Hey guys, first of all, an apology. I’m sorry that I’ve been spamming you with content regarding this film for the last week. That being said, I really want you all to watch it. It’s called Anthem of a Teenage Prophet, and it comes out tomorrow (Friday, January 11th). We made this movie on a shoe string budget with a lot of love and passion. Based on the awesome YA novel by Joanne Proulx, this film is about teens, and we wanted to make it for young people without pandering to them. We wanted to make a film that was challenging and rough, that didn’t talk down to kids and give them a glossy, manufactured version of how difficult it can be to grow up, to find ourselves. We wanted to share some of our own teenage experiences and introduce some of you to the world of independent, art house cinema and some of our movie influences.
It’s rare to find an indie film that isn’t bought or produced by a Netflix somewhere along the way (not that there’s anything wrong with that!) these days. But if you like to support independent, scrappy artists sharing their voices and making raw, honest art, please try to pay to download this film or see it in theaters, so that my talented coworkers can create another project like this in the future.
With love. Catch you on the screen,
