Top Sekrit no longer! We're making a movie! (and a play!) [Oct. 6th, 2015|07:12 am]

Clickenzee to visit the Kickstarter!

We're making a movie (and a play) and we need your help. Two years ago I used Kickstarter to make a movie of Henrik Ibsen's masterpiece A Doll's House and a lot of you helped make that happen. I came into Doll's House late, in the last week of an actual run of the play directed by Josh Hitchens at the Ebenezer Maxwell Mansion museum and cobbled together a movie shoot to keep a beautiful thing from disappearing. This year I want to continue that and bring Ibsen's Hedda Gabler to your screen. This time I've been a part of it from the start -- there are separate film and theatrical scripts, twice as many shooting days, a top notch cast, custom costumes, a soundtrack written especially for the production, upgraded equipment and lighting and I really think that I can make the best movie of Hedda Gabler that exists.

Here's a short video showing off some of what we have to work with this time.

Kickstarter backer rewards include tickets to the performances in Philadelphia and digital downloads of the finished film as well as original custom costumes made specifically for the production -- 19th century mens cravats, Hedda's beautiful black mourning dress and lots more.

If you can't make it to the play, you can also buy a ticket and leave it at the door for someone who can't afford one.

Please have a look at the Kickstarter here. If you can't back the project, I'd love a shoutout, a share with your theatrical friends and some love on the Internet.

There are comparatively few great roles for women in theater, Hedda Gabler is one of those and it's one that not many people know about. I'd love the opportunity to bring it to a larger audience.


If the Kickstarter makes it to $2,000 today, I'll post a photo of Roswell dressed as George Tesman.

(If there are backer rewards you'd like to see, or questions you have about this production, shout it out in the comments. Thanks.)

I love the "leave a ticket at the door for someone" reward. I love your stuff always, but that reward touched me so much. You guys are the best.

Ah, I remember the previous project!

This sounds very cool, and the amount you need to raise for it seems amazingly small for what you're doing (so nice work!).

I'm surprised DVD production looms so large in your budget (that you're mostly not doing it), we have quite nice quotes from duplication places that will return shrink-wrapped disks in 4-color packaging with 4-color disk printing remarkably cheaply. It's highly dependent on numbers though, we were looking at low to middle hundreds.
