Kickstart This: Independent Projects Worth A Donation

Since the beginning of Kickstarter and IndieGoGo, there are have been so many attempted creative projects that it can be hard to decide which ones are worth your donation. For every success story, there are probably dozens, maybe hundreds of failed projects that never got off the ground. Or maybe should have never gotten off the ground.

Here’s one documentary that I for one would love to see: YOU FOLLOW: A Search for One’s Past.

Originally titled My India 09, YOU FOLLOW is a documentary film project that was started in 2009 by a group of four friends who traveled to Goa, India to find Nishas birth mother. It’s been two years since that visit. Now armed with leads, Nisha must travel back to complete her personal journey and to finish the film. Nisha and a new film crew plan on heading back to Goa this January and could use some help.

This doc has been getting a lot of buzz and is even shortlisted for the Oscars! BATTLE FOR BROOKLYN is an interesting Kickstarter project because the film has already been made. They’re raising the money purely to help with publicity and getting it in front of those who could make its award dreams a reality. If you’re not into “gambling” on an unproven film concept, this is the project for you.

Don’t know what to with your Christmas/Hannukah money this year? Instead of buying another unneeded fedora (or whatever your fashion weakness may be) consider giving the gift of just a few dollars to help these independent filmmakers realize their dreams!

Know of another Kickstarter or IndieGoGo project worthy of  a mention? Drop a link in the comments and maybe they’ll be featured here on Screen Invasion!
