Best of Kickstarter: Madsteez’s Film and Mural

MADSTEEZMADSTEEZ3

My good friend Mark Paul Deren aka Madsteez is one of my absolute favourite people to hang with, and one of the most talented artists I know. He’s painted murals all over the world, and done so with one regular eye and one crazy eye. By crazy eye I mean he can’t see anything out of it other than random colour gradients; a rare condition he was born with.

Mark is teaming up with a filmmaker named Jamie Heinrich to make a short film, and they’re using Kickstarter to fund the project in a pretty unique way. Mark will be painting a mural made of up to 1,000 20″ x 20″ sections and donors to the project will each get one of the painted sections.

Watch the video below to get a better idea of the film they’re making!
