Here’s a synopsis of the winning project:
“We Grew Up Here” follows Liam, a musician from a tiny Kansas town, who moves to Chicago to escape the decaying town and a failed relationship. He lingers on the memories of his past with his ex-girlfriend and musical partner Lauren.
When Liam’s last connection to Lauren disappears, he discovers that both Lauren and his hometown seem to have vanished. He packs his bags and heads back to Kansas to find them.
Liam and Lauren are played by Eric Michaels and Kate Schell of the phenomenal band, Paper Thick Walls. Their music will be heavily featured throughout the movie.
And look at its absolutely adorable Kickstarter video:
