Film Team Launches Kickstarter Campaign to Modernize Macbeth


Savannah, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/18/2014 -- What happens when a deranged stage understudy becomes so obsessed with playing the lead role of Shakespeare's Macbeth that a single bad review pushes him over the edge, and he sets out to win the role at any cost? Filmmakers in Georgia think they have the answers and want to show how, in a variety of spectacular ways. And they've launched an incredible Kickstarter campaign to make it happen.

In order to produce the film, they require a budget of six thousand dollars, which will be allocated into specific aspects of the film. These include equipment, production design, props, costumes, location costs, transportation, and food for all actors and crew involved when shooting.

In the end, Mike does achieve his dream of becoming Macbeth. Ironically he does it in more ways then he expects because in this modern, dark comedy, adaptation of Macbeth, the understudy kills the lead actors to play the coveted lead role.

Investors helping fund the I Am Macbeth Film Project campaign will be eligible for perks such as personal thank you emails, digital film downloads, DVD film copies with behind the scenes footage, posters, signed headshots, updates from film characters, T-shirts, film credit, movie props, storyboards, and much, much more.

The I Am Macbeth Film team understands not everyone may be able to give money to help the I Am Macbeth Film Project, so they ask that those who cannot give monetarily help by spreading the word about the I Am Macbeth Film Project online through social media such as Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr or record a video challenge for Vine, Facebook or Instagram to invite friends to give to or share this Kickstarter fundraiser. Include #IAMMACBETH in all posts.
