In Ribbons: Let me tell you a story…

Once upon a time, in an era of spirographs and sheena dolls, when ‘Hey Jude’ was the hit song of the day, there lived a very little girl.

A creature of quietude and intensity, she looked to the grown-ups and found that they didn’t make any sense to her, with their secrets, their muffled conversations and their lengthy silences.

Not that she was a big talker herself, but she listened, a lot…

She liked to be in her room. Alone. This was her imagination place, where her doe-eyed teddy bears and smooth-skinned dolls listened patiently to her made-up stories, and starred centre-stage in her made-up games.

And then, one day, everything changed…

In Ribbons is a journey. A dark fairytale, a cautionary fable and a glimpse of social history that captures the zeitgeist of a time probably best left to history…

We are now into the second phase of our fundraising campaign to make this short film, written by yours truly and to be directed by the very talented Marie-Valerie Jeantelot. So far, we have raised $1090, which amounts to €817. Less Indiegogo charges of 9%,  the final amount raised during this first phase was €743. With a dedicated cast and crew willing to give their time and unique talents, we are eternally grateful to our supporters / donors who have already dug deep and helped us out with their contributions. Because of their generosity, already,  Marie-Valerie and her crew have been able to use some of this money to carry out a test shoot which resulted in the following new trailer:http://vimeo.com/58193801

We are now openly seeking donations again, no amount too small or too large, to make up the remainder of the €3,500 that we need to complete In Ribbons. The money will be used to pay cast and crew, and to cover insurance and hire of equipment, transport, catering, sets, costume and location fees.

If you have already given us some of your hard-earned cash, once again, we thank you. You are now fully-fledged members of the In Ribbons tribe…if you’d like to donate, we thank you in advance, and please do check out the goodies that could be winging your way, should you decide to help us out…
