Actor/Director Perry King Seeks Kickstarter Funding for Indie Film The Divide Motion Picture.
Actor/Director Perry King Seeks Kickstarter Funding for Indie Film The Divide Motion Picture.

Veteran actor/director Perry King Tuesday announced the start of a campaign on Kickstarter.com to help find funding for his independent Western, “The Divide.”

King said he has been dreaming for years of filming a movie on his 500- acre cattle ranch in the Gold Rush country of El Dorado County in Northern California and now has the script to do it.

King said he is funding more than of the film’s cost, but is seeking $30,000, which will support pre-production for the film. Filming is scheduled to begin next summer.

“I know what it takes to get a movie produced in Hollywood,” King said. “I know what they want. I don’t want to make a Hollywood movie. I want to make my own movie, my way. I want to make a movie about the drama of ordinary life, people I know.”

Supporters will be eligible for an array of special rewards and, at certain giving levels, exclusive access to the making of “The Divide” and an invitation to join King and the cast and crew at the movie’s premiere.

More information about the project is available on its website, thedividemotionpicture.com.
