L.A. based filmmaker Angela Garcia Combs has turned to the private funding platform, Kickstarter, to raise the funds necessary to release her latest film, "Noting Special," which tells the story of two older women committed to sharing their wisdom with the younger generation.
The project stars Karen Black and Barbara Bain. Who doesn't love Karen Black? She populated all those great 70s movies made by "maverick" filmmakers. Black was a maverick, too, who acted like a loopy old lady even when she was a hot chick in her 20s. I also adore Barbara Bain, who starred in the original "Mission:Impossible" TV series and lent gravitas to that 70's British TV import, "Space: 1999."
The funding description details the filmmaker's struggles to obtain financing from indie outfits who just don't see the appeal of 60 something characters who haven't had work done to their faces or spend the movie engaging in raunchy behavior that's beneath their dignity.
