Clear Cut Love by Tanner Givnan is the story of a stunningly brilliant and stunningly gorgeous tree-sitter, a handsome (and conflicted) prep-school-polished journalist, loggers, environmentalists, and the Tillamook people who live and work in Oregon’s Tillamook State Forest. Filled with hilarious plot-twists, double entendres, and a grand scenic backdrop, Clear Cut Love has an environmental message that is both urgent and timeless.
Tanner and Team ClearCutLove are working to bring this story to life as a major independent film release.
Clear Cut Love will be produced in Oregon, using Oregon talent in both the preproduction and crew, as well as utilizing regional acting talent. In addition to using regional actors wherever possible, we’ve received nearly 4,000 submissions from actors across the country! Several names will be familiar to you when the time comes to make the casting announcement.
Clear Cut Love has a Facebook page, of course, and thanks to the great response we received from our “1 Like = 1 Tree Planted” campaign, garnered over 100 Likes within its first week. Record time!! We’re well on our way to 200 and should hit that soon.
We would ♥love♥ to have at least 200 Likes before launching our fundraising program with IndieGoGo. The trailer has already been filmed with gorgeous scenic backdrops shot in Oregon forests. It’s being edited this week with plans to go ‘live’ early next week.
Originally we were planning to use Kickstarter to raise seed-money for the film, but soon realized that IndieGoGo is more in alignment with our goals: it promotes independently-produced projects and is recognized internationally. Since we will be releasing in Europe as well as North America, it makes sense to capitalize on name recognition early in the game.
Please take a moment and visit Clear Cut Love on Facebook and add your *Like* to help keep the momentum building. Every single click lends credibility and will help us launch a smashingly successful IndiGoGo campaign. Not only will investors see a standout film project presented with professionalism and flair, they will also see that we ‘get’ the profound impact that Social Media has when it comes to developing presence and personality, and for building that all-important fan-base.
Thanks to those who have already expressed their support and enthusiasm for
Clear Cut Love. Please help spread the word about this dynamic new film.
This is going to be a fun ride!
