How many times have you finished watching a movie, maybe it was grand, epic, and moving, or maybe it just made you laugh, or cry. But you got to the end thinking, what would it be like to be a part of it. Or maybe you thought you would like to create something similar. Or perhaps you thought, why do all the good movies come from Hollywood, how come a local movie cannot rise to the top of the pile. Well, I am here today to talk about some of these very things. There is a local video project underway, in the Boise, ID area, entitled “Skinny Love”. It is a short film that tells the story of man named Charles, who has convinced himself that the only way to escape his heartache following a failed relationship, is by abandoning his current life for a new city. Our story takes place on the eve of Charles’s departure as he makes one final attempt to win back the woman he loves before leaving for good. It has been written by Trevor Alexander and will be directed by the same. I am privileged to be a part of the process as well, and it has been exciting to see the project take shape. You can check out this video below to get just a sample of Trevor’s creative talent.
So, back to the thoughts of movies. If you were one who has wondered if it was possible to be part of making a movie, or even just helping one take place, this is your chance. Not only to see a local film grow, but to actually be a part and contribute to its success. So yes that does mean that we are asking for your support, but the awesome part about it is that it is so easy to do, and every little bit helps. So here’s the “Skinny”. If you would like to contribute financially, please check out our Kickstarter campaign, where you can find out more about all aspects of the film, the people involved, as well as the process of gifting money to the project. You can give whatever amount you desire. There are however, incentives involved. Such as a full copy of the finished film, or original artwork etc, for the different amounts given. Again all of the info is on the Kickstarter page to read more. How it works is we have 60 days to raise $1500. If we reach our goal then the money goes to the film, but if the goal is not met then we get none of it. So please consider helping us out in this endeavor to create a local film that we plan to take to film festivals and represent Idaho, and the creative atmosphere that it holds so close.
