We'd love your help with the DVD release of our film VIOLET TENDENCIES (starring Mindy Cohn who played Natalie in "The Facts of Life")
Hello there! Thanks for visiting our Kickstarter page. With your help, we'd love to self-release our film “Violet Tendencies” on DVD. All we need is 300+ people to pledge at least thirty dollars. You will essentially be pre-ordering a DVD of the film (with your name in the thank you credits) and at the same time help us immensely in our quest to turn our little movie into a blockbuster!
Shot in New York in the summer of 2009, "Violet Tendencies" stars Mindy Cohn (best known for playing Natalie on “The Facts of Life”), as a straight woman trying to distance herself from her gay friends to find romantic love on her own.
We've had great success with the film on the festival circuit since its May 2010 premiere. It has picked up multiple Best Comedy awards and also a Best Actress Award for Mindy. In addition to the 50+ festivals it played, we also opened the film theatrically in two cities so far; New York and Los Angeles.
So why do we need YOUR help? Simply put, we want to self-distribute the DVD and releasing a film on DVD is expensive. Of course we want our DVD to have the highest possible quality and come filled with extras, including deleted scenes, behind-the-scenes featurettes, filmmaker commentary, and subtitles. In addition to the authoring and manufacturing costs, we also would like to mount a national PR campaign for the DVD-release (scheduled for May of 2011) so that more people not only hear about the film, but hopefully also pick up a copy.
“Violet Tendencies” is the labor of love of two individuals: Director/producer/actor Casper Andreas and writer/producer/actor Jesse Archer. But we couldn’t have done it without our amazing cast and crew who like ourselves poured a lot of hard work, energy and all their talent into the film, and we hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed making it. Additional information about the film can be found at www.violettendenciesmovie.com
Check out all the great rewards we are offering for helping us fund our release (signed DVDs, your name in the thank you credits, a special edition DVD to arrive in time for the holidays, and even associate producer credit!). So what are you waiting for? Help fund this project and turn everyone’s violet tendencies into a reality!
