If the season of giving and holiday movies has you under its spell, head on over to the Kickstarter page for student film, Sea Odyssey, where you can indulge your appetite for both. Sea Odyssey won’t be out in time for Christmas, more like May 2014. But by pledging to support the short film, you'll score an inventive and charitable gift for someone special, and put into motion a project that has grabbed the attention and participation of award-winning visual effects company Fugo Studios.
The internship for high school students in Sea Odyssey's art department (donation $150) has my sister’s name written all over it. The DVD of the father-son themed flick (donation $25) are perfect for dad and brother. You have until Dec. 17 to nab these gifts and bragging rights to launching an inspiring indie film.
Learn more about Sea Odyssey and writer-director Adam Nelson (candidate for a B.F.A. in Film and Television) below. The Atlanta Film Festival (March 28-April 6) is touting Adam as a model for emerging filmmakers on its own Kickstarter page, which features more great gift ideas. Um, honey, that tour of Atlanta movie sets (donation $150) is right up my alley.
