Postmarked - The Movie
Ron Hunting is a friend of many in the Phoenix theatre community. He is also a friend with ALS, a deadly disease which is taking his life. Ron wrote a play which had a reading in 2014. Gene Ganssle saw the reading and thought it would make a funny film. As the idea progressed it was realized that, when released, this film could be used to fight ALS with over half of all proceeds from distribution being donated to ALS research.
Why you should join us?
We have been blessed to be a part of the ASU FilmSpark Program at the Herberger Institute's School of Film, Dance and Theatre. We got over 25 ASU interns, alumni professionals and faculty to help us make this film, along with donations of equipment from BKW, Reel Men and Canon. We finished the film in 2016, despite only being partially funded, and any proceeds from the distribution will pay back Ron & Athena, facilitate distribution and half going to fight ALS. We also have a Go Fund Me site linked here, and do what's needed to make this project successful. It is truly a labor of love.
We still need your help, however you can give it. So go ahead and fund us. We dare ya.
Do it for the comedy spirit of the film. Do it to help fight ALS. And do it for Ron. He'd like that.

Postmarked Posters Ready to Post!
Thanks to Larry Mishler and Chris Mascarelli, we have two awesome designs for our posters, postcards and DVD's, being printed with generous assistance by Richard Jackson at Techniprint, a great friend of the community. Chris also gave us a new logo, below, which took over for our other logo, below below. Find out more about the dark comedy we created by checking out the synopsis just... below.
Ron Hunting wrote the script, first of a trilogy.
In this dark comedy, an ordinary delivery route turns deadly for two mail carriers who may have seen too much. George was the lucky mailman who took off from work the day the others met a horrible fate. But fate has caught up to him as he ends up in a warehouse being interrogated by two mysterious would-be thugs. Forced to bring in anyone he’s told about the events that day, we meet George’s quirky friends. Deadly boss Jackie has no patience for the bumbling agents or the hostages’ strange behavior and wants them dead. But at the last minute, George has news that changes everything. As he bargains to make a deal for the hostages’ freedom, a double cross may be in the works. Will these unlikely heroes get out alive, or will they end up postmarked?
