Kickstarter Alert: Walk-Ons!


I'm not sure I have heard of a more interesting idea than mixing John Hughes with Paintball but that is just what the folks behind Walk-Ons are aiming for.

I'm glad to help promote what sounds to be a fun project that with your help can get off the ground with the most possible chance at success.

Read on for the full press release and please, if you like the idea (and how could you not), toss them a few bucks or share it with your friends.  Head over to Kickstarter for more info!  The campaign ends on January 10, 2014.

Oh and keep an eye out for the next episode of SHOW where we'll welcome back Ryan Stockstad, producer for Walk-Ons, to discuss this new venture and plenty of other fun stuff.



FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Paintball Movie “Walk-Ons” Is Funding Now on Kickstarter.

North Hollywood, California (November 29, 2013) – Writer/director Andrew Kadikian has partnered with producer Ryan Stockstad to make a teen romantic comedy set in the world of competitive paintball. The two filmmakers have launched a campaign on the crowd-funding site Kickstarter to raise $5,000 of the project's budget.

“The paintballing sport is not represented very often in film. We're hoping that this movie will change that a little bit. We're hoping that this is the kind of movie that if you play paintball, you'll like what we've created”, said Ryan Stockstad, founder of Crowned Prince Productions.

Writer/director Andrew Kadikian adds, “I'm kind of drawing my inspiration for this from my love of John Hughes movies and teen comedies of the 80s... And at the same time, my love for paintball and playing paintball and watching professional paintball.”

Kadikian is an avid paintball player who regularly documents the sport with a helmet-mounted camera. Using his Rogue Division production company's partnered YouTube channel, he then shares the footage with over 7,000 subscribers.

Walk-Ons represents Andrew Kadikian's student thesis film as he prepares to graduate from Art Institute California – Hollywood. It will be his ninth directed project in three years, following the 48 Hour Film Project “Black Ribbon”, his award-winning student portfolio film “In the Way”, and the eight-part YouTube miniseries “Necessary Measures”.

The Walk-Ons Kickstarter campaign will run now through January 10th, 2014. For more information, please visit http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/hollywoodpsychic/walk-ons-a-paintball-movie.
