Sincerely Camp Starlight

Filmmaker David Shapiro is making a film inspired by his time at summer camp for his Senior Thesis at NYU and he’s set out on Kickstarter to raise funds.

Here’s the brief synopsis accompanying his Kickstarter fundraising page:

Inspired by L. Frank Baum’s “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz”

After the sharp fragment of a fallen star descends into the picturesque Camp Starlight and transforms it into a world of wonder, delinquent camper JONAH must rescue his first love from the infamous Wicked Witch of Camp Starlight.

Think THE GOONIES on a journey through THE WIZARD OF OZ.
