I will admit
that Seed & Spark is new to me, but for those of you out there who haven’t
heard of it, it’s another crowd fundraising tool like Indiegogo and Kickstarter
to help filmmakers raise money to realize their dreams.
So if you’re
a filmmaker with a dream, Seed & Spark might be another way for you to go, to
make your dream a reality.
And one filmmaker
who has done that is Los Angeles-based Angel
Kristi Williams, a Baltimore native
and who received her MFA graduate degree in filmmaking from Columbia College in Chicago in 2012, and the writer and director of a wonderfully moving short film, The Christmas Tree.
Williams has returned to her native city to start work on her new film project Charlotte, about two young 13 year old
black girls who are best friends, trying to find out where they fit in the
world, like so many young girls their age.
was the last time you saw a film like that in which the central characters
were two black girls in an urban city, and not the usual spoiled white
girls in the suburbs?
has a goal of raising $11,000 and has created a Seed &
Spark campaign to make her goal for her worthwhile project.
