Mission Statement

REGGIE & RAINBOW will showcase a unique vision, vibrant style and fun aesthetic in a fresh and exciting way. This film will incorporate a large, diverse team of collaborators from different backgrounds and influences, all joining forces by focusing on story and visuals to make something special.

The Story



REGGIE & RAINBOW
are fraternal twins. They love pancakes, 90s hip-hop jams and to partake in the occasional petty theft. While Rainbow is ready to throw in the towel following many failings in their life of crime, Reggie has his eyes on a house that seems like the perfect hit. They may not be talented as cat burglars, but Reggie and Rainbow have a remarkable twin power that, if nothing else, connects them to each other in a sweet and special way. Overall, it's a story about the feeling of not being in the place you thought you'd be, but discovering that where you are, with the people you love who love you back, is right where you're meant to be.

and more to come...





We have each invested so much time and energy (not to mention money) into this project already and we all really believe in it. As you know, making movies ain’t cheap — even 11-page short films! — and we want to be sure we make the best version of this story that we can, so we have put together this budget of $20,000 is for us to pay and feed our top-notch cast and crew during our 3-day shoot in Austin, as well as rent out a few locations and line up costs for post-production after the shoot, including the following:

gear rentals for camera/lighting/sound
costumes
set and art pieces
props
crafty and meals
insurance
fuel for out of town talent
sound design
music licensing
film editing

16% - Cast
25.3% - Post-Production
27.6% - Crew
31.1% - Gear Rentals + Locations


EXTENDED GOALS

If we raise funds beyond the original target of $20,000, not only will we be absolutely ecstatic, there are a few key places those extra funds will go:

- professional sound mixing + color grading
- soundtrack
- festival submissions
- animation + design
- festival travel
