From time to time, I’ll be suggesting interesting film projects you might find worth backing. Crowdsourcing is a fantastic way for filmmakers to make up a budget shortfall, gauge interest or make a dream come true.

Tommy gives backIn the case of Eat Me, a project by Adrian A. Cruz, the issue is completing the film and making it the best possible project it can be. Based on the play by Jacqueline Wright, who also stars in the film, it revolves around Tommy, a despondent woman who attempts suicide on the same night Bob breaks into her house. Though the film contains brutality and difficult themes, it is, ultimately, a story of redemption. The film also features Brad Carter and Michael Shamus Wiles.

“We are exploring how to use the camera in a confined space — without use of time compression or change in location,” says Cruz. “And still be visually vibrant and arresting, pushing our creativity and testing our ability to work with actors on difficult subject matter.

With shooting completed, the director says they are “focusing on exploring the possibilities of the sound design and editing to take an audience to the very limit of their emotional safety zone, push them over the edge and lead them back.” He also hopes to schedule two additional days of shooting to complete exterior and pick-ups. Any additional funds will be used to plus the film with color correction and a handful of video effects. Take a look at their campaign video and pitch in if you’re interested.
