This campaign is to raise finishing funds for Jackie., shot on Super 16mm film in November of 2010. Donations will go toward optimizing the project through color-correction, sound design and musical score.
In addition to qualifying me for graduation from NYU Graduate Film this Spring, Jackie. will function as a "trailer" of sorts for the feature film script, from which her character was born.
A match between Mother & Daughter: At stake? A boy’s life.
A friendly dinner takes a wrong turn in Jackie. The story of an Ivy Leaguer and her birth mother who find out that their similarities are disturbingly strong and first impressions can never be undone.
Having grown up in East New York's volatile child care system, Jackie Isley is armed with street and book-smarts upon meeting "Ronnie" for the first time. Looking more like her sister, Jackie soon learns that not only is she the product of a teenage pregnancy, but also that her mother is out for blood...
Jackie's is one of many "life lessons" that I hope to tell through my holistic film company B. Good Productions.
Making this film was a tremendous lesson in itself! Visit thejackiefilm.com for all things Jackie: set photos, cast/crew bios and more.
This film is fiscally sponsored by Fractured Atlas. If you prefer to make a tax-deductible donation and/or contribute finishing funds after the Kickstarter deadline expires, please visit https://www.fracturedatlas.org/site/contribute/donate/3079.
