SYNOPSIS: Aaron, Vinny and Cooper are dead broke and ready to give up on their pursuit of becoming big shot filmmakers. Desperate to keep the dream alive, they turn to crowdfunding for their first feature film and raise $75,000 dollars. However, they are overtaken by greed and instead blow the money on frivolous luxuries. Now they must face the consequences, including some shady acquaintances interested in their fortune, and an onslaught of angry donors who have been deceived.
"In 2014, three Chicago-based filmmakers raised close to $78,000 on Indiegogo to fund their first feature film. The sketch comedy artists known as FND Films had a popular YouTube channel and collected the cash quickly using a goofy plea video. No details were revealed about the promised film aside from the title: It's All Good." -Esquire.com
With the money in the bank -- the FND team went silent for two years, until an apology video surfaced (garnering 94k+ views), explaining the film would not be made. Angry fans grew in numbers, stories surfaced (fooling their local FOX News channel) and the stunt was in full swing. The truth of the matter? FND was making a film ... about not making a film. A story on Esquire.com finally released the hoax, and the official trailer, which has been viewed 450k+ times in just over one week.
