Erie, PA, March 08, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Lyons Den Productions is proud to announce their upcoming feature film, “Unearth,” has been selected for Big Vision Empty Wallet’s Kickstart Diversity Program.
Launched in October 2015, the Kickstart Diversity Program features an incentive package that supports underrepresented creators. The program supports films, pilots, web series, and multi-platform projects with diverse teams. Selected projects receive significant discounts from vendors and service providers nationwide to create savings in all stages of production, in addition to access to an exclusive Distribution Lab.
Equal parts docu-drama and eco-horror, “Unearth” is about the terrifying repercussions sown by shortsighted decisions, and what our children reap from our actions. Dorota Swies, co-director and producer for “Unearth” said: “We want to thank Big Vision Empty Wallet's co-founders, Alex Cirillo and Dani Faith Leonard, for supporting women in the industry. Their assistance at this stage in our production provides us with an opportunity to bring our uncompromised vision to life.”
This announcement comes after a successful Kickstarter campaign for “Unearth” in late 2015. The film has also received “Staff Pick/Projects We Love” and “Project of the Day” honors from Kickstarter and “Project of the Day” recognition from IndieWire. The filmmakers are currently assembling talent, seeking investors and expect to begin production this year in northwestern Pennsylvania.
