Kickstarter Spotlight: ‘Mack Luster’ Feature Film
  |  @   |  

Are you a fan of the ’80s? Of course you are! So much awesome in a single decade cannot be ignored. And while we are seeing all sorts of revivals of those glorious days, one thing is missing…the quintessential ’80s action movie.

Luckily, that’s where Mack Luster comes in. It’s being created not as a parody but as an homage to those wonderful movies we all loved. Sounds great, doesn’t it? And it will be, or so we hope. That’s where you come in! You can help bring this film to life! Hell, you can even be IN the movie, if you so choose. That piqued your interest, didn’t it?

Continue reading for more information, and to see the Kickstarter video.

As I sit here typing away and listening to some old Van Halen, I’m reminded that the ’80s were a simpler time. A time where you made your mark on society through actions and not online. That’s what Mack Luster is all about, action over words. He’s a man of deeds and if you saw the film Visioneers (starring Zach Galifanakis) then you’ve already seen the character in action.

This time, though, the film is about Mack (played by Ryan McCann) saving us from ourselves because CHAYOS is turning everyone into evil versions of themselves. Girl Scouts are poisoning people through their delicious Thin Mint cookies, the elderly are attacking fraternity houses, and so on and so forth. How could you not want to fund this film?

Here’s what Director Jared Drake has to say about the movie:

“…the film is set in a skewed ’80s reality of present day with heroes are larger than life, where good is good, evil is evil, and the bad guy doesn’t need to learn a lesson but instead just get his ass-kicked. In the purest sense of the word awesome, Mack Luster is the most awesome movie you’ll ever see. It is a passion project for us that we’ve been developing for years and are finally ready to blow it out and take the next step.”

Of course, no one expects us to throw money at something without getting a little something in return. What are we, philanthropists? If you want to be a part but can’t donate much, the two dollar level gets your name in the credits. Yep, you read that correctly, two bucks. For twelve, you can download the movie after it’s done…how cool is that? Forty dollars gets you a hi-def download, the script, updates, your name in the film, and some bad ass cast/crew sunglasses! And the rewards just keep on going from there. Whether you want to be in the film or have the crew send you a live chicken in the mail, it’s your call. Make sure to check out the full list of rewards on the campaign page.

This is sure to be an entertaining movie. Not just because of the content but the fact that these guys are giving it everything they’ve got to get it produced. From emptying their own bank accounts to imposing on foreign relatives while filming, these guys are definitely in it for the long haul. I hope you go check out their Kickstarter page, the link is right here.

Lots of rewards and plenty of awesomeness. If you can’t give a lot, then give what you can. Remember, it only takes two dollars to get your name in the rolling credits.
