    MULTI-REWARD PACK! A “Thank you” on Twitter and Facebook, your choice of a DVD or digital download, a set of high-resolution digital stills from the film, a copy of the shooting script signed by Nelson, and a digital download of the song “Someone Else” created by Mudville for our end credits!

    Mudville is the brainchild of producer/multi-instrumentalist Ben Rubin, who also composed the original score for our movie, and lyricist/singer Marilyn Carino. Time Out New York praised Mudville's “potent fusion of jazz and space-rock,” The New York Times lauded their “brooding, minor-key tracks that... venture into smoky, ominous lounge territory, somewhere between Fiona Apple and Morcheeba,” and The Deli Magazine called them “a sleek, slithering band that is going to eat you alive.” Check out their website: http://www.mudvillemusic.com/

    MULTI-REWARD PACK + PERSONALIZED MOVIE REVIEW! $75 reward plus an exclusive review of any movie you choose! Nelson is a published film critic—see a sampling of his reviews at http://www.hammertonail.com/author/nelson-kim/

    You can assign him to write a 400- to 1,000-word piece on any movie of your choice—an avant-garde obscurity, your favorite Disney movie from childhood, your favorite porn video from adolescence, your own short film—anything, so long as the total running time doesn’t exceed 3 hours. (If the movie isn’t commercially available, you’ll have to supply a copy.)

    Film criticism as a profession is dying even faster than independent film as a business model, so this may be your last and only opportunity to make a real live film critic dance like a trained monkey!
