A cult documentary tracking the events leading up to a celebratory seance to manifest the spirits of Big and Little Edie Beale

About this project

I have been working with Lois Wright, cast member of the original 1975 Grey Gardens film good friend of Big And Little Edie Beale to create a documentary about Grey Gardens that would talk about the friendship that still exists psychically and spiritually between Lois and the Beales even after their deaths.

The resulting film is so informative, funny and endearing, I know that the Beales would love it! Look at the trailer and you will see what I mean.

It has the potential to become a cult classic and you can be a part of this.

The documentary has been shot and is in a rough state, but funds are needed to put the finishing touches on the film so it can be ready for a large screen format.  I have done all the shooting and editing myself, and covered all these expenses, but need help to do a proper sound mix, and final edit.

What is needed:

1. A professional sound mix.

2. Professional edit and compression.

3. Dubs and entry fees for film festivals such as Tribeca Film Festival.

4. Legal advice

Til now I have paid all the expenses myself, but need a bit of help to reach the home stretch.

Thanks for your help

FAQ

  • I met Lois Wright on her local program and learned that her life had become a shrine to the memory of her good friends Big Edith Bouvier Beale and Little Edie Bouvier. Simply put, I never met any one else like Lois and I knew she could 'carry' a film. Watching her in action is like living at Grey Gardens. The two of us have a strange dynamic that is has been compared to Big and Little Edie.

    Lois was keeping the Beales alive via spiritual contact. I just connected the dots.
