THANK YOU! We've reached the $42,800 mark!

Dear "Rocks In My Pockets" Backers, you are as solid as a rock! THANK YOU! In a battered-by-a-snowstorm Brooklyn studio we cheer for you!

We have met our bare minimum goal and are ready to move forward. 

We have a STRETCH GOAL of $52,800. $6,000 of the additional $10,000 will go towards the "Rocks In My Pockets" promotional campaign. A film doesn't exist if people don't know about it. We need to print posters, buy ads and pay festival submission fees. Let's expand the "Rocks" circle from 622 backers to an audience of 600,000 or more!

The other $4,000 will go towards translating and subtitling the film in several languages. I am very excited about the amazing support that came from Latvia and I am firmly committed to translating "Rocks" and recording the voiceover in Latvian. 

We have a new reward: RED JADE PACK. It is a pencil colored, original animation drawing from my scandalous 2001 film "FFF". Not all the drawings are controversial, though. You can see a sample below.

Ben Mitchell from Skwigly recently did a podcast interview with me. In it we talk about "Rocks In My Pockets" and many related things of life.

We are so happy that you are part of our "Rocks" family! Lets get together for a party!
