My friend Jack Tremper is an amazing filmmaker and all-around interesting guy, so I was really excited to hear about his new documentary project that he’s making with his brothers. He just posted a trailer and request for funding on Kickstarter for the project, which you can see above. It looks amazing, and I’m super excited to see it when it comes out. We often take for granted all the ways in which disabled people have to struggle to accomplish basic tasks in our society, and I think a documentary that explores that further from a personal perspective is a great idea. And as you can tell from the trailer, they have the technical and storytelling chops to make it very entertaining as well.
If you haven’t heard of Kickstarter, it’s a site where people can post projects they’re working on that need funding, and people can make pledges toward the funding goal. No one actually pays until the funding goal is reached. Jack and his brothers are seeking just $15k, which is amazingly frugal for the level of production quality they’re showcasing in the trailer. You can contribute as little as $5 toward the project, and you can get all kinds of rewards and recognition for your support of the project, depending on how much you pledge.
Best of all, you’ll be helping some very talented filmmakers tell a compelling story that needs to be told. Check out the Kickstarter campaign here, and the site for the film at http://www.rollingforwardfilm.com.
