DAVID Movie Remains Open For Investment With $11M Left To Raise.

Provo, UT—March 26, 2023—Updated April 12, 2023

DAVID, an animated feature film about the biblical story of David, Israel’s warrior, champion, and king, has officially become the largest audience funded film production of all time. The company behind DAVID, Slingshot USA, have raised $49.7 million across all investment rounds, out of its $60.9 million required project budget. The film is planned for a worldwide theatrical release in 2025. The Chosen previously held the record from its season one raise of $11 million.

“The funding success of DAVID is a perfect example of Angel Studios’ approach in allowing the audience to support exactly what they want to see” says Executive Producer and Slingshot USA Director Phil Cunningham. "It's wonderful to be making a movie with such a broad community of investors and supporters behind us, and we are very excited to be telling one of the greatest stories of human history. David's story is very important and speaks to a huge global faith community. It remains one of the best-known biblical stories outside of the faith community; we feel a huge sense of responsibility to make a movie that is epically entertaining, deeply authentic, and can stand alongside the very best major studio movies in terms of quality."

Slingshot USA is accepting investments in this current Regulation A funding round until March 31st to make this film come to light. The original investors and creator behind DAVID produced a 5-minute proof of concept that supporters can watch to catch a vision of this project.
