-- Walkaway is a cinematic story where the audience embarks on a personal journey with Walter (a middle aged man) as he turns his back on everything in his life in an attempt to reconnect with his estranged daughter.
Walkaway Production chose the popular crowd funding web site Kickstarter.com to fund this project due to it’s reputation for helping productions like Walkaway find the funding they need to make a movie in today’s market. Kickstarter works by allowing individuals to donate money to the film and receive items of value like a DVD for that donation.
Walkaway is a very unique production since it will be distributed initially as an weekly web series available for free on the Internet and after the series completes it will be reformatted into a feature film. At that time you’ll be able to find Walkaway on DVD, Blu-ray, Netflix, iTunes, and other popular outlets.
The project is being produced by Chris Adler, a filmmaker in Sandy Utah. Chris was the writer and director of the award winning short film “Reco” which explored the relationship between a mother and the daughter she abandoned as a child in the late eighteen hundreds in Utah.
