Film Courage presents Goodbye Promise
Film Courage Presents GOODBYE PROMISE
Director: David Branin
Written by David Branin & Gregor Collins
Produced by Richard Jacob, David Branin, Gregor Collins and Karen Worden
SYNOPSIS: Upon moving to Los Angeles, Matt makes a pact with himself: "I'm giving you exactly seven years to become a working actor, and if you aren't by then, it's time to pack up and go home." This story begins seven days from seven years since his pact, and he hasn't 'made it.' This is his goodbye story.
PRODUCTION NOTES: Then 24-year-old producer Richard Jacob served for the United States Armed Forces, risking his life on the front lines in Iraq during part of the production of this film. Parts of Goodbye Promise were filmed blocks away from the 2009 Los Angeles County Station Fire, capturing some of this unsettling footage, as a twenty-person set prepared to evacuate between takes.
This film is 100% improv, with no script nor camera crew. It was shot with no production budget, yet raised over $16,000 on Kickstarter in 53 days with 227 backers during a 2010 crowdfunding campaign to assist with post-production costs.
Goodbye Promise stars Gregor Collins, Sarah Prikryl, Todd Cattell, Brian Durkin, Karen Worden, Len Cordova, Frantz Durand, Christopher Guckenberger, Tyshawn Bryant, Johnny Giordano, Jud Bogard, Amy Walton Hamilton, Jordan White, Kevin Deen, Dean Matthew Ronalds, Brian Ronalds, Raphael Sanchez, Shann Christen, & Benjamin Pratt
