Logline: Reincarnation in a small Texas town.
Brief Synopsis: Set in a small Texas town just before this new millennium, the story is a multi-generational, family drama that explores how the possibility of reincarnation can help three brothers make peace with their dying father, with the help of his 8-year-old grandson.
Longer Synopsis: A glimpse into the subtle, but intense possibilities of the human spirit, this metaphysical family drama encompasses the powerful themes of life, death and rebirth within the subtext of inner child healing, aging parents, sibling rivalry and the possibility of reincarnation. Old, unresolved issues spring forth when three grown brothers return to their small Texas home town to face their bitter father, who is slowly approaching death. A terrible tragedy buried forty years in the past has set in motion a chain of events which the present seems completely unable to change. Can an eight-year-old boy help change the direction of their future?
The story’s themes include; problematic familial relationships, inner child trauma and healing, meditation as a mechanism for realization and healing; reincarnation as a device and vehicle for both trauma and healing, and multi-generational familial love.
The screenplay of One Hand Clapping was originally conceived in the early 1990’s. Over the next 15 years it was optioned by three different production companies, but never went into production as funds were never secured by those entities. The option has since reverted back to the writer. The screenplay has gone through numerous drafts and polishes, and is now ready for production by our company, Way To Go Media.
During its development the screenplay has been professionally evaluated and critiqued by several well-respected and recognized analysts in the film industry. Here are some of their comments:
Robert Hawk, well-known independent film consultant
“…a well-written piece with excellent character exchanges and nice complexity…well drawn dysfunctional family…a lot going on…you really have something here…”
Darlene Rubin, script consultant for Truby’s Black Belt Writing Program
“…a touching essay on family relationships…provocative study of human nature… characters are interesting, sympathetic and diverse…opponent structure is excellent …several intriguing concepts at work here…”
Jeffrey Hardy, President, Film Profit, independent film consulting company
“…your script a surprise and a decided pleasure to read…very impressed with your story, your setup, your layout of characters…all work extremely well…”
Marino Colmano, President, Bravo Entertainment
“…a lot of heart…several great insights…I believe it should get made…”
Dorothy Rankin, script consultant, employed by several studios
“…very intriguing and interesting ideas…adventurous script which tackles big ideas on a very personal and human level…”
Merlin Miller, director-producer, “A Place to Grow” and “Jericho”
“…very well-written and thought-provoking…the treatment of the dysfunctional family seemed very believable…”
Since the project is purely story and character driven, with no expansive special effects, or wild and crazy car chases or explosions, or heavy violence and gore, or werewolves, zombies and vampires, how it is cast will be paramount in realizing its full potential.
Our intention is to spread a wide net to attract the very best talent possible for the budget set forth. We will work with a reputable casting company to make well-thought-out, careful and attentive casting choices. Up to this point we have received very favorable responses in our casting efforts, and anticipate being able to put together a cast that will fully flesh out the script and bring it alive for a highly expectant audience.
In the final analysis, most actors want to work with quality, sympathetic material that is compelling, meaningful, and relationship based, such as what the “One Hand Clapping” screenplay represents.
Casting updates will be forthcoming …
Jerry Alden Deal, Writer/Director/Producer
2011′s award-winning “Dreams Awake” was Jerry’s feature directorial debut, although he’s no neophyte to filmmaking. Over the past thirty years Jerry has been hired numerous times to develop and write screenplays for other production companies. During that same period several of his spec scripts were also optioned.
Jerry has also worked on other filmmakers’ projects, learning the nuts and bolts of production, working from production assistant to producer, as well as directing several shorts. In addition, he spent several years at Sony Pictures Entertainment, which gave him a film business education into how the film industry works at the studio level.
Invigorated by the possibilities of modern digital media, and the viewing public’s expanding interest in transformational themes, Jerry decided to set up a production company to develop his own projects. Thus, his 17th screenplay, “Dreams Awake” was born, which he also directed and produced.
When Jerry directs his screenplay “One Hand Clapping,” to be shot in the Austin, TX area in 2014, you could say that he is returning to his roots where he went to college and where he first got involved in indie filmmaking, and near where he grew up in San Antonio.

Jay Deal, Co-Producer
A problem solver by nature and a dreamer by design, Jay’s creative and technical talents lie across a myriad of multi-faceted disciplines. They include skill sets in business management, online marketing, graphic design, internet consulting and web development, website design, various programming languages and protocols, and database design and management, as well as the new innovative, story-forming anarchy of transmedia world creation.
Over the past twenty years Jay has worked in various capacities for several large companies, including USAA and AIG, as well as consulting with many others, such as Diamond Shamrock, 1stBuy.com and various outdoor television personalities, and managing his own businesses, OmniMex, an international export company, Dominion Quest, a web development company, Refacciones.com, an online wholesale export application, and Sites & Visions, a web design company. He not only built numerous web applications for these companies, but also created online communities and e-commerce sites for several of them.
