Help Intrepid Bring Movie Monster to Victoria!
Intrepid Theatre is bringing an exciting new Halloween-themed interactive film installation for families to Victoria that is like nothing we’ve ever done before, but we need your help to make it happen. We want to make Movie Monster affordable for underprivileged families, while also allowing you, our supporters to come experience Movie Monster for yourself (either at the Movie Monster for Adults opening or the family friendly days, see the ‘perks’ on the side for details).
What the heck is Movie Monster?
Monster Movie is spooky DIY film adventure for kids and families that allows YOU to become the star of your own Monster Movie… as the monster! Children craft their own scary monster personae and costume, design their set and then star in their very own monster movie, which they can watch back in a VIP screening room. Movie Monster is about using the allure of movie magic to deconstruct monster archetypes allow kids to overcome their fear of ‘scary’ movies. Plus it’s just a whole lot of fun!
So how can I help make this happen?
Lots of families in Victoria don’t have big piles of dough to pay for entertainment for their children and we aim to make Movie Monster affordable so everyone can experience it, regardless of their income. We have subsidized the cost of tickets, but Movie Monster ain’t cheap – it will cost us $15,000 to bring it out to Victoria, so in order to make this happen we need to raise $5,000 to supplement our existing funding and help get the cameras rolling.
Movie Monster for Adults
We know that you love live theatre and that you dig what we do. We also know that even grownups like to embrace their inner Peter Pan occasionally – hell, who doesn’t like jumping in the bouncy castle at FringeKids for Adults? So in order for you to see how your hard earned dollars are making a difference, we are inviting donors of $30 or more to an exclusive Movie Monster ADULTS ONLY launch on Mon Oct 29. The only way to get your hot little hands on an invite to this sweet event is if you are a Movie Monster indiegogo supporter.
Tomorrow’s artists and arts lovers are today’s children
“Intrepid’s efforts represent a case study in how to build an audience that keeps supporting the arts, from childhood on.” – Boulevard Magazine
We want to make sure the next generation thinks that entertainment is more than just video games and iphone apps. We’re looking ahead to the Fringe and arts audiences of tomorrow. We want to build a brighter future for performing arts in our fine city.
Why Monster Movie?
We often present live performance that crosses different art disciplines, and believe the current trend towards installation-based shows where the audience member isn't just a watcher, but an active participant or even a performer, is something Victorians shouldn’t miss out on. Movie Monster introduces young people to theatre (and in this case, filmmaking) as creators and collaborators, and having that "behind the scenes" experience will add to their enjoyment of going to plays in the future - or even inspire them to make up their own.
