There is a new trailer up for a movie whose crowdfunding efforts I contributed to some time ago. It’s called Lost Coast and it looks intriguing.
Looks hypnotic, doesn’t it? I really don’t even know what it’s “about” for sure, but I don’t care. I love that stretch of coastline, Northern California all the way up into the Pacific Northwest, and I could stare at images of it for hours on end; next best thing to being there, really. I’ve been dying to get out to that coast lately. Watching this trailer and hearing the waves battering the shoreline, I can almost smell it. It wouldn’t take much urging for me to get in my car right now and drive out to the Oregon or Washington coast.
I own two previous movies that Slowboat Films have made — The Folk Singer and The Kingdom of Survival — and I enjoy them both. Most of all though I love that filmmakers like Slowboat exist, and that there is a way for them to get their films out into the world. These are people I’d like to sit in a grubby bar with and talk rabble rousing. . . .