Jay has always had the drive to be ahead of the game, no matter which one he is working at or playing. Throughout his life one could say that he was ‘the right person’ but just ‘a little too early.’ But that is now changing, as he is hitting the mark with the emerging marriage of creativity and technology in the narrative planning and implementation for new forms of media.
Jay works hard bringing order from chaos for Way To Go Media’s marketing efforts, and its new foray into this expanding world of transmedia storytelling, story-showing and story-forming. His varied expertise in these areas is a great asset to the company’s future growth.
The project is slated for production in the spring of 2014. It will be shot in HD on location in central Texas. Pre-production will be for 6 weeks, production for 5 weeks, a 2 week wrap, and post-production for about 3 months, totaling approximately 6 months. The project should be available for release by late 2014, or early 2015. We anticipate a PG-13 rated film.
Texas, and Austin in particular, has become a major film production center. Numerous publications have been lauding Texas as a top center of independent filmmaking for quite a while. And support services and film crews are now bountiful there. So, we will be hiring mostly local crews that operate in the Austin area.
The Texas Film Commission serves as a liaison between film producers and the state, helping insure that laws and regulations governing labor, property, tax, transportation, services and local permits are adhered to. The state of Texas is very filmmaker-friendly and goes out of its way to help smooth over any problems production companies may have in its efforts to film there. Film permits are not required in Texas, but some cities do have regulations that apply to film production activities. In addition, there are production and tax incentives in Texas we can take advantage of.
Pre-production: February 15 – March 31, 2014
Production: April 1 – May 5, 2014
Post Production: June 1 – August 31, 2014
Release: October 15, 2014
There are three funding plateaus we need to reach:
Funding Goal 1 – Production: $1,250,000 by February 1, 2014
Funding Goal 2 – Post Production: $ 250,000 by May 15, 2014
Funding Goal 3 – Marketing & Distribution: $ 500,000 by October 1, 2014
• Note: We will also have ‘skin in the game,’ as our production company will be contributing funds towards production. In addition, the principals in our company will not be receiving any fees for their work.
This is a general overview of the production budget (post-production not included):
|Screenplay & Director||$ 0|
|Production Staff & Office||$ 97,000|
|Art Department||$ 72,000|
|Set Operations||$ 53,000|
|Camera & Sound||$ 135,000|
|Wardrobe, Hair & Makeup||$ 55,000|
|Travel & Living||$ 50,000|
|Professional Fees||$ 62,000|
|Contingency – 10%||$ 114,000|
Note: These numbers may be subject to change.
Our marketing has actually already begun through social media. Currently the “One Hand Clapping” Facebook Page already has almost 20,000 fans. And that is a full seven months before we start production. We plan having at least 100,000 by the time we go into production. In addition, we will also build up the film’s Twitter Page, YouTube Channel, and Google+ Page to grow our audience and increase fan engagement as we get closer to production.
We are also using traditional media, as we have already hired a Public Relations firm in Austin TX to help build the ongoing awareness and progress of the production.
During pre-production we will begin increasing audience engagement several ways. As we crew up, scout locations, and cast actors, we will utilize our social media platforms for the audience to participate in the process.
During production we will create regular content to upload to our blogs, social media platforms, websites, and online media sources. The content will include production stills, behind the scenes video, and cast and crew interviews.
During post-production we will increase audience engagement and interaction by letting them vote on our ‘key art’ elements and posters, letting them comment on our trailer versions, and letting them suggest what film festivals we should submit to, thereby helping to grow an engaged fan base beyond the film’s release.
The film industry is currently undergoing numerous structural changes, especially in the distribution world. With digital technology, broadband Internet, online viewing programs, and social media platforms, the film audience’s viewing habits are rocking the traditional paradigms. Because of these changes, we realize we have to be nimble enough to have more than one distribution plan in place. At least a Plan A and a Plan B, and very importantly, a viable Plan C.
Plan A would entail a more traditional distribution plan, where the licensing rights for the film would be sold outright through the normal distribution channels, such as theatrical, VOD, cable, foreign, DVD, broadcast, online, etc. However, since those deals have become less desirable and harder to achieve for independent filmmakers, they may not be the best option, unless truly favorable agreements can be secured.
Plan B would entail us keeping and maintaining all the licensing rights ourselves, and controlling the marketing, promotion, and distribution of the finished film. That certainly has become more of an acceptable paradigm for indie producers today. However, there are still no guarantees this is the best way to proceed.
Possibly the best strategy may be a hybrid plan, which takes us to Plan C. This will involve us preparing the film as if a major distributor, or a series of niche or sub-distributors, will pick it up and offers favorable distribution agreements. But in addition, we will set aside time, energy, and funds to self-distribute the film ourselves. That is why so much time will be invested in our own marketing efforts, to prepare us for this possibility. Also, by keeping ownership of all the licensing rights, we could sell pieces of the rights off to sub-distributors in specific release windows, regions and markets, keeping the licensing rights we don’t get decent deals on. This allows us more freedom and flexibility in a rapidly changing marketplace.
