The Micro-Indie That Could, Bellflower was one of the most fiercely debated movies of last year; but one of my personal favourites. Love it or hate it, you have to admire the incredible risks by first time writer-producer-director-editor and star Evan Glodell, who tells a completely unorthodox story in an altogether reckless manner. Fans of the film will be happy to know, the filmmakers are back with their sophomore effort, and they are looking to you for additional funding.
Coatwolf Productions, the team behind Bellflower, has officially launched the kick-off crowdfunding campaign for their forthcoming release, Chuck Hank and The San Diego Twins – a project described as “influenced heavily by ‘80s action films and side-scrolling fighting games.” The film is written and directed by Jonathan Keevil (the man who scored, produced and edited Bellflower), and stars the Bellflower duo of Tyler Dawson and Evan Glodell. The team has released some test footage, and concept art for the film’s more action heavy scenes.
With the success of Bellflower, they’ve decided do it all over again, by working outside of the Hollywood studio system, and keeping complete artistic control over the film. The movie is currently in post production, but the filmmaking team is looking for your support, to help with the bigger action set pieces. Thanks to Indiegogo on their official website, you can donate today, for as little as $5. Check out the awesome video they’ve created below. Enjoy!
Here’s the official synopsis:
A turf war has been raging in Oldtown for generations. On one side, The Syndicate – an evil gang of crank-head misfits, who has been set on muscling the San Diego family out of the parcel of land they own in the center of town. On the other side, the San Diego family: Tony and Johnny – twin brothers, and their sister Salsa are the last of a bloodline that stretches back for generations. Their mother, father and brothers were all brutally murdered in a violent clash with The Syndicate years earlier. With their neighborhood becoming increasingly fearful, The Syndicate puts into action another evil advance on their family’s fading legacy by kidnapping Salsa – all hell breaks loose. The twins and their best friend Chuck Hank must decide whether to hand over the deed to their families land in order to save their sister or fight, the final fight!
