Kickstarter Festival at Rooftop Films

The 2nd Annual Kickstarter Film Festival last night was a huge success! Hosted by Rooftop Films at The Old American Can Factory, the event sold out within hours and the range of work screened was impressive. I was there to support my colleague and good friend, Amy Finkel whose documentary film ‘Furever‘ recently raised over $10,000 (double it’s pledged goal) towards production. I can’t say how thrilled I am to see this project going forward.

Take a look at this preview to see how far it’s come …


The last project shown was Girl Walk // All Day, which ended in a live dance performance and was a crowd pleaser for sure. This piece, currently in the making, will be “an epic 71-minute dance music video set to All Day, the new album by mash-up musician Girl Talk (aka Gregg Gillis).” The project idea came about from the “desire to expand the boundaries around the idea of the traditional music video, which usually spans the length of a single track. This album-length piece will feature a talented group of dancers across a range of public and private spaces around New York City, turning the city’s sidewalks and obstacles into part of an evolving improvisational dance routine.”

Here’s a peek at the work in progress…
