UPDATE: Now exploding ...

Menschen has begun a new round of fundraising in order to aid in upcoming promotional costs.

Visit the film's new online store for products like shirts, a hoodie, posters and stickers.

Here's a brief press release that explains, in part, how new funds will be used:

Also, check out this new behind-the-scenes video:

——- ORIGINAL POST, TUESDAY, MAY 15, 11:44 A.M. ——-

News from the filmmaking front-line, Tuesday, May 15: "Filming began Saturday, May 12, near Greeley and continued today in Colorado Springs. We will be filming around the state until June 1."

OK, that's not nearly as exciting to read as taking a photo tour of Menschen's Facebook page and seeing big explosions in the production stills.

You know, stuff like this:

  • Mark Mook
  • It's cameras vs. guns on the Menschen movie set.

If you're new to the film, we've been tracking it through its casting and fundraising phases, and now into the good stuff — the actual production.

Filmmaker Sarah Lotfi raised $5,585 through her Indiegogo campaign and that was apparently enough to get going, though a link on the film's home page still seeks tax-deductible donations toward a $30,000 goal to help pay for pyrotechnics, ammunition blanks, crew meals and much more.

Take another look at the authentic costuming and equipping of the actors:

  • Alexis Evelyn
  • With a tight production schedule, there's little time to sit around on the Menschen set.

Considering how our community and many outsiders rallied to help raise $70,151 for Creep! to move forward, it's certainly not unrealistic to think we could dig a little deeper to make sure Menschen gets to the festival circuit on time.

I know one person who'd really be thankful:
