Want to help two cool and creative women make a short film about Alaska, oil addiction, native culture, and the secrets of family? Course you do, and so do I.
The film is called “The Pipeline” and it is being written and produced by Caitlin Kazepis and Alexis Iacono. I met Alexis at Sundance 2013, when we were launching Blackfish, and was impressed by her energy and the wide range of projects she was engaged in, from horror to World Of Warcraft. She and Kazepis go way back and decided to collaborate on a film project. Voila. The Pipeline (that is their Kickstarter trailer above).
I always love it when anyone just sets out a goal and goes for it. And Kazepis and Iacono have launched a Kickstarter campaign to get the funding they need to turn their script into a film. They are trying to raise $25,000, and with less than a week to go they need to raise about another $10,000.
How about helping them get there? Film-making needs more women producing and creating, and supporting a project like this is one way to help make that happen. Every donation, no matter the amount, will make a difference.
I’ve signed on to do what I can to help The Pipeline get made, and while there is a long way between a Kickstarter campaign and settling back into a screening room chair to see a finished film, I have no doubt that Kazepis and Iacono will get there, and produce something both interesting and special.
