Lets Make a Movie!

kickstarter

Read more about the Kickstarter and help us make Hit the Hitman!

A lot of rappers love to say “we make movies!” but I’m ready to do just that. Most, if not all of you on this email list are subscribed because you are a fan of my music or another artist on Under Sound Music. This will be my first major endeavor into making a short film and I want it to be a project that I share with my fans, friends and family!

Our film is called Hit the Hitman. It’s kind of a dark comedy that I wrote after I read an article online titled “Man Hires Hitman to Kill Hitman Hired to Kill His Wife.” What I thought the article was about was actually wrong but was actually pretty funny so I wrote a short script    and    shared it with my brother who got on board as the lead character. I’d tell you more of the plot but this is one of those things where if I tell much more then I give it away!

Making a movie isn’t like making music. In fact, making music is just a small piece of what it takes to make a movie. It takes a lot of people and of course that means that it takes money! We started a Kickstarter for this project and we’d love for you to be part of it. For your participation we’re offering some great rewards; everything from a mention in the credits to a signed poster and DVD.

Please take the time to check out the Kickstarter page and if you think it might be cool to see a movie written and directed by E Major, donate and make it a reality. Every dollar helps get us closer to our goal.    We’ll    be updating as we go to let everyone know how things are progressing and we’ll do a video when we’re at 50%.

Thanks for your time and I hope you join us in making this movie more than a dream!

PEACE!

“One Last Run” Kickstarter

Artwork by Hilton Carter for his upcoming film, One Last Run

The above image is for an upcoming short film called One Last Run which will commence shooting in November.  It’s being directed by my good friend Hilton Carter who you’ve most likely read about here a number of times.  the film started as a story that was told to me by a friend of a friend and I thought it just HAD to be at least a short film.  I told it to Hilton who at the time was focused on a more dark aesthetic (see Moth).  Being that I’m kind of stubborn I did a draft of the script and gave it to Hilton.  After spending some time with it, he came around to wanting to make it happen.  He’s since added to what I’ve written and each subsequent draft that he’s done has really upped the ante as far as drama and depth.  To say I’m really excited to see this thing come to fruition is an understatement.

Which brings me to the subject of this post.  As Hilton has researched locations and worked on making OLR come to life, he’s realized that a little bit of scratch could only help to up the production value of what could be a really awesome project.  So he’s started a Kickstarter account and is raising money from friends, family and fans.  Please check out the account and watch the video and even if you can’t afford to put some cash forward for it, please share it with someone that might.

Thanks for all of your support!
