podcast here:

Thanks again to all the supporters so far.
 
We’ve had some very generous support so far from the Skull Knight community and I want to thank everyone who’s helped us make our movie ‘The Replacement’ a reality. It really means a lot. We’ve recently signed on Mike Bove, (http://www.bovevisuals.com/) a three time Emmy winning cinematographer to shoot the film.

However we only have 6 days left to meet our funding goal otherwise we don’t keep anything we’ve raised so far. It’s all or nothing. If you were considering donating before but haven’t gotten around to it yet, please don’t delay.

But because I don’t like to plug my stuff without giving you something new to see, we’ve released our final faux political campaign ad. This time our clone has made it all the way through Congress and is running for President.. and Vice President. Vote today for a leader who can be everywhere at once:

Thanks again! :serpico:
 
This sounds like an interesting concept. I chipped in what I could. I hope it works out and you're able to make it. Good luck!
 
Thank you guys so much! It really goes a long way! I just added new rewards as well in case any of you want to come to Chicago and be in the movie. It'll be a good time.
 
But now with less than 2 days left, we have to make our BIG PUSH! And because we don't believe in just asking for donations without providing something fun, here's our last video from our viral campaign series. Abe's original has been mistaken for one of his clones by ANTI-CLONE ACTIVISTS and kidnapped for 'RANSOM.' Something to show the darker side of our world. Help free him by helping us reach our goal.

Hey everyone,

WE DID IT! We just passed 100% on our initial Goal! This means the movie is happening! Thank you so much for all the donations!

And it ain’t over yet. We've got 12 more hours. 12 more hours to ask What IF? We can do a hell of a lot with a $13,200 micro Indie Film budget, but what IF we had the budget to add an extra shooting day? What IF we had more money for visual effects? How far can we take this thing? All extra donations beyond our goal go to STRETCH GOALS, to make our movie EVEN BETTER. So if you were meaning to donate but haven’t yet, you can still make a difference.

And as always, here’s a little something for your trouble, we recently did a Radio Interview for the short that can be listened to here. Great for the ride home.

And here’s a recent write up we received in Serious Wonder magazine

Awesome, man! Congratulations! I upped my pledge this morning because it was still a bit shy of the goal at that point, but I'm glad everything worked out for the best. Now I can't wait to see that movie! :guts:
 
CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL! If you are seeing this post, it's because you in one way or another have been instrumental in the funding of this project. Even a simple "like" or "share" goes a long way. A heartfelt thank you for dealing with our non-stop annoying updates. We promise to make you proud with the end result. We made it to 118% and all excess funds will go to additional visual effects and production design. Thank you again, so much.
