East Village filmmaker turns to Kickstarter for 'Marble Dust'

Andrew C. Jacob, a filmmaker born and raised in the East Village (his father and cousins worked at Veniero's), is embarking on his biggest project. 

Jacob, a graduate of NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, is working on a short narrative film titled "Marble Dust," a psychological thriller involving "a repentant sculptor attending the closed casket ceremony of her dearly departed lover, Lily." 

He has a Kickstarter campaign underway to help make the production a reality. You can read more about the film, including the cast, via this link. (The campaign ends on April 17.) 

If all goes well, Jacob hopes to film some scenes in the East Village. 

"It's a big part of my DNA," he told me, "and is a place I will always call home."
