New Native Film!

Greetings all!

We shot a short film last fall and we've got a Kickstarter going so we can pay a few folks to finish up the editing and score. There's no spoke dialogue in it, instead, all the communication is done in Plains Indian Sign Language!

The writer/director/producer is Missy Whiteman, Northern Arapaho and Kickapoo. The cast is all native. The crew was all native except for one black guy (he had the camera :D) and one white guy (he had a truck :D).

If you arent' in a place to donate, that's cool, no worries - We've been there. We're half ways to our goal and we really want to get the word out so this can happen. If you can repost this and pass it along to your friends, family, and social media networks, that'd mean the world to us too!

Thanks for your time, and have a goot one! Miigwech!

cool.....i like films that are native written

there were casting calls a few years ago here in denver for a "native movie" but it ended up being another white saviour movie.....i havent seen it and my cousin is in it

what state was it filmed in? did they use local injuns or did they import them from canada?

Let me see if I can answer all your questions before my eggs get cold !

We're a small, independent, and native owned and operated. We make Indian movies for Indian people and have a deep love for out traditional stories.

This is a hero's journey type of story - it has time travel and some other sci-fi/fantasy/legendary elements in it as well, but it's not special fx heavy. More like traditional stories. It's coming in around 30 minutes long, and is part 1 of 3. The current plan it to shoot one of the remaining parts in Ojibwe and the other in Arapaho. There will probably be more sign language as well!
It was filmed in Minnesota - mostly in south Minneapolis at the Little Earth housing project. Some of the shots were also done on Mille Lacs Lake. We've got a wide variety of nations (Arapaho, dine, Kickapoo, Ojbwe, Lakota, Dakota, Mandan) in the film , but the cast is predominately locals (Ojibwe and Dakota). There's one Canadian on screen (Cree) and I'm Canada affiliated on my dad's side, American on mom's -so Canadian-American then :D

The score is being done by myself (I wrote the tune in the kikcstarter video) and two friends, one Dakota (and a language speaker/teacher), and a caucasian fella I work with regularly.

I think that answers em all and then some, and my eggs are still warm!
