It's no secret that TBM loves Elissa Mielke. So we were thrilled to stumble across a new film project she is involved in: Minor. Not only does Elissa hold the lead role in the film, but her beautiful music runs throughout it.
The project is being funded via Kickstarter, and you can read all about it (and maybe contribute a few dollars) here. We love the little profile on Elissa:
Elissa Mielke is a singer/songwriter & actor who will be playing the lead in "Minor". Lately she's inspired by Joni Mitchell, Dive Bars, Tracey Chapman, Patti Smith, being alone in forests, Ian Curtis, and the german hymns she grew up with. She loves the idea of a song that is both secular and spiritual. Elissa is currently working on her first full length album and feature film debut. To prepare for her role in "Minor", she's watching films that feature multidimensional female characters, reading her old diaries, and revisiting her hometown to remember what being a teenager in a small town feels like. She is excited to write the songs her character, Farrah, will sing in "Minor."
Best of luck to the "Minor" team!
