Local filmmaker Christopher Paul is working on a project and trying to fund it in a way that’s becoming more common.
The film is called Altruistic Arcs and it’s about the passion of three social entrepreneurs who are using their skills and resources to make a better world.
“The project will take me from inside Rikers Island prison to the Himalaya Mountains in Northern India and finally to the High Atlas Mountains in Morocco. There are cool incentives/rewards for different levels of donations on the Kickstarter website for the project,” says Chris.
Each of the people profiled “started their own campaigns of altruism first working alone, until gradually a following grew around them,” in New York, Morocco and the Himalayas.
Kickstarter is a micro-fundraising site for artistic types looking for help reaching specific goals. Donors are only charged if the fundraising goal is met and donors are offered an incentive. You can pledge for Chris here.
Chris is a member of LMC-TV’s Board of Directors. He was born in Larchmont and lives now in Mamaroneck. This is the first film that he has written and will direct. By the way, Chris’ wife, Manjula, runs Sound Shore Ayurveda.
