Running Wild Films has launched a tremendous endeavor for 2013, making 52 Films in 52 Weeks. All the films will be be filmed in 2013. All of these films will be based on short stories in the public domain from writers such as Edgar Allan Poe, Mark Twain, and James Joyce. They will be adapted to take place in a present day Arizona setting.
They have taken on this challenge for many reasons. First, they believe in the short film format, that it is equal in importance to longer movies and worth exploring and experimenting with. Secondly, they want to re-imagine some of best known stories. These works of literature are timeless; they should be read and re-told (as they aim to do) in every generation. And lastly, they want to stretch themselves as storytellers, experimenting with a vast array of genres and material.
They are currently have 28 days left in their Kickstarter Fundraising campaign (http://www.kickstarter.com/
