Press Releases



CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA – February 2, 2011 - Filmmaker and President of Paladin Pictures, Inc., Kent C. Williamson, recently launched a tribe-funding opportunity to help raise needed production funds for the lacrosse film UN1TY. “We have traditional investors on this project, but we wanted to reach out to the community around us to help make this lacrosse film,” Williamson said. “By bringing people together to help fund the project through KickStarter, we not only get access to the production money we need, but people get excited about the project in the process.” 

The screenplay for UN1TY  has been described as The Blind Side meets Facing The Giants on the Lacrosse Field. Williamson hopes to have complete funding in place including both the crowd-sourcing funds and traditional investments   by May. If so, production on the film could begin as early as this summer. 

Williamson and his team are trying to raise the additional $70,000 for production of the film via the UN1TY KickStarter project. Tribe-funding or crowdsourcing of artistic projects is built around giving incentives to those who help launch the project and the film UN1TY is no different. Incentives include getting your name in the film’s credits, pre-release copies of the film, digital download packages, autographed screenplays, spending a day on the set, shaving the director’s head, and many more. UN1TY Co-Producer Leslie Wood helped choose the crowd-sourcing website to host the project. “What I like about KickStarter is that it’s all or nothing. We raise the complete seventy thousand or we don’t get a dime. That really protects the people that are trying to help us. They know that their credit cards will not be charged if we don’t reach our goal,” Wood added. The minimum pledge on the UN1TY Kickstarter page is $1. A low enough entry point that nearly anyone can help make this film a reality.
