I've been following Happy: The Movie by the Academy Award Nominees for Genghis Blues and A Long Night's Journey into Day. As of last month they had 377 backers and had reached their fundraising goal of $33,000 (actually raised $36,238)! Check out Roco Belic's newest film here


Next up is my UCLA film student friend Jason Kohl whom I met in Berlin when he was working there with a film company. Now he's seeking finishing funds for his short, A Son Like You, on Kickstarter. This guy has a future ahead of him in writing, directing, new media marketing. Watch him on his blog and on Kickstarter.

Jason Kohl was born in East Lansing, Michigan to an Austrian father and American mother. He completed his bachelor’s degree at Kalamazoo College before moving to Dortmund, Germany on a Fulbright Scholarship.

Afterwards he moved to Berlin, where he made a number of short films while working for a variety of film production companies as well as the Wolfgang Pfeiffer Screenwriting School, where he wrote his first feature screenplay, “Old Money,” a finalist for the 2010 Sundance Screenwriters Lab.

In 2009 he moved to Los Angeles to start UCLA’s MFA Directing program. He is currently raising funds to finish his second UCLA short “A Son Like You” and writing his third feature, “Money Fish.”