For several years now the world has been experiencing a new type of transformation. Whether called ‘consciousness raising,’ ‘positive thinking,’ or ‘personal inner growth,’ with elements of the self-help, inspirational, and spiritual growth movements blended in, this “movement” has reshaped both the outer and inner landscape of our world. It is here. It is a known fact. And it continues to grow and expand in many avenues of our lives.
One of the most influential arenas experiencing this type of growth is in the media world; in music, in publishing, and in visual media. In the film world there is currently a movement afoot to add a new cinema genre or classification, which could be called Transformational Media. Some might call it Spiritual Cinema. Others might call it Conscious Content. However we may each choose to define it, the elements comprising this type of media are very similar. Buzzwords like ‘life changing,’ ‘inspirational,’ ‘empowering,’ ‘new awareness,’ or ‘enlightened living,’ all seem to be finding a place into this new paradigm of content creation.
Generally speaking this type of media has positive, inspiring, and uplifting stories that reveal and express insight and wisdom into our inner natures. Usually they contain universal, yet personal, themes and messages, which explore those inner qualities and values that consciously need nurturing. You could say that they are emotional, mental and spiritual nutrition for audiences hungry and thirsty for their vision, intent and originality.
If you believe all the latest negative filmmaking news it would appear that the current filmmaking paradigm is in dire straits. That could very well be, but these cycles come and go quite often. However, this is also probably a signal that filmmakers will have to adjust to what ‘their’ unique audience really wants. So it is more important than ever that indie filmmakers identify what their audience niche really is.
Transformational media is one type of niche that has a massive upside. For it is just one important element in a much larger, expansive, new consciousness movement serving people around the world. Meaning that his type of media not only has the potential to inspire, nurture, and transform our inner selves, but also to inspire, nurture, and transform the world. Since this is an area greatly underserved and misunderstood by the traditional studio system, it can open up wonderful opportunities for indie filmmakers, such as ourselves.

So, why aren’t we using Kickstarter or IndieGoGo or any other funding platform? We think those platforms are wonderful for indie filmmakers, and will continue to grow as strong, viable funding alternatives for the future of indie filmmaking.
However, at this particular time we feel that this was not the best avenue for our particular project. As indie filmmaker/entrepreneurs we feel having more control of the whole process over a longer sustained period works much better for us. Plus, all the committed funds would be directly available for use on the project, and not go towards other associated fees and costs.
We researched a number of Wordpress crowdfunding themes and settled on Fundify for this film project. A number of others have also used this platform to fund all types of enterprises, as well as films. We hope you find it easy to navigate and use. Let us know if you have any problems with it, since we are also on a learning curve with its institution.
If you have a question that wasn’t answered above, please email us directly.
It has been become more apparent that the traditional Hollywood system is broken. And we feel we know what a huge part of the solution is. You, the audience. You want films made you really want to see when you want to see them, and maybe even participate in. And certainly not the same old big studio fare; steroid eye-candied extravaganzas, tired formulaic storylines, stereotypical cardboard characters, and on and on.
We have presented to you above what our particular project is all about. It may or may not be your kind of film. If not, we hope you find another you can believe in and hopefully you can help that filmmaker out. If this is your cup of tea, then great, we welcome you as part of our community!
There are three main ways you can get involved. And yes, you can do just one of them, or even all of them (which is what we hope!), because we do need you to greenlight us.
Fan – Become a follower on our Facebook, Twitter and YouTube pages, and you may even want to sign up on our email list. You’re probably not quite ready to commit to a financial obligation, but you still like what we’re about. And maybe help us out by telling your friends, family and colleagues about us. Of course, somewhere down the line you might find a few extra bucks floating around, and figure, what the heck, why not.
Audience – You may or may not do the above, but there’s a real possibility you will check out the film once it’s released. And heck, you might even decide to tell everyone you know all about it.
Funder – You figure we’re worth helping us out with a few or more $$’s. And we luv ya’ for it! And then of course, you will tell everyone all about it too, right?
Extras for Funders:
Creative – This is something special for all our funders. During several different phases of this whole process, there will be opportunities for you to give us creative input into the film we are presenting to the world. Check the updates for more details.
Affiliate – This is something extra special for all our funders. You will automatically become one of our affiliates. Meaning, that if you have a blog, website, social media page, or any other online presence, you will be able to sell the film yourself online and get a percentage of the take, depending upon the level of your financial participation. Of course, this is totally optional, and never required.
In conclusion, many of us involved in the world of filmmaking believe it to be a calling. The whole crazy process from beginning to end imposes immense physical and mental demands on the cinematic team. But we wouldn’t have it any other way. For the team is more than a team, but a “film family”, enabling so many different people to collaborate towards an artistic creation. Our cinematic vision brings adventure and happiness into our lives, but also requires persistence, dedication and enthusiasm. For whenever a film teams knows a project is ready to move forward, the energy level pumps up with all the great expectations of what this could bring, because the team clings to a singular goal: the quality of the film. There is an overriding hope that this team, this film family, can create a significant film work, one the world has never seen before. It is this attitude which this film team will bring to this project, and present to the world ready to receive it. We hope that includes YOU!
