HEARTS WANT in the press – only hours left on Kickstarter

Ok here’s the last Kickstarter post you’ll see here… Y’know what, whatever happens I’ll be so relieved when it’s done. If you think it’s tough making a film, well, try launching a Kickstarter campaign 😉

We’re still only 75% funded with mere hours left as I’m done posting this. I’m a glass half-full kind of person so I’m extremely grateful for our backers! Of course I’m not gonna lie I’m nervous we won’t meet our goal… and if you’re not familiar with Kickstarter, it’s an all-or-nothing campaign which means if we don’t meet our goal we’ll get nothing. Zero. Zilch. Nada.

But hey I’m optimistic 😬 … [well what choice do I have]… and I’m super grateful for my friends who have been so supportive, both financially and also in spreading the word about my Kickstarter campaign!

THANK YOU again Paula, Shivani, MarkNostra, and Dan for your tremendous support on various social media channels!

I mentioned a couple weeks ago that I was invited to be a guest on The Film Pasture podcast [thanks Vern!] Link below:

I’m also honored to be featured on Top 10 Films site run by my pal Dan Stephens [thank you Dan!]. Read on if you’re curious about my filmmaking journey…

It’s fun being on the other end of an interview once in a while 🙂

If you listen to InSession Film podcast later this week you might hear about Hearts Want there too (thanks JD Duran!)


Just a quick note on what I’ve been watching…

Well I managed to see War For The Planet of the Apes and I LOVED it! The three ‘Apes’ films now stands one of my favorite cinematic trilogies ever. It’s such a compelling journey of this genius ape, living in two worlds whilst trying to save its kind from extinction… it’s such a heart-wrenching, poignant story that’s strangely relatable. Definitely one of my faves of the year.

I haven’t got around to seeing DUNKIRK just yet, for sure we will next weekend. The press screening happened to hit on the day I’m meeting with my composer for the film, so obviously that takes priority.

Ok folks, I’ll be sure to post a review sometime this week (from our awesome contributor Richard of Cinemuse Films). I also have a couple of interviews with a MN-based director and a female filmmaker whose film just screened at Edinburgh Film Festival. So stay tuned!

  1. Again, good luck and hope you can get the funding you need to finish your movie Ruth!

    I also enjoyed War for Planet of the Apes but kind of disappointed with it though. It wasn’t the epic finally I was hoping it would be but I liked that they tried to connect this supposedly last film in the trilogy to the original 1968 film.

    1. Hey thanks Ted! It’s been quite an experience so far running Kickstarter. I’ve learned so much in the past few months!

      I really like the ending of ‘War for Planet of the Apes,’ it’s somber but hopeful.

  2. Not to worry, Ruth. WE WILL GET THERE!! (Yep, I feel like now I’m a part of that journey too lol)… Also, it’s amazing to see that you have still have such a positive attitude. Awesome!

    As for me, I’ll be seeing Dunkirk in a day or two. Very excited!

    1. You are so awesome Shivani!! Your positivity is infectious, I must’ve gotten it from you! 😉 Yes I believe we will too! It’s already up 86% since this morning, so that’s very encouraging.

      I will see Dunkirk this weekend hopefully, I love Nolan!

    1. Thank youuuuu Cindy!! Your pledge and support means a lot! Well I may not have the talent or experience but I might have the determination to make up for it, ha! Can’t wait to show you the final product 😀

  3. Reblogged this on Committed to Celluloid and commented:
    Hello everybody! Breaking radio silence for a bit here to invite you to contribute so my friend Ruth can make her much-anticipated short film, “Hearts Want”. Her Kickstarter campaign is in its final hours and she’s so close to reaching her goal! There are a lot of cool gifts you can get in exchange for your donation, which can be as low as 10 dollars. Every bit helps, and you’ll be supporting indie cinema and a wonderful person and blogger trying to make the film of her dreams!
