WHY WE NEED TO MAKE THIS FILM:
We love independent film.
We love films for grownups. We hope that you love independent film and films for grownups too.
Terry and Lauren have been talking about making Cinemanovel ever since their last film, A Night For Dying Tigers premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2010.
It all began when Terry wrote a script about a young woman named Grace…
When a well-known film director dies, Grace, his estranged daughter, decides to organize a memorial retrospective of his films.
While examining his life and work, her father’s films begin to influence Grace in profound and disturbing ways. She starts to piece together a picture of the man, but in doing so, uncovers destructive patterns in his life and in his “cinema novels” that mirror Grace’s own recent self-destructive behavior.
Is she piecing together a portrait of a stranger or an accurate picture of her father, or, is it Grace herself she’s seeing, projected back at 24 frames per second?
THE CAST (SO FAR):
Lauren Lee Smith is GRACE
Jennifer Beals is CLEMENTINE
Ben Cotton is BEN
Kett Turton is ADAM
Katharine Isabelle is CHARLOTTE
Gabrielle Rose is SOPHIE
Catherine Michaud is YOUNG SOPHIE
Jerry Wasserman is CHARLES RUSSELL
WHY DO WE NEED YOUR HELP?
In order to maintain complete creative control, we have to fully control the financial side of the production. Rather than partner with commercial groups or companies with agendas of their own, Terry and Lauren put every dollar they could together and decided to make the film their way.
Art before commerce.
Who is going to help support a film made for the love of cinema by our team, led by writer/director Terry Miles and actor/producer Lauren Lee Smith?
We’re hoping you.
We're hoping you love independent cinema.
We're making this film no matter what, but we want to make the very best film we possibly can.
Every single dollar you contribute goes directly onto the screen to make the film better.
By supporting this film, we are becoming a community. Crowdfunding is a beautiful reflection of the collective spirit of independent film.
WHAT WE NEED
Our leadership group are donating their time, effort, and a large portion of the cash budget, but we still need a bit more to get this film onto the screen in the best shape possible. 100% of the money raised on IndieGoGo will go directly onto the screen for:
- Camera/Equipment rental
- Cast/Crew wages
- Set Dec
- Fake TV show/interview we need to film
HELP SPREAD THE WORD!
We know there are people out there interested in arthouse festival cinema, people interested in films for grownups, people keen to support the telling of interesting stories, the type of stories we just don’t see often enough on screen anymore.
We need your help to bring Cinemanovel to life.
Please help us, by donating whatever you can. We appreciate every donation, no matter how big or small, even if you just pass our link along.
Thanks so much for your support!
PS: This reward is STILL AVAILABLE! Your name, as EXECUTIVE PRODUCER in the opening credits, SINGLE CARD!
