Okay, so you cannot really join me unless you walk away from your life, sacrificing all your sources of energy, time, income and working appliances to move here, however you can still help get an independent film “in the can” and “ready for bed.”
How? By helping to fund the production costs. Filmmaking is expensive, even the “low budget” stuff. This is independent, low budget and high quality. I’m not comparing Kimmy With It to Dirty Dancing, I only want to remind you that low budget does not necessarily equal bad results. I mean that little movie made a star out of Patrick Swayze and turned the already recognizable Jennifer Grey into a household name in the late 80s and even got a re-release in theaters for its 10-year anniversary — and that’s just talking about America. It’s continually being re-released in other countries, even as recently as this year! So toss away your erroneous thinking that small budgets and crowdfunding can only lead to garbage… I think I have just proven it just ain’t* so.
If you are interested in helping some starving artists produce a funny, funny film and then get to see your name in lights, okay well, not in the lights of a marquee, but pixellated lights on a television, telephone, computer screen or pad near you, then head on over to GoFundMe.
I did it and now I’m challenging each of you to be good little minions and do the same. It’s quick, it’s easy, and only a little painful. I’ll thank you now and the world will thank you later!
*And, by the way, “ain’t” is now in the dictionary so I guess it’s now a word. But I gotta say, it’s still a fun little pneumonic device: “Ain’t ain’t a word ’cause it ain’t in the dictionary!”
