AUSTIN, Texas – June 22, 2015 – Writer/director David Jones graduated from the International Academy of Film and Television in 2012. Shortly after meeting local stand-up funnyman Paul Theron he began developing “The Away Team.” The narrative is loosely based on the Heaven’s Gate, a millenarian cult. The group splashed onto headlines in 1997 when it’s members took their own lives in an effort to board an alien spacecraft they believed was trailing the Hale-Bopp Comet.
Jones draws much of his inspiration from the likes of Ricky Gervais and Larry David. The Away Team will no doubt offer a similar brand of humor. Paul Theron is at the helm playing the role of the cult leader. Mike Dunne, who Jones regards as “one of the funniest people to roam the earth” is a talented new face slated to play a supporting role. The lead role however has not yet been selected yet. Jones and his fellow filmmakers are very enthusiastic about bringing their picture to life but they need help. That’s why they launched a Kickstarter campaign.
The goal of this project is $96,000 by August 2, 2015 and the funds will go toward production expenses such as equipment, cast, crew, permits and other essentials.
To help bring this quirky comedy to life, please visit the Kickstarter campaign or click here. Perks will be delivered between August 2015 and December 2016.
Please keep in mind this is an all-or-nothing deal, which means if the campaign does not reach the funding goal then the project cannot move forward. This means that any amount pledged matters and this is a great opportunity to become a part of an extraordinary project! Help “The Away Team” reach it’s goal by sharing this on Facebook, Twitter, and other social networks. The more people who know about this campaign, the greater the chances of success.
