Kickstarter: Rona Mark’s Objects Attack
Filmmaker Rona Mark has started a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for her latest project, Objects Attack, a movie about a tortured woman who discovers that inanimate objects are conspiring against her. And, if that wasn’t bad enough, her boyfriend has been replaced by an exact duplicate who doesn’t even recognize her. Visit the official Kickstarter page here!
Mark is employing a unique method to produce this film. Well, unique in our modern digital age. To shoot the movie, she is using Super 8 black and white reversal film to give it, in Mark’s own words, “a warm, gritty and a little sleazy” look. She is also only employing a miniscule crew of three people.
While Mark has already found a large donor to cover the film stock and processing, she is raising the funds to pay for a high-def transfer of the film, which will then be edited digitally without any loss of picture quality. Below, you can see some sample footage of Super 8 film that has had a low-res transfer.
Mark’s first feature length film, Strange Girls, will be released on DVD on July 26 by Vanguard Cinema. The Underground Film Journal reviewed Strange Girls back in 2008 when it was sent to the site by the Spooky Movie Film Festival. It was one of our favorite films of that year and we’re thrilled it’s finally coming out for everybody to see.
