Independent filmmaker Signe Baumane has released her latest work in progress trailer for the feature "Rocks In My Pockets", her personal story about depression. Sometimes sad - sometimes funny.
Here are her own comments about the new film, and her request for comments - and possibly donations to finish the film.
"Rocks In My Pockets" is my first feature.
I used to call it "a funny film about depression" but it is more complicated than that (funny, sad and then -funnysadfunny; honestly, how depression can be just funny?).
If I had to put the description of the film in one sentence
it would probably be very dark and dramatic:
"A silent killer (depression) from my family's secret past is trying to get me. Will I survive this fight?"
We just finished (3 hours, 32 minutes, 12 seconds and 6 frames ago)
a trailer for the work in progress and I wanted to share it with you:
I think I told you we are going to have a Kickstarter campaign in September but things didn't pan out as intended
(too busy with making the film ), although we do need money for postproduction, now we have to postpone the the campaign till January 2013.
It would be great if you could click on 'donate' button on the film's website:
But if you can't it would be amazing if you could help to spread the word about the film, show the trailer to your friends, post it on forums,
help us to connect with the mental health community, or share with us your experience/advise on how to run a successful Kickstarter campaign.
Or simply give us a feedback on the trailer -
1) does it intrigue you? does it make you want to see the film?
2) how does it flow? is it too long? too short?
3) do you have enough context to connect with the trailer/film's message?
4) do you understand who these creatures are - one in the water, the other in forest?
5) do you care for the 4 women?
We are going to make another trailer in January, for the finished film
and we want to learn from your feedback.
If you want to read about the making of it, here's a bit on my blog:
