The Words Left Unsaid - experimental serial movie
Experimental serial film dealing with the lives and loves of 11 main characters.
Though unsuccessful in kickstarter funding this project is still on going!
I'm posting this update with about an hour and 45 minutes left on the campaign clock, but unless there's one angel holdout out there with a $30,000 credit limit the campaign will likely not be fully funded. That is not a a worry to the production team of The Words Left Unsaid however as kickstarter was just one of many sources of funding we're in the process of procuring.
If you're dropping by this project and you would still like to support it:
Feel free to make any monetary donation via the web site at http://thewordsleftunsaid.com
There will be donation information on the site in the sidebar. We are of course still open to all kinds of alternate funding sources including but not limited to:
• Tax write offs
• Product Placement
• Short form advertisements
• Gifts in kind
• 501 (c) 3 donations via Filmmakers Alliance
Also we will be setting up a mailing list on the web site. If the project sounds interesting but is closed, please sign up for the mailing list. You won't get the super secret kickstarter backer prize, but you'll get all the information about the production and its progress.

Experimental serial film - The Words Left Unsaid - Follows Sandra, Ricky, Jill, Chris, Becca, Ryan, John, Sarah, Britney, Sean and MacKenzie as their lives collide and intertwine.
Several stories interweave during three days in Philadelphia. Eleven intertwined characters: A novelist with writers' block and his wife the office power player who looks down on her under-motivated husband. Two producers who are making a play for the success or failure of their business. A screen-writer who moved across the country for love, and the woman who won his heart before they ever met. An actor who can't get respect from her father or her boyfriend. A theater director facing the loss of her lover. A world traveler who finds herself thinking about settling down. A sheltered young woman and the man she can't break herself free from. Everyone finds themselves alone sometimes, even when they're surrounded by people, and at those moments you can find yourself feeling that the city is the biggest place on earth... in the next moment however, you often find you're in a much smaller place than you thought.
The experiment of this project is to reintroduce the concept of a serial to movie houses. We are excited to give our audience the opportunity to come spend an hour with us each weekend, and spend time outside the silver screen getting to know us as well! We will be socializing, facebook connecting, and tweeting about our lives even as the story unfolds every week.
**A little about where the money is going** The $30,000 goal for The Words Left Unsaid is a large one, not unheard of on Kickstarter, but it's a huge goal. What we hope to accomplish with The Words Left Unsaid is not just to tell our story, but create a vehicle to put out the words and stories of other independent film makers. We want to help everyone say the words they've left unsaid. Aside from making the film, we will be distributing it independently to theaters nationally and world wide, but what good is a serial without all the shorts and other features that accompany it? What would a traditional movie experience be without the newsreel? We want gather some of the best available shorts, episodes, and features and create 12 nights of independent programming for our audience. A donation of even a dollar helps us to show theaters and investors that there is an interest in this type of entertainment and the $30,000 helps us market that message to those theaters.
Take a look at the rewards for supporting our production! By supporting us you will be helping us experiment with interactive movie going, and pop culture. So please contribute, spread the word, and come see "The Words Left Unsaid".
Originally written as a feature film we plan on making this project in to a 12 part serial for theatrical release. Featuring an ensemble cast of 11 main characters and several supporting roles.
The Words Left Unsaid is a film about examining the small moments that keep us separate and also bring us together. Dealing with the people you should know... Your boyfriend's business partner who is sleeping with your best friend. Your lover's husband, who wrote the book that you've been assigned to make a movie deal out of.
