Frank Kelly, the Irish director of the innovative documentary 140, is working on his next project, and he is once again relying on crowdsourcing for some help. You can become an Associate Producer on the dark crime thriller Derelict for as little as one dollar. Find out how after the break.
We covered Kelly’s previous crowdsourcing film 140 for the Newport Beach Film Festival (read my review here). In that documentary, Kelly got 140 people to shoot 140 seconds of footage at the exact same time through Twitter. It was definitely an interesting experiment, and he cut it together well. Now he’s moving on to fiction, but he’s looking for some help financing.
If you donate at least $1 (well, €1 really) to Frank Kelly’s Blog, you will get a credit, on screen, as an Associate Producer. Shooting starts in January, and if you donate, you’ll get regular updates on the film, as well as a chance to see an online premiere before anyone else.
Derelict is a dark crime thriller, about a gang of kidnappers who hold a bankers family hostage in a derelict building. One of the kidnappers takes the banker away to rob his bank, while the others stay behind with his family. As the night wears on tension rise between them, but that not all they quickly realise that they are not alone in the building.
