Yes, I like on occasion to give a bit of good-natured ribbing to my best friend and hetero life mate, Kevin Dilmore, and believe me when I tell you that he gives as good as he gets in that department. But, when it’s time to “serious up” and help him promote stuff he’s working on, I try to do my part.
With that in mind, check this out:
Outside of Town is a short film to be directed by Mark Morton from a script Kevin wrote. Here’s more info from the project’s Kickstarter page:
Outside of Town – A Film Inspired by a Bob Dylan Song.
Life in rural America is hardly calm or restful for Bobby. Several years back, he answered the pleas of his ailing parents to forsake his career in “the city” and turn his efforts toward being the next-generation operator of his family farm. Now, he is a man in his early thirties with much to manage on his own. His father—beloved by the community and respected as the most successful operator in the farm’s history—struggles with advanced dementia in a care home, his mother is dead, and his wife and young child depend on his success. But Bobby is not succeeding. His crops are failing, his ability to manage day-to-day chores is lacking and his cash flow is dwindling. “Outside of Town” takes an unflinching look at Bobby’s life and the pressures mounting against him that force him into sinking deeper and deeper into himself.
Morton is hoping to raise $9,000 to help in securing actors and filming locations, as well as aiding in the funding for travel, lodging and food for the cast and crew. The Kickstarter is live until August 7th, and features some pretty cool backer rewards.
And hey! It’s Kevin! So, go over and see what my bud’s doing and if you’re of a mind to do so, show him some love and/or support.
