We're Not Married - Post Production
After ten years, two couples find out their marriages were never legally binding and now must confront their troubled relationships and make a life-altering choice: cling to their vows or part ways and go on separate journeys.
In a tale of love, laughter, and legal twists, Rachel and Julian, along with high school sweethearts Claire and Rick, are married in a whimsical ceremony performed by the eccentric Rev. Berry. A decade later, a shocking revelation shatters their marital bliss – turns out, Rev. Berry wasn't licensed.
As the couples grapple with the reality of their legal status, what once felt straightforward now spirals into complexity, with tax evasion scandals and Rachel's legion of admirers which include the sexy, successful author, Hunter.
In the end, some find their way back to love, while others learn that the essence of lovers loving love transcends the bounds of matrimony.
There are four parts to making a movie. Pre-production, Production, Post-production, and Distribution. All of these phases are unique and come with their own set of costs. With your help and the Grace of God, we have made it through the first two phases. Now comes POST. This includes editing, sound design and effects, musical composition, VFX, and coloring. We have a movie but the footage is raw and we need ALL of these things to make it market ready and marketable. With your help, we can do it! WE CAN DO IT!
You want to get into the nitty gritty of production. One of our trucks stalled on the highway which cost us almost an entire day of shooting. AND the show “The Rookie” took over the entire block of our filming location on one day, which also cost us an ENTIRE day. Do you know what these setbacks look like? Feel like? And that was the first week!
Your contribution, which we are so grateful for, will move this film from ‘in the can’ to ‘on the screen’ for you and the world to see. Thank you, Thank You, THANK YOU!
