Now You Can Save Independent Film

26 Jan

I love indie movies, not just the ones that end up at our movie theaters, but also the ones at the film festivals begging to be picked up by a distributor.

Sometimes, the best films don’t get to reach a wide audience until years later if at all. My favorite films don’t always have famous celebrities in it…in fact, sometimes, they’re all unknowns and that’s what makes it so great. The film doesn’t rely on the names of the actors to sell the story, but it’s the actors themselves who become the story.

For example, this preview of a short film below is so stunningly beautiful, I could not forget about it for days! Please support them on their fundraising website or check out their studio website.

The website on which they are based, Indiegogo.com is quite a new experience to me. Who knew that with a couple of donations, you’d be giving these filmmakers an opportunity to share their unique vision to the world? As an additional perk, you’re connected to the film itself by being listed in its credits, have an opportunity to receive a copy of their video, or other swag.

I’m a film buff at heart and I hate to see the future of filmmaking relegated only to big-name directors and producers. Sometimes, we need to inject a fresh perspective from new talent.

I’m sick of sequels and prequels, aren’t you?

*Disclaimer: I may sound like a commercial, but I’m not. I really love the idea of crowd-funding a film and honestly, I’ve seen how difficult it is to sell a film and how even an amazing director can get passed up because not enough people know about him or the companies don’t want to take a risk on his film.

So, just to be safe, this is my unsponsored personal opinion and I have no affliation or association to the movie itself or Indiegogo.com.
