Happy 4th of July, lovers. Hopefully by now you have polished off at least 4 hot dogs and are at the very least 4 beers deep. 'Cause I'm about to ask for some help and the drunker you are, the more generous you may be.
Our wedding videographers, Brock Wilbur & Jocelyn Kelvin -- remember the rad video they put together of our wedding? -- are making a feature film, and they need your help to get the project off the ground. The film is called "Your Friends Close", and it centers around a husband and wife team who are headed off to Paris to develop a groundbreaking video game, a new MMO game that questions our relationship to reality, personality, and how well we can truly know one another. However, things take a turn for the worse during a going away party for them when they learn that one of them may not be going to Paris. From there the party devolves into a game for the newly vacant “throne.” Brock penned the screenplay, and it will be helmed by Jocelyn (a female director! yay!).
They are currently trying to raise funds through "kickstarter", the largest fundraising platform in the world for creative projects. They have 46 hours left to raise funds, so please, if you believe in the project, head over to their kickstarter page and throw a buck their way. Every little bit helps.
Below is a video of Brock and Jocelyn talking about the project. From the bottom of my "support the indie arts" heart, thank you for taking the time to read this (and to donate!)
