Filmmaking, at its best, is visual storytelling. It is more show than tell; it is a series of images, still lives in motion, that come together in a glorious burst of sight and sound and whisk us away.
To create a film, you must have a vision. You must have a vision of a story, of character, of journey… and then, you must frame your vision. You need recurrent themes, told through images – some subtle, some not, always present. You sit up, late at night, running pictures through your mind. You dream of light, of dark, of color and tone… and then, comes production when you try to capture it all. It is an immense undertaking.
Imagine what it would be like to make your first film as you are going blind.
Chicago filmmaker Jack Marchetti is facing this very challenge as his Kickstarter Campaign for 4 of a Kind – A Crime Thriller Set in Chicago – comes to its conclusion. As of today, he is only partially funded.
Folks, if ever there was a campaign to support, this is it. Help this filmmaker see his vision come to life… before he loses his vision. Read Jack’s article for Film Courage.
It’s not just about the hook of the condition that Jack lives with; it’s about his passion for this project. It’s about good filmmaking. It’s about story. About courage. It’s about community.
Give up your beer money for a couple of days. Jack has less than 100 hours left on his campaign. Let’s see this mofo get funded.
Now, go fund.
