Not every Kickstarter campaign is actually worth your time, but when real talent is involved, you should take notice. And for fans of independent cinema and upcoming talent like Chris Abbott, Josh Mond, and Kid Cudi, the campaign for the movie James White is an opportunity to help a film that has nothing but potential. Here is the official synopsis for the film:
JAMES WHITE, the new feature film from filmmaking trio Borderline Films (Afterschool, Martha Marcy May Marlene, Simon Killer), stars Christopher Abbott in a frenetic coming of age story about a young New Yorker struggling to take control of his reckless, self destructive behavior in the face of momentous family challenges.
The purpose of this film is to explore a really rich, close relationship between a single mother and her son. It's now being brought to life by an amazing cast, starring Christopher Abbot (Girls, Martha Marcy May Marlene), Scott “Kid Cudi” Mescudi(How to Make It in America, Need For Speed), Tony & Emmy Award Winner Cynthia Nixon (Sex and the City, Rabbit Hole), Ron Livingston (Office Space, Drinking Buddies), David Call (Tiny Furniture, Smash), and Mackenzie Leigh (The Good Wife, Deception).
Director Josh Mond and producers Antonio Campos and Sean Durkin are looking for help getting the movie through post-production. The movie has already been filmed, but there is still the editing, sound design, and music rights to take care of. In addition to starring in the film, Cudi is also working on the score as well, so fans should definitely keep up with this movie. You can check out the Kickstarter page for James White here.
