LOS ANGELES, March 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Proving that more is merrier, actor Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite, Blades of Glory) and director Nicholas Peterson (MuM, Dark Mind) turn to crowdsourced funding website Kickstarter to raise funds for a new short film titled "Drained."
"Crowdsource funding strikes Nick and me as a fresh new way to fund bold, filmmaker-driven films in the future. So we're testing it out to see where it takes us," says Heder.
Heder will draw on his background in animation to serve as producer of this cautionary tale that combines stop-motion animation techniques and a digital background with live actors to tell the powerful story of a woman gradually crushed by the destructive forces of an abusive relationship.
"Through Kickstarter, we hope to fund a film that is bigger than each individual's contribution," explains Peterson. "For as little as one dollar, people who are passionate about film can help put story to screen."
