"Connecting" You....

...with "Connection"

Yes, it's me and my damn movie, again. To be totally straightforward, I'm making a last-ditch crowd funding effort - looking for $10 (or more, if possible) from each of my friends, family, acquaintances, filmmaking colleagues, social media contacts, ex- best friends, ex-girlfriends and one-night stands who have yet to support my first feature film in over 12 years. Can you do it? We are at a critical time, now, as we race toward production, so trying to see if this crowd funding thing can truly work and finally get us to our goal of $100k. 

Why is it a critical time? Because "Connection" is live!

Meaning, we've officially launched into pre-production for our April shoot. Offers have been made this week for the lead couple. Can't say their names right now but they are one of the many listed at the bottom of this note. Would love to get your thoughts. Who we get is partially dependent on how much we can afford to pay - and we have to be able to make an offer asap (funds are typically put in escrow for high-visibility actors). We've raised $100k for production (trying to get more, of course) and now immediately need funds to back the offers to our actors without challenging our production budget.

We've also launched out site: Would love to get your feedback on that, as well.

I know there are more important social, environmental, health and other issues to support out there and, perhaps, lots of other creative projects (don't know about you, but I get inundated with Kickstarter requests), so just hoping that I am in the mix in terms of things you choose to support. And hoping that your contribution will not only be small and painless….but rewarding.
