Many of you probably saw a thesis film directed and created last year by Daniel Hymanson ’11 entitled “Slothman.” Daniel sent us this submission regarding fundraising for a new film he’s planning on making:
I’ve launched a fundraising campaign to start production on a movie called This House. This House blends documentary and fiction to explore the inimitable in-home installation work of Jackie Seiden, a Chicago-based artist and educator.
We begin in the attic, filled with pastel color and sun-soaked suitcases. We enter into the experience of a three-year-old girl in the 1930s, as she uncovers everything not supposed to be known and attempts to avoid an unbearable fear of abandonment. We descend to the basement, dark and filled with white Christmas lights. We enter into a fantasy world where the ever-three-year-old Ga Ga Goo Goo and her symbiotic soulmate Pig embark on a planet-wide journey to find their mother and father, who were swallowed up by a crevice while awestruck by the Northern Lights. In the journey from the attic to the basement, we also explore everything in between.
Any help with pledges or spreading the word would be greatly appreciated. Every little bit counts!
If you want to throw a few bucks Daniel’s way, he’d be most appreciative. You can do so at his Kickstarter page. There are only 29 days to go!
