A friend of mine (and a talented filmmaker), Chris Hansen (here are my reactions to his previous two films, Clean Freak and American Messiah), is currently planning his third feature-length film, An Affair, a drama that explores what happens when two married strangers meet up at a lonely motel and develop an instant attraction. Like many indie filmmakers, Chris is seeking to raise support for the film through Kickstarter, a crowdfunding website, where filmmakers can pitch their ideas and seek donations from people who are interested in seeing the film get produced. You can check out Chris’s pitch below.
According to Chris, An Affair was scripted in a highly-collaborative fashion with the two lead actors. Also worth noting, the film itself will be produced in part by his students at Baylor University. It looks like an engaging movie, and Chris has promised a number of gifts to thank you for your donation, so if you’re a fan of character-driven indie film, give Chris’s movie (or any number of Kickstarter projects) a look and consider supporting his film.
