There are so many insanely creative Kickstarter campaigns that it can be hard to wade through all of them. This project, however, immediately caught our eye: Disappear Here, a noir thriller starring James Duke Mason (actor and son of The Go-Go's Belinda Carlisle and Sex, Lies & Videotape producer Morgan Mason) about a young actor who's on the verge of his big break when he has to confront issues of morality and identity and decide on what he's willing to give up and risk for Hollywood fame (we hear the plot also involves a sex tape).  Mason, who's openly gay and active in the LGBTQ community, says in the campaign video that the movie is "going to serve as a catalyst for making a difference for the openly gay actors in Hollywood and trying to shed some light on those issues...that have never been exposed in this way before."  Aside from plot, the campaign mentions that the producers and director Matthew Mishory plan to create an aesthetic that combines 1940s film noir with 1980s New Wave. (Sounds very Drive, no?)

They're seeking to raise $25,000 to develop the script and produce a trailer that can help raise additional funds to support the project.  The campaign ends on Thursday, August 30th so go check it out and watch their video!  (There's also some pretty sweet rewards.)
