Kickstarter – Saving Allison
Local filmmaker Matt Shannon is using Kickstarter to raise funds for Saving Allison, his 25-minute original short screenplay, inspired by the picturesque vistas of Orcas Island. The film narrative follows a young military widow struggling to come to terms with her loss. She travels to a remote island– Orcas Island, that is–wherein she meets a stranger through unusual circumstances. Shannon, who has worked as part of the Seattle film and theater community for twenty years, also hopes to raise enough money via Kickstarter to be able to compensate the cast and crew members taking part in the production. Other pledge incentives include: a one year membership to the NW Film Forum and producer credits.
