Late Lunch is a comedy horror short film. It's about a husband who stumbles across the perfect punishment after his wife gives his most prized possession to charity in this dastardly fable where nobody leaves hungry.

Late Lunch started as a story I wrote for my dad, Charlie Sloin, to star. I figured a story about a guy that feeds his wife to the homeless was the perfect vehicle for this rubber-faced lunatic whose parents never let him pursue acting. At the same time, I another short I wrote, Smash the

Kitty, was showing up on the festival circuit. The comedy horror feature I wrote was being

optioned by a production company who was looking at a string of bad directors and reality stars for the project. Luckily, we were able to pull the script free> It was then my partner, Ben Padua, and I started Hedley Productions. Late Lunch is our first project with Hedley.

We shot Late Lunch on a shoestring budget, bolstered by a string of good luck and big favors. We had an amazingly creepy old house, a hilarious cast who knew how to play off each other, and a brilliant crew who worked for hours on end.

Now the film is finished shooting and in post-production, readying for the festival circuit so it

can get the attention we think it deserves and springboard our other projects—all waiting in the wings.

Our immediate goal? To raise capital to pay for Late Lunch post production, showings, and music rights.

Help us make it happen for Late Lunch. We need perk for your contribution.

  • Just want to thank you for your materials and help over the past year. I could not have raised the $1.5 million or made this film without the materials you provided -- and for $99? The bargain of my career!

  • I'm now sending out my completed business plan/film proposal document to potential investors and the one comment I'm getting back almost immediately is that it's so well laid out and professional. Believe me, first impressions really do count.

  • This is perfect! I have potential investors but I had no idea how to prepare a professional investment package to present to them. (I'm an artiste', not a business person. :) ) The information is clear and easy to understand, and Melissa is very prompt in answering emails.

  • When I came across the Business Plan Tools and the Finance Guide, I felt like I could stop searching for the pot of gold...I’d found it. In one place, with clear, easy to follow materials and spreadsheets, my questions were answered.

  • Hi Melissa! I purchased Package #3 a couple of days ago, and I feel like I'm taking a crash course in film financing. So far, what I've read and learned has been invaluable. Thank you!

  • I've made short films before, but this is my first feature, and the first film I've tried raising money for. This template, actually the whole package, has been invaluable and well worth the money I spent on it. So much information is packed into what I got that I'm almost dizzy from it all.
