Italian Filmmaker Emanuele Michetti Seeks Funding via Indiegogo for His Upcoming Film 'Addictions'

Set in the New York City, Addictions is an original movie about love, sex, and drug addictions. Emanuele Michetti has just launched an Indiegogo campaign to meet the expenses for the making of this upcoming movie.


New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/06/2015 -- New York City based Italian Filmmaker Emanuele Michetti has more than a decade's experience in producing video art projects, music videos, documentaries, and narrative films. Most of his films are focused on social issues such as mental illness, loss, addictions, climate change, and prisoners' rights. With his unique esthetic sense, Emanuele creates characters that are abandoned by the society while battling an internal struggle. Many of his films have been screened in globally acclaimed festivals and theaters with impressive reviews.

Emanuele strongly believes that the internet, electronic devices, prescriptions pills, sex, or anything else that causes a dependency should be categorized as a 'drug.' He feels that the idea of unconditional love is missing from modern day relationships because of so many distractions. With his upcoming film 'Addictions,' Emanuele has made a sincere effort to highlight the devolution of personal connections in the society under the influence of technology and media.

The story of Addictions revolves around three New Yorkers in their late 20s and their struggle to build real relationships. Through social integrations amongst common people, the movie narrates common everyday issues such as the lack of genuine relationships, people's inability to communicate, and their unfulfilled cravings for love.

Though the funding goal for his Indiegogo campaign is $10,000, Emanuele needs $20,000 to complete his film in the best possible way. All funds raised from Indiegogo will be spent on equipment rental, locations, insurance, permits, gas, food, accommodation, transportation, props, etc. This campaign will close on January 29, 2015.
