Buckjumping is a feature-length documentary film about New Orleans. Specifically, it's about New Orleanians. It's about what makes New Orleanians different. What makes them important. What makes them like no one else on Earth. 

This is not your average film about New Orleans. This isn't a stroll down Bourbon Street or a streetcar ride on St Charles Avenue. Buckjumping dives into back streets, neighborhood barrooms, high school band practices, houses, kitchens, and living rooms. Buckjumping takes its time and gets the story right. 

If you want to get film-nerdy about it, Buckjumping was inspired by Les Blank’s Always For Pleasure. The communities profiled in Always For Pleasure have changed profoundly since the film was released in 1978. Brass music has evolved, hip hop and bounce have exploded, and the dances are ever changing. We want to show New Orleans today and go deeper than previous films. 

Buckjumping follows six communities through the streets of New Orleans as they celebrate, disrupt, resist, teach their young, bury their dead, and find spiritual transcendence. Our immersive filming style plunges the viewer right into these events: a Sunday secondline, a Treme jazz funeral, a Mardi Gras Indian rehearsal, a bounce club, a drag night, high school dance practices, and of course, parades. We go behind-the-scenes, working with practitioners to learn what stories they would like to tell and how they would like to be presented onscreen. 

Our guides on this journey are No Limit rapper Mia X, dance scholar/Yellow Pocahontas member Aussetua Amoramenkum, Bounce pioneer DJ Jubilee, and Cash Money producer Mannie Fresh.

They provide the cultural and historic context for what we see onscreen, exploring the spiritual connection of bodily movement, dance as a form of worship, dance as a form of protest, and dance as a statement of Self. 

It's vital that the communities profiled in Buckjumping be seen and heard on their own terms. We hope that audiences will be inspired to fight injustice in their communities, and to fight to preserve the essential cultural heritage that makes life worth living for all of us.

WHAT THE MONEY WILL BE USED FOR:

We have made this on a shoestring budget. For three years, we have borrowed cameras, begged favors, and sustained an incredibly cinematic filming style while paying our crew in little more than sandwiches and beer. 

But now we need cold hard cash in order to finish. We need to pay our editor to finish the edit. We need to pay music licensing so we can have the soundtrack that this film deserves. We need to pay for technical things like color correction, dialogue editing, and sound mix. We need to pay to get the film formatted into all the boring technical platforms that film festivals require. 

We've pulled off a minor miracle in getting this film made. But if we can't raise the finishing funds we need to complete it, the rough cut will sit on our hard drives and never be seen by anyone. True story. 

IF WE EXCEED OUR GOAL:

Every single dollar that we raise beyond $20k will go towards travel expenses to bring community members on tour with the film. Buckjumping is about New Orleanians. So we feel it's pretty important that New Orleanians are present when it screens. In keeping with our beliefs that film should empower community, we would like Buckjumping to function as a platform to encourage community members to speak for themselves.

In short: film festivals will pay for the film director to attend. But they don't pay for the people IN THE FILM to attend. So every dollar we raise in excess of the $20k will go towards bringing the people in Buckjumping to these film festivals so they can speak about their lived experience, their community and their experience being part of this film. Who better to be ambassadors of New Orleans cultures than the actual New Orleans culture bearers? 

 

Riesgos y desafíos

The film is nearly finished but we need these crucial finishing funds to launch it out into the world. If we don't make it across this fundraising goal, the release of the film could be delayed, its film festival premiere status blown and its impact on the local community diminished.
