If my hands, time and sanity can take me as far as I hope, you have a few posts to see about this within the next week.
This is an intro with some screens, links and video. I will soon make a post about my opinions on this so far, another about this work's unique way of production and then an interview post with the director, Yoon Jung Lee who, among other mainstream contribution, worked as a script supervisor for "The Good, The Bad, The Weird".
"Remember O Goddess" is an independent, crowd-funded film noir. It tells the story of a man who has lost his memory and is struggling to regain his past, when he meets someone who he thinks may be his lost love.
It stars Kim Jung Tae (Duelist, SIU, The Apprehenders and a lot more) and Choi Ara, a top model doing her acting debut with this film.
The first 25 minutes of the movie can be seen in its Kickstarer campaign. This means that, if funded, this would be the first globally crowd-sourced Korean independent movie. Ordinary folk like us will be the producers. Which is a big topic of thought and discussion, but I will leave that for a later post.
For now, here is an intro video for the funding, 3 stills and some links.
If you like what you see, FUND THIS MOVIE though Kickstarter! Any contribution counts. You can make a difference and help some talented people give us good entertainment that some mainstream cost-shit-loads-of-money-to-make-and-still-sucks productions don't!
The goal is $30,000. They are currently at $22,653 and we have 10 days to go. It's so close to getting made. If you don't know how pledging works, know that you are not actually giving any money at this point. If the movie reaches its goal and gets made, you will pay your contribution. If the funding does not make its mark, all pledges will be cancelled and so will all the effort that has been put in this from supportive people so far.
One final Kick can help this very promising work get made and make history.
