Crowdsourcing Mornings: Lauderdale – Short Film

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

Nestled in the northwest corner of the state of Alabama is Lauderdale county. Lauderdale county was established a year before Alabama became a state and was named after a man that never even stepped foot in it. It is home to nearly 92,000 kind, gentle-hearted folks.  This year marks the two-hundredth anniversary of the county’s establishment. In those two hundred years many peculiar and idiosyncratic things have taken place within the county. One of those events was a passionate intergenerational feud between two families that had continued for so many years that few of the children of either family could remember why such hatred existed in the first place.

Imagine that. What must it be like being born into a blood feud, a war that you didn’t choose? This is the point of view that “Lauderdale” inserts viewers directly into. The film follows a boy, now nearly a man, as he must choose between his family’s relentless quest for revenge and the path of nobility and law abiding citizenship.  They intend to give the viewer the experience that they deserve. They deserve to be wowed by, awed by, and emotionally invested within the film. They believe that they would be insulting you if they were to give you anything less.

As of February 27th, this project has raised $1,100 of their $3,000 goal. This project has 30 days left to raise the $3,000 or it will not be funded! For a pledge of $15, you will get a private link to watch the film.  For a pledge of $40, you will get a signed script and a private link to watch the film.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:
