Independent Alaskan Movie Kicks Off Kickstarter Campaign


Synopsis: Sudsy Slim Rides Again is the tale of a small Alaskan town by the name of Scratcher Pass. Unfortunately, Scratcher Pass' boom-town days as the world's largest asbestos mining operation have long since faded. The only thing keeping this little community alive is its feeble tourist industry. The main attraction? Scratcher Pass' most famous resident, the 100 year old corpse of conman, Sudsy Slim. However, when two escaped prisoners stumble into town, Sudsy mysteriously ends up missing and the townsfolk panic. That’s when Agent Dudley Sherman of the Alaska Bureau of Criminal Detection is reluctantly dragged in to investigate.
Sudsy Slim Rides Again is an independent, live-action, comedy-thriller filmed entirely in Alaska. It is being funded through a combination of a Kickstarter campaign and hundreds of individual volunteers, as well as dozens of supporting businesses.  

Sudsy was written by Darin and Chad Carpenter - the same fellas responsible for creating the successful newspaper comic strip, Tundra, and full-length feature film, Moose the Movie. Sudsy Slim Rides Again is being directed by G. Logan Dellinger.  

Sudsy features over 150 local actors, including our three main stars:  

•    Raymond “Chappy” Chapman as Agent Dudley Sherman of the Alaska Bureau of Criminal Detection.
•    Katy Schmidt as Kate Maringoni, Scratcher Pass Tour Director.
•    Zack Lanphier as Burt, short-tempered, escaped convict.  
•    Joe LeCompte as Andy, short escaped convict.
