It should come as no surprise to you that I’m a bigger fan of independent, often low-budget, creative and unique movies than I am of the sort that Hollywood’s been churning out on a regular basis for the past few…decades. Yes, there’s definitely some new ideas floating around Hollywood, but too seldom do they make it to the big screen. In fact, it’s the littler screens that I think trump the big ones in terms of creative potency, and so whenever I see a promising independent film in need of public support, my attention is grabbed.
Today’s project, much like The Kick-Off itself, is in fact a series of projects. 12 to be precise. 12 short films in 12 months throughout 2012.
Daniel McCord is no stranger to film production, and has what appears to be a pretty neat filmography to back that up. This year, he’s hoping to produce a dozen short films including narratives, documentaries, music and perhaps an experimental film or two. Who could say no to that? Even better, the films will be hosted for all to see, as they come out.
For a mere $1, though, you can get updates on the films and get to see them before their official debut. A far better value than you’re likely to find at any multiplex. Buy your ticket to this year-long movie marathon before Feb 29.
