Panhandler was funded independently by Writer/Director Kevin Horn, and partially via crowd sourcing. An IndieGoGo page was setup two months before production began with a goal of $5,000. Just over $2,000 was contributed, and the rest of the budget ($10,000) came from Kevin Horn who had been saving up funds since he got the idea for the film.


About Panhandler


Ollie is not having a good night. His ex-girlfriend's band is having a show and Ollie subjects himself to song after song dealing with their breakup. He steps outside for some air and encounters Jim, a middle aged man Ollie assumes is a panhandler looking for money. After Jim assures Ollie he's only trying to find his misplaced car, the two strike up a conversation and discover they share similar interests as both are writers. Jim tells Ollie he's only pretending to be a homeless man in order to write about his experience, though Ollie remains skeptical. As the night progresses Ollie learns more about Jim and himself, possibly finding the inspiration for a great story to write and to get over his broken heart.
