FINISHING FUNDS FOR INDEPENDENT FILM: DRY MOON

Donation protected
DRY MOON is the first feature film project by Andrea DeGette. It has been in production for years-- and with your support is on the cusp of completion!

The ideas for DRY MOON began in the mid-90s as a way for me to make sense of my relocation: 4th Generation Coloradoan to exotic…North Carolina. Such a culture shock! Very quickly I set out to make sense of this alien land, so filled with contradictions and beauty. Our home, like Gracie’s, is not a black-and-white world. Not even close.

My first feature has not been completed on schedule, in fact, quite the opposite. DRY MOON has had to fit into my life ad hoc, whenever I can bring myself to the work. It has come together as my other films, from a universal force outside myself.

The diegesis of DRY MOON evolved from film to fiction and back again...even foreshadowing real-life events for the cast and crew. Andrea DeGette is a full-time teacher, award-winning filmmaker, and mother of three children—all of whom are featured in DRY MOON.

DRY MOON is a tantalizing tale of two women suspended in shadows of memory and the dark unreality of small-town life. Beauty holds the truth in DRY MOON, and the truth holds the beauty as well. I have tried to adhere to as much of the Dogme manifesto as possible: real people, real locations, real sound, real music, props, and wardrobe. The shooting of the film was off-hours over two, then three years. The commitment of everyone involved has been steadfast. As I move into this last phase of production I want to reveal the untold mysteries of my film and the deep living spring that brought my vision to light. Please give your attention to DRY MOON and bring your truth to the creative process!

DeGette graduated from NYU Film School and Duke University, MA. She has lived and taught in historic Hillsborough, NC since 1994 which is also the setting for DRY MOON. She is a writer, director, producer, and educator.
