Venezuelan artist Rafael Araujo creates exquisite, incredibly complex art using math as a foundation — but he doesn’t use electronics to create these pieces. He uses a ruler and a protractor to translate lines, spirals and helixes into haunting images that defy gravity and blast our sense of scale and space. That’s what’s up.
On this Labor Day weekend, we are reflecting on the plentiful fruits of hard labor and looking forward to reaping the benefits of all the work that went into shooting Roxë15.
Have a good holiday!
It’s been an intense past few weeks.
Our Kickstarter campaign ended this AM under goal — but we’re NOT out of the game.
HUGE THANKS to our generous backers, who inspired us with their faith in this project!
We’ve picked up where we left off on IndieGoGo, a platform that will let us keep whatever funds we raise at the end of our campaign, regardless of goal.
We look forward to reaching more supporters, making new friends and fans, and at the end of the month, MOVING INTO POST-PRODUCTION!
Stick with this groundbreaking project! We are 1,001% committed to this film!
Believe in me, believe in the amazing, talented cast and crew who came together to create a bold new vision of science fiction and most of all,
KEEP BELIEVING IN ROXË!
COME ALONG AND SUPPORT THIS FILM
THE KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN FOR ROXË15 EXPIRES AT
8.34am on Friday, August 30!!!
If you love indie film, dig sci fi or just want to see something fresh on the screen, CONTRIBUTE TODAY!
The funds we’re raising are funds WE NEED! The money will go to editing, a sound mix, computer graphics and festival submissions to get this movie out there. The only way change will happen is if WE MAKE IT HAPPEN — and something definitely needs to change in the film industry. Step up for fresh, authentic characters — rarely seen representations of women (A FEMALE LEAD IN SCI FI!), people of color (BLACK SCIENTISTS!) and technology (DIGITAL ENTITIES PERSONIFIED!).
The clock is ticking and we need your pledges!
We welcome small amounts, we welcome ANGEL INVESTORS!
Al contributions will help us cross the finish line!
Roxë15 presents an alternative vision the future and a new perspective on our relationship with technology.
New faces, new voices, new outlook: a new day in science fiction.
With 2 days and about 21 hours left on Kickstarter, we are SO AMPED to know about BLACK GIRLS CODE! BGC is an organization out of Oakland, CA created by biotechnology and engineering professional Kimberly Bryant. BGC is crashing through the digital gender divide. (Check them on CNN!)
BGC’s mission: To increase the number of women of color in the digital space by empowering girls of color ages 7 to 17 to become innovators in STEM fields, leaders in their communities, and builders of their own futures through exposure to computer science and technology.
Hats off and bowing down to Ms. Bryant for setting these girls up to be the REAL ballers of the 21st century —- because as Roxë would tell you, technology WILL be the new currency…
Stay tuned for a very exciting tidbit that will prove that Roxë isn’t quite as fictional as you thought — coming up later.
In the meantime, just a reminder that the clock is ticking:
we have 3 days left on Kickstarter.
Innovation is what creativity is all about. And let’s be honest, we’d all like to see new and different on the big screen without sacrificing quality. That’s what this project is all about.
BIG THANKS to all of our supporters thus far….
…..and we look forward to meeting all you new fans.
Let’s get to clicking!
