Highlight Reel: 10 Cool New Film Projects
Share this post
Just about every day we come across a fascinating new documentary or sci-fi short or animation or full-length feature film. It's mind-boggling. This week, we thought we'd highlight 10 film projects of varying types that are on their way to completion. There's a wide range of stuff here, so you'll likely find something you'll want to see. And when you're done, head over to our Watch Now page, where you can browse hundreds of Kickstarter-funded films available to stream at this exact second.
Kirk Noble spent eight years on death row for a crime he didn't commit. This new doc from Gregory Bayne is nearly complete, and needs your help to hit the fest circuit in 2015.
From Larry Wilson (writer of Beetlejuice, The Addams Family, Tales From the Crypt) — this dark comedy web series reframes the Cinderella story as a reality TV show. Scary how right that metaphor seems…
Every filmmaker we've ever met has told us that this festival is unbelievably rad. Help them celebrate 20 years.
We loved Darius Monroe Clark's SXSW doc about what led him to commit armed robbery and spend over a decade in prison. Now he's raising funds to take the film on the road for a theatrical (and prison) tour.
How cool is this? Wyrd is running a campaign to create a collectible BluRay of their long out-of-print documentary on H.P. Lovecraft. Distributors take note — if you're looking to reprint or restore a title, Kickstarter can help!
Triple threat! These folks are (a) creating a new NES video game, (b) filming a documentary about it, and (c) crafting a tutorial so that people can make their own NES games. Looks like we might finally have options beyond getting laughed at by that damn dog in Duck Hunter:
The latest documentary from Our Nixon director Penny Lane. Meet the man who "cured" impotence through goat testicle transplant AND ran for governor of Kansas.
A PBS-style documentary about the house where Little Women was written (and set) back in 1868. Over 70k already raised — we think this is going to be a big one!
Two men have made it their life's work to build an elevator to space. This film will chronicle their journey.
This Sundance-supported debut from filmmaker Andrew Ahn follows a closeted Korean-American teen as he comes to terms with his sexuality.
From Joel Clark and Dave Boyle (Man From Reno, Surrogate Valentine, Daylight Savings). Get ready for the first (hopefully not last) psychedelic Dickens adaptation featuring robot cats.
