Bryan Wizemann has screened with Rooftop Films not once, not twice, but three times!

This superstar triple-alum is Kickstarting his latest feature, a coming-of-age high school story that is sure to be a powerful piece of drama. Bryan’s previous feature, ABOUT SONNY, premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and went on to win the 2012 Grand Jury Prize at IFF Boston. The team he’s assembled for the shoot are all veterans of some of our favorite indies of the last few years including THE COMEDY, THE LONELIEST PLANET, and LOVE IS STRANGE. He’s cast some amazing young talent to bring this All-American coming-of-age drama to life.

Their pitch video is an inspired “look book” of striking images from films that inspired the look and feel of the film. Another amazing thing that Bryan is offering is the entire script for the film, free on the Kickstarter page. He wants to be as transparent with his backers as possible: Here’s the script, here’s what you are supporting, I’m confident you will love it. What a great idea! For all aspiring writer/directors out there, read it as an example of  tightly-crafted character study.

Check out the film’s Kickstarter page and lend your support for the independent film community by donating or spreading the word!
