Gary Hustwit, Director of Helvetica and Objectified is looking for financial backing for his new film Urbanized.
We’ve already spent over a year and some substantial production costs making Urbanized, with over 100 people involved in the film thus far. We’re knee-deep in the editing process now with Helvetica editor Shelby Siegel, but we still have several more filming trips to make this spring, and then we tackle post-production tasks like sound editing, color correction, and other tech work before completing the film this summer.
Urbanized is a totally independent project: we don’t get government funding or grants. And while we’ve been honored to have PBS and the BBC broadcast our films, they don’t produce them or help us make them, they license broadcast rights to the films after we finish them. So Urbanized is being funded mainly by revenue from my previous two films.
You can pledge money at Kickstarter. Depending on the amount you pledge you will receive a t-shirt, DVD or Box Set of his three films.
