Good news everyone! Hot Docs has just kicked off their own crowd sourcing initiative called Doc Ignite, and my next film, ‘How to Build a Time Machine’, is the first project they’re supporting!
After having a blast making Beauty Day, I wanted my follow up film to be something equally entertaining and fun to make, so I decided to return to a subject I’d dealt with before; time travel. As some of you may know, in 2005 I directed a short student documentary called Obsessed & Scientific. I’d always wanted to return to that subject matter and give it the treatment I felt it deserved, and now I have the chance to do just that. Now, with the help of Hot Docs, we’re hoping YOU might be interesting in helping support this project!
Our goal is to raise $25,000 to help cover some of our production costs, and in exchange, we’re offering some cool incentives. We’ve got DVD’s and Blu Ray’s of the final film (when it’s finished of course), a limited edition poster by artist Jesse Philips, Hot Docs screening tickets, and an AMAZING one-of-a-kind ‘Time Machine Zoetrope’ lamp designed and created by Rob Niosi, one of the subjects of the film. All of this — plus many more cool items – is up for grabs if you support our film! Just head over to our Doc Ignite project page and choose the incentive level that looks best for you!
Also, be sure to check out our campaign trailer, embedded above. It tells you a little about our campaign and features a sneak peek at some footage from the film! (There’s also an appearance by Film Junk’s own Reed Farrington). Thanks in advance to all of you who choose to help support our film!
