Christopher Abbott's "James White" launches Kickstarter campaign

Christopher Abbott's

PanARMENIAN.Net - Borderline Films, the production company behind “Martha Marcy May Marlene,” has launched a Kickstarter campaign for its next movie “James White” which marks the feature directorial debut of Josh Mond, TheWrap said.

The film stars Christopher Abbott (Charlie on HBO's “Girls”) as the title character, a young New Yorker struggling to take control of his reckless, self-destructive behavior in the face of momentous family challenges. Cynthia Nixon co-stars as his mother, while Scott Mescudi (aka Kid Cudi) and Ron Livington play key supporting roles.

“James White” has already wrapped production but Borderline is seeking $50,000 for post-production, including editing, sound design and securing music rights.

Prizes include a dinner party with Abbott in New York, signed copies of the “James White” shooting script and Borderline's DVDs such as “Martha Marcy May Marlene,” “Simon Killer” and “Afterschool,” a Kickstarter producer credit, an HD download of the completed film, a master class in filmmaking, a limited edition Borderline Films box set, and an invitation to the online premiere of “1009,” a short film starring Abbott that Mond directed as a precursor to “James White.”

Borderline is made up of three filmmakers — Mond, Antonio Campos, and Sean Durkin. Ten years after founding Borderline as film students at NYU, their feature films have played at the New York Film Festival, Cannes, Toronto and Sundance, where Durkin won Best Director for “Martha Marcy May Marlene.”
