About the Campaign.

WHAT IS THIS?
'Nuts: The Best Damn Fans In The Land' will be a feature documentary about Buckeye Nation that gives people a behind-the-scenes look at the most interesting fans in the world.

I originally wanted the documentary to follow the entire 2013 football season from the fans' POV, but this has proven to be too costly and out-of-reach at the moment. Instead the storyline of the movie will follow me on my search for the most passionate and unique Buckeye fans. I will weave together the fans' stories to tell the definitive story of Buckeye Nation.

If this movie is successful then hopefully I can follow it up with a sequel that follows the entire season like I originally planned.

WHO AM I?
I’m Mike. I’ve been making no-budget movies since 2001. I've spent the last 11 years honing the art of DIY filmmaking by creating over 100 films/videos of various lengths and now, with this project, I'm attempting to expand into producing more ambitious projects.

Ohio State was the only college I applied to b/c I grew up in Ohio and wanted to follow in the footsteps of my Grandpa and Great Grandpa by graduating from there. I graduated from OSU in 2004 and have been preparing/waiting to make this movie since the Buckeyes won the 2002 national title.


WHAT IS MY GOAL?
I want to make this documentary The Best Damn Sports Fan Documentary In The Land. As far as I know, this documentary is the FIRST of its kind. There have been many documentaries made about the players, coaches, and schools, but none dedicated solely to the fans. I believe it is time to give Buckeye Nation the spotlight it deserves in a creative, intelligent, and entertaining way. I want this to be something all Buckeye fans can be proud of. Buckeye Nation is diverse and unique and I want the movie to reflect this.

HOW WILL THE MONEY BE SPENT?
I will use the money to produce/shoot/edit this movie as a one-man-band. $4500 is the absolute minimum I need to make this happen. The more $ I can raise the better the movie will be b/c it will allow me to be more ambitious and do things to make it better such as hire a small crew.

The money will be used for:
• new equipment
• travel expenses
• website design
• reward fulfillment

***If I do not reach the funding goal, then you will be refunded your money. However, it is okay to exceed the funding goal.
