We’ve always liked to support the smaller projects and Josh Mond’s JAMES WHITE needs you to finish what they’ve started, and you can help via Kickstarter to get the post-production, editing, sounds design/mixing, and securing music rights side of the film completed!
We’re bringing this one to your attention for a couple of reasons. It’s not just because the team at Borderline Films already have an intelligent and powerful project history but mainly because we believe in these guys and the films they’re making…and want you to be a part of something unique.
Borderline Films, is made up of three filmmakers: Mond, Antonio Campos, and Sean Durkin. Ten years after founding Borderline as film students at NYU, their feature films have played at the Cannes Film Festival, Sundance Film Festival, New York Film Festival, and Toronto International Film Festival. They’ve been nominated for five Independent Spirit Awards, four Gotham Awards, and won Best Director at Sundance (Sean Durkin for the gloriously compelling MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE).
Check out the video for their new Kickstarter campaign to finish JAMES WHITE, and give you more insight into what they’re trying to achieve. There’s also a few brand new images from the production below and links of how to get involved!
JAMES WHITE is the first feature for Josh Mond and stars Christopher Abbott in a frenetic coming of age story about a young New Yorker struggling to take control of his reckless, self destructive behavior in the face of momentous family challenges.
The purpose of this film is to explore a really rich, close relationship between a single mother and her son. It’s now being brought to life by an amazing cast, starring Christopher Abbot (Girls, MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE), Scott “Kid Cudi” Mescud (How to Make It in America, NEED FOR SPEED), Tony & Emmy Award Winner Cynthia Nixon (Sex and the City, Rabbit Hole), Ron Livingston (OFFICE SPACE, DRINKING BUDDIES), David Call (TINY FURNITURE, Smash), and Mackenzie Leigh (The Good Wife, Deception).
