About this project

ABOUT THE MOVIE

Bomb It 2 is a new graffiti documentary, my follow-up to Bomb It. For this new film, I traveled the world filming the most innovative graffiti and street artists. I climbed through sewers, red ant-infested buildings and dealt with border guards on the Israeli/Palestinian border.  I made many sacrifices, missed my family, spent my own money, ate too much airport food...and finally I'm nearly finished. Now I'm reaching out on Kickstarter to get a little help crossing the finish line.

Update!

We've met our $15k goal, and now we're shooting for a stretch goal of $20k to help us cover additional costs, including crowdfunding costs. Help us get there!

Here's a quick look at what you'll be bringing into the world:

ABOUT THE FILMMAKER

I'm a filmmaker, author, and speaker on independent distribution and marketing, helping independent filmmakers make their own way in this changing industry.  Much of the advice I've shared to thousands of artists over the years I've applied to the distribution and marketing of Bomb It 2, but now I need your help to bring this movie to the masses. This campaign is as much about connection as it is fundraising.   I respect that doing Kickstarter is a lot of work, have learned so much watching others do it, and now I'm taking a stab at it. Just like everyone else at this point, I'm excited, nervous, and hopeful.

ABOUT YOU

We all know that crowdfunding isn't just about the artist or the project - it's about the crowd. I'd love for you to be a part of my journey as a filmmaker. I'm always looking ahead to my next film (or 5) as well as my future workshops and books, and you can be sure that I'll share what I learn throughout this process with you.

Throughout the campaign, I'll be sharing photos, highlights from the film, and stories from the making of the film as well as from the preparation we've done for the campaign. 

ABOUT THE REWARDS

For contributing to the campaign, you'll receive your choice of rewards, including a Kickstarter-edition digital download that will include extras not available when the movie comes out on iTunes, digital downloads of my previous movies and books, DVDs, BOMB IT t-shirts designed by Shepard Fairey, art by BOMB IT and BOMB IT 2 artists, and more.

BOMB IT t-shirt (From the BOMB IT Art designed by Shepard Fairey)
BOMB IT t-shirt (From the BOMB IT Art designed by Shepard Fairey)

Our BOMB IT t-shirts have been quite popular because of the first film, and we're resurrecting them for the BOMB IT 2 campaign. Claim yours with our $50 WEAR IT perk, or add a t-shirt to your $50+ perk by pledged $25 over the amount of your perk; we'll make sure you get your shirt. (For example, if you get a $275 WORKSHOP IT perk, round up to $300, and we'll send you a t-shirt at the end of the campaign!)

For other artists and filmmakers, I've included consultations that range from a single conversation to a 10-month long Google Chat mini-workshop. This is a great way to get advice catered to your particular project, and I love helping other filmmakers.

UPDATE: If you choose the higher-level consultation perks (TALK IT OUT, WORKSHOP IT, or LEARN IT), you will automatically get a password to the monthly conference call available to our JOIN IT backers. We're going to have a great time!

Needless to say, no matter how much you donate, you will get my eternal gratitude.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Bomb It 2 and Bomb It artists, including Stormie Mills, Mic, Xeme, Darbotz, Beejoir, and Shepard Fairey, are offering their own outstanding limited edition artwork as perks.  Find out more about the artists here.

Risks and challenges

Rather than wait for traditional deals to bring this film to marketplace, I'm releasing BOMB IT 2 via the direct to fan and hybrid distribution methods I discuss in my workshops and consultations. Like all independent filmmakers, investing my life and my money in my projects is a leap of faith. I've been inspired by the crowdfunding efforts of my peers and students over the past few years, and now it's my goal is to run a great campaign and bring BOMB IT 2 to as many screens possible. If my team and I don't meet our goal, we'll still bring this movie to you, but the crowdfunded money would make it much easier. No man is an island; let's get this done!

Jon will discuss topics related to indie film, distribution, marketing, and more. Starts in October. (There is no cap on how many people can be part of this monthly discussion.)

    TALK IT OUT - price varies: This is a single 1-hr, one-on-one phone call or Skype session with Jon regarding your project. The number of these perks are limited. We sold 10 at $50, then opened another set of 10 for $75. Get in early - the price will go up!

    WORKSHOP IT - $275: This is your ticket to an exclusive, 5-person, once-a-month for 10 months Google Hangout with Jon and the 4 people who grab this package. More personal attention than the TALK IT OUT conference calls. Capped at 4 people.

    LEARN IT - $500: You'll get exactly what all of Jon's clients get when he first starts working with them. He'll do an assessment of your movie/project and then make himself for a 2-hr strategic discussion via phone/Skype to discuss audience, marketing, and distribution specific to your project. ($275, limited to 4 people).
