Upcoming Film Project

We're gonna make a movie this fall (September 27-October 9) and if you're into that sort of thing, there's probably a way you can help. First, what's the film about?

I'm glad you asked.

It's about a one-armed, lion-tamer named Gus who hates crime.

It's about a teenager who never gets the girls. But then he finds out he's a werewolf who's really good at basketball and dancing and boom- human girl magnet.

It's about a pigeon.

Sorry. Here's the actual synopsis.


Josh, a young white social worker, moves into a predominately African American neighborhood in Cincinnati. His next-door neighbor is George, a recently retired African American who doesn’t exactly welcome Josh into the neighborhood.

Over the course of one day, through a series of misinterpreted events, both Josh and George learn that in order to really become neighbors they are going to have to do the hard work of getting to know each other. Blurring (and sometimes crossing) the lines of racism and prejudice, both men discover that the real healing will only come in time…one genuine conversation at a time.

This movie is what they call a No-Budget film. We've been hustling the streets, begging, borrowing and stealing to get this sucker off the ground. We're making progress. But still need help.

We need people who can make a meal for a cast and crew of 15-20 hard working people. Or if you know a restaurant owner who could do the same...

We need boxes of energy-boosting snacks and drinks (granola bars, fruit snacks, fun-sized things, etc)

We need to talk to the owner/manager of the following places for locations:
Convenience store (just need the exterior)
Gas station (exterior and a bathroom)
Car Wash
Suburban house with a patio room (or room with LOTS of windows) and laundry room

We need people who'd be willing to look thru a website listing all the props we need and loan/give us said props. (that website will hopefully be up next week)

We need someone who'd be willing to loan us a car for the out of town actors to use on their off days.

We need prayer. Lots of it. Excessive amounts of it.

We need doppler 5 to promise us there'll be no rain.

If you can help with any of these things, please email us at: film@vineyardcincinnati.com. Put what you can help with in the subject line.
