The Time We’re In – A short film based on recent events

Damon Stout, an upcoming filmmaker who has been cutting his teeth on award-winning ad campaigns is trying to raise the money to put together a short that comes directly from his heart, the story of a man who tries to stop time to save the people he loves, written by Stout following a year that saw both his parents as well as his wife diagnosed with cancer. It sounds both heartbreakingly personal and a really powerful way to channel those emotions into your art. I just supported his campaign, I hope you’ll take a look/share it and maybe support it as well.

"The government can’t solve problems because the two parties are so wedded to their opposing ideas that they can’t move. The very idea that someone from Congress can’t take something from the other side because they’ll be punished by their own party? That’s stupid. If I were running for office, I would be poaching ideas from everywhere. That’s how art works. You steal from everything."

I admire you even more now Mr. Soderbergh.

I’m not sure about the film yet, (though I’m a huge fan of Soderbergh, and the team up of Soderbergh & screenwriter Scott Z. Burns did deliver with Contagion so I’m optimistic) but this teaser poster is such a killer design.
