Hope you're all enjoying this beautiful day. My poker buddy Chris came through big time with an awesome pledge. yay! I want to thank each and everyone of you for your support. Without you the dream wouldn't be possible.
I was sworn into the Hollywood chapter of the VFW post 43 last night. I meet four of the Tuskegee Airmen. It was great.
We have 21 days left. I don't know if you've heard about the remarks made by a reporter on FOX. She said that women joining the military should expect to be raped. Sick.
Just wanted to update you on our progress. Today I'm meeting with Sydney T. Poitier (Sydney Poitier's daughter) for the role of Carla. I worked with Sydney in a film entitled Blues. She was great. Sydney has won several awards and an nomination from the NAACP Image Award.
Not finished yet. Academy Award nominee for the Color Purple, Margaret Avery likes the script and wants to be involved. We're meeting Friday to talk about it.
Lastly, the script is in the hands of a named actor who is willing to take a smaller role to help out.
If you want more info on these actresses check out www.imdb.com.
Every pledge counts and is appreciated. Just think if a few laws are enacted to help female military personnel, you can say that you were a part of it.
Pledge $10 or more
So you'll know that we really appreciate you, we will send you a photo of the cast to show your friends.
Pledge $25 or more
This is terrific. But wait! Along with the photo of the cast, we will send you a cap with the inscription: "CARLA". Pretty cool, huh?
Pledge $50 or more
One size doesn't fit all. To go along with the photo and cap, we will send you a t-shirt. It will have the same inscription as the cap. Looking good.
Pledge $100 or more
You generous person, you. Along with all the other stuff, you will receive a DVD which documents the making of "CARLA" -- a behind-the-scenes look at how it all came together. We trust you will not report any flubs.
Pledge $250 or more
We got you covered. How about a DVD copy of the completed film? With this you can hold your own private screening for your family and friends. PG-rated
Pledge $500 or more
Pinch me. This is awesome. For your generous pledge, we will reserve a seat for you at our cast and crew screening, and praise your name for all to hear.
Pledge $1,000 or more
May Angels descend upon you, bestowing many many blessings. Now what you really want to know is...a special thank you in the film credits.
