“Two Cranes”

Tweetable Logline:
A young man’s long quest to get revenge against an enact vigilante
justice on a corrupt real estate mogul who destroyed his family.

Elevator Pitch:
Two Cranes is a revenge heist film co-starring Michael Madsen (of Reservoir Dogs and Kill Bill). It follows a young man’s long quest to get revenge against an enact
vigilante justice on a corrupt real estate mogul who destroyed his
family. The film has been shot an now we’re trying to raise the funds we need to complete the post process. We believe in this film and think those who watch it will also have a blast.

Production Team:

Writer/Director: Bart Vandever
Starring: Michael Madsen and Robert Romanus (of Fast Times at Ridgemont High)

About the Production: 
I’ve been making film since I was in junior high. I went to film school
and this was the first script that I felt strongly enough to pursue
making into a film. When I wrote Michael Madsen’s barbecue sauce company
with the pitch and they responded with interest I felt I had to jump at
the chance to work with the legendary actor. I wanted to tell a story
that was fun, exciting, with a blend of humor and real world commentary.
I wanted to showcase how much we could do with simple, affordable
cameras and equipment.
