The Handyman Independent Film Pitch The Handyman David LeMoyne as The Handyman The Handyman at Work

From Jay Johnson, the award-winning Director of Will Work For Food, comes the new feature film The Handyman. Starring David LeMoyne, this film is inspired by the horrifying true story of alleged Cleveland serial killer Anthony Sowell. The Handyman is a fictional story that explores how a man could kill eleven women without being noticed in the middle of a big city neighborhood.

Didn't the neighbors see anything, or were they afraid to get involved? How come the police didn't follow up on so many rape and ?missing persons cases? Was that horrible smell coming from the sausage shop next door??

To be shot in stunning HD, The Handyman paints an eerie picture of a lone main living a quiet life while methodically killing and hiding the bodies of local troubled women, in a city that seems to turn a blind eye.

The Handyman feature film will be an expansion of the character study done in Jay's short film by the same name. After watching the short, one viewer commented, "At first I thought, I don't really want to watch or support a film about such an atrocious crime/criminal. It seems like sensationalism? As I watched, I was unable to take my eyes off this movie, I felt differently. This is a vitally important story to tell."

  • 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!

    Emily
  • 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.
