The Carrie Pilby Movie Kickstarter Only 7 Days left!

6 Jul

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/braveartfilms/carrie-pilby-the-movie

Indie Spirit Award winner Susan Johnson and producers Suzanne Farwell and Susan Cartsonis are bringing Carrie Pilby to life.



We are adapting critically-acclaimed novel Carrie Pilby by Caren Lissner into a script from which we will make a wonderful, thought-provoking, ultimately uplifting film.

Carrie Pilby’s eponymous main character is a 19-year old genius who graduated from Harvard early and has no idea how to fit in, date or talk to people. She believes the majority of her hometown, New York City, to be sex-obsessed, immoral hypocrites. Despite her father’s “Big Lie” about meeting like individuals at college, she felt the same way about her college peers, and an affair with her college professor only left her more isolated and alone. Her therapist gives her a five-point plan to test her very black-and-white beliefs. Ultimately, Carrie faces the universal coming-of-age (at any age) question: Which tradeoffs, if any, are acceptable in order to “fit in”?

Carrie Pilby was among the first novels published by Harlequin Enterprises’s Red Dress Ink imprint in 2003, an imprint created primarily to take advantage of the then-burgeoning “chick lit” phenomenon that included humorous books about young women like Bridget Jones’ Diary. In its first incarnation, Carrie Pilby was noted in various newspaper articles as one of the smarter and more unique novels in the genre. It proved successful, selling more than 50,000 copies. After the chick-lit market became saturated, Harlequin stopped publishing novels under the Red Dress Ink imprint, but in 2010 Carrie Pilby was chosen as one of the first books to be re-released under their new Harlequin Teen line. The novel was also published in France on June 1, 2010 as one of the first four titles released under the Harlequin French imprint Darkiss, with subsequent adaptations proving successful in Italy, Mexico, England, Australia and Indonesia.

Slender Man: Plush Toy – Kickstarter

6 Jul

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1336904045/slender-man-plush-toy

Slender Man is a 32″ plush created with the finest fabrics and materials. He is soft, yet durable toy.



Slender Man is a soft plush doll created with the finest fabrics and materials. He is soft, yet durable toy.

My two oldest girls came up with the idea for the Slender Man doll. I was working on another series of monster figure drawings when my girls ran into the studio proclaiming, “We need to make a huge, soft, creepy, Slender Man doll!” The idea was born. The three of us worked up a three foot sketch together to figure out just how tall and skinny he should be. Only four weeks later they were able to hold the finished doll in their tiny hands.

My youngest daughter adores him, (pictured below) referring to him as “my quiet friend who does not speak.”

Nevermore’s 32″ Slender Man toy is being produced with the permission of Victor Surge; the originator and man responsible for the initial photographs and writing behind Slender Man.

PRINT #1 “Come to Me”

Artist: Santiago Germano

PRINT #2 “Search Party”

Artist: Denae Wilkowski

Detail of “Search Party.”

PRINT #3 “I’ve got your dolly”

Artist: Brenden Wilson

There are a limited number of 11 x 14″ Slender Man illustrations being offered with the doll as well as individually. Each print is limited to 30 and will be signed and numbered by the artist.

Slender Man (a.k.a Slenderman) is a mythical creature often depicted as a tall, thin figure wearing a black suit and a blank face. According to the legend, he can stretch or shorten his arms at will and has tentacle-like appendages protruding from his back. Depending on the interpretations of the myth, the creature may cause memory loss, insomnia, paranoia, coughing fits (nicknamed “slendersickness”), photograph/video distortions and can teleport at will.

On June 8th, 2009, a “’paranormal pictures” photoshop contest was launched on the Something Awful (SA) Forums.[1] The contest required participants to turn ordinary photographs into creepy-looking images through digital manipulation and then pass them on as authentic photographs on a number of paranormal forums. Something Awful users soon began sharing their faux-paranormal creations with layered images of ghosts and other anomalies, usually accompanied by a fabricated witness account to make them more convincing. On June 10th, SA user Victor Surge posted two black and white photographs of unnamed children with a short description of “Slender Man” as a mysterious creature who stalked children.

“We didn’t want to go, we didn’t want to kill them, but its persistent silence and outstretched arms horrified and comforted us at the same time…” – 1983, photographer unknown, presumed dead.

One of two recovered photographs from the Stirling City Library blaze. Notable for being taken the day which fourteen children vanished and for what is referred to as “The Slender Man”. Deformities cited as film defects by officials. Fire at library occurred one week later. Actual photograph confiscated as evidence. – 1986, photographer: Mary Thomas, missing since June 13th, 1986.

BALLON: A Short Film #kickstarter

6 Jul

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/aostrander/ballon-a-short-film

A ballerina caught in the cycle of partying and cocaine-fueled rehearsals must confront her addiction when she crumbles at an audition.

