Support an Independent Film

Hey all! I’ve never had a post like this one before.

I wanted to take the opportunity to spread the news about an independent film, but who better to tell you than the filmmaker herself?

Before you check out the video, a couple things about Melanie:

  • Melanie was a college roommate of mine for one semester. She isn’t a stranger.
  • Melanie shares the same passion for making film that many of you have for writing about it.
  • Melanie already has some experience in the field, and among her experience, research, and understanding of film, I think she has great potential to create film.

Watch the video and get all the info on Melanie’s film, The Lilith Necklace, here.

Melanie never asked me to post about her project, much less to promote it. I chose to do this because I’m a big fan of film and even in this small, insignificant way, I’d like to lend a supporting hand to another person who loves film. You, too, can help support Melanie and her film, The Lilith Necklace, by giving as little as $5, or just by sharing the project with other fellow film friends.

Melanie’s also a blogger! If you’d like to learn more about her, check out her blog Grassroots Movement.

Thanks for reading! Do you know anyone who has a film he’s working on? Feel free to share it!

  1. Gobsmacked by anyone that tries to make a film. I’ve been involved with an independent film for the last two years called One By One. The director managed to get Brit comedy legend Rik Mayall from Blackadder, Drop Dead Fred etc in the cast and has completed a rough cut. It looks bloody fantastic and I think the plan is to try to get it to Cannes next year. Not sure if this will work but this is the facbook group if you fancy checking it out!

    I wish Melanie the best of luck with The Lilith Necklace and raising those funds!


    • Same here! Wow, that sounds like a lot of hard work, but fun too. Oh cool, you guys got Ben Feldman! Love him in that show, haha.

      Thanks for sharing it – I will definitely check out the page! Thanks for the well wishes. I’m sure appreciates it 🙂


  2. I think it’s great that you’re supporting indie films and filmmaker, I recently interviewed a local MN filmmaker myself to help promote his project. I always admired people who have the talent and tenacity to make their dreams happen, so best of luck to you Melanie!


    • Thanks, Ruth! It helps that I know her personally too 🙂 Everyone needs support from time to time. I will definitely pass on the well wishes to Melanie. Thanks for taking the time to read this, Ruth!
