I hope it will be different from anything you have seen. In particular the use of light.
I ran across an interesting film project and wanted to share it with you. Mark MacNicol is a novelist and playwright. Currently, he is raising money for a film with paranormal themes called Dreaded Light. Take a look at this interview excerpt, and be sure to watch the video. Good luck, Mark!
With two novels under his belt and several stage plays, Mark MacNicol is lending his talents to film, producing, writing and directing avant-garde feature, Dreaded Light, which he is funding through â€˜crowdinvestment.â€™
Mark spoke with The Fountain about the project, extending this experience to young offenders and how crowdinvesting is different to crowdfunding.
TF: A new film project, Dreaded Light, how exciting, what can we expect?
I hope it will be different from anything you have seen. In particular the use of light (one of the characters has a phobia of daylight). I also hope you will struggle to put it in a particular box/genre.
As the Producer Writer and Director it means I can take chances that I wouldnâ€™t be able to or allowed to under normal circumstances. Also authenticity of subject matter (weâ€™ve done a massive amount of research into Spiritualism).
TF: And you are providing young people with social exclusions an opportunity to work on this feature, how noble?
One of my stage plays, Kamikaze, toured high schools and young offenders units. That was a humbling experience and I got to meet a lot of very special staff and young people. While that play was touring I knew at some point in the future (if I was able to) I would reach out to them and get them involved somehow.
