#1 Mobile Africa

Mobile Africa Trailer

Head over to our Kickstarter campaign to back this project!

African innovation has not received the global recognition it deserves. The continent is teeming with entrepreneurs and innovators developing new products, apps, and technology solutions that aim to improve lives at home and abroad.

Mobile Africa is a film project documenting the extraordinary rise of mobile technology across Africa and its impact on the continent's new generation of tech entrepreneurs. The documentary explores how mobile phones are lifting millions out of poverty, increasing access to information on a vast scale, and supercharging entrepreneurship across the continent.

Supporting this project will help shine a light on African innovation and advocate for increased investment in the continent’s technology sector.

#2 51 States || A Dystopian Thriller

51 States Kickstarter

This is "51 States Kickstarter" by 51 States on Vimeo, the home for high quality videos and the people who love them.

51 States will be the first film from Writer/Director Cassandra Virdee. She has a very unique voice and lots of authentic stories to tell and I’m excited to be working with her and her producer David Giles to bring their first film to the screen. Cass spends her days as a draughtsman, with recent credits including Wonder Woman, Electric Dreams and Sense8. David's days are spent in sound, working most recently on Solo: A Star Wars Story and Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Together they have written 51 States, a short film with great visual scope and a message that is both current and poignant in today’s world. It challenges racism right at the core and I believe can be an important voice for anti-racism on the short film circuit around the world.

Support the film @ the following link:

#3 ‘Lady’ – a short student film

'Lady' - a short student film

Set in a visually heightened land of peculiar characters, 'Lady' tells the story of a young girl who disguises herself as her recently deceased grandmother in order to avoid being sent into foster care.

She manages to fool the blind cross-dressing neighbour Clarence and tenacious social worker Laureen, but being an adult is harder than she first thought.

She is tired of being alone, and deeply misses Grandma. Inspired by the stories of heaven she been told throughout her life, Lady decides to take a giant leap of faith, and building a pair of mechanical wings, goes off to get her grandmother back.

This quirky dark tale explores how we discover our identity, cling on to familiarity, and interpret reality in a world where things are often not what they seem.

#4 #TheBlueberryFarmer

#TheBlueberryFarmer

Ashland City, TN--Filmmaker Valerie Whitcomb started a Kickstarter campaign which is currently running December 17 through January 13, 2018 in promotion of her feature film, The Blueberry Farmer. The campaign already raised a quarter of its goal in the first 3 days and will be joining the 24k+ successful film campaigns already on the most popular crowdfunding platform.

According to Whitcomb, the documentary is about how an amazing man named Bernie Ellis saved his farm, saved his own life, and continues to fight for social justice and the legalization of medical cannabis to this day.

“This film is also about changing hearts and minds and changing the law. It is time to overturn the prohibition of a plant,”  Whitcomb states definitively.  “It is time to recognize the benefits of medical cannabis plants that can help a lot of people. The most powerful way to influence people is by actions and by telling stories. It is my hope that by telling Bernie’s story, it can add to this conversation and help bring change in our drug laws in this country.”

In a story well worthy of telling, beginning in a former moonshine holler in the hills of Tennessee, Bernie Ellis is whose story it really is.  A man once called by the Nashville press, “Tennessee’s favorite felon,” he has endeared himself to hundreds of people in his community over the years that have come to know his story and love him, the thread that goes through the story, from beginning to end.

Bernie was bush hogging a pasture in 2002 when he noticed a helicopter circling above him. When it lowered to just over the treetops in a tight circle, he knew his life was about to change forever. Trace View farm was raided by the police that day and about 7 pounds of usable plants were confiscated as evidence.  For almost 15 years, Bernie had been growing medical cannabis.  Besides using it himself for his own ailments, including a degenerative spine and fibromyalgia, he was providing it for free to terminal AIDS and cancer patients that he knew or were referred to him. This fact is due to an interesting twist in The Blueberry Farmer story.

After admitting that the cannabis plants were his, Bernie went from earning over $100,000 per year in his field to living on food stamps unable to find work due to his arrest record.  But instead of giving up, he reinvented himself as an organic blueberry farmer. As you enjoy a meal at many of Nashville’s fine dining establishments, Bernie’s blueberries will probably be on the dessert menu.

