After a Win at ’48 Hour Film Project Portland’  Native Crew Looks for Win in Paris

You might remember hearing of the film Fancy Dancer, a documentary film project by Isaac Trimble a few years back in which he documented the process of learning culture and wellness by fancy dancing. Well he’s involved in a new project which has already received accolades in the industry.

Produced by Isaac Trimble, and directed by LaRonn Katchia, short film Missing Indigenous boasts an all Native American crew, lovingly known as Team RedFawn. The film recently won “Best Film” and “Best Cinematography” in Portland’s 48 Hour Film Project, and seeks to tell a story of a people too often underrepresented among mainstream audiences.

Heya peeps! Just another reminder about our film “Red Hand,” a Native American “Terminator” meets “The Matrix.” Did you know that if only 1/4 — ONE FOURTH! — of my Facebook friends pitched in just $10, we’d meet our goal and be able to make our movie. Please consider helping us out and making a dream come true. Thank you for your support!!!
