Beneath Contempt has been accepted into the narrative features competition at Slamdance 2011 - help us get there and get the word out!
WHO WE ARE
Beneath Contempt explores the terrible aftereffects of a drunk driving accident on two families. A devastated young man returns to his hometown after serving a prison term for causing the deaths of friends in a car crash. As he struggles to restart a life that seems permanently derailed, a parallel story reveals the grief-stricken depression haunting the family of one of the victims. The story moves between the emotional paths both families must follow.
The film was shot in Boston, MA over the course of 25 consecutive days by a crew entirely comprised of undergraduate Emerson students volunteering their time. Through fundraising campaigns, donations, and a bit of steadfast troubleshooting the entire production was completed on a shoestring budget despite being shot on s16mm film.
WHAT WE NEED
We have been given the incredible opportunity of holding the World Premiere as part of the official selection at Slamdance 2011. We simply could not be more excited. However, in order to fully take advantage of this good fortune we have some hurdles to overcome. We need to create promotional materials, posters, postcards, etc to distribute and help create hype. We need to cover costs of sales reps and publicists. Most importantly, we need to raise funds to complete a final scan and online of the film.
We would like to invite you to join the group of people that have made this film happen. Since the beginning, through prep and production and edit, Beneath Contempt has been championed by those who felt a sincere need in creating and presenting this story to an audience. Please visit our website www.beneathcontemptfilm.com or our facebook fan page to decide if Beneath Contempt is a project you would like to see succeed. Every contribution counts towards our goal, and every contribution will be extremely appreciated.
