I woke up this morning after a fantastic night out with friends (both new and old) in the mood to cuddle up, watch some bad television and read the New York Times Magazine on my Blackberry.
And thank goodness I did.
I found an article on Jacob Krupnick and the amazing film he is creating. Rooting from a freelance promo video for a footwear show, which casting was posted on Craigslist with the promise of pizza as payment, he found Anne Marsen.
Anne is a dancer. A righteous, epic dancer.
Because of this, Krupnick thought she would be the perfect person for his next project - a homage to the mash-up. Using the entire "All Day" album by Girl Talk (download immediately - you have no excuse it is available FREE on GT's website http://www.illegal-art.net/allday/ )
Anne danced her way through New York. After much editing Krupnick posted an 8 minute promo video in order to raise money for the entire project. The video "Girl Walk // All Day" gained followers at an astounding rate and within 6 days, using Kickstarter.com, Krupnick was able to raise $14,000 for the project.
I have included the "Girl Walk // All Day" video below for your viewing pleasure as well as a link to the original article
ps. You can still back the project on Kickstarter.com I did. A $50.00 donation got me not only the satisfaction of supporting an awesome project but also pretty sweet perks like this ..
Receive a limited edition poster (image coming soon!) + "Associate Producer" credits in the film and on the website + DVD + 1 invite to the opening + project updates.
pps. I AM AN ASSOCIATE PRODUCER OF SOMETHING. Ding Dong!
