On the last day shoot of the film "Friend Request", I had the privilege of meeting Danishka Esterhazy. She walked into my apartment and I have asked her to kindly remove her shoes (the only rule of my roommate). Little did I know this strong framed woman who is helping us on set that day is a worldwide award winning writer/director. Danishka is known for her modern day retelling of fairy tales. Celebrated for her stunning and female -driven films and she has delighted audiences around the world with her haunting stories.
We talked about her latest film "The Singing Bones" over lunch break and how she is working with Scary Cow, an indie film co-op for the production and raising funds by INDIEGOGO to create this amazing short film. She is working with an internationally acclaimed author Francesca Lia Block who released a collection of short stories. They came together for the first time to collaborate on this new project. A short film adaptation of the story "Bones" from the The Rose and The Beast: Fairy Tales Retold.
The book became a L.A. Times bestseller. Publishers Weekly called the collection “Intoxicating” and “heady”. Kirkus Reviews wrote "[Block] uses language like a jeweled sword, glittering as it cuts to the heart."
Here is the preview of the campaign. With your support we can bring this fairy tale story into life. I mean, who doesn't love fairy tales?
