Help Independent Filmmaker Shiphrah Meditz Finance Her First Feature

 As a young, self-proclamed, film critic myself I know how it is hard to follow and live our dreams. Sometimes we need a little hands up and other times just a little something more. This is why I would like to pass the microphone to the next generation of talented directors. Without them and their dreams the movies we watch, discuss, review, and love just wouldn't be. Well, please take a moment to read, promote, and donate. I invite other young filmmakers to get in touch with me and I will be pleased to give you some space here on Le Mot du Cinephiliaque.

Here's the message that this young and promising filmmaker wrote to me:

I'm an independent film director from Austin, Texas.
This October, I'm producing and directing my debut feature film, "The Dying Eye," a psychothriller set in Edinburgh, Scotland. I'm employing local crew and actors for the entire production and shooting around internationally-famous locations such as the Royal Mile.
To learn more about "The Dying Eye," see:

This film needs donations to happen. Please help me. Spread the campaign on your blog! I'll give you insider info in the making of the film, free of charge.

There are also great prizes for donators, from special edition DVDs, to tickets to the exclusive world-premier/after-party. Donators can also be a virtual crew member, and help make online decisions in the production, helping choose extras, costumes, and even locations!
Partial proceeds from the film campaign will go to a local Edinburgh children's charity.

If you would like to know further about my career as a 21 year old filmmaker, I am very happy to answer questions. To see my past film experience, visit my LinkedIn profile: http://www.linkedin.com/profile/edit?trk=hb_tab_pro_top
Only 5% of film directors are women. Please help me change this statistic.

  2. Nice of you to do this. I actually get a fair amount of requests from filmmakers but aside from a brief mention in my month ending posts, I don't feel comfortable doing promotional posts like this. If you don't mind, I'll forward future requests your way Michaël.
