Move Over Buttons, It's Movie Monday Today

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.

Want to help them out?

Become a backer - if you become a backer of the film, you're pledging a dollar amount through Kickstarter.  If  you have an Amazon account, your sign up is super simple so check it out here: 

Help spread the word - follow Tilt the movie on Twitter here:  Tilt on Twitter 
and visit the blog here:  Tilt on Wordpress 
Tell your friends!  Be sure to check out some of the moviettes on the site too, they're great.

And wish these artists luck while you're at it.

Happy Monday!

Brainerd icon - the scariest animatronic Paul Bunyan ever, terrorizing small children for generations.

The movie sounds very interesting.

I so remember that Paul Bunyan statue from when Brendon was little. He just couldn't figure out how Paul knew his name as we were coming into the park. Still pretty funny when we remember that visit.

Kar - I know it's wrong of me, but I giggle at the throngs of crying children left in Paul's wake. My oldest was terrified the first time Paul raised his shaky hissing arm and said "Helloooooooo". eeh hee!

Thanks for writing about our film. We're so lucky to have you as a supporter of our, and of arts in our community!

First of all, thank you so much for highlighting our film. Second, we can't wait to see animatronic Paul Bunyan. While we're not small children, we have no doubt that he's going to scare us silly.

Phil, Julie, and Jessica - you're welcome! And def. do check out Paul if you can. Seriously. Terrifying.

oooh a movie in your hometown! awesome possum! i live in LA, so there are a lot of movie shoots going on all over the place, but it doesn't have the personal feel of smaller and more intimate places, ya know? good stuff.

Margie - I'd love to see them be able to do it.

Linz - it's super cool, especially for a town and um....rural as ours.
