MOVIES | Ned Rifle x Kickstarter

Image via Facebook
Last week I swung by the Kickstarter HQ in Brooklyn for a screening and special Q&A with director Hal Hartley for his new film Ned Rifle. This is the third and final installment in a series of films Hartley's directed—following Henry Fool (1997) and Fay Grim (2007). Both are on Netflix, FYI!

I've become fascinated by the world of crowdfunding and am constantly amazed by the incredible and creative projects that come out of it, especially with films (another one that comes to mind is the Veronica Mars movie).

Ned Rifle stars Liam Aiken (Ned Rifle) and Aubrey Plaza (Susan Weber). I have to admit, I have an increasing obsession with Aubrey Plaza, so I was even more excited to find out that she was in it.

Check out the trailer:

After watching the film, Hal Hartley sat down with Kickstarter CEO Yancey Strickler (Between Two Ferns style haha) for an interesting Q&A about what went into the making of Ned Rifle.

The film is set to be released this April, so keep an eye out!
