Film Premiere, Kickstarter, and Google Hangout

In April, Jeremy Collins announced his latest film + book project: Drawn. Recently launching their project on Kickstarter, the film raised over 50K in just 1 week. But the campaign does not stop there.

The Wolf and The MedallionThe outpouring of community support re-surfaced demand for another one of Jeremy’s projects: The Wolf and The Medallion, presented as a letter home to his son from a climb on the China/Mongolia border. “As vulnerable as it is to put a piece of art on the wall and say “here is my art, world, what do you think?”; sharing my film online with the VIRTUAL world is even more so,” he told The Joy Trip Project. “Creating The Wolf & The Medallion was so important to me on so many levels, and I have held it back online because it just didn’t feel like the right venue. I was nostalgic for the live show with the musicians and performance aspect. After three years of requests and such a recent outpouring of support for Drawn, I decided it was time to let it have its online premiere.”

Partnering with ItsAShort, a new online distribution resource for short films, the film will finally have it’s online premiere on May 12th, 2014. Following the event, Jeremy and composer Andy Michael will be online to answer your questions in a Google Hangout. Working in collaboration with The Joy Trip Project, we will be hosting the second half of the hangout. We’ll ask your burning questions about his kickstarter campaign, film distribution, and what we can expect next.

What They’re Saying

anthony_claudia_largeWhether you’re already in the business or just getting started, I think Adventure Film School is one of the best investments you can make in your career as a filmmaker.

Filmmaking is more than just capturing pretty pictures and witty dialogue, it’s a complicated business. There are plenty of courses out there that will teach you all about that fancy camera you just bought and how to navigate the latest editing software. I know, I’ve slept through most of them. But what AFS delivers is unmatched by any other program available. You learn what it actually takes to deliver a film from concept to finished product. How do you tell a story? How do you keep your audience engaged? What’s happening in your scene? How will these shots cut? What the hell is my film about? You learn to wrangle your crew. Set up the shot. Stick to the production schedule. Haul and manage your gear. And finally you have to get it all done in time for the premiere. Now take all of that and climb to the top of Machu Picchu, or strap on skis and trek deep into avalanche country. Now you’re making a film. The terrain will inspire and challenge you, the schedule will exhaust you, and Michael Brown and his team will guide you every step of the way. No classroom experience even comes close. No matter what genre of filmmaking you are into, or what your role is on set, you need to go to Adventure Film School. I’ve already been on two trips this year and I plan on coming back until they kick me out. It’s the most authentic and rewarding experience out there.
