Home, James

The officail deadCENTER Film Festival trailer is here.


Set in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the story follows James, an aspiring local photographer whose recent rejection from a major gallery has left him questioning his talent. While working his unfulfilling day job, he falls for Cooper, a hard drinking Tulsa socialite. James and Cooper are quickly consumed by a whirlwind romance that at first inspires and instills confidence in James but ultimately threatens to derail him. In the end they both must decide whether to pursue their dreams or each other, knowing that it won’t be easy either way.

 In the fall of 2007 Julie Gearheard and Jonathan Rossetti began writing the script for Home, James.  After countless drafts and several readings we decided to run a Kickstarter campaign to raise the money to shoot our film.  With a small crew and even smaller budget we drove from Los Angeles to Tulsa to shoot a fundraising trailer for a movie that didn’t yet exist.  With no color-correction, sound mixing, or professional editing and numerous hours of unpaid labor from friends, we put together our “trailer”.  On January 23rd, 2012 we launched our Kickstarter fundraiser with that video.  

On March 2nd we reached our goal of $50,000 and started getting to work on making our first indie feature.  Thanks to your donations ,we are well on our way to bringing Home, James to a theater near you.  We started principal photography on September 27th in Tulsa, Oklahoma and wrapped filming on October 23rd in Los Angeles.  We are now submitting to festivals and seeking distribution.
