Karen Gillan’s Movie Project Needs a ‘Happy Ending’

How many times have you watched a movie and wondered how it got made?  Here’s an opportunity to contribute toward making a movie a reality: Karen Gillan, Amy Pond herself, is starring in the film “Not Another Happy Ending,” and there are just under two days left to contribute via IndieAGoGo to make it a reality.

In the romantic comedy, Gillan plays a writer trying to finish a book project while battling writer’s block caused by her feelings for her publisher, whose business will fail unless he can publish Jane’s book and who, in turn is trying to break Jane of her writer’s block by making her miserable while battling his own attraction to her.

Personally, I would love to see Karen in this role; We know she has a great comedic flair from her work on Doctor Who, and it would be great to see a well-written and well-acted romantic comedy. (And there’s no such thing as too much Karen Gillan)  Go here to find out more and donate, but you have to act fast: The project closes on Tuesday, June 19th at 11:59p Pacific. The donation bonuses range from a thank-you digital postcard for $10 to an iPhone skin for $30, a laptop or iPad skin for $65, an autographed photo of Karen for $70, a signed poster for $100, a tour of Glasgow and tea with the director (airfare not included) for $200, and more, all the way to either getting a contributor credit in the finished product or one of Karen Gillan’s outfits from the movie for a $1,000 donation.

  • Any idea how to offer her film professional services? I’m LA-based & work in post production. Would lend my work for not much more than the pleasure of getting to work on it.

  • Too bad they don’t offer a way, for any price to SEE THE MOVIE. Huh? I suspect they’d get more funds that way and I asked them why. Just seems weird to fund a creative project and not get to see the results.

    • Dave–movies are made by getting investments up front to fund production/post-production/marketing & distribution. Ticket sales are to recoup the investment and hopefully make a profit. It makes perfect sense to donate money to a low-budget production that has people you’re a fan of to help get the film made. Sites like Kickstarter & IndieAGoGo are great resources to do this. It allows fans to feel like they’re a part of making it happen.
      I know it feels like you’re paying for the movie twice if you donate and then buy a ticket, but there won’t be a chance to buy a ticket if enough people don’t donate, because there won’t be a film at all.
