My forever home

Filming summer 2024

About the Project

After becoming time-locked in his own home, a nerdy mathematician, along with his sister and crush, must thwart a crime committed by his future self to restore their present timeline.

It's Home Alone - with guns - and time travel!

We are gearing up to produce a script that we wrote last year. It's going to take an incredible amount of volunteers putting in countless hours of their time and dedication. We're moving forward with the plan to shoot it in the summer of 2024.  

The Impact of the film

At Movie-Mint, our mission goes beyond mere entertainment, although we do love to entertain. We craft films with the aim of touching people's hearts and sparking new perspectives on God and Christianity.

 

With "My Forever Home," our aspiration is that viewers will ponder how seemingly small choices in life can lead to more significant consequences down the road. We hope that after experiencing our film, individuals will take a moment to reflect on their own paths and consider positive changes. Our story also revolves around redemption, emphasizing that it's never too late to seek God's guidance. It showcases the belief that when we turn to Him in times of need, His help is always within reach.

What we need to make it

In total, we'll need $250,000 to produce the film. That amount is for all phases of making the film including prep, production, post-production and distribution. It seems like a crazy expensive amount, and it is. But with your help, we can get this done.

HOW TO CONTRIBUTE

To fund this film, we'll need many donations in the ranges of $100, $500, and $1,000. But we'll also need a few who are able to contribute $10,000, $50,000, or even $100,000! Please consider becoming part of what we're doing. It will be worth it.

walk my cow

John Martens, founder of Movie-Mint and a Writer/Producer on “My Forever Home,” has also written a children’s book. “Walk My Cow” is a wacky little story that children will read over and over again, but even adults will enjoy. In fact, no coffee table is complete without it!!

 

John wrote this book to help raise funds for our movie ventures here at Movie-Mint. If you have kids at home – or just need something cool to put on your coffee table for when visitors come over – you must buy this book. And tell your friends. You’ll be helping us make films including My Forever Home. And you’ll be changing the world.
