About

ABOUT THE FILM.

The Comfort of Men is a documentary film, inspired by a collection of paintings by New York-based artist, Branden Wallace. The collection is made up of portraits, featuring fathers and sons, brothers, friends and boyfriends, which explore the issues surrounding masculinity, male expression and intimacy within each of these relationships.
The film features interviews with the artist, a number of the portrait subjects, as well as a host of other artists, writers, critics and art professors.

USING THE FUNDS.

The funds we're looking to raise through kickstarter will be going towards the post-production, marketing and distribution of the Comfort of Men.

Over the next few months, the documentary will be in the hands of editors and sound engineers who will be helping us produce a finished film of the highest quality, ready for the international film festival circuit. We will be working on a full color-correction, new titles, dvd menus, sound mixing and foley work.

An original score is also being composed for the film by the extremely talented Adrian More, a recent graduate from the Royal College of Music in London.

In early 2012, we begin our festival campaign, starting off with Palm Springs, California. We'll be targeting a large number and wide variety of festivals, from those we feel are very closely associated with the themes and issues raised in this film, to some of the major festivals, including Sundance, Cannes and TriBeCa. The printing and copying of multiple dvd's and posters to be sent out, is included in this budget, as well as all application fees, packaging and posting to festivals throughout the world.

With the funds raised, we will be able to market our film online, through ads and profiles on imdb, facebook, withoutabox, an exclusive website for the documentary, as well as many other sites. A strong online presence and festival campaign will work to gain recognition for the project, and increase it's chance of continued success.

Your help in this will really give film the best opportunity to find it's place in the world and in doing so encourage open dialogue and debate surrounding the themes and issues that are raised in this documentary.

Your contributions to this project, however great or small, are enormously appreciated.
