Alexander Kohnstamm, a filmmaker (Kobamm Productions, LLC) from Minnesota has a current short film, Rosie. The film means a lot to him as he wrote the script with his father, a former Assistant Attorney General for the State of Minnesota. They wrote the script together back in January while his father was battling pancreatic cancer. The former A.G. recently passed away and this has motivated Kohnstamm to complete this film and dedicate it in his honor.
Rosie is a dramatic short film about a young lawyer and father named Kent who struggles to balance his hectic work schedule with his home life and family. After Kent is assigned a case involving a grieving father who recently lost his daughter, he is inspired and determined to learn how to become a better father.
“The case is based around a real case that my father worked on when he was just starting out as a lawyer for the state of Minnesota. My father shared this story with me when we were discussing what motivated him to be a good father.” Says Kohnstamm
Kohnstamm has teamed up with producer, Ingrid Moss with Moss Studios, LLC., to help make the film and in doing so have launched an Indiegogo crowd-funding campaign to raise money for the film. They hope to raise enough funds to complete the film and simultaneously support pancreatic cancer awareness.
The filmmakers have pledged to donate 10 percent of all donations they receive to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, a national non-profit organization creating hope in a comprehensive way through research, patient support, community outreach and advocacy for a cure.
There are about three weeks left in the campaign and it is almost 50% funded. They just need that extra push to go over the finish line.
