Effective today Kickstarter.com has a new project for the purpose of raising production funds for a family values-based film, “Key West: The Conch Republic.” As the title hints, the movie takes place in Key West in the early 1980s and is based on actual events when Key West, for a brief period of time, seceded from the United States. During this secession, a visiting pastor and his family go to Key West, and their youngest daughter, Natalie, and her mischievous friend, Angel, a white pelican, touch the lives of everyone there.

The story was inspired by Psalms 91 and reflects the idea that the Lord provides refuge and protects those who believe in Him. The script is ready and promises to make viewers laugh and cry while demonstrating Christian values in the actions of its characters.To_life

The film’s producers hope to raise $4M dollars during the 60-day Kickstarter funding window. Monies raised through Kickstarter will be used to fund the production costs of the movie, including hiring a director and actors; the production of graphics, original music, any special effects; film crews, sound design, legal fees, marketing, travel costs for everyone involved, and all other elements of pre- and post-production.

The Kickstarter project runs through June 20, 2015 at 1:29 pm Eastern Time. If the goal isn’t met by the end of the run, then no funds change hands. Those interested in supporting the project should visit Kickstarter to learn more.
