New Project Round-Up

Share this post

There’s nothing I love more than a project creator who is unabashed about being their slightly-bumbling, sometimes-stuttering, undeniably-delightful self, and this weekend’s projects were brimming with just such charmers. Below, I’ve collected some of the greatest hits for your enjoyment. Go ahead — fall in love!

 Howard Glitch: A Multimedia Jigsaw Puzzle — by Jay Kenworthy & Rob Allmand

“Howard Glitch” is a tale told in a very unusual way. The complete story consists of three components — a book, an EP, and a collection of visual art — with each piece speaking to a radically different perspective on the overall narrative. The footage of the film in progress is beautiful, the rewards are super cheap ($20 gets you the whole shebang!), and Rob’s cameo at the end is adorably earnest. I’m a fan!

These dudes are kind of absurdly charming, what with the gun tricks, fire lassos, and “we-are-clearly-best-friends” style of banter. I admit to watching their video twice because it made me giggle so much.

From a cutely cheeky, one dollar reward to a project video combining great performance footage with warmly candid, enthusiastic dialogue, Anna’s project does a great job of conveying her creative spirit. Not only do you feel like you know Anna by the time your finished watching, you feel like you want to support her. Well done!

HiChristina Makes a Movie — by Fritz & Christina

Fritz and Christina are a pair of best friends and creative partners who are making a movie that comes with a scratch ‘n’ sniff book. There are so many great things happening in that sentence that it’s nearly impossible not to love them immediately, and with cool rewards like masquerade masks, one-of-a-kind handmade shirts, and copies of the film itself — why bother resisting?!

I kind of want Mason to be my best friend after watching this project video. Within the first ten seconds he’s charged headfirst into a freezing cold ocean, and then we get to hang out with him in his living room for awhile. He’s so friendly and conversational that, even though I know hundreds of people will probably be watching this video, I feel like he’s talking right to me. Sweet!
