JOEN: A Stolen Movie

joen a stolen movieWe usually don’t post Kickstarters, but this one moved my cold heart. Even though it’s already been funded, you can throw your disposable cash in the direction of Wyatt Krutsch ’18:

Hey Everybody!

My camera was stolen two weeks ago in Ecuador while shooting a short film about a gringo named Joen starring Ames Ward.

SO, we’re launching a Kickstarter to save our short movie… the page is called ~~ JOEN: a stolen movie ~~.

The memories in the camera are irreplaceable, but our Joen’s we hope are not. We couldn’t complete filming in Ecuador. But, in the next days we began to realize that there are no obstacles, only opportunities. And we’ve found ourselves in the middle of an opportunity to evolve the equipment we use to tell our stories.

Joen’s story has also unexpectedly become the story of the making of “JOEN”. To share this process with you is a true thrill and a real special opportunity. “JOEN” is bigger than we could’ve conceived thanks to your involvement. We’re so excited about this new creative direction and moving forward on this project. We just need your help to restore and refresh the tools to do so!

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE SPREAD THE GOOD WORD, SHARE THE PAGE AND “JOEN” CAN GET MADE!

Love,
Wyatt
