Did you ever hear the one about the reporter, the waitress, and the fallen angel?
3 years after you partnered with us to achieve a successful Kickstarter campaign- around a film that is still reaching new audiences (more on that at the end of this update)- we're back with THE DEVIL NEEDS A FIX! In this dystopian supernatural film which explores authenticity and the Orwellian alternative, the devil invites a reporter to coffee and an interview, which will lead to the reporter's big break- if everything goes as planned. THE DEVIL NEEDS A FIX reunites me (writer/director) with FROM THE SKY'S Producer Jess Grant, Actor Steven Soro, Editor Eric Frith, and Assistant Director Ian Van der Werff.
Thanks to a few initial donors and a cast and crew from L.A. and Seattle who donated their time, we managed to shoot a very promising film in late May. Now we need your support to get THE DEVIL NEEDS A FIX completed in post production and will offer some cool rewards- including an invitation to an exclusive "on set" event prepared by Seattle's only 2016 James Beard Award 'Rising Star of the Year' semifinalist and executive chef- to wet your whistle. As always- donations at the beginning of this campaign go even further- by helping to create a momentum which will encourage others to jump in and support this effort as well!
Speaking of our first project together- which wouldn't exist without your support- FROM THE SKY went on to receive 12 awards, 7 nominations, and more than 25 domestic and international festivals including the Oscar-qualifying Seattle International Film Festival and Rhode Island International Film Festival, where it also won a Grand Prize International Humanitarian Award out of 5,000 submissions and 250 screened films. Renowned industry website Cinephilia & Beyond called FROM THE SKY an “amazing and pioneering short film...an unwavering testament to the filmmaker’s prowess.” In July, FROM THE SKY will stream on Alaska Airlines’ inflight SIFF Selects Channel and PBS.org while having its television debut on PBS' Seattle affiliate KCTS 9. FROM THE SKY will also be broadcast on Rhode Island PBS in late summer.
We hope to see you tomorrow and will share the live link in an update (delivered just like this, to your inbox) as soon as we launch.
