Forms of Identification is an experimental dance film that explores the ways we create who we are, our attachment to our various identities or persona, and where we must sometimes go to find our core selves after a perceived or real disaster. The film asks: “When I’ve lost what I perceive to be the most important element of myself, what is left?; Who am I when all my circumstances have changed?” By asking these questions, the film encourages viewers to recognize their own authentic identities, which evolve throughout life, and to also recognize how the creation and experience of art has the power to heal and transform.

Kristin and Jessica are in the final stages of post production and are preparing to present our film to audiences. Thus far we have funded the project entirely out-of-pocket and with lots of sweat equity, and are currently seeking financial contributions (small or large) to assist us in finishing the project. This is what we will do with any funds raised through Kickstarter:
• Finish editing and sound recording, hire colorist and after effects specialist.
• Design title sequence and end credits.
• Create and design a DVD and pay for duplication
• Organize a premiere screening and/or performance event
We are on schedule for completing the editing stage and hosting an informal screening by the end of the year. A formal screening date is to be determined. We also hope to submit our first festival entry by the end of the year, and more next spring.

Your donation of:
$500 covers the design and production of 100 DVDs
$250 covers one half a day's pay for a professional color/after effects specialist
$100 covers the cost of postcard mailers announcing screening and DVD release
$50 covers the entrance fee to one film festival
$25 covers postage and delivery of 100 marketing postcards

Thank you for any and all support you have provided and can continue to provide throughout our journey.
