Help Make this Movie: “Because of Sam”
Let’s be honest, there are A LOT of movies being produced because certain people have a pipeline to Hollywood, not because they are necessarily good movies.
I’m Renee Warmack of Renee Warmack Productions, LLC, an independent filmmaker in Tampa who believes that Sam Piazza’s story is deserving of the big screen AND knows it will change lives. Sam does this every day!
I believe in Sam and his story so strongly that I’ve poured my own money, time and favors from production colleagues into the project to get it to this point.
Please help me level the playing field and support the VISION/Goals for Because of Sam:
- Raise money to produce and promote the short documentary film about Sam Piazza,
- Use the funds and the notoriety from the successful documentary to write a script for a big feature film (ala Blind Side, Where Hope Grows and Rudy),
- Get the attention of caring, big-name stars, organizations and individuals to financially support and star in the feature film,
- Get the feature film in theaters, tv, video on demand, etc.,
- Inspire people and change the world!
Here are just some of the milestones I’ve accomplished so far:
- Created this movie website,
- Created Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Youtube,
- Shot with various cameras (some footage is 10 years old!), edited and produced a rough demo reel to use to promote the fundraising effort,
- Collected pictures and video to use as “B roll” for the demo reel and movie,
- Created a limited liability company at Because of Sam the Movie, LLC and opened a dedicated bank account for appropriate bookkeeping,
- Reached out to major companies, stars and organizations to get support for the project. I’ve gotten great responses and am waiting to hear back from several.
