About this project

Since 1886 Webster Hall has stood as a gathering place for the community in the East Village of New York City, cultivating a welcoming environment that included anyone from the mainstream, fringe, underground, or anywhere in between to congregate in the same place at the same time. 

On August 9th, 2017 Webster will be closing its doors for renovations. In 2018 it will reopen under corporate management. The Producers of this short wish to make a feature length film documenting the last month of Webster’s current incarnation in an attempt to preserve its vibe. 

Please write us with any interest or stories that need to be shared at WebsterStories@gmail.com 

Things Your Hard-Earned Dollars Will Help Us Pay For:

· Production Crew: There's no way to get high-quality production without a trusted team of experienced production professionals. 

· Cameras and Gear: Extremely expensive stuff. 

· Catering: We may be starving artists, but we're still hungry. 

· Music: We want to pay other starving artists to produce an original score. 

· Post-Production: We need a modest pile dollar bills to cover editing, color-correction, and a professional sound mix.

Risks and challenges

Webster Hall is closing its doors on August 9th. We need to move quickly on this in order to preserve a bit of old New York.
