Overview

Synopsis

When Ecker Mills' old age catches up to him, he is forced by his loving granddaughter Maggie to hire some extra hands on his Vineyard. This comes in the form of Dalton and Ned -- two small time crooks who “through the grapevine” are told of Ecker’s fortune, supposedly hidden somewhere on the estate. Posing as distant relatives, the two attempt to win over the family and find their precious loot. But things complicate when they’re challenged by Ecker’s rivals, the pompous Klapperstein brothers. With Dalton beginning to fall for his “cousin” Maggie, and a documentary film crew showing up on Ecker’s door step, this simple heist turns into sour grapes.

Well I've got one film under my belt, and I'm exactly what you'd expect me to be as someone who managed to sell their film to premium broadcast television, in which I co-wrote, co-produced, and starred in:

Unemployed, poor, and an absolute nobody.

It was the hardest thing I've ever done in my life, and I can't wait to do it again.

After having watched all your missions and understanding better where you guys were coming from not having any actual footage I wanted to say that I like your idea and think it would make a fun light-hearted thriller. Good luck getting your movie made.

If the trailer has intentional sound issues, then to be honest it was a waste of time for that trailer. The conversation looked intense and might have been an interesting plot but I couldnt hear it. (FYI its not my speakers since the Cinecoup head and tail sound was there.)

A well done teaser for a movie yet to be made. I think this competition is a bit silly as you have movies that are already made competing against "ideas for movies" that obviously will not have good clips to make a trailer from. It is an uneven playing field from the start.

Confused. I was expecting a real something that I could get into. Maybe its better as just a project for you and your friends ... because having watched this and a couple of your mission videos it seems like you dont care about bringing in a new audience at all.

This is an assessment of the entire project up to Mission 4: At first, the meta-approach seemed clever (at least for the initial trailer). I kept thinking, "okay, they're going to start revealing more about the actual project" but no, it's just the two guys on the couch. No effort was even put into coming up with a poster - never mind two genuine alternative ones - which says something about their commitment. If you want people to invest $1 Million in your film, you should at least be putting in *some* effort and a demonstration of talent.

The trailer is funny, but isn't an actual trailer. It's just a few guys pitching a movie they'd like to make, without taking the steps to show us what it would actually be like.

Being truly low-budget filmmakers is tough- especially without a ton of industry connections. These are the kinds of original and clever videos I would have expected from more of the cinecoup competitors, instead, there are a ton of costly trailers for films that look like they are already done, and being presented as works in progress here. I am expecting to see great things from these guys. Keep me laughing and I'm with ya.

I feel like it's almost trying to be too clever in how the trailer is delivered. Maybe the film should be about the two guys pitching their movie idea?
It's hard to say "I like the idea." Without really getting a feel for what it'll look like in the end.
