Leslie Kwon, Rex Yau, and M.J. Corey set to making a short film based on the short story Rebound. The project took us to The Metropolitan Bar, where we've all had crazy Wednesday (girls) nights, and with an incredible cast, we made a film about heartbreak, sisterhood, Brooklyn, gayness, awkwardness, and angst that we are proud of. If you've ever tried really hard to feel less alone in a crowd at a bar, you'll feel this movie.
Now, in the post-production phase, we need a final push to be able to afford primarily sound mixing, but also festival fees, gifts for donors, printing, and a few high costs leftover from production.
We have perks, because we can't express the overflow of gratitude that we feel when you decide to help:
Free entrance to the screening party! Which is guaranteed to be wild, considering this is a film about an out of hand night on the town!
Posters! (Designed by our amazing DP, Rex Yau)
Beautiful postcards, designed by Cindy Ho, one of our leads (Rachel).
So many options.
The point is, we want you to be a part of this. This is a film about community. The desire for a community is was led our main character M.J. (played by ShaQuanna Williams) to the bar, the community is what we sought to honor in the film, the community is what MADE this film.
It's a funny and sad movie and it's going to go far in the realm of festivals; hopefully in the annals of great LGBT movies too. Being a part of this is a really good idea!
We appreciate your support so much. The influx of help in our first campaign bowled us over; it's what motivated us at 5 in the morning, when we were in the middle of shooting on a buggy patio in NYC summer heat, completely delirious and in love with what we were doing.
Please know that your decision to support this film will not go unnoticed; help to this project is unforgettable to us broke Brooklyn artists. Believe me, you will be giving a gift to a community that we love! We can't wait for you to see it!!!!!
