A bizarre look at the residents of a small town, in three acts.
Hi there! I’m Claudia, and with your help I’d like to make a film series called Local Access.
This project is a set of three short films, under 20 minutes each, all set in a tiny, strange, middle-of-nowhere town. From the drafting process to storyboarding to location scouting, Local Access has been almost a year and a half in the making. And up to this point, we've operated largely on coffee and a lot of index cards:
The major piece is the longest and will probably be the most complicated to shoot. About 16 minutes in length, it’s a strange, scary, funny stalker story about a handsome local television host and his biggest fan.
Once the main project is complete I'll film two shorter, supplementary pieces focusing on different members of the same community, with the long-term goal of combining these pieces into a feature. Phew!
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Although these are short films and I’ll continue to rely heavily on family and friends for many elements of the production, there are certain things that elbow grease alone can’t provide. My ultimate goal of $3,600 is high, but it's about the bare minimum required to pull this beast off! Cameras, lighting equipment, editing software, food for the crew ... these things all add up so fast, and even donating a few dollars will make a difference in bringing this project to life. Every single dollar will go to making this a better piece, including every dollar (fingers crossed!) above the goal.
Here’s the catch: this fundraising method is all-or-nothing! If we can reach or surpass our goal, awesome. If we can’t, any funds raised go back to the donors and we have to start back at square one.
But here's the fun part for you: by donating to this project, you’re eligible for tons of great rewards! Even 5 bucks will get you regular updates, and it only gets better from there. You can win DVDs, a cameo, original storyboards, all kinds of fun stuff! So take a look around, feel free to message me with any questions, and thanks for your support!
