Isn't it great when dreams come true? When all of your blood, sweat, and/or tears and hard work pays off? When you get to see your vision become a reality? I love when people give all of their focus and energy and passion into what they believe in. This is why I love Kickstarter.
In the last two months or so, I've backed three different Kickstarter projects, and I'd like to take this opportunity to share these three documentary projects with you. (And I just now realized that they are all documentaries.)
The first one is Roots of Rescue, a documentary about animal abuse in the South. Clearly this will be a painful, emotional doc, but how can we change something if we don't know anything about it?
Roots of Rescue met (and surpassed) their fundraising goal, so this film is in the process of being made!
Next up is one that I'm pretty sure I shared on Facebook and/or the blog. It's called I'm Fine, Thanks. It's described as "a new, feature-length documentary about complacency. It's a collection of stories about life, the choices we all make, and the paths we ultimately decide to follow." Watch the trailer and let me know if it stirs up anything inside you.
Gosh, I want to hear the stories of these people! This project has met and surpassed its fundraising goal, but is still accepting pledges until June 22nd. (If you pledge $5 or more, you get a free digital download of the movie!) Keep up with the film's progress on Facebook.
Have you read the blog, Advanced Style? It's a fantastic blog of fierce, stylish older women of NYC. Go check it out - their outfits are AMAZING! I only recently learned that they're making a documentary about these women, and after watching the trailer, you'll see that these women were meant to be seen AND heard.
Advanced Style have met and surpassed their fundraising goal, but they are still accepting pledges until June 23rd. (Pledges of $25 or more get a copy of the DVD!) Keep up with the Advanced Style blog on Facebook.
There are so many Kickstarter projects worthy of support. If you can't pledge a few dollars, just spread the word! Share links and videos via Facebook, twitter, blogs, etc. Help make dreams come true!
