NEXT CHAPTER...Securing the Cast & Pre-Production!!!
Jonathan Brunson March 2013
Oh man...The TALENT, from near and far, came out due to a craigslist posting, an ad on FB, listing on Twitter, notices on LinkedIN and Stage 32...For a movie created by a man who never knew the god given talent he was given!!! After 5 rounds of Casting Calls, FINAL CALL ending on 2-23-13, we have recieved an OVERWHELMINGLY JOYFUL response within 53+ TALENTED, DRIVEN, HUNGRY actors and 30+ production DETERMINED, HARD-WORKING, MOTIVATED hopefuls!!! It's a big deal to a guy like me, because I was always the guy fighting for his chance in front of the table. Waiting for direction, waiting for that gleam in their eyes that says..."This is it! We found our ______" But instead, I was bypassed or pushed aside for someone else. This is why I've NEVER STOPPED pursuing my dream in being apart of a great film!!! I knew these guys let go of a diamond!!! Because I can be molded, reshaped, and made to bring a film, in it's creation, to the highest standings it can ever become!!! But, one day, a russian boss who had no faith in me, allowed me to create something. Something that felt fresh, different, and explosive!!! Something that couldn't stop growing and moving inside of my heart, mind and spirit!!! And I KNOW...ANYONE who is successful today, had this EXACT SITUATION as myself!!! Maybe they had better resources, but that should be NO REASON that you can't believe in this, believe in me, believe in the possibility of an actual GOOD STORY that COULD very well be!!! That's why, with time running out...I'm not giving up!!! I WILL try this again because I believe in this THAT much!!! Now, we're prepping for callbacks and securing the cast, locations, and also the production hands. All that's missing is...This. The support that could really make this take off. This, that can help a young man realize that his vision is not to be a deadbeat dad, a loser, a drug dealer, a killer...But a man to become a solid director, actor, writer and be able to reach a high point that I can one day help someone else realize their dream. But it starts here...with this kickstarter campaign, the following of the Facebook/Twitter pages. So, I'm saying that this is NO JOKE, this should NOT be taken as a man who is "Fooling others" or "Fooling himself" do this for the artist in each and every one of us that no matter our lives today and how much we attempt to bury it...Just can't remain hidden. Help IN 5 DAYS...become that BLOCKBUSTER potential hit!!! All it takes is a pledge, from YOU...

So...After just 3 rounds of auditions, we have the numbers to show that I5D is well on the rise!!! From our January start to present time, we have accumulated 43+ potential superstars and 10+ potential crew members that can really help this shine!!! A surprise to a guy who spent many years standing in front of the casting table, DYING for his chance to be apart of something. Now, I'm the guy hearing these actors speak my language, read from my creation and want to take this on to make this the undoubtably surprising hit it truly can become!!! We are now amidst one more round, the FINAL CALL for I5D, and then we hit callbacks!!! Our schedule is still running smooth and on time, which shows that you can surprise a closed mind once a dream makes it's presence felt!!! We still have time, so we are praying and pushing for more pledges to really make this film happen. There WILL be more to come!!!
