I had the lucky experience not too long ago to see a work-in-progress of an amazing short film, Glory at Sea that I can only describe as a Neutral Milk Hotel film. Those of you who know that band can imagine what that means. Now it's premiering at SXSW and in a horrible turn of events, the director, Benh Zeitlin, was in a car accident just before his premiere. Luckily, he is alive and doing ok, but he suffered major injuries and has no insurance. Mark Rosenberg of Rooftop Films, an early supporter of this film, has made an excellent post about it on his blog, so just click there for the whole story, but I recommend taking Mark up on at least one of his great ideas:
+ SEE THE FILM!
+ SIGN THE FILM GUESTBOOK
+ SEND A DVD OF YOUR FILM
+ DONATE TO HELP COVER HIS MEDICAL EXPENSES
Find out more through Rooftop. And do see the film, it is amazing.
