Join us on February 6th, 2020 at Starr Bar to raise money for the program, find out how you can get involved, and enjoy original Goondocks content.


You have one month to make the short film you never thought you'd make until this very moment. Pen to paper on the 1st of the month and you have 4 weeks to make it and deliver to The Goondocks HQ. The Goondocks will give you $1,000 dollars for budget and will assist you in developing your vision, hiring your team, and executive producing your film. We offer guidance and heart, but we are not hands on. No strings attached. It’s your film. You keep it, we’re just here to open the door. 


This project is as much about opening doors as it is constraint. This is why you get a small amount of money to make a film in a short period of time. Start from scratch on day one, and deliver on day 30. It's that simple.

Knowing how we roll, tell us why you would be a good fit for the program. What is your past? What is your future? Do you have all the ideas, all the heart, and no camera? Stop reading and email us at


We make films inspired by the VHS era using contemporary filmmaking technology. In other words, we tell stories that interpret our modern world through the lens of old school imagination. Consider it a re-imagination of the past, present, future - even the atemporal. Save the cardboard remakes for another content studio. All Take Twelve ideas must be new, but draw on timeless inspiration.

We are only looking to share our platform with fearless filmmakers, those willing to share untold stories and give power to marginalized voices with a fearless imagination. Is that you? If so, we’re interested. What do ya got in mind?


The time constraints and no-strings attached money of Take Twelve are what make this challenge unique. You only need your heart and your mind. We want twelve directors who have made work but haven’t been given their fair shot. We want underrepresented talent. That could be you. 

We’ll use the power our community to help you bring your idea to life. We will fight tirelessly to bring your vision to life. The Goondocks find a way.
