12 Days Left to Fund The Louise Log Season 3

Neurotic and New York centric comedy The Louise Log has been busy these last few months. Filmmaker Anne Flournoy, the driving force behind the surreal and defiant series has been (characteristically) defying all expectations herself; firstly rousing her show’s small but dedicated fanbase out of a deep slumber, Flournoy was able to mobilize her troops, who spread word of the quirky series, snagging it an unexpected finalist slot at the prestigious, user nominated award event The Shorty Awards.

Sensing a great and building momentum, from both fans and the press, Flournoy then seized the opportunity to announce a third series of the presumed lifeless 2007-2012 show.

The two big questions on everybody’s lips were predictably “funding?” followed by “Kickstarter or Indiegogo?” – eager to confound once more, Flournoy announced her platform – and in doing so, introduced a great many people to Seed&Spark for the first time.

With 12 days left of her 30~ day campaign, The Louise Log Series 3 sits at an unnerving 19% of its goal, having acquired $5,091 of its $26,402 target.

It’s not a runaway success story, but it isn’t quite doom and gloom either – Seed&Spark is a new (if somewhat young and confusing) crowdfunding ecosystem with a singular focus on supporting film projects like Anne’s. With features such as the “BE A HERO” button which allows somebody to complete funding with a single donation, as well as the ability to pick and choose what equipment to buy – or even freely lend, it’s difficult to say what the outcome of a project like this will exactly be.

Anne Flournoy may have picked an uphill battle for herself in going with the relatively new and unknown platform, but uphill battles are where Anne does best. Her last minute Shorty’s coup is rich evidence of this. Let’s hope she can swing the same magic for series 3 of The Louise Log, because I would sure love to watch it.
