It’s easy to dream up a movie, harder to write and seemingly impossible to shoot it, complete it and bring it to a screen somewhere, anywhere, for people to watch.
BREAKING GLASS began in the writing group I have run for the past six years. With no more than two young, talented, actors for inspiration and the idea that friendship is sometimes all a life needs to transform and grow, Zach Laliberte started to pour his heart onto the page in a way that he had never done before. The results were vulnerable, uplifting, emotional, amusing and heartfelt. It was a transformative script for Zach as an artist.
After a series of notes and rewrites, the wheels were set in motion for this idea that had become a story to now become a film. With the help of a camp he has taught at for many years and the support of his friends and family, Zach and his wife Lys were able to shoot the film this past summer with a crew of as little as four people. But there is more that needs to be done.
The movie needs to be completed. It needs to go through the arduous process of post-production which can be time consuming and expensive, even for a small film like Breaking Glass. There is a lot of noise in the crowdfunding atmosphere trying to get your attention. I believe in Zach and I believe in his movie. I have already put my money where my mouth is and am merely asking that, if you have a few bucks and a strong desire to support independent films and storytellers, please check out the video presentation that has been put together for the film’s Kickstarter campaign and donate and/or share it with everyone in your online community.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
