"Thévenot" is a short drama about a late 50s stoic, yet comedy club regular, whose peculiar presence is finally made sense of when a bo
Thévenot is the subject of this kickstarter video. It is a short film that Roy Hathon and Houston Jones set out to make May 25th through May 27th, 2012. It is a short film about the mystery that surround an Old Man’s attendance at a local comedy club. A “mystery” because the Old Man has never smiled – needless say; laugh – at any of the jokes yet he has continuously been attending the club for three months. That mystery is solved when Emily, a young beginner comic, performs a skit that has no one laughing but the Old Man.
Thévenot can only be told with the right talent, proper technology and adequate location. The talent is growing, as our cast and crew are nearly complete. We have prospect locations, so all that we’re really missing is that technology! Visit www.thevenotthefilm.com for information on "who", "how" and "where".
From the RED Scarlett, on which we’ll be shooting, along with other camera equipment (different lenses, necessary tripod, dolly, etc) as well as lighting and grip equipment, the list of rentals gets lengthy. It’s all waiting for us but there’s only one way to get to it and that way is--
YOU! Yes, you! You, whose eyes are reading these very words! You, whose eyes have viewed the kickstarter video! You, whose emotions will errupt when watching Thévenot on July 13 2012! You are our only way of getting to the equipment we need and you can help by backing this project through a donation or simply sharing this message. But keep in mind that our time is limited!
Yes, we only have a month to raise money for our production. And when this clock ends, another one starts: that of our three days of production (May 25 - May 27). And after that, the clock is reset to the first film festival deadline. For film festival information, please visit the "why" and the "when" sections of our website.
In every story, the protagonist experiences something new and is changed by it. In this story – the story of the collaborated efforts to make Thévenot a reality – everyone is giving either work, time, efforts or money because they believe in this project and want to experience being a part of its fruition.
Just like every story is impossible without collaboration, Thévenot is impossible without you.
