Pander Brothers finance new short film through Kickstarter crowdfunding

From award winning filmmakers, the Pander Brothers, comes a brand new short film, “SUBTEXT”, which explores modern relationships in the era of text messaging.

Funding for the project was raised through Kickstarter. The Pander Bros. are excited to work in this new fund raising format, giving them a chance to work with long time community friends and supporters.

“We are excited to be up and running on a personal vision that is mostly financed by Portlanders who are supporting the arts and film community through crowd-funding sites like Kickstarter. It’s a great way for people to support projects on their own terms.” – Jacob Pander

The Dandy Warhols frontman Courtney Taylor-Taylor, is Executive Producing “SUBTEXT’, which begins shooting in July.  Taylor-Taylor supplied the song “And Then I Dreamt of Yes” for the Pander Brothers’ celebrated 2010 debut feature film, “SELFLESS’.
