At the beginning of the year, I revealed my own personal favorite posts last year, one of which was my review of Queue Tips: Discovering Your Next Great Movie, a book by film enthusiast and writer Rob Christopher. This was the first book I was sent a copy of and asked to review for the site — by no less than the author himself! — so it holds a sentimental place in my heart (and my bookshelf). The book was published in 2012 by Huron Street Press, an imprint of the American Library Association.
I was also thrilled to learn recently from Rob that he has an exciting project in the works. He has launched a Kickstarter campaign to finish “Pause of the Clock,” a film he shot 20 years ago. It’s his quest to finish the film — a feature-length film which he wrote, produced, and directed. I love how he describes the film’s significance:
Pause of the Clock is not simply a souvenir—it’s a message from the past about how our society has changed in 20 years, while also exploring those things about us and our relationships that technology can’t touch. A living time capsule.
Such an intriguing project, and I’m happy to support him in this endeavor. Will you join me?
The Kickstarter campaign is open for another week, and you can read all about it here — as well as view an excerpt and a trailer — on his “Pause of the Clock” Kickstarter page.