At this time, the priority is with seeking funding on the Kickstarter website where more information may be found at www.theblueberryfarmer.com

#5 Hero (A short film about sacrifice)

Hero (A short film about sacrifice)

Hero. What does that mean? What do you think of when you hear it? The word hero takes on a whole different meaning when looked at in a different light. Heroes are the ones that sacrifice for our good without us sometimes even knowing it. Who expect nothing in return even though they give you everything.The story of "Hero" follows a girl named Grace. She lives with her dad and brother outside Nashville Tennessee. Her dad raises her and her brother, and teaches them many life lessons that would apply later in their lives. The story shows how important relationships are with your family, and that heroes don't always have to save the world. Sometimes, people are to quick to put a specific definition on the word, and the team at CITC Productions wants to put a different perspective on what a hero can be. We want to bring the story to life with stunning visuals, and engaging characters.

A man amidst a divorce suspects that his wife and child are conspiring against him. Depicted with the precision of realistic fiction, the simplistic plot of The Metal West combines elements of suspense with those of existentialist cinema, to create a mediation on work, intimacy, and childhood.

#10 Still Young – A Powerful Short Film about War, Family & Loss

Still Young - A Powerful Short Film about War, Family & Loss

Marcos Spalding is raising funds for Still Young - A Powerful Short Film about War, Family & Loss on Kickstarter! A touching drama about a troubled ex soldier and a shy young boy. A story of tragedy, redemption, love and loss.

The Film

An ex soldier riddled with the guilt of his biggest mistake, and a troubled young boy who doesn’t know where he fits in the world. The two find themselves connected, as the death of the boys father lays on the hands of the ex soldier, who’s mistake cost the man his life.

Its the story of a symbiotic relationship. Two very different individuals, struggling to understand each other. They slowly come to realise they both need each other.

We're mixing some genres. We have some intense action sequences, and then intimate, thought provoking and emotional scenes between our two leads. Throughout the film, we are drip fed a broken memory of the terrible event that took place in the invasion of Iraq. These sequences are being shot in a military training facility, designed to recreate Iraq and the intense scenarios or a war-torn town. These war scenes are balanced with beautiful, picturesque sequences on the cliffs or Swanage.

These cinematic sequences help tell this heartwarming, heartbreaking story of love and loss. An important film, with an important message behind it.

#12 The Henchman Audacious Idea

I've written a screenplay specifically for Will Ferrell to star in (which is, quite frankly, hilarious). In short, it's about an average family-man who inadvertently becomes a henchman for a charismatic billionaire. He gets caught up in a comical and stereotypical shootout (think James Bond vs 20 henchmen). Shocked and confused by the event, he attempts to implement changes in safety and training procedures which ultimately see him becoming an integral part to his boss' operations. He then finds himself caught in a moral struggle somewhere between right and wrong in his own mind. If you want to know more about the story line, click to check out the YouTube synopsis.

What are the funds for? Well, I don't want to go down the traditional methods of trying to get a movie made, so I'm looking to get the public behind a drive to get the screenplay to Will Ferrell. For that to happen, I need to create a large social-media following on Facebook and Instagram for The Henchman. I've already embarked on the path to build the profile of the film and now I need to take the campaign up a notch. The beauty is that if the social-media campaign works, it doubles as a marketing campaign for the film - before it has even been made. Click to check out The Henchman Film on Facebook and Instagram. To give you an idea of the traction, there has been a 300% rise in Facebook followers in the last 30 days and an exponential increase in page and post interactions.

#13 Puffs: Live Off-Broadway

Puffs, or: Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic is the hit off-Broadway comedy that has been playing to sold out audiences in New York for over two years. The show was created by a group of friends on a shoestring budget at the Peoples Improv Theater. Since then, it has been seen by almost 30,000 people as it's continued its journey from the PIT, to the Elektra, and now to the esteemed New World Stages, also home to Avenue Q and Jersey Boys. Because the show was created by a group of Puffs ourselves, we are grateful the show has struck a chord with so many people.
