Crowd-funding is becoming an increasingly popular way of raising cash, and it’s not just little known people who want money nowadays, as Katherine Heigl has launched an Indiegogo campaign to raise money for post-production on her film, Jenny’s Wedding. And that wedding is between two women.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Jenny Farrell (Katherine Heigl) has led an openly gay life – except with her conventional family. When she finally decides to start a family and marry the woman they thought was just her roommate, the small, safe world the Farrell’s inhabited changes forever. They are left with a simple and difficult choice – either change with it or drown.
‘Last November, MM Productions completed principal photography on the film “Jenny’s Wedding” and they are currently in post production.
‘Made independently, this film is the kind of movie the studios used to make all the time. It is about real people, the problems they face, and the personal courage it takes to resolve them. It is also about transformation and love.’
The filmmakers are hoping to raise $150,000 to get the movie finished and into film festival.
Heigl comments, “This film is about a young woman’s journey to live the life that is right for her and live it proudly. It is a project that I’m so passionate about and grateful to be a part of.”
