I directed the official Kickstarter video for the new Facets Kids app, an invaluable new subscription service that will allow children to stream quality indie and foreign films. I had a lot of fun working with child actors for the first time and trying to create something whimsical in the style of Wes Anderson.
Facets is currently trying to raise $50,000 by November 22 for this very worthy cause and is offering a host of exciting perks for every donation level (including mentorships with filmmakers like Werner Herzog, Ken Burns, Steve James and Jill Godmilow). Please watch the video, check out the Kickstarter page and consider becoming a backer today:
