One of the ladies on HBO's Girls is taking her talents to Kickstarter.
Zosia Mamet, who plays Shoshanna Shapiro on the program, is trying to raise $32,000 to create a music video with her sister Clara. The duo perform as a group called The Cabin Sisters.
“Your support for this project will be the backbone to a body of excited filmmakers, producers and musicians all making something from nothing,” The Cabin Sisters wrote on their Kickstarter page. “The music video for ‘Bleak Love’ is our chance to realize through the visual artistry of some very talented people the universal feeling of un-requited love.”
The duo calls their sound a “unique brand of folk via body percussion, banjo and harmonies." A preview of their music can be heard at the site. Currently they need about $30,000 in their last 8 days of the fundraiser.
Lena Dunham, the creator of Girls, has Tweeted in support of the project.
“Zosia is making a very un-Shosh like music video (with a little help from her friends),” Dunham wrote. “We did a spot of crowd sourcing for Tiny Furniture festival dues- there are still people I want to avoid because I forgot to send out prizes.
“That’s just to say, not sure about Kickstarter yet (tho I do believe it can coexist w/ charity) but am sure I love my friend & coworker!” she added.
For a mere $7,000, you can be an extra in the video.
