Do you believe in homeschooling?
Partner with us to show the world what homeschooling is all about!
“My friends, Garritt & Yvette Hampton, are creating what I believe will be one of the most important projects to expand the message of homeschooling that we have seen in the past decade.” – Israel Wayne
There is a war raging all around us for the hearts and minds of our children. As early as preschool, a secular ungodly foundation is being set for them in schools all across our nation. Children are being indoctrinated with a worldview that undermines the value of life and teaches them that they have no purpose. They are also being taught that their parents are not the authority in their lives. This agenda is robbing our children of who God made them to be. Desperate parents are crying out and they don’t know what to do.
But there is hope! As parents, we have the freedom to remove our children from these government institutions and teach them at home the values and morals set before us in God’s Word. However, many parents don’t home educate because they don’t realize this option is available to them, or because they don’t feel like they are equipped to do it. Schoolhouse Rocked will help to open the eyes of these parents and show them that they can be successful in homeschooling.
Schoolhouse Rocked: The Homeschool Revolution is a feature-length documentary currently in post-production. We are asking the homeschool community, and supporters of this movement, to partner with us in spreading the message that homeschooling is good for students, good for families, and good for culture by bringing Schoolhouse Rocked to theaters nationwide.
PARTNER WITH US!
You can change lives! YOUR help is needed to finish Schoolhouse Rocked. Since post-production has now begun, full funding is critical and needed immediately in order to complete this film with excellence. The post-production budget for the film is $198,157 and that budget still needs to be funded. Following post-production, the P&A budget (marketing) will need to be raised in order to get Schoolhouse Rocked into theaters nationwide through Fathom Events.
We were never meant to do this alone. And we haven’t. Whether you have been a cast member in the film, a guest on the podcast, a prayer warrior, or a previous donor, THANK YOU. The role you have played in the ministry of Schoolhouse Rocked is vital. But we have a great financial hurdle to overcome and once again, your help is needed. We need you…the body of Christ to rally around us and help us finish this important film.
Join us in providing this great resource to families considering homeschooling for the first time, to moms struggling with feelings of inadequacy, parents working hard to balance family responsibilities and school time, and to students wondering if they are missing out by not attending public or private schools.
While we are asking you to donate, we really want to build a partnership with you in this important endeavor. As a donor, you will receive regular project updates, and we will call on you to spread the word about the film. We will work to finish the film with excellence, so that together we can fill theaters and share Schoolhouse Rocked in your community.
A FILM FOR HOMESCHOOLERS, BY HOMESCHOOLERS!
But the project is much bigger than them. All along, Schoolhouse Rocked has been a project of the homeschooling community!
WHY MAKE A HOMESCHOOL MOVIE?
AUDIENCE AND IMPACT
In the U.S. today, there are 75 million millennials, 12% of whom would prefer to homeschool their children*, but many don’t understand that they can. So many believe the myths, misconceptions, and outright lies (socialization, anyone?!?) about homeschooling that they don’t even consider it when their children are starting school. Schoolhouse Rocked will break down these misconceptions and show what a blessing homeschooling can be. It will show that families just like theirs are homeschooling with great success and enjoying the freedom, flexibility, academic benefits, and character building opportunities that homeschooling brings.
In many homes, a parent may desire to homeschool, but be faced with the opposition of a spouse, friend, or family member. Schoolhouse Rocked will help break down this resistance and provide a well-reasoned, logical, and emotionally moving argument for the benefits and blessings of homeschooling.
Fathom Events offers the opportunity to show the film in over 800 theaters across the United States. That means that in just two nights around 300,000 people will be presented with this important message. Following the theatrical release, homeschooling families will have the opportunity to share the Schoolhouse Rocked DVD, Blu-ray, and digital download with their family, friends, and neighbors. We will also make the movie available for community events at churches, homeschool co-ops, and libraries – influencing the next generation of leaders and world-changers!
We have finished filming! We are now in post-production stage. This means hiring an editor, composer, colorist, and post-production studio to mix the audio and deliver a completed film. We have established relationships with the companies and people necessary to finish the film, but we still need to raise the budget necessary to complete the fil.
Once post-production is finished, the nationwide theatrical marketing campaign will begin. We have already built an influential network of sponsors and marketing partners to get the word out as widely and as efficiently as possible. Partner with us to raise the necessary marketing capital, in addition to the post-production budget. We are committed to producing the best film we can, and we will complete it, but a blockbuster crowdfunding campaign will mean that the film can be done more quickly and will result in a more beautiful film.
We are working with Fathom Events and Collide Media Group to bring Schoolhouse Rocked to theaters. With any project of this type, the release date and scope are subject to many factors, including fundraising, the Fathom Events release schedule, and final project approval. DVD, Blu-ray, and digital release (streaming and download) will follow the theatrical release and scheduling will be dependent on a post-theatrical distribution deal.
