What made you turn to crypto to fund your film? How did you do it?
At the time I had less than a week to fund the project and was working paycheck to paycheck as a production assistant. I tried the traditional crowdfunding campaign, but it gave us about a quarter of what we needed to actually make the project. Family and friends then made me aware of the value of NFTs and some quick networking made it possible for me to offer signed scripts and in exchange for funding. Our time constraint actually prevented many people from donating because at that point we had already raised all that we needed.
Why did you choose the song (If) the Book Doesn’t Sell?
The first time I had ever heard this song I immediately looked for the music video. The song itself was such a compelling script in itself and I figured there had to be some insane music video to go with it. To my surprise, there was just the official audio and some small fan-made material but I still wanted more. The song spoke to me so deeply that I knew I couldn’t make anything else until I made that music video.
Why was it important for you to have an all-female crew?
Due to the heavily emotional nature of the project, curating the perfect set environment was one of my top priorities. I wanted to create a space in which everyone felt like their ideas could flourish and true collaboration could happen. Additionally, I am a big believer in giving back to the people who help you so I made sure we prioritized education when possible. Most department heads were seasoned professionals and under them were bright young women eager to learn a new skill. The majority of the crew members were dancers and for some of them was the first set they had ever worked on.

| Medium Build / Nick Carpenter
Medium Build hails from The Air Crossroads of The World, Anchorage, Alaska, where you may just get held up in traffic due to a moose crossing. Carpenter is known to maintain an ever-evolving collaboration built around a mutual love of 80s country, grapefruit soda water, and 90s R&B. He produces deeply layered tracks by inter-mingling raw, emotionally honest lyrics with forging instrumentation. With minimal effort, he blends electronic with analog and draws the audience into sad songs you can dance to. And you’ve got to love the vision and mantra Carpenter implores, which is “Let’s keep it shitty.”
