|That's Brainerd there in the middle!|
Sorry folks, no Button Monday today. Instead I'd like to introduce you to a project that is planned for my town, Brainerd Minnesota.
I bumped into fellow Brainerd resident Phil Holbrook and his movie-to-be, Tilt, on Twitter. What started as a nightmare is now being made into cinema by Phil, filmmakers/screenwriters Julie Keck and Jessica King and Cinematographer Jeremy Doyle .
How exciting! A movie in my town that isn't related to Fargo!
Here's a little about the film, from the Tilt website:
THE STORY: Paul hasn't connected with his daughter for over 10 years, but when their world is turned upside down by an unthinkable act, he has to decide what's more important: doing the right thing or setting things right? TILT is about revenge & forgiveness, betrayal & redemption, and second chances...small town style.
Cool, right? Well, what I also found cool was that this group is raising the funding for the film themselves. With help from backers, as of this morning they are only $4000. short of their goal. They have a deadline of August 6th to meet their goal. I hope they make it.
