Movie Crowdfunding Campaign

Hello Video Angels,

Many of you will remember our former employee, Robert Doerr, who now lives in the Netherlands. He’s currently involved in an independent film production that’s raising funds through a crowdfunding campaign. Here’s how Robert describes the project:

“Two Truths and a Lie tells the story of a casual evening between friends that takes an unexpected turn when a mysterious stranger appears at the door. You can contribute to the production of this comedy/thriller by donating to the film’s IndieGoGo Crowdfunding campaign (https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/two-truths-and-a-lie-film-crowdfunding-campaign#/)! The campaign offers many rewards that allow you to be directly involved in the film’s production and be credited in the film and on IMDB. Among other things, you can be a funding producer, have your original art/music appear in key scenes in the film, be an official company sponsor, and even be one of the executive producers! Please consider supporting this exciting project and spread the word!”

Staff Picks

Alex says:
Anna Faris deserves the world for her deeply relatable performance in this and Gregg Araki's editing is perfect.

Amber says:
Agnes Varda never ceases to amaze me, and her artistic partnership with muralist and photographer, JR, perfects this documented journey around rural France. They travel in a van equipped with a photo booth which prints very large portraits on-the-spot, on the side of the vehicle. These photos, and the people they meet become inspiration for several large-scale murals, pasted individuals and places they want to honor along the way. The banter between the pair is quite comical at times, and somehow meaningful too. Bonus tip: We also have a blu-ray edition located in the french film section in an Agnes Varda box set where many great films await your discovery!
