If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Here's the introduction from their indiegogo account (because i really suck bad at summaries)
"Remember when Black movies didn't neccesarily star a dude in a fat suit and a wig? Or have major plot twists timed to Gospel numbers for no apparent reason? No? Damn...
Well believe it or not there was a time when "Black Art-House" was a thing. When movies like Do The Right Thing, Hollywood Shuffle, and Boyz In Da Hood were breaking box office records as well as making us laugh, cry, and think in ways movies hadn't before.
The humble producers of DEAR WHITE PEOPLE, a satire about being a black face in a white place, long to bring those days back. But we can't do it without you!
Here's the deal...we're looking to raise seed money that will go a tremondously long way in securing the capital we'll need to produce our million dollar indie feature. With our trailer, script and your help, we believe we can bring this exciting piece of cinema to life! Join us, won't you?"
I discovered that project because of an article on Badass Digest.
I thought I'd share because i found the trailer funny, smart and original and i would love to see that movie made and because since this is a place for movie lovers, it seemed like the right place to share that.
I'm not really sure what to make of this. Is it a comedy satire about how ignorant comedy satires are? It seems counter productive in this sense. On the other hand, it's actually been a really long time since I've seen a clever Indie Comedy.
