In the last year or so, Kickstarter has become a more and more viable way for independent filmmakers to make their dreams come true, and as Zach Braff and the cast of “Veronica Mars” taught us, the platform isn’t exclusively for amateurs.
Their project is called “Snowy River,” and it’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. The film, which takes in Brooklyn, tells the story of two friends, who are bound by a terrible childhood secret. (Radcliffe has already mastered the accent he needs to bring the character to life, so a lot of the work is done.)
This being Kickstarter, you probably want to know about the perks. What will you get if you donate to “Snowy River”? Well, Radcliffe and DeHaan are very famous and very well-connected, so if you help them out, they’ll help you out. The one perk that’s specified in the video is an evening of watching television with none other than Alan Rickman. Think about all the dry comments he’ll make about the Kardashians!
Basically, it’s up to you to make this dream come true for Radcliffe and DeHaan, but mostly Radcliffe because he seems to be the one with the big ideas, like hardcore sex scenes in the movie. He’s already started the casting process, and the Kickstarter video gives us a look at “Twilight” star Ashley Greene’s audition tape.
Make “Snowy River” a reality by watching the latest episode of “After Hours” and donating to the Kickstarter campaign (which actually doesn’t exist).
