The next theatrical installation to the live action rendition of YA author Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games series, Mockingjay, is not yet due until this November. But that hasn't stopped actress and producer Kristen Brancaccio from making her own concerted effort in delivering likely one of the most ambitious, tasteful and spectacular independent fan films based on said franchise. And with the test footage now being showcased in today's newly launched Kickstarter platform, I have no shame in using such adjectives whatsoever.
Our Mockingjay short film provides a glimpse into Katniss' life as the symbol of the rebellion during the events of 'Mockingjay', the third book in the Hunger Games trilogy. This is a fan film and is not affiliated with Lionsgate or Suzanne Collins.
We have a professional, experienced cast and crew on board who are all willing to work completely for free. No one is making any money off this. Funds raised will go towards renting camera and lighting equipment, costumes/props and food for the cast and crew (oh, the irony).
We LOVE the official movies, but we also want to bring our own vision of the universe Suzanne Collins created as die-hard fans of the books!
