With the campaign, scheduled to open on Kickstarter on May 15, 2021, the filmmaker hopes to gain the attention of both music fans, movie lovers, and anyone else willing to support his project. The campaign will last 30 days, and if it gets enough publicity and exceeds its financial goal, a quality film from the screenplay will be produced in its entirety. The funk loving public can fund this project on Kickstarter by using the link below:


If the Kickstarter campaign turns to be successful, “Starfunk and the Astral Pioneers” will become the first motion picture focused on funk music and funk mythology produced ever. The world has already seen movies celebrating the impact of all other genres of African American music, including jazz, R&B, gospel, blues, and hip hop. By donating to the campaign, contributors have the chance to make history by helping this project come alive in theaters.

The screenplay for the movie has been written by Glenn and has already been highly acclaimed in several competitions. In 2017, the script made it to the lists of finalists of the screenplay contests in Cannes and Hollywood, three years before winning the Best Screenplay award for science fiction at the Festigious International Film Festival in Los Angeles.

The plot is about a funk band traveling in outer space in a funk music-powered spaceship with musical instrument weapons in hand, which has been summoned by The Keeper of the Source to save the universe from destruction.

“Starfunk and the Astral Pioneers” successfully blends funk music and the mysterious folktale about various beings living in our galaxy. It is in many ways resembling movies like “Star Wars” and “Guardians of the Galaxy” while exhibiting the power of this soulful music genre.
