Thank you so much for your interest in my feature film project! Thank you to all who have supported, so far. Remember, if I don't get the goal of $8750 by July 7th, all the money I raised will return to the supporters and I will have to start over. Let's make cinema happen!
Hank enjoys the quiet life. As the night custodian of the public library, his evenings are sequestered in the methodical routine of work. One day, his pattern faces disruption as he is forced to deal with the sudden appearance of a strange inheritance.
Welcoming Departure is the first feature film for director Scott Ballard (Between Night, 2008 - Winning awards at the Indie Spirit and NW Projections film festival and Official Selection at the Big Island, Santa Fe, Tacoma, NW Local Sightings and Hartford film festivals).
This current fundraising campaign is focused on raising capitol to secure the crew and talent, along with procuring production insurance for the project.
Welcoming Departure will share several stylistic and technical elements with the short film Between Night, as well as the lead actor - Tom Campbell. Cinematographer Dave Rosenblum will return as the Director of Photography for the project and Adam Upchurch as the editor.
The film will be shot in Bellingham, WA and Portland, OR, beginning in October 2010. The final shooting format will depend on the amount raised - it will either be shot on Kodak film with an Eclair Super 16mm camera or on HD with a 35mm lens adapter.
Current updates are available on the film's website – WelcomingDeparture.Squarespace.com & WelcomingDeparture.com.
Detailed information on the filmmaker is available at ScottBallardFilms.com.
Project location: Bellingham, WA & Portland, OR
