      hey laurie post, thanks for the note. from the first moment i saw kevin play in 93, i had this instinct that i was supposed to help the world get a chance to see him do his thing. i first thought it would be having him open for a band my brother and i were in. but that never happened. with his disappearance, that urge intensified, and luckily and eventually i developed the platform of filmmaking to finally make it happen.

      I love the whole concept of this project - finding an artist you loved after several years- promoting him through your documentary - I'm extremely touched at the thought. This has everything good about it. I wish I could pledge more.

      Heard about this in your chat with John August. It sounded really cool and you're obviously passionate about it. Plus I LOVED Cyrus. Good luck with the rest, I'll help spread the word.
