Produce a Film for Alex Cox
Severely underappreciated filmmaker Alex Cox
needs your help. His latest project, Searchers 2.0
, is all set to role out, but it needs money. Cox is no stranger to the perils of the international co-production: his masterpiece Three Businessmen
(1998) was partially financed by a Dutch philosopher, while his adaptation of Death and the Compass
(1996) is a co-production of three countries. His latest blog post
details the current status of his latest film. For the low, low price of $130,000+, you finance roughly half of his movie! Smaller chunks of "producer points" are also available.
This project will likely go one of two ways. On the one hand, it could (if successful), illustrate new potential avenues for aspiring filmmakers and those willing to act as patrons. On the other, it could have 50+ associate producers and have credits that read like the list of onering.net fans on the Lord of the Rings
films. Though Cox does have his fans (I am one of them, and continue to contend that he is one of the most consistently engaging contemporary filmmakers), he probably does not have enough with that kind of money. Here's hoping that he finds that rich venture capitalist with an eye for quality and a heart.
