A New Short Film By Bryan McManus: “Where We Call Home”
22 Feb, 2012 - Meaghan Ritchey
Consider supporting “Where We Call Home” on Kickstarter.
It’s a story about the ‘right kind of wrong’ and a developing a sense of place.
Where We Call Home
WHY Why this story now? We believe that home, real home, is increasingly important (and sadly absent) in a world that is disconnected from a sense of place. We think it is best to touch on this theme with a narrative, because story is the language of the heart.
With your help! Our budget is going to pay our cast and crew, rent equipment, pay location fees, post production costs, and distribute the film to film festivals. To do all this, and do it well – we’re going to need 5,250 clams (assuming one clam equals one dollar). Thank you so much for taking time to look at our project, and for your consideration!
Where We Call Home is a film we’re making because we believe it’s important to have a place to call home. Our main characters take us there – they fix-up and beautify a house, to make it functional, lovely and meaningful. Their love for a slow and simple way of life, and their attention to the details, transforms them and the house into a warm, vibrant, inviting home. That is – until the homeowner shows up – and he wasn’t expecting company.
I have been very fortunate to have my senior thesis film, The Noble Earth, from the Savannah College of Art and Design’s Film and Television Program, honored as the best experimental film of 2010 at SCAD, and it’s also been screened at the Offshoot Film Festival, and will be screened at the Big Sky Doc Fest. It’s still doing a festival run too!
