thirteen theater, jazz and art projects in 2013 to engage and excite Orlando

UPDATE: The Big Easy Express screening is SOLD OUT! We will substitute a suitable reward for packages that include tickets. Thanks to our backers! Only 68 hours to go!

Be part of a year of local and sustainable creative arts. I'm writing, producing and presenting 13 events of music, theater, writing, photography and community to engage and excite Orlando and a worldwide Internet audience in 2013. My year of living creatively.

Two plays and a live Holiday radio drama; five jazz shows, including a supper club and house concert after-hours cabaret; a show of my photographs; a creative artists' workshop; a workshop on jazz improvisation; a movie screening; and a spoken word performance, all under the banner of 13in13. We're so close to guaranteeing that these events will happen and every artist involved gets paid -- please help make this happen.

If we show organizations that audiences really do want to see original local theater and hear musicians playing their own compositions and are willing to contribute to it, perhaps we'll see more investment in creative work from other sources. I'm using latest technologies to both finance and produce these events by using Kickstarter, Gathr, Livestream, MultiVid, Square and more. There will be videos, audio recordings, photo books and posters at the finish, and almost all of the events will have tickets available to the public (some at no charge) and will be streamed live online.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

My risk is that without a successful campaign, half of the 13in13 events will not happen (6 are already scheduled and booked). When the campaign finishes successfully, we're in for a very busy year ...

My artistic philosophy has always been: if you want the public to see your work, invite the public. No one will knock on your door and demand a new play, piece of music or drawing ... creating your own audience is the surest way to guarantee you'll have one. So when I want a play produced, I hire actors and a director and produce it; when I want to hear local jazz musicians playing their own material, I open my house and invite an audience to hear them. Live streaming of new theater, home-grown jazz festivals, new ways of reaching audiences - when it needs doing, I take control of my art and do it, even if it has never been done before.

32 musicians have already performed for Jazz On Edge; I have written and produced my plays for more than 10 years. My experience and knowledge allows me to say that full funding for this (admittedly) rather mad project means every event will happen, period. Scheduling, casting, wrangling musicians and actors, finishing scripts, finding spaces for everything ... that's the easy part!
