New Project: Need Help

Alright boys and girls.  I need everyone's help on this one and 30 days to do it in.  It's doable, but we can't do it without you.  My friend and I and developing a movie, but in order for us to do it it needs to be funded, that's where you come in.  If you go to kickstarter, a site that helps people fund their projects, you can give what you can to our movie.  If you can only donate a dollar, thats just fine.  The more you give though the more perks you receive, all of which will be displayed on the link below.

The film is based on the characters Eric, Jimmy, and Reed, who are best friends and are attending high school together in Portland, Oregon in 1981. They decide one day to revisit one of their favorite middle school activities, which is playing at the local video arcade. Eric doesn’t seem to enjoy arcade games as much as he used to, despite being the best in the group.  When they finally convince Eric to go, he tries out a new arcade game that nobody else seems to enjoy much. It’s title is….Polybius.
Eric wakes up two days after playing Polybius with no memory of what happened the previous day. He returns to that arcade, finding the arcade machine is gone. The arcade owner has no memory of it, and neither do his friends. But Eric does, and he makes it his mission to find out the mystery behind this game, who created it, what their goals are, and what happened to him that would cause him to forget an entire day.  Our film will be true to the Polybius legend, while adding it’s own unique personality. I have looked into stories of those who contributed to Polybius, including Blister, Steven Roach, the fan game, and many other stories people have made to add to this urban legend.

If you would like to read more on the urban legend of Polybius, go here.

We would greatly appreciate anything you would like to donate.  I will keep everyone up to date on what will develop in the near future.  The link to the site where you can donate is here.

Below is also a teaser poster for the film.  Thanks.
