A filmmaker mentioned on the Shadow And Act 2010/2011 and the recent 2011/2012 black filmmakers to watch list (read that post HERE), acclaimed director Rodney Evans (Brother To Brother) is currently seeking funding for his 2nd feature film titled The Happy Sad, which follows two couples, one black and one white, whose lives collide as they navigate open relationships and sexual identity.

The plan is to raise a minimum of $15,000 to cover the casting director’s fee, actor salaries and a stipend for the director of photography, with a planned 18-day shoot scheduled for this July, in New York City.

Thus far, he's raised just over $6,000, with 10 days to go... so, really not a lot of time to raise the remaining $9,000. But you can help, so read on...

First watch the video below which features Rodney giving the 411 on the project, and then click on the widget underneath to head over to its Kickstarter page, where you can learn a lot more about the film, and make your contribution (by the way, Rodney also penned a related piece for Ted Hope's blog tited Building Communites & Embracing New Models, which you can read HERE) :
