Crowdfund This! XMAS IN JULY, A Psychedelic Take On Scrooge
Joel Clark, who co-wrote with Dave Boyle the award-winning multicultural thriller Man From Reno, is directing and starring in what appears to be a "Drunk History-esque" look at Scrooge. Meanwhile Boyle is on board as producer and editor. Here's their take on the story:
XMAS IN JULY follows struggling couple EBENEZER & CRATCHIT (Joel Clark, Crichton Atkinson) as they live out three alternate reality scenarios, in which they experience some measure of success, but find each dream to be more nightmarish than the last. After an epic journey through these different lives, they are left right back where they started and faced with the burning question of how to proceed/succeed in life without sacrificing the values they hold most dear.The project is currently looking for production funds, which come to the agreeable sum of $33,000. Principal Photography beings as soon as they hit that goal, so if you like the words "zany" "weird" "unsavory" "rude" "crude" and "cat-robot" then why not give 'em a boost with some bucks?
