Ska Film Nearing Finish Line
Thanks for supporting our first Legends of Ska Kickstarter campaign a year ago. Though that one did not reach it's financial goal, many people (like you) were turned on to the project and I hope you will join us in the winner's circle!
Great progress has been made on the Legends of Ska film over the last few months and it will be completed sometime this year! Here is a link to our most recent trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7RmiO_JeL9U&feature=colike
For regular weekly updates, please visit us on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/legendsofska & remember to "Like" the film!
Thanks again for your generous support and hope to meet you in person at a film festival somewhere in 2012 or 2013. Happy Days!