THE FILM

Ballon allows the audience a glimpse into Marin’s chaotic cycle of partying and professionalism, spanning a 24 hour period. Striving for perfection but caught in a self-destructive pattern of habits, she feels that her life can only operate in a heightened mode. When we meet Marin, cocaine is the center of her universe — the thing that gets her through all-day rehearsals and all-night benders. And it’s killing her. Marin uses the drug as a driving force through her day, until she reaches a breaking point during the audition of a lifetime. Marin’s ballet company is filled with young women who have admired Marin for years, so her embarrissing crash resonates with the group. Only Emily, a fresh-faced dancer new to this world, has the courage to confront Marin and offer her a lifeline. Marin must decide if she’s ready to be honest and look at what her life has become. Making a change will mean leaving behind the life — and the dream — that she knows.

In this heavily stylistic film, you’ll be swept into the emotional world of the dance floor, both in a nightclub and within a ballet company’s walls. The juxtaposition of the music and ambiance of the two spaces will visually stimulate the audience, and allow you to live in the moment with Marin.

Ballon will be entertaining, emotionally engaging, and a piece that sheds light on the dangers of demanding too much of oneself. Inspired by her own observations in the dance world, director Alexis O. Korycinski brought the idea to writer Julia Cox who immediately responded to the concept and penned the piece. Together, they bring you the journey of one broken woman’s path to self-examination. The creative and production team has backgrounds in film, theatre, and dance, and Ballon is a labor of love they are proud to share.

Did we mention there’s an underwater dance sequence?!

Relevé (Here’s Where You Come In)

Whether you are a dancer, dance enthusiast, or someone who’s eyes get a bit wider after seeing an eloquent dance, WE WANT YOU! We welcome each and every one of you to the Ballon Family with open arms! We are creating a community eager to make a change. A change for self-awareness. A change within the dance community. A change for young people demanding beyond their means.

Your support on this project will help us build Marin’s chaotic world.

Check out our Rewards section for our rad kickbacks!!

REWARD EXAMPLES:

Private Instagram Access:

For $10 you will have access to the private Instagram where you will see photos from the cast and crew.

HEADSHOTS:

For $500 (only 20 available) you will receive a private headshot session (does not include hair and makeup) in Los Angeles with the director. This must be redeemed within one year, and you’ll need to provide your own travel to Los Angeles and accommodations once you’re here. Please see examples below.

Original artwork:

Thaddeus T. Chapman will paint original paintings inspired by Ballon for the $5000 and $10,000 Rewards. Please see examples of his work below.

Thaddeus T Chapman has been a professional painter based in Central New York since 2000. In 2012, he relocated to the Central Coast of California.

His paintings are created using gouache on rice paper—a technique that utilizes layers of the heavier, more opaque water-based paint on thin rice paper creating works with greater reflective qualities. “I use the techniques of abstract expressionism and apply them to my figurative work” says Thaddeus, who describes his style as figurative abstraction. Chapman utilizes reference photos of his subjects, which he uses to develop drawings. Although he considers himself a portrait painter, his works vary from landscapes to abstracts and nudes. For more examples please visit his website:http://thaddeustchapman.com

Where Will The Money Go?

Every penny will go directly towards Ballon! We’ve got some work to do! Your support will lend itself towards –

  • costumes
  • hair & makeup (we have to get Shelby to look like a druggie!)
  • set
  • location fees & permits (because we want to do good by LA)
  • top notch filming equipment
  • food for cast & crew (“Please, sir, can I have some more?” Of course you can because we have plenty of food thanks to our donors!)
  • underwater gear (oh yeah — here’s our underwater scene plug again)
  • editing
  • paying for all of the fantastic kickbacks you’ll be receiving shortly!
  • and…. taxes! We must do right by Kickstarter. They’re good people.

THE RAINBOW-SPECTRAL DISPLAY CLOCK KICKSTARTER

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1070877600/rainbow-spectral-display-clock

The Reignlight Company is introducing the aesthetics of time as embodied in Rainbow-Spectral Display Clock.



CROSS-SECTION VIEW OF RSDCROSS-SECTION VIEW OF RSD

The Reignlight Company is introducing the aesthetics of time as embodied in Rainbow-Spectral Display clock. The actual aesthetic time is displayed upon architectural surface in the form of rainbow light shaped to show the dial face of the clock or actual rainbow image of it. The rainbow clock is a light projection device that creates live spectrum thus showing actual time.

The present version of the soft functional rainbow display clock requires improvements and optimization for greater quantities to manufacture, so money will be spend to cover cost of professional engineers that prepare the prototype for serial manufacturing. And to insure reasonably priced Rainbow Clock sufficient inventory of materials needed must be purchased. The total cost represents delivery of 6400 units on the market. The manufacturing process needs about 3 months of preparation, so first delivery will be made after 6th months from the date of funds available for this project. The Rainbow Clock represents modern notion of aesthetic time, that is why this project is very important for the advancement of civilization. The merit based assistance provided by Kickstarters is a noble approach to solving economic problems of our time, therefore inventors such myself truly appreciate your kind acts of good will.
