Zosia Mamet, daughter of playwright turned kook David Mamet best known for playing the hipster virgin on Girls, has started a folk band — The Cabin Sisters — with her sister Clara. And, probably inspired by people like Amanda Palmer and Zach Braff, they’d love for you to fund their first video — featuring their own “unique brand of folk via body percussion, banjo and harmonies” — via Kickstarter. Ugh, I know, I know.
The sisters Mamet introduce their unique brand of folk via body percussion, banjo and harmonies. This will be their first music video.
This 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. Visually the video will bounce from opulence to sparseness, French Baroque to a simple, timeless and heartbroken. We are hoping to capture something everyone has felt at some point int their lives.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit our Kickstarter page. As you heard in our video this band sort of just happened. We come from a musical family and music has been a common bond for us since a young age. The universe has given us both an opportunity to make a living in our young adult lives as creative people and it is one of the greatest privledges a person could ask for, the ability to do what you love. This has become another opportunity for that privledge. Being in the entertainment industry has its lesser known downsides, like being taken out of the town your family lives in or the demanding schedules that prevent attendance at family functions. We are, despite our wonderful jobs at GIRLS and NEIGHBORS, just sisters.
If reading that wasn’t terrible enough, watch the video pitch…
Now here’s the thing you guys — it’s only a day in, but so far, hardly anyone has given the sisters Mamet any money: as of this writing, only $226 of the $32,000 they’re asking for has been raised. So maybe there’s hope for humanity after all!
