KICKSTARTER: KEITH MILLER’S “WELCOME TO PINE HILL”
On the heels of this week’s Slamdance lineup announcement, Welcome to Pine Hill, one of the films premiering in competition, has launched a new Kickstarter campaign. A verite, doc-narrative blend (and an alum of the 2011 IFP Narrative Labs), Pine Hill follows Shannon Harper, a former drug dealer who reexamines his past after receiving some life-altering news. Director Keith Miller has crafted an intimate, stirring, and emotionally authentic first feature; one that’s sure to have quite a life on the 2012 festival circuit. For now though, Miller and his team need your help. Per their Kickstarter page:
Keith Miller and Shannon Harper first met fighting over a lost puppy one late night in Brooklyn, NY. Inspired by the chance encounter and a range of true experiences they blurred reality and fiction to create a movie called WELCOME TO PINE HILL. We’re here to raise some last-minute funds to prepare PINE HILL for its World Premiere and to make sure Shannon can travel to see himself on the big screen for the first time.
You can contribute to Welcome to Pine Hill through January 17th. And be sure to check out their new Kickstarter video, which features clips from the film as well as some behind-the-scenes interviews with both Keith and Shannon:
