Crowdsourcing Mornings: ALHAMDU: Musically-Driven 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.

ALHAMDU is a musically driven, avant-garde short film about Muslim Futurism- what it could look like in a vibrant and joyous future where Muslims exist unapologetically. With a female-majority veteran team from the film industry, ALHAMDU is already halfway done after completing principal filming on the West Coast. We are looking to crowdfund the cost of principal filming on the East Coast, as well as post-production. The project is led by MIPSTERZ, a non-profit creative collective that amplifies marginalized creators through film, music, and illustration for the broad audiences ready to hear them.
We are taking Muslim Futurism, Afrofuturism, and other liberationist ideas, from the spaces of academia and constructing a world where we tell our own stories. A future where Third Culture is the dominant wave, where Muslims exist loudly alongside each other in their found-families. Join us on this surreal, fashion-heavy, and multi-chromatic journey featuring both dynamic portraits and soft emotional stills. This is a bright America that exists tomorrow, shared today. Show the audience that they should have been paying attention all along.
Texture differentiates the scenes and color tells the story. From the different locations: the Californian desert and grasslands, the concrete jungle of New York; to the exaggerated fashionable aesthetic: street fashion meets your grandma’s closet, old world thobes and flowing hijabs, loud turbans and kufis, clashing patterns, obnoxious colors. Finding the wrong puzzle piece for the right fit.

As of July 29th, this project has raised $8,500 of their $24,000 goal. This project has 25 days left to raise the $24,000 or it will not be funded.  For a pledge of $5, you will get a digital wallpaper.  For a pledge of $30, you will get a tote bag.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mipsterz/alhamdu?
