AUSTIN, Texas - March 7, 2020 - PRLog -- Michael Charron, is running a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to raise funds for the project Leverage: An Action Comedy. Leverage tells the story of Jade Betts, the most badass of Russian assassins, who gives up the life because she's found something more important to her than killing. Her former employers take that thing from her to try to 'leverage' her back into the life but she isn't going to take it lying down, she's ready to fight back. She's a strong, ass-kicking woman surrounded by a cast of weird and fun characters.

"I really want to find a way to marry cool action with fun comedy and not the usual slapstick/parody type of comedy that comes when you mix it with action. There are going to be a few funny fight moments but the majority of the comedy will come from outside the fights. it's not all frying pans and stepping on rakes here." says Michael. He then added, "I love and make comedies. But I love to mix them with different things. I made a comedy about gentrification, and one about a comedian with a puppet that sorta twists into a comedic thriller... and I wanted to do something different next. I was thinking about how much I loved action films and wanted to really marry those loves into something fun."

Michael has been making films for nearly 20 years, but in the last 4 years film making has become a focus in his life. In 2016 he made a short film called "Here Comes the Neighborhood", (https://roguealchemypictures.com/here-comes-the-neighborh...) a comedy about gentrification that really captured the zeitgeist, took

him around the country, and won a ton of awards. He followed up with "Random Knowledge", (https://roguealchemypictures.com/randomknowledge/) his love letter to pub trivia, which is currently wrapping up its award-filled festival run. In 2019 they completed "You're the Puppet" (https://roguealchemypictures.com/yourethepuppet/), the puppet comedy/thriller that is just starting to rack up the festival count.

They have a solid track record so far but they're being a little more ambitious with this film and taking it somewhere new for them.  Your help is going to allow them to do something funny, something with really cool action... and something that ends up being really ridiculous.

With just 6 days left in this campaign, your support is needed to raise funds to make this a campaign a successful one. Please consider getting involved, at whatever level you can, and help "Leverage: An Action Comedy (https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/leverage-an-action-comedy--3%23/)" get funded!
