“Take it Back” by Kettle Black Productions

Good Evening!  I would like to introduce you to a new segment that I am working on.  That is the Kickstarter of the Month.  Each month I will look at the current projects being crowd-funded by Kickstarter and determine which one I feel has the most potential and that I will back.  For those of you who don’t know, Kickstarter is ” the world’s largest funding platform for creative projects. Every week, tens of thousands of amazing people pledge millions of dollars to projects from the worlds of music, film, art, technology, design, food, publishing and other creative fields.”  Keep in mind that each project will only be funded if they reach their funding goal.  Fore more info, please visit their site.

This month I am supporting the short film “Take it Back” by Kettle Black Productions(http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1756715825/take-it-back?ref=category).  At this point you may want to know what about “Take it Back” made me decide to support this project.  Right off the bat, I love the story.  The idea that the last words spoken to a person have meaning is something that harkens back to my childhood and the great Garth Brooks song “If Tomorrow Never Comes”.  We have all wondered that if tomorrow never comes, would the people we loved know just how much we loved them.  To take that idea and add the mob vs. DA element just sounds logical. What would/should be the last thing someone should say when they are possibly in harms way?  And how should that be approached?  I would really like to see what director/writer Brian Potter and David Black have to say on the subject.

A short look at the storyboards by Rico Schenck demonstrates that these guys are not messing around.  They wish to tell a serious story about a serious topic.  It demonstrates passion and originality, something that I think is very important on projects such as this one.

If you have a chance, please check out the project at their website (http://TakeItBackMovie.com) or their Facebook page (http://Facebook.com/TakeItBackMovie).  And to Brian and David, best of luck.  I hope you get to complete this project.
