Kickstarter Launch for a New Independent Film About Grunge

Post by grungefilm »

Hey Grunge Forum, I'm working on a film project that absolutely NEEDS the support of the grunge community. I'll spare you all the heavy sales pitch because we're amongst friends, but i'll give you the nuts and bolts.

On Tuesday May 28 i'm launching a Kickstarter campaign for a film about grunge ... I mean, heavily themed around grunge. I figure, if "Big Hollywood" isn't going to make a grunge movie, why not try and pull a Kevin Smith or a Tarantino?

You can preview the campaign here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/792 ... n=43109796

So basically i'm hoping to have everyone that reads this either "Like" us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter:
https://www.facebook.com/pages/Capitol- ... 0707718137
• @grungefilm

Also, would be great to keep this thread active or somehow have the mods pin the subject near the top.

Our goal is kinda lofty at $435,000; but honestly i've seen no-name documentaries pull in that amount so there is hope. Plus, grunge is a severely overlooked musical genre and in all honesty grunge will be the real star of this film. But anyway, I'm hoping we can start garnering some grassroots support and build up on Twitter followers. I think it's beyond time for someone to really make an effort to make a film about grunge.

Here's to hoping :D

Hey that sounds pretty cool! I always wanted to make a grunge movie myself. If it's set in modern times, you should mention how grunge is still around today and there are lots of modern grunge bands https://www.facebook.com/pages/Spread-t ... 8060774625 and it's not even dead in Seattle, it just gets more ignored now. You could sneak in some local band names or even ask some of them to have cameos like Mudhoney in Black Sheep. https://www.facebook.com/groups/211892655609831/

That's a cool link; so far everything's preliminary and depends totally on what happens through Kickstarter but since it's not going to be "big budget" (although it won't have Blair Witch quality either) up-and-coming bands are who i'm going to rely on to fill out the soundtrack. Keeping my fingers crossed of course.

Don't want to get anyone's hopes up yet as the project could crash and burn if the support just doesn't pan out. HOWEVER ... If I get greenlit thr three of us will definitely have to trade some chats. 8|

THX John Wayne; the campaign goes live on Tuesday (right after the holiday) so we're about to find out sooner rather than later.

Well, just got the greenlight from Kickstarter. I just need to try and tweet, FB, and youtube as much as i can before i go for launch. I'll give myself the rest of this week for prep, then pull the trigger on Monday 6/3.

But THX for the support i'm already getting.
