“The Family” is pretty much just a labor of love project from some college-aged guys who like to make movies and tell stories. Made with almost no budget and no professional actors, we shot it in and around our hometown of Sacramento, California. Filmed on weekends whenever everyone could set aside time, we set out to try and make the best movie we could with the resources we had at our disposal. “The Family” may not be much compared to them fancy-schmancy Hollywood-type movies, but we’re pretty proud of it.
So many friends volunteered their time, money, efforts, and talents to making this film a reality. I can’t thank you all enough. Thank you for helping contribute towards something that, while it was a lot of hard work, was truly a joy to create with each and every one of you. I hope you are pleased with the final result. My hope, as it is with any good story, is that you come out of “The Family” having enjoyed yourself… And if you don’t? Well, that’s fine. At least we gave it a shot!
Enjoy the film!
