Grammy nominated director, K.C. Amos, is partnering with his dad, TV/FILM star, John Amos, in launching an official kickstarter fundraising campaign where the public now has the opportunity to join them in creating the official production budget for their upcoming NFL feature, The Turk.
“The Turk”, an original feature, in the making is written by John Amos. The Turk tells the story of the glory of the limelight with a glimpse into the life of one of the top NFL stars who after rising to the top of fame and fortune suddenly faces his fears of losing everything as a result of meeting a force beyond his own control.
“We decided we wanted to open up the creative process by allowing the public to join us in the creation of this NFL Thriller through being allowed to create the film budget reality tv style through direct access to the fund. It’s great because it shows that people from all walks of life can come together to make a film happen”,says KC Amos, Director for the Turk.
