    "Play Date" is at the Home Stretch!




    We are happy to announce that we're nearing completion of our film! At the moment, we are hard at work composing the music, finalizing the sound mix and preparing for the color correction. The film is slated to be completely finished by mid-February.

    We have begun the process of submitting to film festivals and will be scheduling a screening for our wonderful contributors...YOU! So look for a special screening invitation soon!

    With excitement,
    Paige, Terry and the "Play Date" Team


  • MAKAZAN FILMS September 15, 2014

    Principal photography of "Play Date" was
    completed at the end of July and we are now in the editing process.




    We shot on four of the hottest days of the year. The ambitious shooting
    schedule (44 scenes in a 15 minute movie) left very little room for error.
    Everyone had to work together and work quickly. It was a tough shoot...we didn't get much sleep (notice the matching set of luggage under my eyes!) but somehow we rose to the challenge and got it done!



    The footage looks amazing thanks to the talented cast and crew. We have completed a rough cut and we're planning
    to shoot some additional 'pick-up' scenes in early October.



    Stay tuned for more updates as the film nears the finish line. Here
    are some behind-the-scenes photos for your voyeuristic pleasure.



    We will keep you posted about our continued progress!

    Big hugs,


    Paige, Terry and the Cast & Crew of "Play Date"



    P.S. Because of your contribution, we were able to donate
    a total of $943 to OPCC to help homeless individuals. A truly gratifying accomplishment!

    When life gives kids lemons, they donate to Play Date



    Last week my girls, their cousins and some of the neighborhood kids devised a mobile lemonade stand and sold lemonade door to door to raise money for my film, "Play Date". They were bursting with pride when they presented heir proceeds to me. They raised $25 and that was matched by my sister-in-law for a total of $50. That's a lot of cups of lemonade!

    For me, that was the greatest moment of the campaign and whether we are successful or not, I feel like I have already won:)



    We still have 25% to go and 4 days left. I'm completely floored by the generosity of so many people...some who don't even know me! And others who keep showing up at the 'pay it forward' events, and fundraising events, who without question give their support to this project and to my vision.

    Thank you all for your amazing generousity.  If there is anyone you think may want to get on board and join us to create this film and raise awareness about homelessness, please share this message with them...only 4 days to go!

    With gratitude,

    Paige

    "Play Date" is almost 70% funded!

    There is ONE WEEK LEFT in our fundraising campaign!  Thank you for your support of our film and of
    OPCC. Together we can make a difference in the lives of others.


    This week our Writer/Director Paige Morrow Kimball, Cast Member Terry Walters and Producer Kristina Kondrath participated in our 2nd 'Pay It Forward' Event. We helped make sandwiches and pack lunches at Feed the Hungry at Loyola Marymount University. The lunches were delivered to OPCC and it was truly a rewarding experience to come together and help those in need.


    Also this week, "Play Date" was featured in FORBES Magazine in an article about Fund Dreamer, the new crowd funding site that helps fund projects by women. "Play Date" is thrilled to be the very first film project on Fund Dreamer's newly launched site!  Read the full article here.


    Thank you to everyone who came to our Fundraising event at CPK on Wednesday...we raised $300 and a good time was had by all!


    We have entered our final fundraising week!  We are working hard to reach our goal to fund our production and our contribution to OPCC. Please help us get there by spreading the word to your friends!


    You can follow Writer/Director Paige Morrow Kimball on Twitter: www.twitter.com/paigekimball or find updates on our Facebook page. (Insert link)

    Thank you again for your contribution and support!  We truly appreciate your partnering with us and OPCC to help empower individuals to rebuild their lives.

    A Note From Our Writer/Director, An Angel Donor, A Dinner Date and A Goal


    A Note From Paige, Writer and Director of Play Date
    On
    behalf of the amazing production team, I want to thank every one of you
    for joining our Play Date and contributing to our campaign.  You're not
    only supporting  the creation of this short film, but lending a helping
    hand to the wonderful people at OPCC (Ocean Park Community Center) in Santa Monica.  

    I'm
    so inspired! I have met so many amazing people. People like Ruby, a
    homeless woman who lives on the streets of the Palisades. I met with
    Ruby on Tuesday at
    Starbucks on Sunset  and she was so helpful with some of the research
    on the film. I shared with her that I was struggling to find the right
    ending, and she threw out some ideas and thoughts based on her own
    experiences. She really touched me and I'm so grateful to her for
    sharing her life with me the way she did. (The new draft brought a friend of mine to tears by the way..so I think I've cracked the mystery.)   

    This
    week, Terry Walters and I met with a few potential young actresses for
    the role of 7 year old Emma. Each young actress blew us away with their
    amazing ability to be themselves. (The best kind of acting there is).

    I
    look forward to another great week of inspiration, giving back and
    being on this incredible ride. I'm so grateful to all of you.

    A Matching Angel Donor:

    A generous donor has pledged to match all  funds donated THIS WEEKEND from 5pm Friday evening to 5pm Sunday
    night. If you're thinking of donating, this would be a great time to do
    it as this DOUBLES YOUR DONATION DOLLARS!  Please share this amazing
    act of kindness and help us get funded to help empower individuals
    through our film AND OPCC.


    A Dinner Date:
    Los Angeles Locals: You don't have to cook next Wednesday!  You're Invited To A Play Date at: 
    California Pizza Kitchen in Marina Del Rey on Wednesday June 25th 2014 - 11am - 10pm

    If you missed our event at the Counter this week, just eat or join us at California Pizza Kitchen in Marina Del Rey on June 25 from (We'll be there at 5:30pm until close! 20% of bills mentioning "Play Date" will be donated by CPK to our Fund Dreamer Campaign! 


    It's as simple as that, we'd love to have you!  Bring the attached flyer with you! Please share this event with your friends and family and help us make a difference.



    A Goal:

    Again,
    thank you so much for contributing!  It's with your help that Play Date
    is almost 50% funded with 16 days left and many more announcements to
    follow.  I invite you to join us in doing a good deed such as supporting a local shelter, donating non perishables to a cause of your choice or simply continue to share our Play Date with your circle.


    Thank you so much for your continued support, together we can change our world!
    All the best, 
    #PlayDateFilm Production Team
