On a wooded island, a young woman becomes caretaker to an old man in a vegetative state and struggles with sexuality, guilt and loss.
We are proud to announce that Without will be premiering in competition at the Slamdance Film Festival in Park City! For many of us, including director Mark Jackson , cinematographer Jessica Dimmock , and lead actress Joslyn Jensen, this is our first feature film. The project was filmed on location on Whidbey Island, WA, with a tiny crew and on a tiny and self-funded budget. Now a year after conception, our hard work and dedication to the project have resulted in a film that has been accepted into two film festivals, with many more to come. In this year's festivals, we'll be slated in competition opposite films with much greater resources to produce and promote.
A number of highly talented artists have already lent their abilities to the project either for free or for marginal cost. However, there remain some expensive final steps to finish the project including mastering the sound mix, color correcting the picture, creating special effects, making exhibition quality prints, and promoting the film.
Without has been honored with praise from filmmakers and critics. With such encouraging feedback we hope to raise sufficient funds to finish the film at the level of artistry that we've strived for throughout.
Please peruse the list of media we've created as prizes (there are some hidden gems in there, Ron Carrier reading Faulkner is a miracle and Joslyn Jensen is a songbird) and, if you're able, pledge a donation to help us finish the film.
Gratefully, The Cast and Crew of Without
