Jamaica’s National Hero Queen Nanny Will Be Subject Of New Documentary (Fundraising)
2
Queen Nanny

Fundraising efforts for a new project that I think is worth your while, from a filmmaker (Roy T. Anderson) whose work we've previously highlighted on this blog (his self-financed feature film debut Akwantu: the Journey, on the history of the Jamaican Maroons).

Read all the details below, courtesy of the release he sent:

Following in the footsteps of acclaimed filmmakers like Spike Lee and Martin Scorsese, movie stuntman turned director Roy T. Anderson has decided to go the crowdfunding route to help finance his latest project; a 1-hr documentary film on Queen Nanny, the indomitable leader of the Jamaican Maroons, and Jamaica's only female National Hero. Anderson’s impressive debut film Akwantu: the Journey, on the history of the Jamaican Maroons, was a self-funded effort which has screened on three continents, even winning several prestigious awards in the process. This has encouraged Roy to start working on his second film which will expand on the story of the New World’s first successful freedom fighters by shedding light on one of the leading figures in that struggle, Queen Nanny; and he is looking to Indiego.com for help.
Queen Nanny: Legendary Maroon Chieftainess launches on Indiegogo with a modest goal of $50,000. This project will begin shooting in 2014 in Jamaica and Ghana. As the producers continue to look for additional funding, they have taken to Indiegogo as a way to ‘spread the word’ and solicit contributions. In return the Producers are offering contributors and supporters perks such as tickets to the premiere of the film, exclusive private screenings, autographed DVDs, and much more.
Watch Roy's video pitch below, and if you're sold, head over to the project's Indiegogo campaign page HERE to make your contribution.
