Charlotte, a hip downtown New Yorker, is forced to revisit her small town roots while she deals with the sudden death of her mother.
"And After All" is the story of Charlotte (played by Annabelle Dexter-Jones), a young, hip, downtown artist living in New York City. On the eve of her first major solo exhibition, she struggles to keep up as the center of attention while facing betrayal by her best friend Lux (played by Byrdie Bell). The morning after, Charlotte is shocked by news that her mother has suddenly passed away. Truly alone for the first time and questioning life decisions, she ventures home to pick up the pieces.
We have an ambitious vision for this film in every facet. In order for the film to be shot in the highly cinematic and compelling style we envision "And After All" needs YOUR HELP.
Writer/Director Julian Ungano along with La Lutte Continue and Shooting Films is asking for your support to create this emotional, stirring, and beautiful drama about where we've been, where we're going, and who is there.
About Shooting Films:
Shooting Films is an ideology. With an independent spirit, it refers to a love of great storytelling that fuels filmmaking. Started in early 2012 by Jack Bryan, Laura DuBois, and John Snyder the team combines their talents to form a company that is experimental yet practical, artistic yet entertaining, and planned out yet flexible. While young, the combined fifteen years of experience amongst the three founders allows them to provide a fresh voice in the current industry landscape.
The team understands that for an independent film to be profitable, it first and foremost has to be good. The company prioritizes making quality films largely geared at younger generations who have grown tired of watching formulaic films. Shooting Films works toward pushing the storytelling capabilities of film. The company strives to create products that are both artistically and commercially appealing without sacrificing one of those key principles.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Between us... the La Lutte Continue and Shooting Films teams have stepped foot on every continent, won awards for cinematography, editing, and photography, worked on photography shoots and film productions with no money and some that have multimillion dollar budgets. We're a team that knows what it truly takes to bring this beautifully written script and vision to life. The only things we NEED are the TOOLS and BARE ESSENTIALS to make that reality.
Kickstarter funds raised will go towards film equipment rentals including: lighting, lenses, transportation, lodging for the cast and crew, copious amounts of caffeinated beverages, greasy food, and last but certainly not least the funds needed to submit this amazing film to a rigorous cycle of international film festivals. Any additional funds raised will go towards the production of the film. It's important to note that even this goal is merely the BARE essentials to make our film.
