We've had an incredible first weekend of our Kickstarter campaign! Since launching on Thursday, we've received over $3,300 in donations. We are so grateful for your generosity and your support.
Now that the campaign is underway, we wanted to tell you a little bit more about The UNWOUND Archive.
The goal of our film, inspired by the 1976 cassette tape diary of "K.R.," is to explore the ways one person can appear in the eyes of others, as well as the ways that the memory of a person can come to influence others—even complete strangers, separated by many years. Part of what we want is for you, our audience, to form your own impression of this young woman, this voice from nearly forty years ago.
And we want to hear those impressions.
That's why we want to invite you to share your own perspectives on K.R.'s story. If you donate $30 or more through our Kickstarter page, we will send you an exclusive download of a segment of K.R.'s cassette tape, which you can then use to create and submit your own K.R.-inspired art to The UNWOUND Archive. By submitting your work, you will be joining a collective of artists that includes filmmakers, poets, painters, photographers, graphic designers, and more.
All art submitted to the Archive will be featured on this site, and (where possible) at any screening or promotional event that we host in support of the film. What we want is to expand Unwound into a platform for showcasing the work of as many different artists as possible, as well as creating a community that will foster artistic development and collaboration. That means giving you a way to get your work seen, heard, and experienced.
We really believe that there is a lot of potential in this project and we would love for you to get involved. If the idea of joining a unique artistic community appeals to you, or would appeal to someone you know, please visit our Kickstarter page and donate. Once the funding phase is complete, we'll send you more information on how to submit your work to the Archive.
Thanks again for your continued support!
