A few months ago, word got out that there was a Panic! at the Disco musical in the works, and no, the musical was not endorsed by the band at all, but still it piqued fans’ interest.
Now it seems, that another group of fans are thinking about turning another band’s music int a potential musical. This time, the band would be Fall Out Boy.
The musical which has been titled, Hand Of God, and currently, those fans are looking to raise money through go to crowdsourcing site, IndieGoGo to somehow make their goal of $800 for this project.
The summary of the project can be read below or you can visit the IndieGoGo page for more information about it.
“Allison joins a group of dark, subculture junkies headed by playgirl Jamie when she returns to college after a year in Americorps. Her world gets darker and darker as she learns that there is more to living on the fringes than sad poems. A Fall Out Boy musical filled with drugs, lying, and emotional turmoil. Fun for the whole family.”
We’re a group of teenagers about to embark on our first full-length film project: a jukebox musical set to the music of Fall Out Boy. We’ve got a cast, a crew, and a screenplay, but we don’t have any budget at all. So we’ve come to the internet in the hopes that you’ll be as excited about getting this movie made as we are!
What We Need & What You Get
Whatever amount we get, the budget will be divided something like this:
- 46% Lighting/Set Design
- 36% Sound Equipment
- 18% Camera Accessories
The current budget accounts for necessities only. If we go over our needed amount, we’ll get a higher quality microphone, better sets, and maybe a fog machine. Everyone on the crew is volunteering their time, so none of the money will end up in anyone’s pocket.
Without the help of people like you, this film won’t get made. We have a group of excited, hard-working crew members. We just need the money to do what we love and give you the best quality product we can!
Other Ways You Can Help
If you can’t donate, you can help us spread the word about the film! Share the link to the website, tell your friends about it, or even make flyers, if you’re really excited! Just help us spread the word. We’re relying on word-of-mouth to build up hype, so any assistance there is appreciated.”
