As you may have noticed, I am a fan of humorist/cartoonist/filmmaker Scott "The Disalmanacarian" Bateman. I've pledged to like three past kickstarters of his, and they all usually fail. But this one got tagged as a kickstarter.com "Project We Love".
His last film, "You, Your Brain, And You", was a mockumentary strongly influenced by underground experimental film. At one film festival, it won both Best Mockumentary and Best Arthouse, which promted Scott to say that that combination was exactly what he was going for. For his next film, he decided to lean much more heavily in the experimental direction. His idea was this: make an entire film out of clips only one second long.
Fortunately, he scaled back this idea from feature length, and the current plan is to make a ten minute short. The title is 600 Space Aliens
. 600 different people will be featured in still pictures or very short video clips, often altered with drawings or animation. And if you pledge at the $50 level... you can be a space alien! I have so pledged.
At higher donation levels you can be listed on IMDB as the Best Boy! Whatever that is. Or as a Grip.
It has five days and about 25% to go. Here is the kickstarter.
