We own the movie rights to the bestselling book Between Heaven & Hell by Peter Kreeft. This film is a wonderful mixture between real events and what if events. These 3 extremely influential men never met on earth but within moments of each other all die and meet for the first time in the afterlife.

Your support means so much to us, we appreciate you!



I have spent the last couple of years working on putting this whole film project together including acquiring the movie rights, working with the book’s author and publisher, writing the script, putting together a team/crew and working on many aspects of filmmaking, meetings and consultations with financiers and producers, and preparing for this crowdfunding campaign. I have had most of my team together for several months now, and it is time for us to make this film.

This is where your generosity comes in. We have gladly spent thousands of dollars already getting to where we are right now, but we need additional funds at this point to take us to the next level.

I want to be open with all of our supporters. We have a three level film production plan.

Level I 

We have a successful initial crowdfunding campaign. If we are fortunate to have a fan base that supports our initial goal, this movie will be made. Funds will be used for legal, casting director, initial test filming at specific locations we're trying for an important look we need in the film with travel.

Level II 

We have contacts already set who will help us raise additional funds after the initial crowdfunding campaign for Screen Actor Guild (SAG) actors. We want to make a SAG film with great recognizable faces. The better and more recognizable the leads, the better chance we have at a wide distribution of our film. That is, more people will see our film!

Level III 

While this is an indie film, level three would be substantial support to make a studio level film (i.e. cut no corners so to say). While that might seem like a far stretch to some, it’s not insurmountable. We also have contacts ready to set us up with meetings with financiers who if they really like what they see, we could get their support.

No matter what level we achieve, this film will be made. Just think of it. The better we do in raising additional funds after the crowdfunding campaign, the better your donation will look. If we are successful with this campaign, we truly feel confident that we will reach a higher level of funding beyond this campaign. BUT again remember, we will make a good movie at any level. SAG actors with audience appeal, desired location costs and equipment, post-production and marketing are the real needs for additional funding beyond this campaign.
