Well, we can only hope so. I'm sure some of you feel besieged by my cries for help. But we are getting near the end and, with that in mind, I've launched what I hope will be my final DO IT AGAIN campaign. The good news: We have a TV version ready and eight PBS markets have bought in. We're hoping for more, provided we can convince them that DO IT AGAIN is more compelling viewing than the latest Sha Na Na reunion.
What can you do? If you've got a few spare bucks, send him our way. If you don't, totally understood. You have already all been so generous. Move making is expensive and I've made peace with the fact I will never make my investment back. But I am hoping to not add any more debt to that line. Hence, THE FINAL CAMPAIGN!
We're a week out from our fabulous screening in Wichita. Even if you can't make it - and you should come, it's only in Kansas! - you can help by making a donation through the Tallgrass invitation. Any amount helps!
Hey loyal supporters.... Only a couple days left for our latest Kickstarter campaign. So don't hesitate to send this along to friends who you think might want to help, no matter how little at a time. This festival run hasn't been cheap, with the constant mailings - tomorrow I send 12 DVDs to our new sales agent, applications to festivals in Canada and NYC and there are of course more buttons to press - and all the assorted unexpecteds to pay for. Thanks for your help, again. You've made it possible for us to push Do It Again. Geoff
Hey everybody... In celebration of our successful Full Frame screening, we had three 12-by-18 posters signed by our fabulous band, including dB's Chris Stamey and Peter Holsapple and Let's Active's leader and REM/Pavement producer Mitch Easter.
This is to specifically help me get to Nashville on Saturday night for our screening. Rob's already going, but I need to raise the money to introduce our film in music city.
To bid: Send an email to my account: firstname.lastname@example.org

In "Do It Again," we're fortunate enough to have filmed Kinks music performed by all four members of Robyn Hitchcock and the Venus 3. Now, as luck would have it, we've been able to get our grubby paws on the soon-to-be-released cd, "Propellor Time." Here's your chance to pick it up with a "Do It Again" button and postcard.

Talk to Peter Quaife. Ever wonder what it was really like to be in the studio - and on the road - with the Kinks during the 1960s? "Crutch" knows. He's the original bassist of the Kinks and played on all of those seminal records, including "You Really Got Me" and "Waterloo Sunset." He's also a fantastic dude. With this reward, we'll have you call Mr. Quaife in his European residence for a chat.
Pledge $750 or more
Private screening of the film for you and your friends. There is a catch: You need to pay for me to come. But I promise... I fly coach, take trains and will only consume Ramen noodles and malt liquor.
