Kickstarting The Joneses

(Updated Below) The Joneses is a short film about a family along their courageous pursuit of love.  Trevor is a 34 year old virgin, Brad was born with brain damage, and Jheri Rae Jones was formerly their father. Now, as three single adults living under one trailer park roof in small town Mississippi, they are each ready to embark on a journey to find love outside this reunited, close-knit family unit.

Kickstarter, the world's largest funding platform for creative projects, is now accepting pledges to fund taking this short film and making it into a full-length documentary. This project will only be funded if at least $27,500 is pledged by Sunday Jan 22, 12:55pm EST. $22,521 has been pledged as of Friday Jan. 20, 7:30 pm EST.

If you would like to help fund this project, please visit to the Kickstarter website ASAP.

UPDATE:  When I posted the above last night, the Kickstarter website indicated that $22,521 had been pledged to this project. This morning, the pledge total was only $14,688. I don't get it!

UPDATE #2:  The project reached its goal!


  1. I dunno about this one. I know this family is challenged on many fronts, but this documentary looks far more exploitive than truly meaningful.


  2. This version of "the struggling family" smacks so much of exploitation, especially as far as the funding goes.

    Can you say: un-honest? Sorry, Stana to be so cynical.
