Lost Pines takes over Indiewire!

Hi Backers,

We have exciting news! We were featured as Project of the Day at Indiewire this week. We're really excited to share our project with the fine, smart readers of Indiewire.

But now we need your help to become Project of the Week! The film with the most votes on the Indiewire website gets a distribution consultation from SnagFilms. That's really cool. We'd really like that.

Vote for Lost Pines at:

http://www.indiewire.com/article/vote-for-project-of-the-week-will-it-be-months-sunny-pines-or-helen.

Please help us get out the vote by sharing the link with your friends and enemies. Together we'll make Lost Pines Project of the Week, then Month, then Year, then we'll live forever!

In other fabulous news, we reached our first stretch goal of $3,000! Because of you guys, we just booked our pyrotechnics expert for the highly anticipated Bus Barn Explosion scene. (See our location scout photo below, and imagine a fire.) Now, we're working toward our next stretch goal of $4,000!

Thanks all,

Britta & the Lost Pines Team

We did it!

Thank you guys so much for all your support of Lost Pines. With your help, we reached our $2,500 goal in just 14 hours! Whaaaat! You guys are incredible.

I'm sitting in a coffee shop trying not to burst out laughing/crying, I feel so overwhelmed by your immediate support.

Below is a picture of me being overwhelmed.

With projects of our tiny size, every dollar counts and makes a huge difference. We'd love to stretch our goal out and see what else our amazing group can do.

  • If we make it to $3,000 we will be able to afford a sound designer to bring our post-production sound to life.
  • If we make it to $4,000 we can rent a Steadicam and operator to make our sweeping shots of the Lost Pines even more thrilling.
  • If we make it to $5,000 we can afford to pay our pyrotechnics expert to make our explosion not just bigger and more phenomenal, but just as safe! 

Thank you all so much for helping out! You're the backbone of Lost Pines.

Love,

Britta and the Lost Pines Team.
