Following in the grand tradition of Zach Braff and Melissa Joan Hart, Zosia Mamet wants your money.

The 25-year-old actress, who is the daughter of director David Mamet and actress Lindsay Crouse, is known for playing the lovable neurotic Shoshanna Shapiro on the successful HBO television show "Girls." In her spare time when she's not shooting the show, however, Mamet wants to make a music video.

Performing under the name The Cabin Sisters, Mamet and her sister Willa are looking to raise $32,000 through Kickstarter to finance a music video for the song "Bleak Love."

"This music video for 'Bleak Love' is our chance to realize through the visual artistry of some very talented people the universal feeling of un-requited love," the sisters write on their Kickstarter page. "Visually the video will bounce from opulence to sparseness, French Baroque to a simple, timeless and heartbroken. We are hoping to capture something everyone has felt at some point in their lives.

As of 8:15 p.m. EST on Wednesday, donations had reached $1,263 from 32 people. The Mamet sisters gave themselves ten days to raise the remaining $30,737. Lest donors are expected to invest simply because they believe in the project, Zosia and Willa have offered up some incentives. A donation of $100 gets the donor a signed photo of the sisters and a digital download of their album, while a $2,000 donation gets the donor a 45-minute Skype session with the sisters, and $7,000 gives the chance to star as an extra in the music video.

Mamet's "Girls" costar Lena Dunham publicized the campaign on Wednesday, adding her two cents on Mamet's fundraising efforts.


Lena Dunham
Zosia is making a very un-Shosh like music video (with a little help from her friends)

We did a spot of crowd sourcing for Tiny Furniture festival dues- there are still people I want to avoid because I forgot to send out prizes

That's just to say, not sure about Kickstarter yet (though I do believe it can coexist w/ charity) but am sure I love my friend & coworker!
