Solomon Dasko Short Film Launches Crowdfunding Campaign

Solomon Dasko Short Film Launches Crowdfunding Campaign

Eustress Entertainment and Bent Street Films have come together to produce the compelling short film Solomon Dasko. This short film is set to go into production, February 4th-9th in Washington, D.C.

The story follows the lead character, Solomon, a recovering drug abuser vehemently holding on to his dream to become a famous blues singer. When he meets a lonely, schizophrenic guitar teacher who “sees” something in him. A convenient friendship ensues as Solomon battles to stay clean and grab hold of his all consuming dream.

Solomon Dasko was birthed from French Onion Soup, an upcoming feature film written by Washington, D.C. based, award-winning screenwriter and filmmaker, Eulonda Kay Lea. Eulonda, who leads Eustress Entertainment, has partnered with Yaphet Jackman to direct this short film. Yaphet Jackman is an international 2nd year Master of Fine Arts student at Ohio University. Yaphet is also the president of Bent Street Films.

The film is a requirement for students pursuing the directing track and aids in creating a portfolio for young directors and cinematographers seeking careers in the film industry.  This collaborative project between Eulonda and Yaphet serves a two-fold initiative. It meets Yaphet’s scholastic requirement and will serve as the proof of concept for the French Onion Soup feature film.

The Solomon Dasko team is fervently working to raise the funds to meet the cost of production expenses including crew, meals, and the largest budget line items. A crowdfunding campaign has been established via GoFundMe at the link below. There are diverse donation levels listed, however contributors are encouraged to give at the level they are most comfortable with. The team embraces any and every amount enthusiastically. Contributors, as well as the public, can remain abreast of the Solomon Dasko film on Facebook or Twitter

Though the Beta testing is well in the past, we at Max It are always working to improve the site, keep the gears oiled, and all around tinker to improve the experience for both the indie filmmakers that submit content, as well as the indie film lovers that drop in for their daily fix.

Just like suspicious activity, we ask that if you see something wrong, have a suggestion, or would just like to tell us just what you like or dislike about the site, you let us know.

We've a lot of things still to add (No Peeking Behind The Curtain!), but we want to make sure what is current online is working without issues. To do this each day we'll add more articles, tweak a feature here, remove a feature there. Just to keep things moving along in the right direction.

To let us know of anything, just click on Contact in the Main Menu at the top and give us as detailed a description of the problem, or suggestion and we'll do our best to look to see if and how it can be fixed, or added!
