Hey MyM community!
As we start post on our film we are constantly reminded that we wouldn't be at this point in the creative process if it weren't for your critical and inspirational support. We are so grateful to you! Many, many have taken note of the power of community because of our kickstarter campaign and the incredible rally behind it. Love that!
In this same vain there are two KS campaigns we urge you to support as they approach the end of their efforts to bring their stories to audiences like you.
Native/Indigenous filmmaker Andrew Okpeaha MacLean is attempting to release his award-winning film on his own terms. He's looking to self-distribute his beautiful, coming of age film about two Inuit youth growing up in Northern Alaska to a wider audience. Check out his campaign and you'll see for yourself why MyM's team supports it and hopes he makes his goal...who knows, MyM might be going down that same path! http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/andrewmaclean/on-the-ice-the-movie
Nekisa Cooper, producer of Pariah (kiss ass film by fellow queer woman of color filmmaker Dee Rees), is producing a film, Five Nights in Maine, that is currently looking to raise funds for production. They are 11 days away from making their goal. MyM recommends you check it out. The director Maris Curran has a hot creative team supporting her. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/306585268/five-nights-in-maine-an-independent-film-by-maris
And if you're strapped for cash than take a moment to post it on your social media networks so word can spread like wildfire...
MyM hopes that by supporting other projects like these that we can further build our audiences...after all power lies in community and our community can benefit from growing!
Wish us luck as we edit ;-)
