Kickstart This


Tony Comstock, an award-winning filmmaker, has a new project. I’ll let him tell you what it’s all about.

“The Boi Meets Girl Meets the MPAA project will submit BRETT AND MELANIE to the Motion Picture Association of America ( and on the basis of the MPAA’s feedback, we will produce a multi-angle DVD showing the exact difference between the Unrated, NC-17, R and PG-13 rated version of the film.

“Monies raised will go to covering MPAA submission fees, re-editing costs, and DVD authoring.

“Videos of each rating version of the film will also be uploaded to popular video sharing sites, such as YouTube, Vimeo, Daily Motion, etc to see how various MPAA-rated versions are treated by the vagaries of Community Guidelines is TOS agreements.”

I’m in.
