Randy Jones as Fortunado in TALES OF POE: The Cask of Amontillado


Today, June 27, TALES OF POE has $2,500 left of its completion funds! Yesterday our Kickstarter Completion-Funds took in close to $500 more. Again, we must THANK YOU for your continued support and donations. On an exclusive note, TALES OF POE has a PICTURE LOCK as of yesterday! Yes, let's celebrate! TALES OF POE's editor, Alan Rowe Kelly, who is also producing the film with me, has been locked up in the editing tower for endless hours. His dedication and passion is tireless. Trust me, his voice will be heard from soon on FACEBOOK once he comes down from the editing tower. The film looks and sounds incredible. You are in for a great treat! Filled with great storytelling, beautiful visuals and quality sound. Tom Burns our sound and music artist, whose funds you have provided to help pay the man, has been working on the final stages of mixing the film together for excellent quality sound. The film still has more to do once post-production has been completed. Your funds are already helping us to buy T-shirts, posters and create the Blue Ray/DVD authorized by Alan and me. In fact it is just getting started as TALES OF POE's publicist and screenwriter of "DREAMS" Michael Varrati has just put our invitations out to the film community for our red-carpet World Premiere is less than 2 months away at the historic Egyptian Theater in Los Angeles. Making an independent film is far from the Hollywood system. We casted it using many of our favorite horror genre actors and actresses. The finances we have received come mostly from our own pockets and very generous backers like Nicole Alexis-Kane, Amy Lynn Best, Mike Watt, and Bob Kupier. Marcus Decosta has also joined our team guiding us through our Kickstarter campaign and raising money, too. They believe in TALES OF POE the same way you all believe in the film, too. With your donations you are now a part of the film forever. It is your movie, too. Be proud of what you have contributed. Our Kickstarter is still going for another 25 days with only $2,500 more to go. I know we are going to go beyond the goal and if we do this is because of the support and donations of the generous people who have contributed - like you! TALES OF POE is in very giving hands. Thank you. More to come!
