We love a good Kickstarter campaign, especially when it creates something we want to see made. Not too long ago Dan Via and Gerald McCulloch brought their play, Daddy to New York and LA. For those who couldn't make it to either coast we've got some good news as the pair are looking to take the play from stage to screen and are using Kickstarter to help raise the production funds. For someone who loves a good daddy tale in any media, I'm hoping the pair hit their mark and can create this funny and heartbreaking play into an equally funny and heartbreaking film.
Here's a quick plot synopsis:
Colin McCormack (Gerald McCullouch) thinks he has it all — a great job, a steady stream of hot younger men, and a best friend, Stew (Dan Via), whose devotion he takes for granted. But when a charming and mercurial intern sweeps him off his feet, Colin sees a chance for something more: A family of his own. What he discovers instead is a shattering truth that may cost Colin everything — and everyone — he holds dear.
Do you wish there were more daddy relationships shown on screen?
