We are so thrilled and grateful that we were able to reach our goal with so much support from everyone! In between when we started this process and now, we've found some really amazing locations to shoot in that have higher rental fees than expected. We're hoping to raise an additional $1000 to cover that.
Please read below to learn more about the project:
Hello and welcome to the Kickstarter page for our short film, Roxy and the Renegades. I am Eleanor Levine, director and co-writer of the film, which is the key part of my senior capstone project, as a graduating Film and New Media Studies major at Wheaton College, Massachusetts.
Roxy and the Renegades is a dark comedy musical revolving around a group of four fierce young women who will stop at nothing to take down a misogynistic drug lord. The film is filled with hilarious dialogue, zany characters, powerful music, and provocative themes of social justice and honorable intent.
The film will be photographed by cinematographer Zach Barragán, also a senior at Wheaton College. All of the music and lyrics are original, and will be accompanied by choreography from UMass graduate student, Kyla Amick. The shoot will take place over a ten-day period in Western Massachusetts (March 8th-18th), with more than a month of intense pre-production leading up to principal photography.
Your donations to our Kickstarter fund will:
• feed our talented cast and crew
• provide props
• enable us to build sets
• pay rental fees for our shooting locations.
We hope that you are able to donate to our small but meaningful film, and thank you for showing interest in our project!
Risks and challenges
We're on a tight budget and a tight schedule since this is my last semester at Wheaton College (MA), and the biggest project of my career so far. But I am very organized and very determined, and am working with a fantastic cast and crew of people who are all passionate about the film!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
