The Fun Stuff (updated 3/17/10)
- This month, we've launched our official website!
- Solomon Grundy Born on a Monday
- Solomon Grundy has been getting some attention! After sitting down and talking things over, one of the producers of 2008s Oscar nominated film, Revolutionary Road, Henry Fernaine has signed on to guide me through this process and make sure Grundy taps its full potential
- When that happened, we recently were featured in the Kickstarter Blog!
I made a good project with $250. I'd like to make a spectacular project with more. See what I can do with a little, then help me prove what I can do with a lot. I'm 19 years old. I've got a plan, watch my proof of concept, and help me run with it. www.wackeychan.com I make movies. Three features, and a lot of short films. I'm now taking on a few projects I'm very proud of, and would like to make them as good as they possibly can be. Though I am working to fund six short films, it comes as one project.
Below, I would like you to watch Solomon Grundy: Born on a Monday which was made on a low budget of $250 USD and shot in a day. http://www.youtube.com/watch... It's kind of a proof of concept. The film was shot on an extremely low budget in a day and a half. I would like the opportunity to take the characters, the world, and the tone that I've hit on, and really enjoy, and take off with it.
It's from my work in Solomon Grundy that I hope to take off with this project and complete several more 'episodes' based off of the nursery rhyme... Solomon Grundy, born on a Monday Christened on a Tuesday, Married on a Wednesday, Took ill on a Thursday, Grew worse on a Friday, Died on a Saturday, Buried on a Sunday This is the end of Solomon Grundy Each verse has it's own episode. They are not chronological, and interweave time and place, with characters coming in and out of the story. At the very end the whole series will be boxed up into an excellent DVD complete with special features. Deluxe editions come with a special production book. Read the rewards for more. I'm looking to really give myself a budget I can use to deliver a higher quality. Please watch my pitch video, and be sure to e-mail me if you have any questions. announcement: when I reach 5k I will be releasing Stephen King's "Popsy" to my backers only. Look for it in the updates. about me Mattson Tomlin www.wackeychan.com http://mattsontomlin.blogspot.com/ http://www.youtube.com/user/wackeychan http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3231728/
