Breakin’ – The Movie is a short film about the day in the life of a little boy that is forced to deal with domestic issues over a father and a mother’s dysfunctional relationship. It will highlight on the effect on families dealing with periods of time where functioning is impaired by stressful circumstances.
The main character is named Ali, a nine year old boy from Atlanta, Ga.
In early September, our Atlanta-based team will in film in Atlanta on location for ten days. Planning is already well under way, and we have begun casting auditions certain roles. In mid-July our core team will scout scene locations and hold casting auditions for the remaining roles. After filming in September, post-production will begin and continue throughout October and November so we can submit to festivals Winter 2013.
What have we done so far?
As soon as we raise the money we need, we will go right to work. So far we have:

- Scouted and found a great locations.
- Pre-shot some footage on the location to make sure it looks perfect.

What will we do next?
Once we have received the funding, we will:
- Finish casting (which we can only really do once we know when we can start filming)
- Secure our location
