Crowdsourcing Mornings: VHYes! // A Feature Length Film Shot Entirely On VHS

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.

It’s 2018 and technological advancement has forever changed how films are made and consumed. Each year the latest technology improves the landscape of indie filmmaking. The image becomes more dense with definition and color. In embracing the times, we’re setting out to make a feature length anthology film with the absolute latest technology…from 1984.  VHYes! will immediately transport you back to your childhood (or an earlier time in your adulthood if you’re old). Imbued with nostalgia and genuine love for the all-but-lost, yet far-from-forgotten, format and strangeness of VHS, VHYes! will have something for everyone and make you laugh.

Their first two short films, “Painting with Joan” and “Hot Winter: a film by Dick Pierre” premiered at the 2017 and 2018 Sundance Film Festivals and have won numerous awards around the world. Writer/Director Jack Henry Robbins promises that VHYes! will be a film unlike any (in the last 30 years).  VHYes! is an anthology film, structured around an 11-year-old boy who unknowingly records over his parents’ wedding tape. The film is a journey through his life; the things he records on cable TV; the home movies he makes with his friends. It’s an exploration of all the facets of the 1980’s VHS universe. Think Monty Python meets interdimensional cable from Rick & Morty.

As of July 10th, this project has raised $12,000 of their $25,000 goal. This project has 8 days left to raise the $25,000 or it will not be funded. For a pledge of $10, you will get project updates.  For a pledge of $40, you will get one DVD.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:
