The Kicking Continues

It’s been a week and two days since I started my Kickstarter, with the intention of funding a horror short film in an abandoned prison. The deadline is the day after St. Patrick’s Day, and there are still 21 days to go. So, you know, throw some money in there and tell all your friends that they need to do the same.

$645 of the $2000 goal has been raised already, and at this point there are people contributing money that I don’t personally know, which is pretty cool. Probably they’re friends of friends, but I like to believe they’re complete strangers that just decided this looked like a worthy cause, and instead of buying their kid that new toy that he wanted, they spent their extra cash on this. The kid’s crying in the corner but they’re like, “No, look, kid, this’ll be totally worth it. Just wait. He has a great vision. This is going to be a big deal.”

Speaking of big deals, I’ve already got a few other projects floating around. One is a feature-length slasher film called Nashville Death Party and the other is a single-shot short film about a guy and his ex.

Nashville is still treating me splendidly. I went to a beer tasting with a friend on Friday and everyone was talking about how a ton of new breweries are opening in the next few months. The city seems to be growing a lot, and it’s interesting being in the middle of it and seeing it happen.

That’s it for now. Call up that rich friend that you frequently avoid (since all he does is talk about how much money he has and his occasional coughing fits are really annoying (though he’s coughing simply because he’s so rich that he’s accidentally ingested some of that money and chokes on it)) and tell him to fund this thing. He, and you, won’t regret it. Because right now I’m just some guy with a camera. But soon, I could be some guy with a camera and some money.
