Philadelphia filmmaker, Brittany Rafalak, is raising funds for a short film.
Consumption is about Corinne, who grapples with the feeling of hunger in a world where it is considered barbaric to satiate oneself by eating. The setting is a near-futuristic society where food has been outlawed.
Consumption will be filmed in Mt. Airy and surrounding areas. It will feature local actors and filmmakers as cast and crew. The film will also be screened in Philadelphia, accompanied by a live, improvised musical score. Rafalak says, “The purpose of the live score is to explore the relationship between music and film. Movie scores have a tendency to guide audiences and tell us what to feel. In this case, musicians will be inspired by on-screen images, and for the audience, the film and music will be manifested simultaneously.” The live band will be a jazz-influenced quintet.
Rafalak’s fundraising goal is $7600.00. The money will be spent on service fees from storyboarding to sound mastering. Other costs include paying for equipment rental, props, and location fees. The Indiegogo campaign offers creative perks including professional music lessons and filmmaking/crowd funding insights. To contribute to the fundraiser, click on the link below.
