Lynchburg Film Gaining Support


Lynchburg, VA - A Lynchburg man is using his Kickstarter campaign to finish a movie he made in Lynchburg. Joel Guelzo wrote and directed the film, "Norman". It's a feature-length sci-fi film about a time traveler. He and a group of friends started filming nearly two years ago.

With 98% of filming done, Joel knew he was going to need help financially to get the film completed. He started a kickstarter page this week.That's a website that asks for donations to different start up projects. His goal was $7,000 and within 34 hours he had reached his goal.

"It blew my mind I am extremely humbled by the people that saw it and said 'oh that looks cool, I totally want to watch that.' So I'm just excited," said Guelzo.

The website will be open for 30 days for donations. Guelzo says any money made will enhance the making of the film and also help to get it in theaters. He hopes to have the film completed by the end of the year.
