We are raising money to complete post production for this short film based on Jenifer Hixson's Moth story, later told on This American Life.
After an adventurous location shoot in Asbury Park, NJ, filming at the beach home of Jenifer Hixson, we want to continue to do justice to this remarkable story. The footage looks beautiful, thanks to cinematographer Sanne Kurz (and her Canon 5D) and the performances from our leads, Kristin Taylor and Loren Lockwood are raw and heartfelt in this slice of life drama. With your contribution, we will have enough funds to produce a high quality finished product that will garner buzz and acclaim at festivals.
Because we are resourceful indie filmmakers, the $4000 we raise will be used to edit (visual & sound), score the film, get a sound mix, color grade and obtain music rights and create the highest production value possible.
If you like, we can make your payment tax deductible as we have a non-profit set up through Fractured Atlas (only for pledges of $100 or more - and please send an email about it if interested).
When ;) we exceed our goal, funds will be spent on marketing, promotion, and festival screeners.

Based on a story heard on This American Life, “Girls Who Smoke” tells a tale of how a shared cigarette can lead to a friendship where you least expect it, and how a stranger can bring about a sudden sense of self discovery and inspire a life change.
