Tit for a Tat…CLOSING DOORS

In Uncategorized on November 11, 2010 at 10:43 am

Tit for Tat is a 1935 short comedy film starring Laurel and Hardy. It was the only direct sequel they made, following the story of the previous year’s Them Thar HillsTit for Tat was also nominated for the Academy Award for Live Action Short Film (Comedy), but did not win.

Pretty coincidental how Wikipedia has this information.  See how it says the film was nominated for an Academy Award for Live Action Short?  That’s the same expectation I have for the film, Closing Doors.  Except I want to win!

The film is coming together really nicely.  Sorry I have not been able to show more.  There is a surprise ending so I can’t even show photography stills of the film just yet.

I bring up Tit for Tat because we need to raise money.  We are at about 1/4 funded.  The beautiful thing is that funding has gotten us almost all of the way through post-production.  Problem is, the most expensive part is the road to come.  We have festival submissions, marketing, and transportation to and from.  We are smart and budget very wisely so please trust us with your cash money!!  Proof is in the fact we are almost through post-production only spending 1/4 of our budget.

We need your help.  A Tit for a Tat.  If you all give us some $$ then we will give you some perks.  The best deal we have is this one.

$25 donation gets you a DVD of the movie before it is released AND your name on the official t-shirt and movie poster of Closing Doors. Maybe I can bribe you with this photo we might use for the movie poster?  Your name will go up right in the corner!!!!  Sweet deal.

It is a no-brainer.  Especially if you are a fan of Nut Bucket Films or Brendan Coughlin and Dave Rodriguez (leads of Closing Doors) or even the film itself.  Here is the link.  Click $25

Just go in a enter how much you want to give.  You can give more Tit and get more Tat?

Here are some other Tats for your Tit…

Click $50Name in film credits.  And all of lower donation perks.  Yes, your name will roll in the credits at the end of the movie.  Everyone will know you helped out.  Plus you get all the stuff the lower donations get.

Here are some more Tats if you are really generous.

Click $100 – Receive a mention in the first Closing Doors Press Release. And all of lower donation perks.

Click $500Associate Producer Credit. And all of lower donation perks.

Click $1000— Invitation to the set and can have your “look” at the first “cut” (throw in your two cents). Plus all the lower perks.

All right, if you are strapped for cash and can only give a $10 spot then just do it!  It all helps.  Seriously!  We need it.  $10 will get you mentioned on our blog and social media sites.  And of course invited to anything and everything that Closing Doors does!

And, just so you know we are legit.  We are sponsored by PATRON OF THE ARTS (POTA).  This is a program designed to help filmmakers fund their projects.  It is similar to sites like IndieGoGo and Kickstarter but the beautiful thing with POTA is that it is a non-profit organization so EVERY DONATION IS TAX DEDUCTIBLE.  YOU CAN WRITE THE DONATION OFF!!!  Click POTA to read more about the program.

SO, PLEASE EVERYONE, GIVE US A HAND.  WE WOULD BE FOREVER GRATEFUL AND WE WILL SURELY SHOW IT.  YOU WILL SEE.  TRUST.

Thanks for your time today,
