Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 15, 2013
Crafty Shoddmanship, composed of ambitious writer/actors Christine Moore, Cassie Ramoska, and Amanda McCann, began preproduction on their new feature film, June, Adrift, by launching a Kickstarter campaign (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/248524544/june-adrift-a-real-indie-feature-no-offense-zach-b) inspired by Zach Braff’s own recent fundraising project, Wish I Was Here.
The team said they were hesitant to begin a campaign prior to principle photography but felt encouraged by not only Zach’s humorous plea for money from his supporters (Crafty Shoddmanship donated, because Garden State was brilliant) but by his desire to make an independent film he would be able to retain creative control over.
Following in Zach Braff’s footsteps, the June, Adrift Kickstarter video begins with Moore making a humorous appeal to “her” Scrubs fans (she was a featured extra in a season 9 episode) and directing them to check out her own project. The women later offer Braff a special incentive in exchange for supporting some like-minded indie filmmakers.
The trio came together after each member wrote and produced her own short projects, then decided to collaborate on a feature length film. Previously, Moore has worked on 2 Broke Girls, and is a member of sketch team, Casual Mondays. Ramoska has appeared on The Colbert Report, and created Bunclaw Cloverdriver, a one-take film. McCann self-produced her own comedic web series, Gettin’ Skinny.
June, Adrift is a dramatic comedy about 3 women in their 20s impulsively fleeing dispiriting lives to build a sailboat in rural Maryland. Production is slated to begin in early July on location in Chesapeake City, Maryland.
