Shipwrecked Comedy is proud to announce: American Whoopee!

We’re so excited to announce that we’re headed back to Buffer Festival in Toronto! We’ll be premiering “American Whoopee,” a trailer for a 1920s silent film that never was, and probably shouldn’t have been.

This is a much smaller project than we’ve undertaken the last few years, but we miss being on set and making stuff while we try to find funding for our some of our bigger ideas. However, we still need to pay for it, so we’re undertaking a mini-crowdfunding campaign right here using PayPal donations and a very abbreviated perks list:

Reward Tiers

  • $5: Your name in the credits, a link to the video before we release it to the public
  • $25: Your name in the credits, a link to the video before we release it to the public, a Shipwrecked temporary tattoo, a handwritten thank you note
  • $50: Your name in the credits, a link to the video before we release it to the public, a Shipwrecked temporary tattoo, a handwritten thank you note, an American Whoopee sticker, a disposable camera print from set
  • $100: Your name in the credits, a link to the video before we release it to the public, a Shipwrecked temporary tattoo, a handwritten thank you note, an American Whoopee sticker, a disposable camera print from set, an American Whoopee poster signed by the cast.

Don’t forget to include your mailing address in a note along with your pledge so we’ll know where to send your perks!

Feel free to donate any amount – every bit helps. And – BIG NEWS – if we make enough money, we’ll be able to shoot on FILM. Actual real live film, a super exciting endeavor for us film nerds that will add a whole lot of authenticity to our short. How much exactly is “enough”? It’s a bit of a moving target at the moment, but as we call in favors and finalize the small budget that we have, we’ll develop a much better idea of what that goal would be. And we will definitely keep you in the loop. But hurry, we’ll only be taking donations until 6 pm PDT on August 26th.

We can’t wait to bring you “American Whoopee,” full of familiar Shipwrecked faces (as well as some new ones), beautiful costumes, and another killer Dylan Glatthorn score. We’re so appreciative of all the help you’ve given us and we’re excited to have you along for the ride. So help us out, and don’t forget to follow us on Twitter and Instagram for updates along the way!

The finest female on the force.

We’re just tickled to welcome Joanna Sotomura to The Case of the Gilded Lily as top-notch police dispatcher Claudette Knickerbocker!

You probably know Joanna from her appearances on VGHS, in Wong Fu productions, or as the titular character in Pemberley Digital’s Emma Approved.

THE CASE OF THE GILDED LILY IS NOW LIVE ON KICKSTARTER!

“I can remember when I first saw you
You said in my photograph I looked more far away
I laughed and smiled and didn’t say “I am a bit afraid to be here.”
Setting free the anchor and looking past the shore
It’s a sea of horses on ships with no sails, no motors, no oars”

I received some pretty amazing news yesterday, I’ve been selected as one of six female filmmakers to direct a short film set in the official Twilight Universe for Lionsgate and Stephanie Meyer.

Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who voted for me and supported me, I love and love and love you! I can’t wait to get to work and I’m going to do everything I can to tell this story in a way that fans of Alice and Jasper will be happy with.

I was going to write a lengthier post meditating on the nature of being a fandom participant and a creator but then I just got stuck on HOW COOL IT IS that I get to contribute to the canonical universe of a story as huge as Twilight. I mean, can we just take a moment to recognize how freaking cool that is? As a fangirl filmmaker who got her start as a 12-year-old writing fanfiction, I just want to say a giant massive thank you to Stephanie Meyer for being so generous with her story universe and for also really supporting emerging female filmmakers in this way. 

image

As a female POC director, you start to hear so many disheartening statistics that they really don’t mean anything to you anymore, and so often the response in Hollywood is a giant isn’t this terrible isn’t this awful but there really isn’t much more we can do, is there? shrug. It’s so much easier to say “It’s a terrible shame there aren’t more female directors” and do nothing, but Stephanie Meyer and her team actually really did something about it. I have infinite respect for her for that, and I really profoundly hope that if I’m ever in a position of influence on even a fraction of her level, I can do the same for the next young girl.

image

Anyway. Twilight! It has brought me happiness beyond what I could ever rationally have expected. The only other book series that I’ve felt this indebted to is Harry Potter, which first inspired me to start writing and dreaming and scheming of worlds beyond my own. All of this makes me feel sparkly and excited to begin.

Much love,

Yulin Kuang
