So strange to be off four days in a row, but Allen and I are putting the time to good use. We hope to have a sight up on Kick-Starter by tonight. Our goal is to raise $30,000 to help finance this film. That may seem like a lot to some, but when you figure that would allow us to pay the actors and crew something and provide them with 2 meals and snacks over the estimated 12 days it will take to shoot this film. We must also cover costume rentals, props, insurance, make-up artists, studio rentals, and the cost of any other permits or fees. It is all so overwhelming but we have so many wonderful people dedicated to the success of this film, I just know it will continue to move forward. We will be posting information about the Kick Starter site when it is completed and made available.
I could not believe how old I looked on the video for the Kick Starter site. Oh well, maybe it will make me appear more trust worthy. Timmy D. has agreed to let us offer his latest CD as a fund raiser on the site. We are also going to offer a backstage photo book, signed movie scripts, signed photographs of Timmy D., and dinner out with Allen and I, and 2 available cast members. We are considering adding additional incentives like winning a hot tub bath with Cooper (Big Jon), and a chance to wear Michael's (Timmy D.) sweaty lab coat. That should bring in the donations!
Well we are going full tilt to get the filming organized. Allen will be connecting with the film crew this week and everything seems to be going forward. I want to remind any of our actors that I will remain available by phone, text, or email for any questions or concerns.
Keep lighting those candles!
