Got an email today about a project on Kickstarter called Sincerely Camp Starlight being produced by David Shapiro for his NYU Tisch Thesis film.
Here is a log line for the film:
Inspired by L. Frank Baum’s “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz”
“After the sharp fragment of a fallen star descends into the picturesque Camp Starlight and transforms it into a world of wonder, delinquent camper Jonah must rescue his first love from the infamous Wicked Witch of Camp Starlight.”
This is going to be a really fun project to work on. The premise oft he story really lends itself to going wild with the art, wardrobe and makeup design. The writer/director David Shapiro’s inspiration for the project are classic kid’s on a journey films like E.T., The Goonies, and Stand By Me and that spirit is sure to carry over to production where we will shoot and live at a summer camp, most likely at the end of May, or early June. Our team is a mix of extremely talented Tisch alumni and students.
Since they are looking for funding – check out their pitch on Kickstarter here and let them know what you think.
