fund this: indie feature film year of the bunny

This one comes to you from my filmmaker friend Gary Chan, who is currently working on fundraising for his feature film Year of the Bunny, and recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to make it happen.

The film, starring Roger Fan, is about a man traveling the world who goes on an adventure of discovery when he loses his best friend -- a stuffed animal bunny -- in a Hong Kong taxi cab. Along the way, on his quest get the bunny back, he encounters a colorful cast of characters.

A short prequel of the film, Easter Bunny, recently premiered at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival. Here's the trailer:

Here's some more background on the project from Gary:
Before I got married I would write about unrequited love, rejection and loneliness. Fun stuff. Now that I'm a little older, married with a family, things have changed. What would it be like to lose everything I hold dear? That's what Year of the Bunny is about. It's funny... it's sad... Oddly, those are the types of films I like to watch... and make. Year of the Bunny will explore love, loss, forgiveness and reconciliation. Themes every human has to deal with at some point in their lives...especially someone who loses a bunny in Hong Kong. This film is for people who've lost bunnies... or who've dealt with those other things too.
This project has been a long time coming. Gary's a good guy, and it would be awesome to see some good people come together to support his vision and help make it become a reality. They're trying to raise $75,000 by June 27. For more information about the film, and to donate, go to the Kickstarter page here and the Year of the Bunny website here.
