Ain't That a KICK ME in the Head!
IN THIS UPDATE
I. FIVE DAYS LEFT to reach our goal! Bump and win!
II. This weekend: two big KICK ME benefits.
III. KICK ME in the news.
IV. 30 ROCK's Josh Fadem to Santiago: "KICK ME!"
Dearest Benefactors -
Five days to go. $23,000 to raise. Thanks to you our goal is in sight and come next Monday KICK ME films will be open for business.
As a reward to you, Team KICK ME, we make this wild offer:
- Up your existing pledge by $15 or more between now and Monday midnight and we will KICK YOU one price tier up!
Just $15 takes you on a thrilling ride-along with Santiago! Just $15 reveals ancient kill techniques that could one day save your life (or take another's)!
If you're in KC, don't miss this weekend's benefit screenings.*
The Pitch did a fine piece on KICK ME's 70k quest.
30 Rock's Josh Fadem, meanwhile, flung himself under a speeding Vasquez with the YouTube release of his "taunt" video.
But Santiago didn't take Fadem's feeble threats lying down - he took them stretched between two chairs.
*Friday night's benefit screening, Shorts and Inspirations, will be an program of Gary Huggins' short films (including his Sundance short First Date), and the shorts that inspired them. Friday, March 30th, Tivoli Cinema, 9:30pm.
Saturday night, Home is Everywhere - startling 16mm Kodachrome home movies of "The World of the Future" in Osaka, Japan, 1970, with a live soundtrack by members of Mr. Marco's V7 and The Wilders. Saturday, March 31st, The Brick, 7pm.
(And if you haven't had enough, Sunday night at ReelSmart Trivia at the Screenland Armour, the winning team will earn an appearance in KICK ME!)
Thank you again, Team KICK ME, for getting us this far!
