Hello Parducci Friends!
I wanted to give you an update on the film's progress:
Many of you have sent words of encouragement telling us how important this film is to you and we have been still working hard on this project. Since January of this year, Director Jack P. Johnson and I have been busy filming various locations such as Meadow Brook Hall in Rochester, the Sander's Candy Factory in Highland Park and the Collections Resource Center where Corrado's molds and tools are stored. We have also been busy interviewing authors, curators, architectural historians, and friends who knew him. Here is a short work-in-progress film of what we've worked on thus far.
We are fundraising again through June 22. We choose another crowdsourcing platform, Indiegogo, which allows us to retain the funds we raise regardless if we meet our goal of $10,000. I ask you to please consider contributing again to the film project and share with your friends, family and colleagues. Contributions can be made at: www.ParducciDocumentary.com/Fundraising.
The funding will allow us to use historical images, papers, footage and to travel to interview Parducci’s sole remaining family member, who is 87 years old. Petrol adds up quickly, as does airfare - we need to travel not only to Los Angeles, but also New York where Parducci grew up and to film Parducci’s commissions in Lansing, Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids, Ann Arbor – even Marquette, Michigan. Scanning the images at the historical associations costs $50 per scan – those add up quickly, too. We need some help!
Stay in touch with us on social media!
Thank you so very much for your continued interest and support of our project.
