Ladies and Gentlemen, friends and family, lovers of Big Sur and independent film have we got something truly exciting to announce:
Some members of the Henry Miller Library family are working together to produce a short film which is to be shot entirely on location in Big Sur.
Written and directed by Michael Harrington, who you know from our Big Sur International Short Film Screening Series and produced by HMML Archivist Keely Richter, as well as Associate Producer Maria Teutsch (our fearless leader, editor-in-chief of Ping Pong and chairwoman of the Board of Directors), this new film follows the story of an old man in Big Sur who loses his beloved house cat to a mountain lion and sets off into the Big Sur wilderness to seek his revenge.
The filmmakers have been in the midst of a big fundraising campaign to raise the budget for this film. With a budget of $5,000, they are 3 days away from the end of the IndieGoGo campaign and are just over $1,000 away from the goal.
Visit the website for more information on the filmmakers, budget, local collaborations, and production progress.
Please visit their online fundraising campaign here to help. There are a number of perks for various levels of donation, ranging from thanks in the credits of the film, links to view the link online, DVDs, handmade totebags, signed scripts, and producer credits. Please see what level of donation works for you, and also look at the list of other ways to help.
With 3 days left on this campaign, we’ve got to do what we can to help these inspiring local filmmakers.
