(Sharkparty) Jason Nash has launched a Kickstarter campaign for his second film FML: A Social Media Adventure. Nash has written and will be directing the movie which also be the first-ever Vine star feature film. We were sent these details:
The film will star Jason Nash and Brandon Calvillo, two of Vine's most followed social media stars, as well as a myriad of Viners all with followers well into the millions, including Brittany Furlan (8.8 million followers), Nicholas Megalis (4.7 million followers), and Marcus Johns (6 million followers) and over 35 additional Viners, with a total number of followers exceeding 40 Million. FML will be a feature film about two guys who embark on a cross-country road trip to boost their social media followings. Nash will be producing the film with L.A.-based production company, Fantail Entertainment.
Once again, Jason Nash is making history: this is the first time that this many Vine stars have joined forces on a project of this caliber, and it is the first feature-length narrative film starring Viners. His debut film, JASON NASH IS MARRIED marked the first evolution of a Comedy Central Studios web series onto the big screen. JNIM brought rave reviews and a huge dose of attention from the media, and featured such comedy favorites as Busy Philipps, Andy Richter, Patton Oswalt, Rob Corddry, Andy Daly, Casey Wilson, TJ Miller, Paul Scheer, Paul F. Tompkins, H. Jon Benjamin, Matt Walsh, Mary Lynn Rajskub and more.
FML will once again bring new media to the mainstream. The film will feature many of the same actors; Patton Oswalt, Busy Philipps (Freaks & Geeks, Cougar town), T.J. Miller (Silicon Valley), Andy Daly (Review), Paul Scheer (The League), Rob Corrdry (Children's Hospital, The Daily Show), and Ken Marino (Children's Hospital, Party Down) are among the list of actors who will be starring in FML: A SOCIAL MEDIA ADVENTURE.
The Kickstarter campaign launching today, Monday, March 30th, is inviting fans to join in the filmmaking process, giving them a voice and a chance to build FML alongside Jason and the whole production team. The campaign is offering rewards on the ground floor that range from a digital download of the completed film, the soundtrack, production diaries and t-shirts to exclusive opportunities including video chats with the stars in the film, video greetings from the stars, an Eddie Pepitone voicemail rant, a Vine class in L.A., a visit to the FML Set, as well as a Vine or Instagram takeover by one of the stars. This is just a taste of the rewards that will be available to those interested in taking part in the making of this film.
